Welcome to Bargoed Care Home
We are very proud of our homely and welcoming atmosphere at Bargoed Care Home in Mid Glamorgan.
Residents can pursue their hobbies in a number of communal and quiet lounges. These are perfect for relaxing and socialising and are great places to invite friends and families when they visit.
At Bargoed Care Home, residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage residents to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Life at Bargoed Care Home
Our activities programme is tailored to residents' preferences, and we have a full and varied calendar. Professional entertainers visit regularly and there is always something going on, from quizzes to musical events.
We schedule regular trips to local places of interest, such as the library, park and museum, and we invite friends and family to join in at our special meal nights.
This establishment is extremely well run with exemplary care given by all of the staff. The manager, Mrs Yvonne Marsh has been superb in her consideration of not only my mother but my family and me. All complaints have been dealt with swiftly and fairly and always with an amicable solution. Christmas 2013 saw my whole family invited to Christmas dinner with Mum who is unable now to leave her room. A buffet was provided for meat eaters and vegetarians and with mum there it was a memory to cherish. The atmosphere in the care home is always warm and friendly. It is a pleasure to visit a real 'home from home'.
The care home manager Mrs Yvonne Marsh, has a professional attitude toward running the home, through commitment to all residents, their families and the care home staff. Everyone involved gives the best of care to our mother, so we are confident she is comfortable and settled.
This is a personal care home. Residents are cared for personally and know by their carers. It's very clean friendly and caring. Staff are always keen to help and support. There is a calm atmosphere and all residents seem very happy.
My nan has been there for five years now and it's thanks to their care that she will be 100 years old on Saturday. Yvonne and the team have assured this is a very special occasion for her and us.
Thanks from the whole family to Yvonne and her Team
The care home are always helpful, understanding, caring and do a variety of activities for the residents. The staff treat the residents withy dignity.
My aunt is now in her eighth year at Bargoed Care Home. When she entered Bargoed Care Home she was in very poor health and her outlook was poor. Eight years she is physically much improved and she is still in residence and in her 99th year! She has dementia and is totally dependent on others for her day-to-day care and wellbeing. The staff are amazing - they treat my aunt with the very greatest respect and dignity. They always go the extra mile. When we visit we are always greeted in the most friendly way and however busy they are they always find time to discuss my aunt and generally make us welcome. Yvonne, the Manager, has turned the Home around. Her office door is always open and nothing is to much for her. This attitude filters down through every member of staff. The care is excellent, the home is clean and very well-run. I could not recommend the home more highly.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.
The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.
Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.
Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.
Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.
Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.
Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.
While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”
If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications 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.”
