Bankhouse has been a privately run purpose built care home since 1989.
The provider and the management team strivet to provide a quality of life based on individual resident’s personality, lifestyle, needs and wishes into three different communities within the home.
Bankhouse Care Home can be found on the outskirts of Ebbw Vale in Beaufort village backing on to the scenic Moors looking towards the Brecon Beacons. It has good bus links with Ebbw Vale, easy road links to the new Heads of the Valleys Road and rail link to Ebbw Vale with a short taxi ride to the care home.
We care for residents across the area from Newport, Cardiff, Caerphilly, Torfaen, Monmouth and Brecon. Specific contracts are agreed with different authorities depending on the individual needs and wishes of the resident. Residents who wish to return home to their roots are very welcome and arrangements can be made in accordance with their local authority.
Bankhouse is registered by CSSIW to provide nursing and personal care to 53 people which includes people with dementia needs.
The care home accepts all genders, of 55 yrs old and over, without discrimination. We respect all cultures, backgrounds and the lifestyles of all our residents. We provide long and short term, palliative and respite care for residents living in the community.
There are different areas within the care home which individual residents are encouraged to explore and utilise with their families. There are spacious lounges, a relatives lounge on the Windsor Community, and the conservatory. 2016 saw the creation of a fully participatory garden where residents are encouraged to get involved and grow flowers, fruit, and vegetables on raised plant beds.
The Autumn of 2017 will see the addition of a brand new hair salon and a fully stocked Bar with seating to offer visitors to sit with their families in a different setting.
