Meet Louise, our Branch Manager
“Hello! I’m Louise, the Manager at Helping Hands’ Evesham & Cotswolds branch. In my role, I meet with new and existing customers and manage a wonderful team of carers, supporting them with supervisions and appraisals to ensure that as a team we are constantly improving our skills. I draw upon my professional experience, local knowledge and understanding of personalised care to ensure that our customers receive continuity of service and friendly, compassionate care."
Visiting home care across Evesham & the Cotswolds
It can often be quite a difficult decision when deciding to arrange for a carer to come and help you at home, but with our friendly team in Evesham & the Cotswolds it needn’t be difficult at all. We’ll meet with you at a time and place that suits you and take you through the different care options available to you. And because we specialise in person-centred care, everything will be centred around you and your requirements.
So, whether you’re living with multiple sclerosis and need support with personal care, getting dressed and preparing meals, or if you’re struggling with your mobility when you’re out and about and need someone to help with the shopping – we can put a supportive package of care in place that enables you to live the life you want to lead.
And if your care needs change, we can adapt to this too. We never have a one-size-fits-all approach, as we know how quickly things can sometimes change when it comes to living with a progressive condition or injury. However, our experienced team will be able to provide plenty of reassurance and swiftly change your visiting care hours or type of care that you receive if necessary.
I would like to thank you for the high quality of care and support you have provided. Julie and all mother’s carers have treated her with dignity and respect without exception and this is truly appreciated.

One-to-one support from live-in care
Designed to be a more intensive form of support, live-in care is ideal if you have more complex needs or are perhaps living as a couple but you both need an extra pair of hands around the house and with some personal care.
Living with you in your home, a live-in carer enables you to have a constant source of reassurance throughout the day and night, so you know that someone is always there whenever you need them. So, if you need to take medication at regular intervals during the day and night or if you struggle getting in and out of bed and mobilising around your house, a live-in carer could be what enables you to stay in the comfort of your own home whilst still receiving the quality care that you need.
We don’t just send anyone to come and live and care for you. We’ll work with you to find a suitable carer, and once you’re happy that the right carer has been selected that matches your personality and interests, we’ll arrange for them to meet with you before they move in. It’s really important to us that a carer doesn’t just have experience in your practical care needs but is someone that you can get along with and feel comfortable with.
Domiciliary care that let’s you stay in control
Traditionally known as care at home or visiting care, domiciliary care allows you to pick and choose when and where you receive support without any detriment to your existing routines. Carers can support you with taking medication, getting washed and dressed, toileting needs and using mobility aids, all the way up to taking you to medical appointments, doing light housework or even taking you out for the afternoon to The Valley, Evesham for a spot of shopping and a slice of cake.
There really are many options for you to choose from, but most importantly, we’re here to relieve any stress or anxiety that you may get when worrying about difficulties that you may be having. We’ll do our best to get support to you as soon as we can so that you have total peace of mind when it comes to your physical and mental wellbeing.
Empathetic dementia care from our experts
When someone receives a diagnosis of dementia, it can be an extremely unsettling time for both the individual and their family. Louise’s team are experienced in working with families affected by the condition and know how to settle any anxieties, answer questions and most importantly, provide the very best in dementia care.
If your memory starts to decline, you become more confused or you’re unable to communicate as easily as you used to, we’ll put extra measures in place to allow you to feel as safe and comfortable as possible whilst remaining in the place that you know and love; your home.
Extra assistance with elderly care
Getting older shouldn’t mean that you have to completely change your life and become sedentary. With a little support from the Louise’s team of carers, you can make small amendments to your life but without having to forgo your favourite activities.
If you’re a keen boules player but struggle with your joints, we’ll help you to carry out regular exercises at home to keep you nimble and active. Or if you love spending time in your garden but are unable to bend down to plant new bulbs or dead-head the flowers, we’ll reach the plants that are lower down and encourage you to use plant pots that are in your reach instead.
Respite care when you need last-minute support
Emergencies can arise at any given time, often without any warning or time to prepare. If you find yourself in the position where you’re without support for your care needs that you’re unable to carry out yourself, we can swiftly arrange for respite care to begin, often in as little as 24 hours from when you first enquire.
We also provide respite care if you need help after an illness or injury that you were in hospital for, or even if you and your family want to take a holiday together without worrying about your care needs. With some of the best carers in the industry as part of the Helping Hands family, we’ll make sure that you have a friendly and experienced carer ready tend to all of your care needs. They’ll even accompany you and your family on holiday so that you can all enjoy a real break.
Fully-trained carers in Evesham & the Cotswolds
Since 1989, we have been committed to providing the highest standard of care to our customers throughout England and Wales, whilst also ensuring that our staff receive the very best training and support. By being closely monitored by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), both our staff and customers can rest assured that we are providing a safe, responsive and effective service that is consistently inspected and that adheres to industry standards.
All of our carers are required to undertake an in-house training programme that covers manual handling, first aid, dementia, medication and personal care so that they are equipped to support our customers in the best way possible. We are extremely proud to be the first and only home care provider to be recognised as a Centre of Excellence for our training programme. Not only are carers required to go through this training when they begin their journey with us, but they are all required to have regular refresher sessions to make sure they are following the latest guidelines and sharing good practice.
I have so many lovely memories of such lovely customers. One was an amazing lady who is still going strong at 103. All of her stories about her life were inspiring to hear.
