A number of people live together in care homes, and professional staff are present 24 hours a day. There are many care homes in Gwynedd – some run by the Council and others by businesses or not for profit organisations.
Some people stay at a care home for a short period following illness or surgery or to give respite to their carer. Other people move there to live permanently because they cannot continue to live independently at home.

Contact details for residential or nursing homes in Gwynedd (and the whole of Wales) can be found on The Care and Social Services Inspectorate Wales (CSSIW) website. They are also responsible for reviewing homes.
