Our home carers in Oldham consists of dedicated carers, directly employed and locally managed by Helping Hands. Every private carer is handpicked for their natural interpersonal skills and undergoes rigorous training, along with Care Quality Commission (CQC) monitoring & regulation to ensure they are as diligent as possible in preparing to care for your loved one.
Our local carers in Oldham help people in Dobcross, Rochdale, Royton, Chadderton, Middleton, Shaw, Waterhead, Dobcross, Uppermill, Oldham, Greenfield, and Bardsley, with different care requirements and conditions to retain an independent lifestyle without the disruption and upheaval of having to move into residential care.
Famed for its cotton exports in previous centuries, as well as the birthplace of famous faces such as Brian Cox, Nick Grimshaw and David Platt, Oldham is situated in Greater Manchester and also home to a branch of the nation’s leading home care provider – Helping Hands.

Family-run and experts in home care since 1989
Fully flexible care packages as your needs change
Flexible care provided in your own home with a fully qualified carer. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes up to several hourly or overnight calls throughout the week.
One-to-one support from a fully qualified care that lives with you. Full-time support so you can stay at home where you feel most comfortable.
The Oldham home care team can provide one-to-one support in many different ways. What they always focus on is your wellbeing and your comfort, making sure that you can keep up with your routines.
We believe that your care should be unique to you and fit in with who you are as a person. Your carer will visit at the times that fit in with your routine and help you with the tasks you might want a bit of extra help to do independently.
Visiting care start from 30 minutes a week up to several hours daily – so even if you just need a small amount of help, we can find the solution for your requirements.
Live-in care enables you to have one-to-one care all throughout the day and during the night. Unlike visiting care, your carer will move into your home permanently, so even if you need a high level of care, you be assured someone will be there to help you.
Your handpicked live-in carer can support you with:
Our carers always respect your personal space and treat your home with the same care you’d expect to have from them. Even if you need them to give the surfaces a polish or tend to the laundry, you can always enjoy your home comforts and get the support you need.

Also known as care at home, domiciliary care enables you to take back control of your life with a little assistance from one of the friendly cares from the Oldham team. Designed to seamlessly fit into your schedule, we’ll create a package of care that works for you and enables you, rather than takes over and does everything for you.
So, if you miss catching up with friends in Alexandra Park, we’ll accompany you and make sure you get there safely so that you can enjoy your time with them without having to worry about any of your care needs or how you’re going to get there.
Each of our Oldham carers undertake specialist training on different types of dementia and how the symptoms might affect your loved one.
Because dementia affects each person differently, we always work with you and other professionals in your loved one’s care to fully understand your needs and how we can provide you with the right dementia care.
Whether your loved one just needs a few prompts to take medication or has a higher stage of dementia, we can provide complete peace of mind that your friend or relative is safe and supported, while maintaining their independence.
Aging is inevitable, but struggling with your day-to-day needs isn’t, and that’s exactly what our friendly carers in Oldham can make sure that you don’t have to worry about. Whether you need support with personal care, mobility, the laundry or watering your plants, the team will meet with you to arrange the best times to pop in and give you an extra hand with whatever you need.
If your care needs change or you develop a condition that you need extra support with, we can amend your elderly care plan and put more assistance in place – either with an increase in care calls or a permanent live-in carer. Our aim is to ensure you remain in the home you know and love for as long as possible.
Though being the main carer for a loved one is a wonderful thing to do, it can be challenging both physically and emotionally. Sometimes, you just need a short break to recharge your batteries.
Respite care, arranged for a few days or a couple of weeks, allows you to take some time to yourself and ensure your friend or relative still has the care they need. Or you yourself might become ill and so having a carer might be an option to support both of you.
Because circumstances can change without warning, we can often arrange respite care to start at short-notice – sometimes within 24 hours – so even in an emergency, we’re here to help you.
Our Oldham carers are all passionate about what they do. To make sure they’re the right fit for your family, each one goes through a detailed background check and a mandatory training programme, regardless of their previous experience.
The training doesn’t stop there though; we offer our carers in Oldham and other areas of the country regular refresher training and the chance to build specific or specialist skills.
Our training programme is endorsed by Skills for Care, the strategic body for the adult social care workforce in England, which means you can be sure we have the best carers to help your family.
All personal care services are provided by our Care Quality Commission (CQC) registered office Helping Hands West Manchester.
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Oldham to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
