Meet Leanne, our Branch Manager
Leanne’s care experience began after her own grandmother suffered a stroke, and she helped her with her rehabilitation. She said, “I started supporting her during the first 12 months after she had suffered a stroke. Helping her to build her confidence back up, and regain some independence.”
Leanne soon realised that she had a passion for care, and wanted to pursue a career in it so that she could help other people in similar situations and put her friendly, empathetic nature to good use.
Bolton has a great team of carers who Leanne describes as ‘fantastic and helpful’ who are locally employed by the Bolton branch and overseen by Leanne and her management team. Leanne is also a registered manager with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and is on hand to support every single package in her area.
Visiting care to suit your schedule
The Bolton team can support you with as little as 30 minutes once a week, day sits and overnight support as well. Your visiting carer can support you around the house with things like personal care, medication and meal preparation.
Visiting care is not restricted to the confines of your home, but your personal carer can also assist you with trips out and about, social activities and attending appointments. Your team in Bolton will be able to explain all of the options and how we can prepare a care plan that is perfectly tailored to your needs.
It’s been two weeks since your carers began looking after my mum. Wow, what a difference there is. Even my father’s carers have commented on mum’s improvement. I can’t thank you enough.

Live-in care for total peace of mind
Live-in care provides a great alternative to residential care, meaning that your loved one can stay comfortably in their own home. If your needs are higher level or continual, your live-in carer will be there to support you round-the-clock, following a care plan that is entirely bespoke to you.
We will match a carer to you based on your requirements, but also from a personal point of view to ensure you have the best possible relationship with your live-in carer. All of our live-in care plans are fully managed, which means you will have ongoing support from your local manager throughout your entire package.
If you ever have a query or problem they can be contacted, and they will also provide any extra support that your live-in carer could need. We can provide live-in care for as little as 3 days if you are just looking for some temporary cover, or an ongoing package of care for as long as you need.
Respite care for temporary needs
If you are looking for short-term care we can provide respite live-in and visiting support in Bolton and the surrounding areas. You can have visiting care for as little as one day, or up to four weeks if your needs are not ongoing.
Respite care is a good solution when:
• You are going on holiday – If you are going on holiday and would like some support on your trip, or if you are leaving a loved one at home whilst you take a break.
• You have had an operation or illness – If you are poorly and needing some support for a short time as you recover a respite carer can help you until you are back to your usual self.
• You’ve been discharged from hospital – Getting back in to the swing of things following some time in hospital can be daunting, but a short term care plan can help you during your recovery period.
• You have an occasion to attend – Weddings, birthday parties or university graduations could be difficult for you to attend without some support, so we can provide a carer for as little as one day to help you manage your needs without missing out on wonderful events.
Leanne and the team in Bolton can discuss respite care with you so that you can get the exact care plan that you need.
I can’t fault my local team, they have been so friendly and supportive, and assisted me to help as many others as I can

Personalised care from dementia specialists
Every individual suffering with dementia will have specific needs or ways that they like to do things. For this reason we tailor every package to suit exactly what you are looking for. All of our carers have been through dementia-specific training, ensuring they have the right skillset to manage any difficulties that the condition might bring.
Maintaining continuity and preventing disruption is an essential part of dementia care, which will help ensure your loved one’s welfare isn’t compromised. We can support your loved one with everything from companionship and reminding them to take their medication through to high level personal care and mental stimulation.
Clinical care to suit your specific condition
Some more complex conditions such as motor neurone disease require very specific care. We have a team of clinical nurse specialists who are on hand to support with the set-up of more complex packages of care, and overseeing any training that is required.
Our Bolton team can support you with PEG feeding, bowel evacuations and tracheostomy care. No two of our care packages are the same. We understand that each person has different needs, so we tailor your care plan to suit your exact requirements.
Financial support from your local social services
The local authority in Bolton may be able to provide you with some financial support, but it is best that you contact them directly to see what you are entitled to. Generally, your eligibility for funding is means tested, so they will look in to your financial situation to determine this.
If you are able to receive some financial support, you can request to have the money paid in to your own account so that you have the choice to manage your own finances how you choose.
This is called ‘direct payment’, which is accepted by the Bolton branch of Helping Hands.
Depending on the amount you are granted, you may have to privately top up the remaining amount.
Trained carers in Bolton to suit your exact needs
Every single one of our carers goes through extensive training to ensure they have the perfect skillset to carry out great care. We don’t operate in the same way as agency in that all of our carers are employed directly by us, which means we can guarantee continuity of carer for you.
Our carers have top-up training at regular intervals, and can be trained in specific skills so that your exact needs can be met, no matter how complex they may seem. Each carer is thoroughly vetted and reference checked before they begin their career with us, ensuring your safety and peace of mind.
Our Bolton branch is overseen the Care Quality Commission (CQC), this is the regulatory body for care across England who make sure that our care standards are as high as they can possibly be.
