Live-in care to suit your needs
You may be living with a complex condition that requires regular one-to-one support, or perhaps your day-to-day tasks are becoming more challenging than they once were. With our live-in care packages, we can be there to offer you round-the-clock support so that you can continue to live independently in the comfort of your own home.
We understand that welcoming a new person into your home can be a little daunting at first, but we’re here to support you in every step of the way in making decisions on your care. What’s more, our carers are carefully selected based on your personality, hobbies and interests; so whether you enjoy listening to Edward Elgar’s Enigma Variations, or seeing the classic cars at the Morgan Motor Company, we’ll work with you to find the best carer for you. With Helping Hands, you’ll receive so much more than a carer; you’ll gain a friend.
Whether you live on your own, as a couple or with your beloved pet, Petra and her team will provide you with unintrusive, round-the-clock support, enabling you to live each day on your terms in the comfort of your own home. Unlike residential care, you will have the freedom of choice over your daily routine with no restrictions on visiting or mealtimes; so you remain in control while still receiving the support you need.

We understand that, regardless of the circumstances, everybody has their own unique requirements. Petra and her team will tailor your care package around you and your needs, ensuring that you receive the care you need, when you need it.

Perhaps you need some help to complete your morning routine or you are finding it difficult to prepare your meals; nonetheless, Petra and her team are here to ensure that you maintain your independence as much as possible, without compensating on safety and support.

Respite care for your short-term needs
We understand that care needs can arise at any given time. Whether it’s a family emergency that your usual carer has to attend to or you’re due to be discharged from hospital and you need a helping hand to get back on your feet, our Malvern team offer respite care packages to provide you with the support you need, for as long as you need it.
We’ll ensure a seamless transition between carers, providing you with the high-quality care that you would expect from your own carer with no disruption to your usual routine. With as little as 24-hours’ notice, we can arrange the right support to ensure that you make no sacrifices to your usual care routine. Our respite care packages cover any of the following instances:
- Hospital discharge – If you need short-term care after time in hospital to rebuild your independence
- Emergencies – When your regular carer needs to tend to an emergency
- Short breaks – Giving your carer some time to rest and recuperate without any detriment to your ongoing care
- One-off occasions – When you want to join your family to enjoy a special event, such as a wedding or birthday celebration
