How visiting care is helping Audrey

Little and often, our visiting care makes a real difference

Visiting care offers the support you want, when you need it, so you can continue living from the comfort of your own home. With help from as little as half an hour a week and up to several visits a day, a visiting carer can make all the difference.

We’re here with a helping hand when you need it most and believe the best kind of care is care that’s reliable, consistent and completely custom-made to you. From support with your medication and going to the toilet through to knowing your favourite meal and whether you prefer a bath or shower, our visiting care service lets you continue living the life you want, on your terms.

As the nation’s favourite home care provider, and with nearly 30 years’ experience, all of our carers are fully trained in providing quality care in the home. As such, we can offer specialist support for people living with dementia, as well as care in the home for those with Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis or facing challenges after a stroke, to name a few.

We know that asking for help can be difficult at times. We’re here to talk you through your visiting care options and the full costs. Call us today to speak to one of our friendly customer advisors.

Care that’s built around you

We understand how important it is to keep your independence. If things get too much to manage on your own, we’re here to step in with extra support. That’s the real difference with home care, whether it’s through live-in care or visiting support – you have complete choice over the options.

With Helping Hands, your home care support can shrink or grow, if or when your needs change. We cover the full range of care services for adults of all ages, from offering companionship and help around the home through to 24-hour care for complex health needs.

Relax. We’re here for you all the way.
