Carelink Homecare Services Ltd was founded in 1988 with the express intent of providing the highest quality of care, to those who need it the most. Through our dedicated team of Health Care Professionals, we currently deliver domiciliary care in the Anglesey and Conwy areas to over 250 Supported Individuals on a 24/7 basis, 365 days of the year and also provide staff for the Hafan Cefni Supported Living Environment in Llangefni.

Our Carers provide a high-quality service to adults from the age of 18 upwards. In one area on Anglesey alone, we will soon have 5 centenarians who all benefit from having their independence, privacy and dignity respected by being supported to live in their own home.

Carelink’s ethos of excellence at all times is reflected in our intent to deliver the most effective care possible to our Supported Individuals and their families, creating minimal disruption to normal routines, encouraging independence and enabling a fulfilling lifestyle with expert assistance when needed.

Carelink is incredibly proud of its commitment to developing its people. Indeed, Carelink employees have won the Health and Social Care Apprentice of the year in 2015 and 2018 (and the overall Coleg Menai Apprentice of the Year in 2015). Our current Care Management team have all been promoted from our care team, completing their Social care training up to Level 5 along the way. We don’t see care as a job, we see it as a profession, staffed by professionals, who deliver excellence at all times and place the Supported individuals at the heart of everything we do.
