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.

Towards the end of last year, the 42 homes in Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man regions took part in a competition to create their own twiddle mitts.
John Kirk, Managing Director for the Region, said: “Twiddle Mitts provide much needed relief for people living with dementia, as they are able to play with the various beads and other textures on there.
“With that in mind, I set the homes on my patch a challenge. I wanted to see who could design the best twiddle mitt.
“The response I got was fantastic. The mitts weren't only made by members of the care teams, but by the residents and their families. I want to thank everyone who took the time to make a mitt. These will now be winging their way back to the homes for the residents to enjoy.”
The top three twiddle mitts were chosen from the following homes:

Nobody likes staying in hospital. In fact many of us count down the days until we get discharged. But what happens when we still need a bit of care to help us in our rehabilitation before we’re allowed to return home?
This is where Four Seasons Health Care’s Intermediate Care Service can help.
Intermediate care is also known as ‘step-up, step-down’ or rehabilitation care. It can be an alternative to a prolonged or unnecessary hospital stay. It can help you avoid going into hospital in the first place, or provide somewhere to get better when you’re not quite ready to go home. Once you are completely rehabilitated, you are able to return to your own home.
Where would you rather stay to aid your rehabilitation? In hospital? In a care home environment?
With this in mind a number of our homes - with the support of their Local Authority, Primary Care Trusts and the Care Quality Commission - have set up Intermediate Care Beds to aid the transition from hospital, rehabilitation to home.
Over the coming weeks we will be showcasing some of our homes who provide this service.
Our case studies will focus on:
- Westview Lodge Care Home in Hartlepool
- Pelton Grange Care Home, Brockwell Court Care Home and Hollie Hill Care Home in County Durham
- Springfield Care Home in Blackburn
- Pellon Care Centre in Halifax
- Harrogate Lodge Care Home in Leeds
- Maple Lodge Care Home in Sunderland
- Grove House Care Home in the Wirral
Paul Hayes, Commissioning and Commercial Operations Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “Intermediate care is only a short-term solution. The average length of stay for the purpose of rehabilitation is 6 weeks. It doesn’t mean that people can’t leave before then, but we like to make sure that they’re 100% fighting fit before they leave us.”

Sheena Walker, a member of the Learning and Development Team in Scotland has been crowned Central Support Team Member of the Year at the first Four Season’s Care Awards.
The award Sheena has won commends her for the support she’s given to the care homes in her region, not just to her colleagues but to residents and their families through everyday tasks, making each experience special for the individual.
Sheena was up against five other colleagues in this category from different Four Season’s Care Homes.
Ben Taberner, Finance Director for Four Seasons Health Care, presented Sheena with this award said: “Central support team members are sometimes the unsung heroes of this organisation. Without their help and support, some of the functions we perform wouldn’t be possible without these guys. Sheena was a fantastic candidate for this award. She is respected, admired and very loyal, and going the extra mile is just another day in the office for her. Congratulations Sheena.”
John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man, said: “Sheena is a fantastic lady, and a great asset for us to have up here in Scotland. The support she provides her colleagues to help them progress through qualifications is second to none. I’m glad she’s been recognised in this way. She is a very worthy winner in my eyes. Congratulations Sheena!”
On receiving the award, Sheena said: “I’m very proud and humbled to have won this award. I love my job, and helping other people learn all there is to know about care so they can make a difference to the residents they look after is complete job satisfaction for me.”
