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.

Scot-Wales-IOM-Twiddle-Mitt-competition

11 Feb 2017

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:

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.”

More information about our intermediate care service and other types of care and support we offer is available on our website.

FSHC-Care-Awards-2016-Central-Support-Member-of-Year

9 Dec 2016

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.”
