Welcome to Crossroads Care Bridgend. The people carers turn to. A carer is someone of any age who provides unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without this help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems. Carers may even be juggling paid work with their unpaid caring responsibilities at home. The term carer should not be confused with a care worker, or care assistant, who receives payment for looking after someone. If you are a carer, your local Crossroads Care scheme can offer you support. Our core service sees a trained care support worker coming into the home to take over the caring responsibilities. Each local scheme is an independent charity, which has its own funding streams and is therefore able to provide additional services according to funding and demand at a local level.
If you would like a copy of our latest Newsletter, please phone our office or email us. Our Annual Report can be clicked on above. Carers and Service Users may access our care services on a private, fee paying basis. Our services can be tailored to your specific needs. We are also funded by Adult Social Care, Bridgend County Borough Council and the ABMU Trust to provide care services, community cafes that are open to all and a social club on Saturdays in Bridgend for people with mild to moderate dementia.
The photographs above and below are from our Saturday Social Club, for 10 -14 people with mild to moderate Dementia, when we arranged a WW2 remembrance day, to reflect events going on in Bridgend town during the same period. Every Saturday our staff provide varied activities between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., a hot lunch and refreshments through the day. See our Saturday Club page for more information.
We were fortunate to be one of the charities benefiting from the Mayor of the County Borough of Bridgend’s Civic Charity Appeal 2016-17. We attended several events to support his programme.
See our NEWS & EVENTS page for future social events – our Annual Meeting on 3 October and Christmas Social on 28 November.
