Care visits and live-in care in Oldham
Our local carers in Oldham help people in Oldham, Rochdale, Royton, Chadderton, Middleton, Shaw, Waterhead, Dobcross, Uppermill, 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.
Leanne, our manager for the Manchester region, has worked within the care sector for a considerable period of time, and the dedicated carers she works with can help with anything from light housework to helping you with your morning routine, through to advanced care duties such as hoisted transfers.
Meet Leanne, our Branch Manager
Having lived in the Manchester area her entire life, Leanne is passionate about helping people in her local community and making sure the care they receive is in keeping with their requirements.
“I am very passionate about every one of our customers and I always ensure that I build that important relationship with them,” Leanne says. “My carers are a great team, full of passion and empathy. I have personally interviewed the majority of them and I’ve been there right from the start of their Helping Hands journey.”
Little and often – care visits to suit your routine
Leanne and her 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 fits 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.
Home care visits 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.
If you’re receiving direct payments for social care through social services, we are able to accept top-ups to these payments. Get in touch to find out more.
It’s been two weeks since your carers began looking after my mum. Wow, what a difference there is. Even my father’s carers have commented on mum’s improvement. I can’t thank you enough.

Continuous live-in care for families in Oldham
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 doctor 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.
Short-term care if you have to take a break
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 still 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 even within 24 hours, so even in an emergency, we’re here to help you.
After caring for my one of my own relatives, I knew that helping people was what I wanted to do. Our local team is like my second family

One-to-one dementia 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 and Alzheimer’s affect 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 support.
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.Request a callback Email us
Complex support for progressive conditions
If you live with a condition such as cerebral palsy or Parkinson’s, the right support can help you to keep up the independent lifestyle you are accustomed to while still making sure you have support when you need it.
From helping you with mobility exercises to monitoring specialist equipment such as ventilators or PEG feeding tubes, your handpicked carer will also be a companion, helping you to carry on doing the things that matter most to you.
And if your needs start to change, we can alter your care plan to make sure you always have the right support.
Friendly, trained carers based in Oldham
Our OIdham 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.
