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
We tailor our activities programme to residents' preferences. Goings-on include arts and crafts, quizzes and gardening. Our minibus is used for trips to restaurants, museums and the theatre.
The Rookery provides a regular church service which is open to all people living here, their families and friends. We invite professional entertainers to visit regularly, and we're also treated to performances by local school children and the wider community.
At our Beachside Café, residents are encouraged to make their own drinks and wash up afterwards, helping them build a sense of purpose and achievement.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room.
We also have themed meals, including food and wine from around the world, and enjoy catering for residents' birthdays and anniversaries.
We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time.
The food is very good and if there is nothing on the menu I like an alternative is always offered. There are snacks and drinks available whenever I want one.
