Live-in care and visiting home care tailored to you
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.

Meet Robert, our Branch Manager
"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."
Home care visits tailored to you
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 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:
- Personal care – If you need help with personal care, dressing and continence care
- Medication – Friendly reminders and support to administer your medicines
- Routine calls – Gentle support to help you get in and out of bed
- Mobility support – If you need assistance with getting out and about
- Companionship – Popping in to see you for a cup of tea and a chat
- Household duties – Helping you to keep your house clean, your laundry washed and your fridge in date
- Health and nutrition – Helping you with your groceries and to prepare nutritious meals
The office staff and the carers could not be more helpful. Nothing is too much trouble and we’re full of praise for all the carers.

Live-in care to cater for all your needs
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.

Domiciliary care to support you in Wilmslow
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.
Specialist dementia care from the Wilmslow team
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.
Elderly care for you or your loved ones
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.
Respite care for short-term support
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.
I hope each time I visit I have helped support someone in whatever they need, brightened their day, and made them less lonely.
