Meet Kelly, our Area Care Manager
"Hello, I’m Kelly Fox. I am responsible for ensuring that our new branches are opened with fantastic people who are trained to the highest standard, to ensure that our customers always receive nothing less than excellent service.
"When I joined the company myself, I could see just how much everyone cares, and how so many people currently working here had themselves cared for a friend or relative or had experienced first-hand the service that Helping Hands offers to enable customers to stay in their own homes."
Little and often – home care visits in Oldham to suit your routine
The Oldham team of carers 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.
Excellent service. All staff at all levels have been very friendly and helpful. Communication is great. The carers have got a good rapport with our parents and trust them completely.

Continuous live-in care for you
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:
- Personal care: helping you to use the shower, toilet or commode, and applying skin cream or ointments, all while respecting your privacy.
- Monitoring and using equipment: carrying out hoisted transfers and managing equipment such as PEG feeding, ventilators, and stomas or catheters.
- Maintaining a lifestyle or routine you’re familiar with: accompanying you on social outings or to doctors appointments, and taking you to the shops.
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.

Domiciliary care that suits you
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.
One-to-one dementia care support
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.
Elderly care to make you feel young again
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.
Short-term respite care
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.
Friendly, trained carers based in Oldham
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.
