Live-in care and visiting care in Huddersfield
A large market and university town in West Yorkshire, Huddersfield has lots of hidden gems and secrets of its past. In 1895, the town invented the sport of rugby which is commemorated in the John Smiths Stadium, along with the historic win of all four Rugby League Cups by the Huddersfield Giants in 1914. But sporting accolades aside, Huddersfield is now a home for one of the leading home care providers in the UK – Helping Hands.
Along with her dedicated team of carers, Branch Manager Angela is here to provide person-centred support to families across Huddersfield, Holmfirth, Scammonden, Marsden, Meltham, Armitage Bridge, Flockton Moor, Mirfield and the surrounding areas.
Meet Angela McGuinness, our Branch Manager
"Hello, I’m Angela, and as a Branch Manager I am responsible for making sure that we only offer support which is of the highest standard. I also ensure that all staff run a safe, responsive, caring and effective service.
"I have 20 years of experience in the care industry. During this time, I have fulfilled the roles of a Care Assistant in both home care and a nursing home as well as worked as a Supervisor, Coordinator, Trainer and Registered Manager with the Care Quality Commission.
"From carrying out extensive research, I found that Helping Hands has an ethos that I agree with. I came into this line of work to provide excellent assistance to people within my community and I truly believe that Helping Hands will help me to do this."

Elderly care for your peace of mind
As we grow older, we can often start to experience difficulty with our day-to-day life.

But one thing that could make your life that little bit easier is a friendly carer from our Huddersfield team. With elderly care from Angela and her team, you’ll have someone there to support you both practically and emotionally – even if it’s for 30 minutes a week or more regular visits throughout the day.
It makes me feel incredible that I can really make a difference in somebody’s life. I particularly enjoy the relationships I form and the trust that I build with my customers.

Respite care for your short-term needs
If you’re looking into different care options and you’re wondering if a live-in carer is a suitable option for you, respite care is the perfect opportunity for you to test the waters and establish exactly what level of care you need.

Whatever the circumstance, respite care from Angela and her team ensures that you have a personalised package of care in place that is ready whenever you need it, for as long as you need it.
Respite care really is available for any situation.

Whatever it is, our Huddersfield will work around you to provide short-term care that is entirely focused around you.Request a callback Email us
