Welcome to Valley View Care Home
Welcome to Valley View Care Home, in Dan-Y-Coed, near Cefn Hengoed, Mid-Glamorgan. We provide an exceptional level of care to a wide range of people, as we understand each resident's needs and put their comfort first in everything we do.
Ideal for wheelchair users and those with mobility issues, Valley View has been purpose-built, all on one level. Residents, friends and relatives can easily navigate our corridors and get outside into the fresh air, whenever they like.
Providing a breathtaking backdrop to our lovely home are the spectacular Welsh valleys, views of which can be enjoyed from most of our rooms. Our friendly staff and large choice of communal areas make Valley View a unique, relaxed living space.
Our nursing staff are available 24 hours a day. So, whether a resident needs high dependency specialist support or general assistance with everyday living, we can provide tailored care to suit.
The local GP surgery provides excellent care for residents too, which is a great comfort when residents have moved away from their family doctor. We also enjoy a close relationship with our local community, which residents can easily access by bus.
Life at Valley View Care Home
Residents are welcome to continue their hobbies and interests in any of our communal areas. We also have a packed activity programme throughout the year, which includes visits by entertainers, and quizzes and musical events.
There are regular day trips to local places of interest, including the library, park and the museum, and we regularly invite relatives and friends to join us for a special evening meal.
As part of our commitment to the UK National Dementia Strategy, we arrange group activities as well as one-to-one sessions which residents living with dementia find particularly rewarding.
Every meal time, we have a choice of highly nutritious food freshly prepared in our kitchen. We cater for all dietary and cultural needs and, depending how each resident feels on any particular day, they can choose to join us in our lovely dining room or enjoy meals in their room.
We welcome friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time.
I feel at home when I visit my mother and feel confident that she is being well looked after, I wouldn't want her to be anywhere else.
The manager will always spend time taking to you and will help you with any problems you have. I would recommend the home to anyone
Excellent communications on progress and condition. The staff are very friendly and my mum is content.
I can walk in to the Home and feel comfortable. Everybody is always so friendly. It just feels like going to my mums house and I don't worry about going home.
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.
I am always informed of any changes to my mothers care or condition. Its gives me great peace of mind to know she is well cared for
The number and variety of activities provided by the home is excellent.
I don't know how to thank you all enough for the wonderful way in which you cared for my Dad. You made him feel special and loved. You made him happy.

Four Seasons Health Care were well represented at the finals of the British Journal of Nursing Awards earlier this month with four colleagues flying the flag for the organisation.
Gary Cousins was a runner up in the Infection Control and Prevention Nurse category, Colin Sheeran was a runner up in the Mental Health Nurse of the Year category and Joanne Strain was a runner up in the British Nurse of the Year category.
However, further plaudits need to be given to Alana Irvine who was crowned the Nutritional Nurse of the Year, after being nominated by colleagues for her continued commitment to residents’ nutrition.
Alana has been part of the driving force behind Four Seasons nutrition innovations to meet the varying needs of the people in our care. We are able to monitor residents’ nutritional needs, with technology that flags up weight loss, whether a resident has difficulty swallowing or needs assistance when eating or drinking to the care team.
Nutrition is something we take very seriously here at Four Seasons and Alana’s win recognises all of the hard work done across the board in this area.

We’ll be launching the 2017 Four Seasons Care Awards in the summer. In the meantime, we thought it would be nice to catch up with some of the winners of last year’s awards, to see what it’s been like since they’ve gone back to the floor.
This week we’ll be focusing on Sheena Walker, a member of the Learning and Development Team in Scotland who won the Central Support Team Member accolade.
Sheena is definitely a force to be reckoned with in Scotland, and her passion for helping others develop in their health care career is something to be admired. That’s why when she won the Central Support Team Member of the Year award she was surprised and over whelmed.
“It was a little bit intimidating receiving so much recognition,” explains Sheena. “It is nice to be recognised, but for me it’s not a job. I am very passionate about nursing. I was a nurse myself for a long time. I want to nurture and grow this passion in others who embark on their own nursing journey.”
Since winning the award Sheena has been continuing to support and develop Four Seasons colleagues in Scotland as they complete their Scottish Vocational Qualifications (SVQ).
Sheena is a very humble lady. John Kirk, Managing Director for Scotland, Wales and the Isle of Man had this to say about her. “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.”

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:
