Bespoke home care support in and around Bury
If you or someone close to you needs additional support with day-to-day activities, we have a dedicated team of carers working in and around the Bury area. Under the guidance of our manager Leanne, our visiting carers also support families living in other areas of Manchester, including in Bury, Bolton, Rochdale, Elton, Ainsworth, Unsworth, Heywood, Walmersley, Holcombe and Hawkshaw.
Whether you need help getting ready for the day, are coming out of hospital, or have a relative with advanced care needs, our Bury team is here to help.
Meet Leanne, our Branch Manager
A Registered Manager with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), Leanne first became inspired to work in care following a personal experience of her own. Now she supports other families in Bury in a similar situation.
“I have lived in Manchester all my life and have been at the branch since the very start of its journey,” Leanne explains. “I am very passionate about every one of our customers and I always ensure that I build that important relationship with them.
“Before Helping Hands, I worked for another care company, where I started off as a care assistant. Over a five-year period, I progressed to a senior carer role then on to a management role before joining Helping Hands.”
Care visits when you need them
Home care visits from Leanne and her team of carers start from as little as 30 minutes a week through to several hours during the day. And because everyone is unique and has their own specific requirements, we believe that that care you receive should be tailored to your needs and personality.
Our visiting carers provide a consistent service which puts your wellbeing first and can help with everyday tasks such as dressing and having a wash in the morning, through to helping you with your medication requirements or personal care needs.
And if you need help getting out to see friends and family, or even just down to the shops, we can help you keep in touch with the local community.
If you’re receiving direct payments for social care through social services, we are able to accept top-ups to these payments. Get in touch to find out more.
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.

Continuous live-in care for families in Bury
You might be worried that a loved one needs a higher level of support, or you yourself may need someone to support you at all times throughout the day. Live-in care can be an ideal solution for you and your family.
Because your carer will move in with you, they can give you the support you need whenever you need it, which means live-in care can be an alternative to moving into a residential or nursing home.
Our carers always put your comfort and safety first. Some of the areas they can support with are:
Personal care- helping you to get washed and ready for the day or with using the bathroom, making sure your dignity and privacy are respected.
Specialist care- using equipment such as hoists and slide-sheets, as well as helping to manage PEG feeding tubes, catheters, and stomas.
Socialising and maintaining lifestyle- helping you to visit loved ones or go to events together, and even sharing your hobbies and interests with you.
Your home is your special place, full of precious memories. That’s why our carers are always respectful of your routine and personal space, ensuring that you can have the support you need, where you feel most comfortable.
Short-term respite care from your local Bury team
Sometimes caring for a relative can leave you feeling tired, both physically and emotionally. Respite care allows you to have some time to yourself to recover while still being assured that your loved one still has the care they need.
You might also have to attend to a family emergency or illness, which could result in you having to spend time in another part of the country. Because situations can change suddenly, our carers can be in place at short-notice, taking away the worry of your relative’s care.
Our respite care can last from anywhere between one day or up to four weeks, and our friendly care team can arrange everything for you.
After caring for my one of my own relatives, I knew that helping people was what I wanted to do. Our local team is like my second family

Specialist care for dementia
There are around 850 000 people living with dementia in the UK alone. Because the condition affects everyone in different ways, the care we provide is always unique to the person we support.
Our specialist dementia carers place a high importance on maintaining consistency and independence. They are also carefully matched based on their experience and personality, which ensures you can start to feel comfortable with them from the moment you meet them.
One-to-one support enables your loved one to stay in the familiar surroundings of home, with all the help they need to live independently. Contact one of our specialists for more about our dementia care.Request a callback Email us
Support for clinical conditions
For those with progressive conditions such as motor neurone or cerebral palsy, finding the right care might seem overwhelming.
With tailored home care support from a specialist carer, you can still remain in the comfort of home, with all your friends and family around you, and have the right support for your needs.
Our carers can support with tracheostomy care, bowel management, and transfers. And should your needs ever change, one of our local team will adapt your care meet these changes.
Fully-trained, dedicated carers in Bury
All of our Bury carers go through a detailed training programme before they start working for us, and have the option of further training to help them continue developing their skills.
Because all of our carers are directly employed by us and trained from an accredited training programme, you can be assured you’re always having the best carers for you and your family.
With our services regulated by the CQC, your safety is always our highest priority and we do everything we can to promote positive emotional wellbeing.
