Visiting care and live-in care in Peterborough

Nestled in the county of Cambridgeshire lies Peterborough; a heritage city that offers nature, history and architecture alike. Home to a 900-year-old Norman cathedral, historic watermill and an abundance of countryside walks, Peterborough is also a city of residence to one of the leading home care providers in the UK – Helping Hands.

Whether you need full-time support around the clock from our live-in care team, regular visits throughout each day or the occasional visit once or twice per week, our home care team in Peterborough is equipped to provide the care you need on your terms. Every package is tailored to the customer and our care plans are flexible so that the support you receive can change as your needs do.

Nicholas Bennett

Meet Nicholas Bennett, our Branch Care Manager, Peterborough

It is my responsibility to oversee, supervise and ensure the safe delivery of the very best care at all times ensuring our customers remain safe and independent in their own homes. It is important to me and my team to ensure that we provide tailored packages to suit our customers needs and in turn develop a strong working relationship between our team and the customer. I was born in Whitefield, near Manchester, but moved away to complete my education at University and Post Graduate level. Eventually I relocated to Norfolk for a change of life and have lived in East Anglia since 2011. In 2022, I moved to Spalding where I live with my family. I am very much a "people person". Care is my second career, having worked in the legal sector for twenty-three years. In this time I experienced a whole cross section of society and people with needs. I always wanted to help and deliver the very best outcome for my customers. I felt that the law often forgot about people and became focused on profit. Now I get to genuinely make a difference to the quality of life of my customers through the brilliant carers that are part of the Peterborough team. In my spare time I like walking, travelling and gardening. All of these get me outside in the fresh air away from my desk and e-mails!

Visiting care in Peterborough tailored to your needs

Mary Lee founded Helping Hands as a way to give families the support they needed to feel safe and independent at home. Thirty years later, we are proud to have been providing that same person-centred service to thousands of families across England and Wales. As a company that was built on a foundation of family values, we understand how important it is for you or your loved one to feel safe and secure in your own home. That’s why Tessa and her team are here to provide you with a personalised care package that gives you the support you need in the place you know best – regardless of your condition.

Whether you are recovering from a life-changing illness or injury, you are living with a progressive condition or you simply need some extra help in going about your daily routine; with visiting care from our Peterborough team, you’ll have the support you need so that you can continue with your day-to-day life – making no compromises to your independence.

Live-in care for round-the-clock support

We understand that inviting someone new to live in your home can be daunting. That’s why Tessa and her team are here to offer guidance and support to alleviate any worries you may have. With live-in care from our Peterborough team, your carer will be there to provide round-the-clock support to ensure that you have everything you need – both physically and emotionally.

If you’re in need of more intensive support but feel that residential care isn’t the best option for you, live-in care is the perfect alternative to ensure that you can remain in the comfort of your own home, yet still receive round-the-clock support that enables you to feel safe and independent. What’s more, with no restrictions on visiting times and no set mealtimes or menus, you can continue to live your life entirely on your terms – just with a little help along the way.

Here at Helping Hands, we provide dedicated live-in care for anybody from the age of 18 all the way up to 100 and beyond. So whether you would like a live-in carer that supports you with retaining a full-time job, or you would like more intensive support in your elderly years to help you remain independent at home; Tessa and her team will work with you to provide a personalised, unintrusive live-in care package that is built by and around you.

Care Agency In Peterborough

Using a private care provider like Helping Hands, rather than a care agency, means you’ll have much more control over the level and type of care that you’ll receive. From your first phone call to our wonderful care team in Peterborough, you’ll be put at the centre of every decision and you’ll have a bespoke care plan that is fully tailored to your individual requirements and preferences. Being a private care provider also means that we employ our carers directly, whereas many care agencies will request that you take responsibility for your carer’s pay. We much prefer our way of operating, because it means no unnecessary work or hidden fees for our customers.

Domiciliary care from our Peterborough team

With domiciliary care from our Peterborough team, you will not only have the freedom to decide the details of your care, but you will be supported and encouraged to live your life entirely on your terms. So whether you enjoy an afternoon of crossword puzzles or a morning walk around Ferry Meadows Country Park, your carer will be there to give you the support you need to enable you to live the life you want to lead.

Our aim is to ensure that you retain your independence as much as possible, that’s why Tessa and her team will work closely with you to provide a personalised care plan that is focussed entirely around you and your needs.

Specialist dementia care from our award-winning team

With over 100 different variants of dementia, we understand that the time following a diagnosis can be unnerving for you and your surrounding family. Dementia can have a unique impact on everybody affected, and as one of the UK’s leading dementia care specialists, we are here to ensure that you have the information, guidance and support to help you and your loved ones through each step of your dementia journey.

From memory loss to a change in behaviour, experiencing the symptoms of dementia for the first time can be distressing for all involved. But with a compassionate team of expertly-trained carers, we are here to offer support with anything from continence care to communication.

Elderly care to support your independence

Whether you are living with a progressive condition or you are simply finding more difficulty in your everyday tasks than you used to, Tessa and her team are here to offer personalised elderly care to ensure that you or your loved ones are able to remain safe and independent at home.

You may have had a fall in your home and you don’t feel as confident on your own as you used to, or perhaps you are facing the inevitable signs of ageing and you would like more support in going about your usual routine. Whatever it is you need, our Peterborough team are here for you.

Respite care for short-term support

We understand that the need for respite care can arise at any given moment for any given reason. That’s why Tessa and her team can swiftly put a bespoke package of care in place that is ready for when you need it, for as long as you need it – and often within 24 hours of your initial enquiry.

Whether you need short-term care while your usual caregiver is away on holiday or following an unexpected illness or injury and you need some support on your road to recovery, respite care from our Peterborough team ensures that you have the support you need, when you need it.

Expert carers to support you in Peterborough

Helping Hands was founded by Mary Lee in 1989 to enable those who needed some extra support to remain in the comfort of their own homes. Thirty years later, we are proud to be providing the same level of person-centred care to thousands of families across England and Wales – and our values have never changed.

As a company that is big enough to support your every need yet still small enough to care, our expert carers are here to provide dedicated care that enables you to live independently at home. What’s more, each of our carers complete a comprehensive training course as part of their recruitment process that covers modules such as safeguarding, dementia care and moving and handling, so you can be sure that you’re in expert hands.

We employ each of our carers directly, so you don’t need to worry about any additional paperwork or background checks – we’ll cover it all for you. And as well as being fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), we are the only home care provider to be endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care.
