Live-in care and visiting home care in Preston
Situated just above the River Ribble lies the bustling city of Preston, the birthplace of the UK’s motorway network. It became England’s 50th city in the 50th year of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign and has also since become home to one of the UK’s leading home care providers – Helping Hands.
Our aim is to ensure that you receive the compassionate, person-centred care that you need, whenever you need it, so that you can remain independent at home. Built on a foundation of family values, we’ll ensure that you receive the right care for you – whether it’s only for 30 minutes at a time or 24-hour support.
Covering areas such as Penwortham, Longton, Cottam, Leyland, Euxton, Heath Charnock, Ingol, Poulton Le Fylde, Fulwood, Broughton, Blackburn, Lytham St Annes, Ribble, Wrea Green, Wilpshire, Great Harwood and the surrounding areas, Branch Manager Lesley and her team are here to help.
Meet Lesley, our Branch Manager
Lesley has been working in care for over 20 years, with 12 of those years being in domiciliary care. Now, Lesley oversees a team of her own and loves being at the heart of care in the Preston community.
“I make sure that we run a safe, caring and organised service and all of our customers are looked after. I joined Helping Hands as I was looking for a new challenge, and a good friend had recommended the company and told me what a pleasure they were to work for.
“I am proud to say we offer a broad spectrum of support in the community. From assisting with social interaction, getting out and about and reconnecting with the community, nutritional and medical needs, as well as emotional support.”

Anne, a visiting care customer
I fell in love with caring at a young age and I enjoy seeing the difference I can make to people’s lives. I think it’s important to enable my customers do to all of the things they enjoy.

Live-in care for whenever you need assistance
We believe it is everybody’s right to remain safe and independent in their own home, and there are no exceptions. So, if the need arises where you need more intensive support but the idea of residential care isn’t for you, Lesley and her team will step in to provide bespoke, unintrusive live-in care to keep you safe and independent at home.
Whether you are a usual caregiver for your partner and you are looking for some extra support, or you live alone and would like some companionship while you go about your day-to-day life; with live-in care from our Preston team, you will have round-the-clock support that provides the right care for you with no compromise to your independence or routine.
The great thing about live-in care is that, unlike most residential settings, you have full control and flexibility over your care. There are no visiting restrictions, no strict mealtimes or menus and no daily schedules to abide by; the only person who chooses what you do with your day is you.
Domiciliary care support in Preston
The great thing about domiciliary care is that you decide the frequency and intensity of the care you receive. What’s more, you don’t have the added stresses of moving into residential care, because Lesley and her team are here to give you the support you need in the place you know best – your home.
You may be recovering from a life-changing injury, or you might just need some support in getting out and about in the local community. Whatever it is you need, our Preston team are here to help.
Specialist dementia care from our Preston team
As the leading dementia specialist in the UK, we understand how distressing it can be in the time following a dementia diagnosis for you or your loved one. With 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia, it’s so important that those who are living with and affected by the condition have access to the help they need, which is why our Preston team are here to offer expert advice, guidance and support to you and your family throughout your dementia journey.
Whether it’s memory loss, changes in behaviour or confusion, dementia has a number of different variants that can be unnerving for your surrounding family. But with expert carers that are trained to support you with understanding the condition and its symptoms, Lesley and her team are here to help you to live well with dementia.
Elderly care to support your independence
Getting older can sometimes mean our minds and our bodies become a little slower than they once were, but that’s not to say that you have to adapt your whole life to accommodate that. With elderly care from Lesley and her team, you’ll receive the support you need to enable you to remain independent at home.
You may live with your partner and find that you could both use some support in getting up and about, or perhaps you just don’t feel comfortable going for your morning walk on your own; whatever it is you need, our Preston team are here to provide a bespoke care package that gives you the support you need to help you to feel young again.
