Care tailored to be as unique as you are

We offer professional domiciliary community care, residential, nursing and dementia care for older people. We aim to be the first-choice care provider within the communities in which we work. We aim to achieve this through providing care as stimulating and fulfilling as possible and are committed to ensure maximising independence, dignity and choice in every aspect of daily life.

People are supported to continue their comforting routines, enjoy their favourite food, and spend time doing the hobbies and interests that they love most. From carers and nurses to activities co-ordinators and chefs, our teams are all committed to using a person-centred approach and spend time getting to know every individual in order to learn what they like and what is important to them. We know that family and friends are very important to the people we support. That's why we always warmly welcome visitors and encourage them to take part in activities and home events.

Joni was offered a position as a Relief Care Assistant with Hafod in St Isan residential care home, Llanishen. Within a couple of weeks she realised this was the career for her and loved working in St Isan with the mixed and unique cliental that they supported. Whilst working at St Isan and with the support of both Hafod and some fantastic and knowable colleagues Joni was able to complete QCF Levels 2 – 5.
