A part of the Cheshire Golden Triangle, Wilmslow is one of the most sought-after places to live in the UK after central London. What was once home to Alan Turing after his integral role of codebreaking during the Second World War, Wilmslow is now home to one of the UK’s leading home care providers – Helping Hands.
Our friendly and dedicated carers can support with help little and often in your home, assisting you with the housework, personal care and mobility. From hourly visiting care to around-the-clock live-in care, our team can provide all the assistance you need to maintain your autonomy with flexible care plans that suit you.

"I’ve lived in the Cheshire/Manchester area for many years now, with my first job based on Knutsford High Street.
“I began working in the health and care sector 25 years ago, where I was a Day Service Officer for adults with learning difficulties – which I thoroughly enjoyed. From this, I gained managerial experience across several care agencies and made my way up the ladder. For the past four years, I’ve been working with the long-term unemployed, helping them move back into work and supporting them in their new roles – it’s been very rewarding.
“Helping Hands stood out for me as their values mirrored exactly what I thought delivery of care should be about. It’s not just a job, and this is apparent from the feedback received from both the customers and the carers. It’s great to be a part of this wonderful team."

Fully flexible care packages as your needs change
Flexible care provided in your own home with a fully qualified carer. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes up to several hourly or overnight calls throughout the week.
One-to-one support from a fully qualified care that lives with you. Full-time support so you can stay at home where you feel most comfortable.
Here at Helping Hands, it’s vital to us that, regardless of your care needs, you are able to live a safe and independent life in the comfort of your own home. It might be that you need support with getting out and about in your local community, or perhaps you are living with a complex condition that requires more intensive support throughout the day. Regardless of your needs, we’re here to ensure that you have the right level of home care to keep you safe, happy and independent.
Everyone is different, and that’s exactly why each of our care packages are tailored entirely around the individual and their needs. Robert and his team will work closely with you so that you receive the care you want, when you want it. So, if you need 30-minute drop-ins just to help you prepare nutritious meals, or more complex care to support you throughout the night, our dedicated team in Wilmslow are here to ensure that you have the support you need within your home.
Whether it’s administering your medication or ensuring your pet has been out for a walk, our Wilmslow team can support you with any of the following:
Arranging for more intensive support for you or your loved one can often be distressing for all involved, especially if residential care isn’t a preferred option. With live-in care from Robert and his team, you will receive bespoke care from our carers who are dedicated to keeping you safe and independent within the comfort of your own home. With round-the-clock assistance and a detailed care plan that is built around you, a live-in carer from our Wilmslow team will get to know you and your schedule so that your usual routine will not be compromised by your care needs.
We understand how important it is for you to receive flexible care within your control, and with no restrictions on visitors, mealtimes, menus or daily schedules, the details of your care will be exactly where it should be – in your hands.
We believe that care isn’t just about providing practical support; it’s about building companionship – and that’s exactly what you’ll get with live-in care from our Wilmslow team. If you enjoy revisiting history at Quarry Bank Mill or taking a stroll around the Wilmslow artisan market, your carer will be right there with you.

Otherwise known as care at home, domiciliary care gives you the freedom to choose the frequency and intensity of your care. Whether you need 30 minutes a day to help you get washed and dressed, or more regular visits to support more complex care needs such as PEG feeding and stoma management, Robert and his team are here to help you what whatever you need, all within the comfort of your own home.
We’re proud to be one of the leading dementia specialists in the UK, and with dementia diagnosis rates increasing, we understand how important it is to get the right care for you or your loved one. From memory loss to behavioural changes and confusion, dementia comes in many different variants with many different symptoms, and Robert and his team are here to support you and your family through every step of your dementia journey.
With dementia, familiarity is key – which is why we provide the compassionate and person-centred care that is needed to enable you to remain comfortable in your own home. With expert training and 30 years’ experience under our belt, we’re here to support you with everything from preparing the right meals through to helping you to communicate with each other.
Growing older is inevitable, as are many of the physical changes that come with it – but just because your body may be a little slower than it once was, that doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your independence. With bespoke elderly care from our Wilmslow team, we’ll work around you to provide a personalised care package that supports you in the way you want it to.
Whether you’re finding a little more difficulty in your everyday tasks such as cooking and cleaning, or you’re living with a progressive condition and you’re needing more intensive support throughout the day and night, Robert and his team are here to ensure that you can retain your comfort and independence, just with a little help along the way.
We understand that care needs can be unpredictable and emergencies can happen, but we believe that there is never a circumstance that can justify a compromise to the care that you receive. If your regular caregiver needs to take some time away or there is an emergency, Robert and his team can step in with a bespoke respite care plan to give you dedicated, person-centred support – often with as little as 24 hours’ notice.
Perhaps you’re due to be discharged from hospital and you don’t feel comfortable going home alone just yet, or you’d like to visit Manchester for the day but you’re not able to go alone; whatever it is you need, respite care packages from our Wilmslow team will give you the support you need, for as long as you need.
Since our inception in 1989, we’ve been at the forefront of the care industry providing dedicated, person-centred care to thousands of families across the country. With each of our carers undergoing expert training covering modules such as health & safety, equality & diversity and dementia, we understand exactly what is required to provide the best level of care within your home.
Each of our carers receive full background checks, such as Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screenings, and with only 2% of our applicants successfully making it through to employment, you can rest assured that you are receiving care from only the best of the best. But most importantly, aside from all of the training and experience that our carers have, they all genuinely care.
And thanks to the dedication of our amazing carers and office staff, we’re proud to be the only home care provider endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care, as well as being fully licensed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Wilmslow to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
