Welsh care homes decommissioned as council focus switches to complex care

Four care homes in Wales are to be decommissioned by a Welsh council in a proposed overhaul of residential care services.

The affected homes are:

  • Bronllwyn Residential Care Home, Gelli
  • Ystradfechan Residential Care Home, Treorchy
  • Dan y Mynydd Residential Care Home, Porth
  • Garth Olwg Residential Care Home, Church Village.

In draft plans now out for consultation, Rhondda Cynon Taf  council  details “transformational options for the Local Authority’s future care provision” which direct funding to care homes with a focus on complex care. The council says that there are no plans for compulsory redundancies for staff.

In the plans, seven care homes will be retained, and five new extra care sites will opened at a cost of £50 million. The retained care homes are:  

  • Clydach Court Residential Care Home, Trealaw.
  • Ferndale House Residential Care Home, Ferndale.
  • Pentre House Residential Care Home, Pentre.
  • Tegfan Residential Care Home, Trecynon.
  • Troedyrhiw Residential Care Home, Mountain Ash.
  • Cae Glas Residential Care Home, Hawthorn.
  • Parc Newydd Residential Care Home, Talbot Green.

 Consultation on the proposals will end on Friday 20 December.  Public ‘drop-in’ events are also planned.
