Visiting and live-in care in Stalybridge
Situated on the outskirts of the iconic and cultural city of Manchester, Stalybridge is home to many interesting things. As well as having two entries in the Guinness Book of Records 1995 for being residence to the pubs with the longest and shortest names in the UK, and holding 16 of 63 plaques within the Borough, Stalybridge is also home to the UK’s leading home care provider, Helping Hands.
Covering areas such as Matley, Newton Wood, Millbrook, Copley, Heyrod, Ridge Hill, Dukinfield and the surrounding areas, our local Helping Hands team are here to provide you with individually tailored, high-quality home care packages that give you the support you need to live safely and comfortably at home.
Whether you need visits from as little as 30 minutes to help you with your household chores, or full-time live-in support for a progressive or complex condition, our Stalybridge team are here for you.
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."

We understand the importance of having complete control over your care, which is why our Stalybridge team will work closely with you and your loved ones to provide a package of support that is completely tailored to you and your needs. So, whether you are simply becoming a little slower on your feet and you’d like some support with getting out into the local community, or your loved one has recently been diagnosed with dementia and you would like them to receive regular support to keep them safe and comfortable at home – we’re here to give you the support you need when you need it.
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.

Live-in care that supports your independence
As a valuable alternative to a residential care or nursing home, live-in care gives you 24-hour dedicated support without the upheaval of leaving the home you know and love. We understand that it can be daunting to invite somebody new to live with you in your home, but our Stalybridge team are here to provide compassionate, unintrusive guidance and support to alleviate any worries you may have, so you can feel at ease with your support.
Here at Helping Hands, we believe that providing high-quality care is more than just helping with the practical day-to-day elements of your life. Your mental wellbeing is just as important as your physical wellbeing, which is why our care is more than just care; it’s companionship. Not only do we work with you to ensure that your care package is built by and around you, but we’ll also liaise with you to find a carer that is compatible with your personality, hobbies and interests.
So, if you enjoy a morning walk around the local park or travelling into Manchester to watch your favourite football team play, we’ll be right there with you.
Domiciliary care for you or your loved one
The great thing about domiciliary care from Helping Hands is that you have complete control over the frequency and intensity over your care. Whether you would like visits from as little as 30 minutes per week to help you with the housework, or regular overnight stays to ensure that you can have a peaceful night’s rest knowing there’s someone there if you need them, we’ll be there whenever you need, for as long as you need us.
From mobility support to clinical care, our team are professionally trained and fully equipped to provide you with the level of support you need to feel safe and comfortable in the place you feel most comfortable. After all, there really is no place like home.
Specialist dementia support from our Stalybridge team
With over 850,000 people in the UK living with dementia, the need for professional guidance and support has never been greater. That’s why our Stalybridge dementia care team are here to support not just the individual living with dementia, but their surrounding families too.
The time following a dementia diagnosis can often bring about lots of uncertainties, and it can be incredibly unnerving for you and your loved ones as you come to terms with the diagnosis. That’s why our Stalybridge team are here to provide information, guidance and support to help you and your loved ones throughout your journey with dementia.
Elderly care to support you at home
As we reach our elderly years, it can often become apparent that our minds and bodies aren’t as quick as they once were; but with Helping Hands, you don’t have to make any sacrifices to your independence to accommodate that. Whether you need a friendly face to pop in for a cup of tea and a chat every now and again, or some assistance as you go out to do your weekly shop, our Stalybridge elderly care team are here to give you the support you need to feel safe and independent in the place you feel most comfortable – your home.
And if you’re living with a progressive or complex condition, we can increase the regularity of your care, giving you peace of mind that you always have a helping hand.
Short-term respite care whenever you need it
The need for short-term support can arise at any time. It may be that you are due to return home from a stay in hospital and you need some support whilst you get back on your feet, or perhaps your usual caregiver is taking a break and you need some short-term care until they return. Whatever it is you need, our Stalybridge team can provide respite care packages to ensure that you never have to go without help.
We understand that care needs can arise and change at any given time, often with very little notice. But worry not, our team can provide individually tailored, person-centred care packages to give you the support you need, when you need it – often with as little as 24 hours’ notice.
Fully-trained carers that are here for you
We’re proud to be one of the UK’s leading home care providers, having supported over 40,000 families since our inception in 1989. But without the commitment, dedication and compassion of our incredible workforce of carers, we wouldn’t be here providing the service that we’re so proud of today.
The qualities that are needed to become a good carer cannot always be taught, and it is the genuine compassion, kindness and empathy of our carers, and our award winning training, that keeps Helping Hands at the forefront of the care industry.
What’s more, we’re fully regulated and regularly inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), so you can rest assured that the service you’re receiving is always reliable, safe and efficient.
