Live-in care and visiting home care in Aylesbury
Based in the heart of the Aylesbury, our carers support families across the local community, including in Chesham, Amersham, Hemel Hempstead and the surrounding areas. Home care visits start from just half an hour a week through to several visits every day, at a time to meet your needs.
Guided by a team of experts, our carers will support you or your loved one in a way that promotes independence and comfort. From making sure you have a warm meal and a tidy house, through to carrying out personal care and helping you to get around your home safely, our person-centred approach puts your needs first every time.
And if you need regular ongoing support, live-in care support is also available across the whole of Buckinghamshire.
Meet Adam, our Branch Manager
Heading up the Aylesbury branch is Adam Roberts, a Registered Manager with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). Arriving at Helping Hands from a teaching background, Adam has helped younger children with learning difficulties to achieve their goals and finds it incredibly rewarding when he achieves a similar outcome with his visiting care customers.
Adam says, “I chose Helping Hands when I first read about how they are still family run and uphold such fantastic standards and values. The care industry stood out to me as something I would want to be involved in when I realised just how important, rewarding and fulfilling it can be.
“Every time I help in assisting somebody to come home from hospital by setting up a new care package for them is a really special moment for me,” he adds. “To see someone’s eyes light up when they know they can come home, where they belong, really makes my job worth doing.”

What a great impact Helping Hands has had for my mother. She is really pleased with the helpers who are ensuring that she is ready for the day. Knowing she has someone there has been a godsend.

Live-in care for ongoing care needs
Over time, you might find you need more ongoing care and support. With your own dedicated carer, permanently living in your home alongside you, the right support is on hand when you need it.
All of our carers are selected based on their personalities and any shared interests you have with them, as well as their experience. This ensures you have someone you feel comfortable with and who will give you the care you require.
Available 24/7, our live-in care service helps you with the day-to-day tasks you might be struggling with. Your carer will also carry out other duties such as carrying out hoisted transfers, taking you to medical appointments, or preparing your meals. They can even help you take care of your pet if you have one.
Welcoming someone into your home is a significant step and we fully appreciate how hard it can be to build trust in the early stages. Your local manager will be on hand to oversee everything and to implement any changes that come up, giving you peace of mind and the reassurance that someone will be there to help at all times. If you need them, they’ll only ever be a phone call or an email away.
Nurse-led clinical support and dementia care
Being diagnosed with a complex condition or coming to terms with a brain or spinal injury presents various challenges. But you don’t need to leave your home to get the right care. Our carers work alongside our team of clinical nurse specialists to advance their skills, with many of them taking additional training on various areas of complex care.
We also have a team of dementia specialists on hand to advise on how to support someone with the condition at home, the place that is most familiar and comfortable to them. Moving into a residential home can be a distressing experience at the best of times. With a fully-trained carer supporting your loved one, you can be reassured that they’ll have the right care whenever they need it.
Emergency care and respite care
Situations can change suddenly. And it can be incredibly distressing trying to arrange care in difficult situations such as after a fall or a family emergency. We can arrange for care to start quickly, sometimes within a matter of hours.
Because all of our carers are directly employed by us, we can also provide cover for when your current carer is ill or has to attend to their own emergency. As a result, your loved one will always have the support they need, allowing you to handle the situation reassured that they are well-looked after.
Carer training in Aylesbury
Each of our carers in Aylesbury goes through a thorough training programme at our branch in Prebandal Court, regardless of their previous care experience.
Covering topics such as personal care and how to assist someone with showering and other daily tasks, all training is carried out by an expert team. We also carry out rigorous background checks before accepting a carer – each one is chosen for their compassionate attitude and dedication.
We’re a CQC-regulated provider of home care, which means that we only put forward the best carers who will deliver the highest standard of care for your family member or friend.
I’ve been a visiting carer for nearly five years now, and really enjoy it! The flexibility helps me to stay at home with my children in the daytime and work evenings and weekends.
