“Care is at the heart of everything we do” Holywell Care Group provides professional care services to clients throughout the northwest of England, primarily local authority commissioners and private clients seeking the highest standards of personal care. We offer tailored care solutions to people of all ages who experience a wide range of issues including specialist dementia care, learning disabilities, challenging behaviour and a variety of complex and special needs.
Holywell care services can be accessed via our residential care homes, Holywell West End, located in Morecambe and Holywell Bridgeway, located in Preston. Additionally, via Holywell Homecare, we provide a domicillary care service offering the highest standards of care and supported living services to people living in their own homes.
Our values are based on delivering the highest standards of care to everyone connected to our company. Holywell clients are always treated with respect and dignity. We never fail to remember that each of our clients is an individual person with pride, self-respect and feelings. We don’t subscribe to the shortsighted belief that one solution will suit everyone. This ethos extends to their families, friends, carers and support teams who are involved in every aspect of the care plans designed for those close to them.
We passionately believe in maintaining the highest standards of care within our own teams. Holywell selects only the very best people to deliver our care - in fact, one of our guiding principles when recruiting is to ask, “do you feel you were born to care for people?”. We then train, motivate and empower our team members to be the best carers they can be, not just at the start of their employment with us, but for the entire journey. This approach extends to the newest part of the group, Holywell Recruitment, which has been established to recruit staff, not only for the Holywell Care Group, but to supply carefully selected professionals to the wider social and healthcare sector. Holywell Recruitment is proud of our deep understanding of the needs of the national care sector and our ability to supply it with motivated, skilled care professionals.

We want to make sure that all matters, however slight, which concern Holywell’s services are brought to the attention of the staff. During regular assessments and reviews with you, our client, we will remind you about Holywell’s complaints policy and procedure. The staff of Holywell Care Group will always encourage you to speak freely about your concerns, fears and views. If you require an advocate, we will arrange for one to support you to make your views clear.
