Originally a Welsh Baptist Chapel built in 1881, Zoar was transformed into a residential care home in the early 1990’s. Located in the heart of the Rhondda Valley, surrounded by breath-taking views of the valley, Zoar Care Home provides high quality care within a friendly, community living setting. Our professional, fully trained staff ensure that everyone’s lifestyle choice and dignity are respected.
The happiness and wellbeing of our residents is at the heart of what we do, and our home encourages social interaction and a wide range of activities for those who wish to get involved. Our residents are encouraged to live life as independently as they can and partake in all the facilities our home has to offer, whilst personal care and support are available whenever required.

A unique place of care
Zoar Care Home
Zoar Care Home has served the local village since 1881, first as a chapel, then as a care home when the building was converted in 1994.
Zoar (or Soar as it was first named) was an Independent Chapel. It was stone built in 1881 by architect J. Rees of Pentre. It was built in a Romanesque style, with two storeys, a gable entry, and a large arch in the facade.
Zoar remained a building of interest to the local community. By 1994 the original proprietor (a local businessman, Malcolm Saunders) had converted the old chapel into the ‘Zoar Residential Home’. The home remained under the ownership of the Saunders family until 2021 when it was acquired by Accurocare.
If you’d like to find out more about our Zoar care home, please get in touch.
Each room has en-suite facilities and is equipped with a single bed, wardrobe, drawer units, mirror, armchair, television, and an assistance call bell. We can accommodate shared rooms and residents are welcome to bring personal effects such as photographs, soft furnishings, to make themselves feel at home.
Our activity coordinator puts together a varied programme of activities to fill the days with interest. We are fortunate to enjoy strong links with our local community. We encourage participation with local schools, and during the warmer months, our beautiful gardens provide the setting for outdoor sing a longs, BBQ’s and activities, including gardening where our green fingered residents are encouraged to get involved in a range of tasks.
Our residents also enjoy their very own bar which is open 3 times a week so that residents can have a get together and enjoy their favourite tipple. The bar also hosts live music to give it that ‘real’ feel of a local pub or social club.
