Live-in and visiting care in Droitwich
A stone’s throw away from the beautiful city of Worcester and short distance from the bustling city of Birmingham, Droitwich is a charming town that is probably most famous for its natural brine springs that were exploited as far back as the Roman times. This quiet yet pretty place now has popular markets, pubs and lots of green open space to enjoy, as well as catering for anyone that requires extra support from the local team of Helping Hands carers.
Branch Manager Sarah ensures that her passionate team are equipped to provide care in Droitwich, Hadzor, Hanbury, Oddingley, Wychbold and the surrounding areas.
Meet Sarah, our Branch Manager
“Hello! I’m Sarah, the Helping Hands Branch Manager in Droitwich. I am responsible for ensuring our customers receive the best possible care so that they can remain as independent as possible in their own homes. I ensure that our team of carers have the best possible support and guidance that they need to do their job to the best of their ability. It's really important to me to encourage my team to develop in their roles. I want to help them achieve their goals both personally and professionally.”
Visiting home care in and around Droitwich
Since 1989, we have been dedicated to providing compassionate, person-centred support to individuals up and down the country, ensuring that they are safe and comfortable within their own homes.
Irrespective of whether you’re looking for weekly visits to help with changing the beds or regular calls throughout the day to help with your personal care or preparing meals, our Droitwich team are here to help. And with a team that that have a wealth of knowledge and experience between them, we’re sure to find a carer that suits your needs.
Everyone is different, and even if you’re living with the same condition as someone else, it doesn’t mean that you’ll experience the same symptoms. So, if you have dementia and are capable of looking after your physical health but struggle with your mental health, we’ll create a visiting care plan that works around this and supports you in a way that’s unique to your situation.
My father has had three carers from Helping Hands. I could not have asked for better. They have all been different but all have been fantastic, I would certainly tell people how good the service has been.

Live-in care for round-the-clock support
If you find yourself needing extra support throughout the day and night, live-in care could be a more suitable option for you if your care needs have recently increased or you’re still struggling after having a visiting carer call in several times a day.
Whether you’re a young person with an acquired brain injury or a couple in the ‘winter’ of their life who need regular care and attention, a live-in carer will live with you in your home and be on hand whenever you need them.
What’s more, the Droitwich team will work in collaboration with you to find a carer that matches your personality and interests. So, if you enjoy taking in the wonders of Hanbury Hall or love going for a stroll along the canal and spotting wild birds, we’ll make sure that we find the right carer that can enjoy this with you.
Domiciliary care to support your independence
As specialists in domiciliary care, we understand the importance of retaining control of your own care and choosing the type of support that you receive on your terms, which is why Sarah and her team will provide the right care package for you to maintain your daily routine.
With flexible care arrangements and minimal disruption to your existing schedule, the Droitwich team will make sure you have everything you need to be independent in your own home – whether that’s an extra pair of hands to help with your laundry or help with watering your plants and herb garden.
Dementia care for total reassurance
Dementia is an umbrella term that covers over 100 different conditions and diseases such as vascular dementia, Pick’s disease and Alzheimer’s – which tend to be the most commonly diagnosed types of dementia. Whatever your diagnosis, we’re here to help you feel settled and safe whilst ensuring you have the best quality of life in the comfort of your own home.
It can be quite an unsettling and worrying time after a dementia diagnosis, but with expert dementia care from Sarah and her dedicated carers, they’ll be able to alleviate any anxieties and guide you through every step of your dementia journey.
Elderly care tailored to your preferences
You may have recently noticed that your parents aren’t as nimble as they used to be, or you could be struggling to get out of bed and dressed in the morning without support from your family. Instead of considering a nursing home, elderly care from Sarah’s team could be the perfect solution for you or your loved ones.
With care that is unintrusive and considerate whilst always maintaining respect and dignity, we’ll make sure that you only receive support with the things that you want help with instead of taking over and doing everything for you.
Respite care for emergencies or short-term needs
We understand that care needs can arise at any time, whether it’s an unexpected injury, after a hospital admission or if your regular caregiver needs to attend to a family emergency. Regardless of the situation, we can swiftly put a package of care in place in as little as 24 hours after your first enquiry. That way, you can rest assured that everything is taken care of and you’re not left without support at a time of need.
Respite care can also be a suitable option if you want to attend a special occasion or take a holiday alone or with your family. To make sure that your routine isn’t altered, your carer can meet with you and discuss everything from what time you like to get up in the morning to how you like your breakfast, whilst making sure that you enjoy your celebration or well-earned break.
Friendly, dedicated carers in Droitwich
Choosing care can often be quite a daunting experience. With a variety of options available, it can be difficult to know where to start and how your specific needs are going to be met. That’s why we ensure that all of our carers go through a rigorous training programme that covers moving and handling, dementia, medication, personal care and first aid, so that you’ll have peace of mind that you or your loved one has the very best care.
Not only are we the only care provider to have their training programme endorsed as a Centre of Excellence, we are also regularly inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who make sure our staff and services are safe, responsive and effective.
It’s really important to get to know the person you’re caring for – what they like and what their interests are – and help them live the life that they want to.
