Meet Claire Ashbrook, our Branch Manager
“Hello! I’m Claire, the Branch Manager at Helping Hands Warrington. I have been working in care since I was 19 and have lived in the Warrington area all my life. The passion we all share at our branch really shines through and I believe this helps us to deliver the highest standard of care possible.”
Home visits for extra support
As one of the UK’s leading providers in home care, we understand the difference it can make to keep you surrounded by your home comforts, as opposed to moving into residential care. Our Warrington team will listen to all of your care needs and requirements when creating your care plan, but most importantly make sure that your chosen carers are matched to your personality and interests too.
With experience in conditions ranging from Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis and many more, you will feel safe in the knowledge that all of our carers are trained to deliver the best quality of care centred around you and your care needs.
Whether you’re in your senior years and need a bit of extra help with your weekly shop, or if you’re a young adult with a physical disability but you need assistance getting to and from work – we can help.
With visiting care starting from as little as 30 minutes per week up to several daily calls, we can accommodate a whole host of different care requirements. And you don’t have to worry about changing your arrangements if your condition alters; the Warrington team’s flexibility means that we will work around you to give you the very best care.
I’m so thrilled with what you have done for me since coming out of hospital.

Live-in care for all of your needs
You may have a progressive condition where you require more intensive support, or it could be that you live as a couple and both need constant care – whatever your situation, we can make sure your care needs are fulfilled in your own home.
As the name suggests, live-in care is when a carer will live with you in your home to be there whenever you need them. Even if you require support to take medication during the night or need to be safely moved regularly to avoid pressure sores, a dedicated live-in carer chosen by you will be there to negate any worries and ensure that you’re taken care of.
With support from an expert clinical nurse team, we are also able to assist with more complex conditions such as neurological and spinal injuries, stoma care and tracheostomy care. And with all of our live-in carers trained at our bespoke training facility in Warwickshire, you can be safe in the knowledge that you will only receive the very best in professional and comprehensive care.
Domiciliary care in Warrington
Traditionally known as care at home, domiciliary care comes with a whole host of benefits – including being cared for where you feel at your most comfortable. It might be that you just need a bit of extra help around the house because your mobility isn’t what it used to be, or you need someone to pop in to help you administer your daily medication. Whatever it is, we’ll create a bespoke package of care centred around you.
And it’s not just you or your loved one that we care for. Even if you have a beloved pet or are living with a partner, we’ll provide support throughout your home and ensure your canine companion always has his tail wagging!
Expert dementia care in Warrington
Being recognised as one of the nation’s leading dementia home care specialists means that we don’t just support you with the practical elements that comes with the condition, but we can enable you to live well with dementia – both physically and mentally.
We understand how unsettling it can be to get to grips with the symptoms of dementia, particularly if the condition progresses quickly. With all of our carers being trained in dementia, we can help to alleviate anxiety and worry felt by you or your loved ones by providing only the very best in dementia care.
Elderly care to enable independence
Part of getting older doesn’t mean that you lose your independence or have to move to a nursing home. We believe that all of our customers should have the choice to do what they want, when they want – regardless or age or any additional needs. Claire’s team will ensure that you can do just that, even if you do find things a bit more difficult in your senior years.
Loneliness is also another factor that can cause difficulty for the elderly. With visiting or live-in care from the Warrington team, loneliness is something that we can support you with because our carers aren’t just there to provide practical assistance; they’re there to be a companion too.
Short-term breaks for respite
For full-time carers, respite is vital to ensure you get the chance to have some rest and recuperation. With respite care from the Warrington Team, we can ensure that your loved one will be cared for in the way that you would deliver their care without having to compromise on quality or sentiment.
It’s not just a break for a regular caregiver that we provide respite care for; it’s also suitable for:
- Couples – Allows time for you to have a rest while your partner is still cared for
- Family holidays – We can accompany you and your family so you all have a holiday
- Short break – We’ll also come with you if you want to take a break without family
- Hospital discharge – Extra assistance to come home after a hospital stay
- One-off occasions – Support to attend special events such as a wedding or birthday party
Fully-trained carers in Warrington
As the first and only home care provider to be recognised as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care, we can ensure that all of our carers only receive the very best training. Covering modules such as manual handling, health & safety, first aid, safeguarding and dementia, our carers are only trained in-house by our team of experts.
Not using any external agencies also means that we can carry out our own vigorous background checks including the Disclosure Barring Service (DBS), and monitor the calibre of carers that we employ. Of the amount of people that apply to work for us, only 2% actually pass all of our checks and become carers, meaning we never forgo quality or expertise.
To ensure we meet with the very highest of standards, all aspects of our service are inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure we are adhering to strict guidelines and regulations.
“I really love my job because it feels like I’m visiting family and friends when I’m with my customers. A lot of my calls are companionship, taking them out for nice meals and I try to make it fun for everyone”
Jenna, Warrington carer
