Welcome to Bargoed Care Home
We are very proud of our homely and welcoming atmosphere at Bargoed Care Home in Mid Glamorgan.
Residents can pursue their hobbies in a number of communal and quiet lounges. These are perfect for relaxing and socialising and are great places to invite friends and families when they visit.
At Bargoed Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at Bargoed Care Home
Our activities programme is tailored to residents' preferences, and we have a full and varied calendar. Professional entertainers visit regularly and there is always something going on, from quizzes to musical events.
We schedule regular trips to local places of interest, such as the library, park and museum, and we invite friends and family to join in at our special meal nights.
This establishment is extremely well run with exemplary care given by all of the staff. The manager, Mrs Yvonne Marsh has been superb in her consideration of not only my mother but my family and me. All complaints have been dealt with swiftly and fairly and always with an amicable solution. Christmas 2013 saw my whole family invited to Christmas dinner with Mum who is unable now to leave her room. A buffet was provided for meat eaters and vegetarians and with mum there it was a memory to cherish. The atmosphere in the care home is always warm and friendly. It is a pleasure to visit a real 'home from home'.
The care home manager Mrs Yvonne Marsh, has a professional attitude toward running the home, through commitment to all residents, their families and the care home staff. Everyone involved gives the best of care to our mother, so we are confident she is comfortable and settled.
This is a personal care home. Residents are cared for personally and know by their carers. It's very clean friendly and caring. Staff are always keen to help and support. There is a calm atmosphere and all residents seem very happy.
My nan has been there for five years now and it's thanks to their care that she will be 100 years old on Saturday. Yvonne and the team have assured this is a very special occasion for her and us.
Thanks from the whole family to Yvonne and her Team
The care home are always helpful, understanding, caring and do a variety of activities for the residents. The staff treat the residents withy dignity.
My aunt is now in her eighth year at Bargoed Care Home. When she entered Bargoed Care Home she was in very poor health and her outlook was poor. Eight years she is physically much improved and she is still in residence and in her 99th year! She has dementia and is totally dependent on others for her day-to-day care and wellbeing. The staff are amazing - they treat my aunt with the very greatest respect and dignity. They always go the extra mile. When we visit we are always greeted in the most friendly way and however busy they are they always find time to discuss my aunt and generally make us welcome. Yvonne, the Manager, has turned the Home around. Her office door is always open and nothing is to much for her. This attitude filters down through every member of staff. The care is excellent, the home is clean and very well-run. I could not recommend the home more highly.

Three funds managed by County Durham Community Foundation will allow the Vane Tempest Bowling Club to replace their out-dated kitchen and enable them to provide in-house cooking for their social events.
The William Leech Fund, Four Seasons Healthcare Fund and Durham AAP Fund, all contributed to the kitchen refurbishment grant of £2,664 which was much-needed as the kitchen no longer complied with health and safety standards.
Established in 1951 and based in Gilesgate, members of the bowling club are mostly from the local community. It provides member with social and competitive bowling and it is a member of Bowls England and Bowls Durham. Members use bowling as a way to keep fit and active, maintain mental well-being and independence. The social side of meeting with similar minded friends is just as important as playing bowls.
The new kitchen will not only provide a facility for social events but will hopefully attract new members and an additional income stream.
Richard Leech, fund holder of the William Leech Fund, who visited the bowling club with Sandra Brown, Regional Manager of Four Seasons Healthcare Fund, commented: “It’s great to see the Club providing these facilities for older people to keep them active and foster new friendships. We have been able to help them in a fairly modest way through our fund and their request was topped up by other funds held by the Community Foundation. They offer an important service to their bowling members and we are delighted to support them.”
Sandra Brown, Regional Manager, added: “This grant fits so well with Four Seasons Healthcare corporate social responsibility. Our purpose is all about supporting older people through our care homes and so it was perfect that we could add to the grant to refurbish the bowling club kitchen - an essential facility for the Club.”
Sheila Chapman, fund manager at County Durham Community Foundation added: “Although our grants are fairly small, they are often vital to grassroots organisations throughout our area of benefit. The Vane Tempest Bowling Club provides such an important resource for local people and we are delighted that these funders have chosen to make this award.”
Ken Simpson, chairman of the Vane Tempest Bowling Club said: “We are thrilled to receive this grant and be able to fit a new kitchen which will mean we can increase our offer to members and potentially attract new ones. Unfortunately the old kitchen was no longer fit for purpose and the refurbishment afforded by these grants mean that we now comply with current health and safety regulations. It’s also great to meet the funders and have them visit our Club.

Laughter is the best medicine, and at the end of July, we’ll post the best (and clean) side splitting jokes we’ve been sent.
So whether you’re a fan of a knock, knock joke…
A little old lady.
A little old lady who?
I didn’t know you could yodel.
Prefer to quote a comedy legend….
Tommy Cooper 'Two cannibals were eating a clown – one said to the other,
'Does he taste funny to you?'
Or just want to have a good old giggle….
How do you make a tissue dance?
You put a little boogie in it.
