Live-in care and visiting home care in Hayes
With a history dating back to over a thousand years ago, the West London town of Hayes has a whole host of interesting facts attributed to it. These include being the UK headquarters for some of the biggest names in retail such as Heinz and Fujitsu and was also the former home of EMI Records. The town’s name is famously inscribed on the back of all of The Beatles’ records before EMI Records moved. As well as its famous links, Hayes is also home to a team of Helping Hands carers that offer support for a variety of different care needs across the area.
Branch Manager Lorna and her team of dedicated carers created personalised care packages to suit each individual. They are able to offer support across Eden Park, Hayes, Keyes, Southborough and the surrounding areas.
Meet Lorna, our Branch Manager
Lorna says: “I'm absolutely passionate about care and looking after the wellbeing of our customers. It’s my job to develop our team of discrete, friendly and professional carers to support customers with their needs.
“Our team here in Hayes offer a wide range of services from housekeeping, cooking, cleaning, personal care and accompanying customers to local GP or hospital appointments. Our carers are highly trained to give our customers the confidence, reassurance and compassion that they need to continue living independently in the comfort of their own homes."
Visiting home care across Hayes
Since our inception in 1989, we’ve been providing person-centred care for thousands of people across the country to enable them to stay in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. Lorna and her team are committed to continuing this expert service to enable people across Hayes to have a high level of care delivered to them while they’re at home.
Covering everything from personal care, toileting needs, mobility support, help with light housework duties and cooking, visiting care is designed to fit in with your daily routines and schedule so that you don’t have to choose between living at home or moving into residential care.
As well as supporting you with practical tasks and physical aid, our carers are also there to listen to you and be a friendly face that you can get to know and trust. So, if you struggle to get to the local shops and need someone to accompany you there, our carers will travel with you and even go for a cup of tea and slice of cake with you, so that you can have a chat about the local news, your family or even the weather.
We have received a consistent and excellent service. Having one main carer is wonderful and the hand-overs during the changes for the carers’ holidays has worked. Thank you very much.

Constant, round-the-clock support with live-in care
The great thing about live-in care is that you’re able to stay at home either by yourself, with your partner or your beloved pet, whilst still receiving the highest level of care available. So, if you have medication that you need support with throughout the day and night but don’t always want to rely on your partner to help you, a live-in carer will be there when you need them and provide unintrusive support to suit you.
What’s more, your carer is completely dedicated to you. They don’t have to leave to tend to other customers and they are not under strict timings like a in residential care setting. They’ll be there whenever you need them and will know everything there is to know about your care. So, if you like to get up at a specific time every day or have certain preferences when it comes to your meals and drinks, your live-in carer will quickly get used to your routines and have everything just how you like it.
Furthermore, we’ll work with you to find the very best carer suited to our interests and personality. That way, you can both get to know each other and enjoy some of your favourite past times together, which could be anything from jigsaw puzzles, tending to your garden or even going for a stroll around Barra Hall Park.
Domiciliary care that suits you
Traditionally known as visiting care, domiciliary care allows you to make the decisions about your own care, so that everything is tailored to you. It can be quite difficult to admit that you need a bit of extra help, so having the choice and autonomy about how your care is delivered and when means that you still retain your independence, but with a little support.
Covering a whole host of different conditions such as cancer, dementia, multiple sclerosis, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s and many more, domiciliary care can be provided for anyone over the age of 18 all the way up to 100 and beyond. So, if you’re in your younger years and want to keep up to date with the latest celebrity goings-on, we’ll match you to a carer that is slightly younger too so that you can feel comfortable with someone that’s closer to your age group.
Dementia care from our friendly and understanding team
Dementia covers a variety of different conditions that affect each person in their own individual way. From Pick’s disease to Alzheimer’s, there are over 100 different types of dementia that all generally affect behaviour, memory and cognition, which can often be confusing and difficult to manage for both the individual and their family. But dementia care from the Hayes team can put your mind at ease, knowing that you’re in safe and professional hands when it comes to living with your condition.
We understand how important it is to keep to a routine and maintain familiarity for someone with dementia. That’s why we’ll ensure that you have the same carers to support you, so that you can get used to a friendly face and build up a rapport with them.
Extra support with elderly care
Growing older needn’t be a difficult time, especially if you have the help and support of a carer from Lorna’s team. Friendly and professional, they’ll be there whenever you need care for your personal needs or for extra help around the house if you’re starting to struggle to get everything done to keep your home clean and tidy.
Elderly care is created entirely around you and can either be little or often, depending on your needs and requirements. So, if you need someone to do the vacuuming once a week or several calls a day to help with personal care and other jobs around the house, we’ll arrange for the right level of care that you need to stay happy and comfortable at home.
Respite care for your short-term needs
Care needs can arise at any given time, often with little or no warning at all. If this occurs for you or the person you provide care for, respite care could be a great solution for you at a time of crisis. Often on the same day as your enquiry, we can swiftly put a fully-trained carer in place to make sure you or your loved one has everything that they need.
If you want to take a short break to recharge your batteries after permanently looking after a relative but don’t want to leave them without support, respite care from the Hayes team will provide you with the reassurance that you need to know that your loved one is in safe hands. Whilst you’re away, we’ll make sure that we keep to the same routine that you currently have in place and leave everything just as you left it for when you and your loved one are reunited.
