Award-winning charity Chirk set to launch door-to-door service


An award-winning charity has announced that it will launch its home care service in Chirk.

The Rainbow Foundation, which has been in existence for 28 years and is registered with the Care Inspectorate Wales (CIW), seeks to provide support to rural communities where home care services are limited.

Risha Newport, registered director at the Rainbow Foundation, said the change in status opens more doors for people in need of care in Clwyd South.

She said: “Registration with CIW has allowed us to expand our services into home care and support and will allow us to help people living in our local rural communities where limited home care options are available.

“We hope that by bringing our award-winning Social Care Wales service to the doorsteps of people in our communities, it will allow us to help people stay in their homes for as long as possible and ensure they have the right support to prepare- you for the day ahead.


“There are also benefits for staff working in both day and home care services, they can get to know the clients very well, so the home care visit is more relaxed and the trust is established.

“They are also part of a supportive care team that provides them with ongoing peer support and direct in-person access to their on-site manager.”

With more home care, it is hoped that more people will be able to stay at home.

Rainbow Foundation Chief Operating Officer Geraldine Vaughan said: “91-year-old Maureen Lloyd has been stuck in hospital for 10 months due to a lack of home care in Wrexham’s countryside for help her get home; that’s something we’d like to change.

“We hope our new home care service will raise the profile of what great home care looks like while addressing the crisis in local care, as we would like to help more people like Maureen maintain their independence and get home quickly from the hospital or stay out of the hospital in the first place.”

Maureen’s daughter Denise added: “It’s wonderful to know that mum is finally getting the care she needs from staff who know her well and understand what matters to her.”
