Meet Marietjie Jones, our Branch Manager
"Hello! I’m Marietjie, the manager at Helping Hands' Edgbaston branch. My role is to make sure we get the right fit of carer, deliver continuity and quality care and complete a bespoke care plan. We can pop in from half an hour to help you start each day or take a customer out for the whole day. Our aim is to be flexible with people’s needs as they can change on a daily basis. Our carer training is impeccable, with ongoing training and support from myself and our team of clinical nurses."
Visiting home care in Edgbaston to suit your schedule
Here at Helping Hands, we tailor each and every one of our care packages to ensure that you receive the exact level of care you need. Whether you are looking for a weekly visit, three calls a day or overnight stays, Marietjie and her team will work with you to ensure that all of your needs are catered for.
With a flexible package of visiting care, you have the freedom to choose the frequency and intensity of your support; so the control of your care is exactly where it should be – in your hands. Whether you need assistance with your personal care, mobility needs, medication administration or household chores, our Edgbaston team are here for you.
With dedicated visiting care from our team, we don’t just take care of your practical needs; your emotional wellbeing is important to us too. So if cricket is your passion and you want someone to go and watch the Ashes with, we’ll be right there with you to ensure that you can continue to do the things you love – just with a little help along the way.
I’m amazed, David (my husband) has not been so settled in well over three years and it’s all down to the continuity of care that Helping Hands have provided for us.

Live-in care for total peace of mind
Live-in care is the ideal alternative to residential care if you need intensive support but don’t want to leave the comfort of the home that you know and love. With round-the-clock support available at your fingertips, you will be enabled to feel safe and secure in the comfort of your own home, but with total peace of mind that you will always have someone to call on.
What’s more, we’ll work closely with you to find a carer that is compatible with your personality and interests, so you will have more than just practical care; you’ll have someone who can become more like part of your family.
Our live-in carers can help with anything from personal care, meal preparation and companionship. And with the support of our dedicated team of clinical nurses, Marietjie and her team have the knowledge and experience to support more complex and clinical requirements, from PEG feeding and tracheostomy care to stroke aftercare and palliative support.
Domiciliary care to suit you and your routines
Care needs can arise at any time; you may have acquired an unexpected illness or injury that has required you to adapt to a new way of life, or perhaps you have received a diagnosis for a progressive condition and you are concerned that you need to start looking at care options for when your symptoms progress. Whatever your circumstance, domiciliary care from Marietjie and her team put your needs and requirements first so that you are able to live safely and independently in the home you know and love.
Whether you need someone to pop in with a friendly reminder to take your medication, a friendly face to enjoy a walk around the Botanical Gardens with or more complex support for a clinical condition, our Edgbaston team are here for you.
I enjoy the variety each day that care work brings. Each customer is different and I enjoy getting to know them. It’s also a lovely feeling, knowing that people appreciate what you do.

Specialised dementia support for you and your loved ones
The time following a dementia diagnosis can be unnerving for you and your loved ones; but despite the upset and the confusion you may be feeling, it’s important to remember that you are not alone. If you need guidance, information or advice on how to come to terms with your diagnosis, Marietjie and her team have specialist support available for you and your loved ones throughout each step of your dementia journey.
As the leading dementia home care specialists in the UK, we understand that the symptoms of dementia often come hand-in-hand with a lot of confusion and uncertainty for you and your loved ones. That’s why we’re here to offer sensitive and person-centred care that supports you to feel safe and confident in your home. What’s more, we’ll work closely with your family to ensure that they can gain an understanding of the symptoms and behaviours that are linked with your condition, so that you can continue to communicate and enjoy your time together as a family.
Elderly care to bring you peace of mind
Aging is inevitable, but as we reach our more senior years, it’s not uncommon to feel the need for a bit of extra help in order to feel safe and comfortable at home. As a company that was built on a foundation of family values, we understand how precious your home is to you – especially if it’s the place where you raised your children and you now hear the pitter-patter of your grandchildren in the hallway. That’s why Marietjie and her team will work with you to provide a bespoke package of care that gives you the level of support you need without having to leave the home you love.
Respite care for as long as you need it
We understand that care needs can arise and change at any given moment – often with such little notice that finding an alternative seems almost too difficult to achieve. But worry not, with respite care from our Edgbaston team, we’ll swiftly put a package of care in place that focuses on your needs and routines – often with as little as 24 hours’ notice.
It may be that you are due to return home from a spell in hospital and you would like some extra support with getting back on your feet, or perhaps there is a concert you would like to attend at the Symphony Hall but you don’t feel comfortable going alone. Whatever it is you need, Marietjie and her team will provide a bespoke package of care that is ready to start when you need it, for as long as you need it.Request a callback Email us
