Adult social care and our providers in Rhondda Cynon Taf are supporting over 4000 people in their homes and in care settings every day. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues, there may be a slight disruption to some of our services.
Please be assured that we are following and reviewing Government and Public Health Wales guidance to make sure that we are able to respond to the latest advice and are working closely with our partners and providers to ensure they are following infection control advice and continue to deliver safe care.
Care and Support at Home
Adult services are continuing to support people in the community and on discharge from hospital but due to the current and on-going situation with Covid 19, there may be some temporary disruption while we prioritise our services. Anyone affected will be contacted.
If you or someone you know needs to discuss care and support please continue to contact us on 01443 425003 (Mon-Fri, 8.30am-5pm) or the Emergency Duty Team on 01443 743665 / 01443 657225 (outside of these hours).
If you do not have people who can help and support you, you can also Request Assistance here.
Where people employ personal assistants through direct payments and have concerns about their future care provision, the same advice applies.
If you provide care and/or support to someone and are finding it difficult to manage you can also call us to request support on 01443 425003 (Mon-Fri, 8.30am-5pm) or the Emergency Duty Team on 01443 743665 / 01443 657225 (outside of these hours).
Older People's Residential and Nursing Care
All care homes are continuing to provide an essential service and are operating in line with the current Welsh Government COVID-19 Alert Level restrictions, while taking all necessary actions to reduce the risk of infection to the people living there.
We are asking care home providers to ensure that appropriate and sensitive arrangements are made to support visits in these changing circumstances. The visit should be discussed and agreed with the individual care home in advance prior to travel.
