We understand that choosing a care home is a big decision, and is as much about enhancing life and independence as it is about receiving the best, bespoke care. Our dedicated, compassionate team at our care home in Porth receive on-going training, enabling residents of Ty Porth Care Home to receive tailored care, specific to each individual’s needs.
Our care team work closely with doctors, nurses and other health professionals to form a tailored and ideal support structure.
Ty Porth Care Home has a dedicated team to support residents get the most out of life. We encourage and facilitate residents to have active lives, enabling them to do the things they’ve always loved. They can enjoy a sense of belonging and fulfilment by being part of a vibrant community, building friendships along the way.
At our care home in Porth, we offer a full activities calendar to suit all tastes and abilities. From dances for keeping active to cooking, painting and music sessions to keep the creative juices flowing, there’s lots on offer for residents to get involved with and activities are tailored to meet individual needs.
Moreover, at our care home in Rhondda Cynon Taf we also have outdoor spaces, which offer views to the stunning Welsh valleys that surround the home. Residents can relax and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air or participate in a spot of gardening in preparation for our annual Hallmark in Bloom competition, where we pitch our homes’ gardens against each other! This is something that residents greatly enjoy with activities ranging from painting flower pots and making garden mobiles, to potting plants. For those that prefer to take part in gardening from the comfort of their own room, we can bring the garden to them with activities such as potting hanging baskets indoors.
Before coming to live at our care home in Porth, every resident completes ‘About Me’, a booklet that gives us great insight into their history, hobbies, likes and dislikes. For our care team this is an important first step to building a strong, supportive relationship, essential to delivering bespoke, high-quality relationship-centred care. It also helps us plan the sorts of activities that will make living at Ty Porth more interesting and enjoyable.
We work with families to ensure that their loved one is settled and happy and understand that our relationship with every resident, their family, and friends is central to delivering the best possible care.

I am the General Manager of Ty Porth, having been in post since August 2018. I have been a qualified nurse for over 20 years, specialising mainly in palliative care and end of life. I decided to change to care home nursing in 2014 and haven’t looked back! I love my job and the challenges it brings. The time I spend with the residents, finding out their life story and building relationships is the reason I enjoy working in a care home. Every resident is an individual and I strive to ensure they receive the best relationship-centred care we can deliver. I was very proud win the Gold award for ‘Nurse of the Year’ at The Wales Care Awards in 2017. My aim for Ty Porth is to become the leading provider of relationship-centred care in Rhondda Cynon Taf.
