Meet Leanne, our Branch Manager
Leanne had personal experience in caring for a relative before she decided to pursue a career in the care industry. Her grandmother suffered a stroke, and it was after this that she helped support her grandmother with her rehabilitation and regaining independence.
A registered manager with Care Quality Commission (CQC), Leanne has been with the Rochdale branch since its early days in 2016. She has an enthusiastic and professional team of carers who she describes as ‘fantastic and extremely helpful.’
Leanne works closely not only with her team of carers, but she plays an active role in your local community too. Working alongside doctors, pharmacies and the NHS to ensure we provide as smooth a service as possible.
Leanne said, “Care has affected me personally, and is therefore something that I am passionate about. I decided to follow a career in care, allowing me to bring my passion and empathy to those who need it most in my local community.”
Visiting care to suit your exact needs
The Rochdale team can provide you with 30 minutes of support, right through to entire days. If you need overnight care they can provide support for this too.
Your visiting carer is available to help you live your life in the exact way you want to, meaning you can do everything on your terms-from getting up at your preferred time in the morning, to attending essential appointments.
Visiting care is not confined to your home alone, your visiting carer can take you out and about shopping, to social groups and activities or even to the local pub.
The local team can provide support with personal care, household duties, medication, meal prep and even complex care that is condition specific.
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.

24-hour live-in care for constant support
Live-in care provides a great alternative to residential care and has lots of benefits that could help keep your loved one comfortably in their own home.
Benefits of live-in care:
- One-to-one support – You will have one dedicated carer on hand all day and throughout the night too, to support you with everything from socialisation to advanced personal care.
- Round the clock assistance – Your live-in carer will move in to your property with you, and is always there to support you. If you require double ups we can support you with visiting carers who work alongside you live in carer.
- Compatibility – We take the time out to find out about your specific needs as well as who you are as a person to ensure we match you up with a companionable carer. You will be spending a lot of time with your live-in carer so it is essential that you get on.
- Continuity – Live-in care provides continuity in your day-to-day life with things such as your routine, favourite meals, and the property that you stay in. Providing a stable and familiar environment can be vital to ensuring your wellbeing and peace of mind.
- The finer details – Your home is trove of memories, and a place where you like things to be done in your own way. Your live-in carer will slot in to your usual life to maintain your routine and quality of life. Meaning you can eat when and what you like, keep your much loved pets at home and everything else that goes along with being in your much-cherished home.
A live-in carer can support you with personal care, medication support, and even complex care needs.

Respite care from the Rochdale branch
We understand that your care needs could change quickly, or may not be ongoing in the first place. For this reason we can provide you with as little as one day of visiting care, or as few as three days of live-in care.
Respite care is a great option if you have just been discharged from hospital, or if you are recovering from an illness but soon to be back to your normal self.
It can provide you with great peace of mind if you are taking some time away and leaving a loved one at home, or if you would like support for yourself whilst you are on holiday.
Your respite carer can do the exact same things as a permanent carer, just on a short-term basis. Respite support is not limited to traditional care, we can also help you with one off events such as weddings, graduations or family parties.
I knew that care was what I wanted to do after looking after my own relatives. The team in Rochdale are a wonderful group of people.

Tailored care packages from dementia specialists
Dementia affects different people in different ways, so we tailor every care package to the individual to ensure they are receiving care that is personalised to their exact needs.
Familiarity and continuity are essential parts of dementia care to ensure that your loved one doesn’t suffer any unnecessary disruption that could be detrimental to their wellbeing.
All of our Rochdale carers have been through dementia-specific training meaning that they are fully able to manage any difficulties that you and your loved one face, and share their knowledge with you to make things easier.
Clinical care in Rochdale for your specific needs
We have a team of clinical nurse specialists on hand to support any care package where more complex care is required.
They have wide-ranging knowledge and experience in clinical care, and ensure the correct training has been given to carers supporting in a clinical package.
Our clinical team can support you with tracheostomy care, PEG feeding, bowel care and much more.
All carers receive regular training updates to ensure they are always prepared with the best skillset to manage your specific needs or condition.
Funding in the Rochdale area
Depending on your circumstances you may be entitled to some funding from your local authority. The best thing to do is contact them directly, and they will discuss your eligibility with you.
I you are eligible to funding you can request that the money is paid directly in to your own account, giving you the freedom to manage your finances how you would like to. This is called ‘direct payments’.
In some cases you may be required to top up the amount that you are given privately to reach the correct amount.
The team in Rochdale accept direct payments, and will be happy to discuss with you how they work in more detail.
Expert, dedicated and fully trained-your Rochdale carers
Every carer that works for Helping Hands has been recruited and trained in house so that we can ensure you are being supported by the best team of carers possible.
They go through an enhanced DBS check, and are fully vetted and reference checked.
On top of this, they receive regular training and support from their local management team, keeping them up to date with any changes that need to be accommodated.
Leanne and her management team are always available to support you and your carer, so if you ever have a query or problem someone will be available to assist.
We have an on-call team who operate around the clock to support you should you ever need someone to talk to outside of office hours.
