Welcome to The Rookery Care Home

You'll find The Rookery in Ebbw Vale, Gwent, where we provide high-quality residential care 24 hours a day for people with dementia.

The Rookery is surrounded by trees in a quiet residential area. People who stay here love our tranquil communal lounges, where they can pursue their hobbies. And also our landscaped garden, and patio and conservatories.

These spaces are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to spend time with friends and families when they visit.

All our private bedrooms are tastefully decorated and many have en-suites.

It would be great to show you around so you can experience our homely, welcoming atmosphere for yourself, so please arrange to pop in for a chat.

Life at The Rookery Care Home

A carer and a resident

I would highly recommend this care home. I have no fault with it.
The staff are brilliant always makes you welcome. I have no reason
for concern. I know if I cannot make it down to see my mother, I know my mothers need are met.

Steven Edwards, Son of Resident/Service User at The Rookery Care Home

Due to a medical crisis within the family, my Mother was admitted to The Rookery in Nov.2014. Having previously lived in her own bungalow, with much family support, I was apprehensive, wondering whether she would settle in her new surroundings. It is pleasing to see that she has adjusted well and I am sure this has been influenced by the excellent care and attention she has received from the Management & Staff at The Rookery. I visit her daily and am always made to feel welcome, in fact I feel that I am also part of "the happy family" that reside at The Rookery.

Lynn Phillips, Daughter of Resident/Service User at The Rookery Care Home

Highly recommend the Rookery wouldn't want my mother in any other care home. Excellent care home & excellent staff.

Christine Evans, Daughter of Resident/Service User at The Rookery Care Home

Always happy with the service and care provided. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the carers and domestic staff. Everywhere is clean and tidy. Plenty of entertainment and mind stimulation for the residents. Family are always welcome and treated with respect. Residents are treated with dignity and respect and clearly shows that their care is of utmost importance.

Tracey Rhodes, Resident Experience Facilitator has been crowned the Regional Specialist Services Champion for Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man in the Four Seasons Health Care Awards 2016 and is through to the national finals.

These are the 1st Four Season’s Care Awards and this Year over 700 people were nominated for awards by care home residents, colleagues and visitors. All entries have been of a very high standard making the judging process a difficult one. However, a winner had to be chosen and the nomination for Tracey demonstrated how she continues to make a difference and provide special resident experiences on a daily basis.

During the judging process for the Regional Specialist Services Champion award, the panel was looking at a number of different factors including highlighting an individual who champions the diverse range of services we provide (enduring mental health, intermediate care, end of life care etc) whilst demonstrating their dedication to, and advocacy for, the people they care for.

Tracey was nominated by a colleague. Her nomination read: “Tracey provided support to the Learning Disability Respite Unit at Bearehill Care Home. She was instrumental in developing new care plans which were more appropriate to the clients we were caring for. She based these plans on the ‘Keys to Life’ in line with regulatory expectations. She also trained the team using the new tools and devised a feedback survey which enables our clients to help us continually develop and improve the service we provide. Thank you Tracey.

As the winner for Scotland Wales and the Isle of Man, Tracey is automatically through to the national Four Season’s Care Awards finals. She will meet a panel of judges in for the last round of judging and will then join finalists from across the UK in Birmingham for a special event to celebrate their achievements and discover if they have won a national award.

John Kirk, Managing Director for Four Seasons Health Care in Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man, said: “Tracey is a fantastic asset for my region. She is a terrific colleague who will do her upmost to support the care home teams helping them to continually develop and improve the services they provide to their clients. She is constantly up skilling herself and passing her knowledge onto the rest of the team. Well done Tracey, you’re a very worthy winner of this award.”

The Care Awards were open to employees from all Four Seasons homes across the UK and central team members to celebrate their commitment in the delivery of high-quality services to approximately 14,000 residents cared for in more than 300 locations.

We also wanted to recognise the hard the dedication and commitment from our residents, their relatives and volunteers.

Tim Hammond, CEO of Four Seasons Health Care said: “The award categories are all really important as we want to highlight the fantastic people we have working here in our organization. However, I believe it is important to acknowledge the special people who go above and beyond to help others in the community, and this is why our ‘Resident or Relative Contribution’ and ‘Volunteer of the Year’ awards are so important to us.

“I look forward to seeing all of our Regional winners at the National Finals in December.”
