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.

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.

Story-Telling

17 Jun 2016

Today, Friday 17th June marks Care Home Day, an opportunity for Care Homes across the UK to open their doors to the local community. The theme for this year is celebration, with the biggest celebration of the year being the Queen’s 90th birthday.

“With this is mind we wanted to celebrate everyone turning 90 this year,” said CEO Tim Hammond. “We have over 680 residents celebrating their 90th birthday throughout the year, and I want to wish them all many happy returns.

“As part of our celebrations, we’ve had a chat with some of our residents and they in turn wanted to share their stories with you, showing how much things have changed over the last 90 years. Some of the stories are very interesting and I’d urge everyone to go and have a read of them.”

The 41 residents below all wanted to share a bit about themselves with you. They’ve also shared any memories they have of the Queen, with some having some interesting recollections.
