Meet Kirsty Prendiville , our Area Care Manager
Hi, I’m Kirsty. As a Area Care Manager, I am passionate about treating carers and customers as individuals. I strive at all times to provide my carers with as much support as possible, as they are at the centre of the exceptional services we provide.
After my father received palliative care due to throat cancer, my perspective on life changed. I decided that I no longer wanted to just work for a living; I wanted to make a difference. My father’s wish was to return home and not die in a hospice. Sadly, at the time, I didn’t realise that this was possible. Because of this experience, I am passionate about giving as many people as possible the opportunity to remain at home where they belong.
Home care visits in Aylesbury
Being able to support people in remaining safe and independent at home is at the forefront of what we do – and we’re proud to have been supporting thousands of families in doing just that for over 30 years.
You may need a little help in preparing your breakfast in the mornings, or perhaps you require more complex support that requires a carer to stay overnight for a couple of nights a week; whatever your requirements are, Chloe and her team can support with anything you need.
With each of our carers completing a comprehensive training programme with regular refresher courses, Chloe and her team are fully equipped to help you with any of your requirements, where that is administering your medication, preparing your meals, keeping the house tidy or more complex support for dementia, motor neurone disease or an acquired brain injury.
Everybody has their own individual ways of living their life and that shouldn’t have to change – regardless of your circumstances. Our Aylesbury team will work with you and your family to ensure that you remain in full control of your care, so that you can continue to live your life on your terms.
From catheter management to ensuring your pet has a full bowl of water, we can support you with any of the following care needs:
- Medication – Friendly reminders to take your medicines
- Personal care – Helping you to get washed, dressed and ready for the day
- Moving and handling – Supporting you with your mobility and getting you in and out of bed
- Household duties – Cooking, cleaning and laundry
- General support – Assisting you with your grocery shop, supporting you to the post office and helping you make a cup of tea
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.

Domiciliary support in Aylesbury
We understand how important it is for you to maintain control of your day-to-day life, which is why Chloe and her team will work with you to ensure that you can continue to live independently, just with a little help along the way.
Traditionally known as care at home, domiciliary care allows you to determine the frequency and the intensity of your care. Whether you need complex overnight support or a 30-minute drop-in to help prepare your dinner, Chloe and her team can support you with any of your everyday tasks including personal care and housekeeping, as well as more intensive support for clinical care such as PEG feeding and stoma management.
Specialised dementia support in Aylesbury
As one of the UK’s leading dementia specialists, we understand that living with a dementia diagnosis can bring a lot of uncertainties and anxieties. From memory loss to a change in behaviour, dementia can be a confusing time for both the individual and their family. But with 30 years’ industry experience under our belt, we’re here to provide guidance and support to you and your loved ones.
With each of our carers completing specialist dementia training, our Aylesbury team can give you and your family the support you need to remain comfortable and secure in the familiarities of your own home, while also providing guidance to your family on how you can continue to communicate and enjoy your time together.
Elderly care to support your independence
As we grow old, we can often become a little slower with our movements and sometimes forgetful – but that doesn’t necessarily mean our desire to remain independent changes with it. Maybe you are finding it a little more difficult to get showered and ready for the day, or perhaps you don’t feel as confident on your morning walk; regardless of what it is you need, Chloe and her team can provide a personalised care package that enables you to remain in the comfort of your own home with no compromise to your confidence or safety.
Respite care for your short-term needs
There’s no telling when the need for care will arise, and sometimes it occurs at such short notice that the possibility of finding an alternative seems very unlikely. But with Chloe and her team, we can provide personalised respite care packages to provide you with the support that you need, sometimes with as little as 24 hours’ notice.
Whether you’ve sustained an unexpected injury, you’re due to be discharged from hospital and don’t feel confident going home alone, or you want to go away with your family and would like a little extra support – we can swiftly put a package of care in place with minimal disruption to your usual routine.
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.
