What a great impact Helping Hands has had for my mother. She is really pleased with the helpers who are ensuring that she is ready for the day. Knowing she has someone there has been a godsend.

Support that’s always available with live-in care
Feeling safe within your own home is paramount for us all, but when you’re living with a condition that causes you to be unsteady on your feet or disrupts your normal routine, a live-in carer may be the ideal source of comfort for you and your family. Designed to adhere to your preferences and needs, live-in care is created entirely around you to enable you to feel empowered and independent whilst living within the comforts of your own home.
So, if you need extra support throughout the day and night or are living with your partner and you both need a bit of extra help with the housework and getting in and out of bed, a live-in carer could be exactly what you need.
Fully supported by our team of clinical nurses, live-in carers can look after those with complex medical conditions such as stomas, catheters, tracheostomies and PEG feeding tubes, and many more. The great thing about this care option is that regardless of your condition, you don’t have to move into residential care where you would have to adhere to set meal and bed times – you really are free to chose what happens with your care.

Retain your independence with domiciliary care
Known traditionally as visiting care, domiciliary care puts you back in control of your care and allows you to make the best decisions for you. Whether you need someone to help you clean the dishes and stock up the fridge or if you need help to get to and from the toilet, we’ll do what’s best for you.
Even though you may have different physical care needs that you need support with, the team also make sure that your mental and emotional wellbeing is taken care of too. So, if a carer enables you to keep in touch with your circle of friends at the local coffee shop or helps you care for your beloved canine companion, that’s just as good a reason as any other for having a carer.
Dementia care that gives you extra peace of mind
With 30 years’ experience of supporting those living with dementia, we know just what it takes to support both the individual and their loved ones throughout the condition. Whether you’re diagnosed with Pick’s disease or Alzheimer’s, we’ll ensure that you have the appropriate level of care to suit your symptoms and difficulties so that you can live well and not ‘suffer from’ dementia.
We are extremely proud to be aligned with the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA), who promote the latest in dementia care and in sharing best practice within different care organisations across the country. This accolade has given us even more tools to be one of the leading home care providers for dementia in the UK, as well as ensuring all of our Macclesfield carers a fully trained in dementia care.
Elderly care to make you feel young again
Reaching a more senior age can be some of the best years of your life, but for others it may come with an arthritis diagnosis paired with a hearing or visual impairment, which can be very difficult to accept and cope with. The Macclesfield team will get you feeling young again with support little or often to suit you.
Elderly care doesn’t mean that our carers will do absolutely everything for you. Instead, they’ll enable you and assist you to live the life you want to lead – whether that’s gentle strolls around the Peak District at your pace or attending the latest production at Mads Little Theatre in the town centre.
Respite care for support as and when you need it
Caring for a loved one or friend can be one of the best jobs in the world, but it can also be extremely tiring both physically and mentally. This is when it becomes really important for both of you to have a break, which is where respite care can be extremely beneficial to you. We’ll ensure a seamless transition from your regular care routine to your respite carer, making sure that disruption is kept to a minimum.
There may be times when you want to attend an important family get-together or want to take a break with the rest of your family but aren’t quite sure how all of your care needs are going to be met. We can accompany you to a wedding, birthday party or even on holiday, so that you have everything you need without it impacting on the celebrations or your relaxation time.
Friendly and professional carers in Macclesfield
We are extremely proud to be recognised as the first and only home care provider to be awarded as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care for our rigorous training programme. Delivered to all of our visiting and live-in carers and led by our in-house team of expert trainers, each carer is required to complete modules in moving and handling, first aid, medication, dementia and personal care, amongst others. In doing so, we can ensure that the same top quality care is delivered across the UK by Helping Hands carers.
As with any care provider, we are also strictly monitored by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who makes sure that our service is effective, responsive and safe for all of our staff and customers.
I’ve been a visiting carer for nearly five years now, and really enjoy it! The flexibility helps me to stay at home with my children in the daytime and work evenings and weekends.
