Save Elderly Care in the Rhondda / Achubwch Gofal i'r Henoed yn y Rhondda



Care for the elderly is under threat. Please sign the petition // Mae gofal i'r henoed dan fygythiad. Arwyddwch y ddeiseb 

We, the undersigned call on Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council to halt their proposals to reduce the number of Council-run Residential Care Homes and Day Centres.  The Council's plan to "modernise" care for the elderly by transferring it to the private sector is unacceptable and is out of accord with the principle of a publicly funded Health and Social Care Service.

We further call on the Welsh Government to implement a Wales wide care strategy for the elderly to ensure that the standard of care is not determined by where you happen to live. 

Rydym ni sydd wedi arwyddo isod yn galw ar Gyngor Bwrdeistref Sirol Rhondda Cynon Taf i roi’r gorau i’r bwriad o leihau’r nifer o Gartrefi Gofal a Chanolfannau Dydd. Mae cynllun y cyngor i ‘foderneiddio’ gofal i’r henoed trwy ei drosglwyddo i’r sector breifat yn annerbyniol ac yn groes i’r egwyddor o wasanaeth iechyd a gofal wedi ei ariannu’n gyhoeddus.

Rydym bellach yn galw ar Lywodraeth Cymru i gyflwyno strategaeth Genedlaethol o ofal i’r henoed i sicrhau nad mater o lwc eich lleoliad sy’n penderfynu safon y gofal.

    I attend Tonyrefail day centre three days a week. I feel part of a community there, where I am encouraged to socialise by chatting, joining in games, playing bingo, knitting and sewing. I enjoy the lovely freshly-cooked traditional lunches and cakes I get there. The staff at the centre are wonderful, they treat me as a friend not just a ‘service user’. At Christmas, they held raffles, put on special lunches and entertainment, and even got Father Christmas to visit :-) Every special occasion throughout the year (like St Valentine’s and St David’s Days) is marked in one way or another. RCT should hold Tonyrefail day centre up as a shining example of what community care, involvement, and support is all about – and make such centres available to many more who need them, not fewer! (As I have quite severe dementia, this post has been written by a relative who knows just how much the centre has meant to me over the past year.)

    If they wanted to save FERNDALE home for elderly they could, as there is plenty of free space to help convert the bedrooms for ensuite, plus this is only home in the Rhondda fach valley, it will be awful to see it close as many of the residents are from this valley and would love to stay in the vicinity.
