Visiting and live-in care across Cheadle
Located in the suburbs of Stockport, the sleepy village of Cheadle is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the UK’s third largest city. Many have called Cheadle their home – from the Romans in the 7th century, sportswear company Umbro and now Helping Hands Home Care. Offering person-centred care from 30 minutes a week all the way up to full-time live-in care, the friendly team of carers will be there for you when you need them.
The branch covers care across Cheadle, Cheadle Hume, Gately, Heald Green and the surrounding areas.

Excellent service. All staff at all levels have been very friendly and helpful. Communication is great. The carers have got a good rapport with our parents and trust them completely.

Live-in care in Cheadle
If you’re concerned that you might need more than just several visits throughout the day or round-the-clock support day and night, live-in care could give you the reassurance you’re looking for. Living with you in your home, a live-in carer will be there to care for you whenever you need them – whether that’s help getting in and out of bed, doing the cleaning and laundry or checking in on you throughout the night.
And we’ll not only match your carer to your health requirements, but also make sure that their personality suits yours so that you’re able to share things in common and really build a rapport with your them. That way, they’ll be more than just a carer; they’ll become a friend or extended member of the family.
Live-in care may also be suitable if you have a complex health condition that requires constant nursing care assistance, such after a stroke, a tracheostomy or stoma. With the support of our experienced nursing team, we can arrange for a bespoke support plan to be put in place that takes every single one of your needs into account and ensures that they are met to the best of our ability. That way, you can get the care that you need in the place that you love – your home.
Extra support with domiciliary care
Also known as visiting care, domiciliary care allows you to have the freedom and autonomy that you desire but also gives you the help that you might need along the way. This type of flexible care is also great if your family lives a fair distance away and is unable to pop in all of the time to check that you’re okay. Once we’ve established exactly what it is you need support with – shopping, cleaning, attending appointments or personal care – we’ll put a plan in place to make sure that you have the right level of support for you.
We understand that things may change from time to time if you have an illness, or more permanently if your health condition changes. That’s why we can adapt and change your support plan to fit in with you, so you never have to worry about not getting the right care that you need. What’s more, we’ll deliver care with a smile.
Specialist dementia care in Cheadle
As dementia home care specialists, we understand the complexities and difficulties that comes with the condition. From trouble remembering words and dates, to difficulties maintaining routines and coping with emotions, we’ll be there to support both you and your family with the things that matter to you.
With dementia care, we focus very much on the individual and what they want from their care. So, if you enjoy spending the afternoon completing jigsaws or love getting some fresh air in Alexandra Park but you also need someone to accompany you that you can rely on, we’ll make sure that we fit this into your care routine, allowing you to maintain your independence and wellbeing.
Elderly care to maintain your freedom
Maintaining independence when you reach your senior years is extremely important, and that’s exactly what we aim to do with elderly care from the Cheadle team. Not only will we help out with gentle medication reminders, making your meals or accompanying you to the shops, but we’ll take the time to get to know you and talk about the things that interest you – whether that’s your favourite TV programme or reminiscing about childhood memories.
We’ll even be there for you if you struggle to get out and about and just want someone to talk to and share some lunch with. No one should ever have to feel lonely in their own home, and our friendly carers will certainly make sure that that doesn’t happen.
Respite care in Cheadle
If you rely upon a close friend or family member to care for you but they need to take a break or tend to an emergency, respite care could be just the thing to keep all of your health and welfare needs maintained without disrupting your normal routines.
For planned breaks, we’ll ensure that a carer and manager meets with both of you to discuss your care requirements and preferences, so that everything stays just as you like it while your regular caregiver is away. In emergencies when meeting prior to care commencing isn’t possible, we can usually arrange care within 24 hours of your first enquiry with us, giving everyone involved reassurance that you aren’t left without care and support.
Fully trained live-in carers who really do care
Here at Helping Hands, we pride ourselves on our award-winning training programme that’s delivered to all of our carers. Covering modules such as manual handling, personal care, dementia, first aid and safeguarding, we know what it takes to provide the skills and expertise that our carers need when they’re out doing what they do best. But above all, we only select those who are truly compassionate and empathetic people, willing to go the extra mile to help those that are vulnerable or in need.
All personal care services are provided by our Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered office Helping Hands West Manchester. This ensures that the care they are delivering is effective, responsive and safe, giving you piece of mind that you really are in the best hands.
