Personal Care for the Elderly
in Greater Manchester

What is Personal Care?

As people get older, we all need a helping hand from time to time with the daily routine. Personal care is commonly associated with personal hygiene and getting dressed or undressed.

With a personal carer, you’re able to live the way you want, in your own home. With support from experienced carers, you don’t have to compromise your independence. Unlike in care homes for the elderly, you have one-to-one support from a private home carer focused on helping you enjoy life the way you want.

Personal homecare is particularly great for people who don’t want disruption in their life. There’s no need to move or get used to new places and faces. People with dementia benefit from homecare and remaining in the familiar surroundings of their own home. Safe, comfortable and well looked after by one-to-one support.

How does personal care work?

Personal Home Care is tailored to your needs. Whether you like to get up early, have a lie-in, take care of your personal care needs before or after breakfast, your personal care assistant will adjust to your routine.

With a personal care assistant visiting regularly, you’ll have the reassurance of receiving one-to-one care in your own home. Our personal carers in Greater Manchester support your needs as they change.

Professional care workers always respect your dignity at all times. And because you choose the same people to help, they’ll get to know how you like things done, so everything is just right!

We help families across Greater Manchester find the best personal carer services for their unique needs. All carers have had their qualifications and criminal record checked. You don’t have to worry about doing it yourself. And you can get the support you need within days.

  • Great live in carers. I needed live in care for my mum. Holm Care were really helpful and friendly. They really do have the best carers.

  • They've all been wonderful looking after my elderly dad. He's much happier now with his carers. It's good that we have the same people coming all the time as he has dementia and the previous homecare agency sent different people all the time, which was confusing for him.
    I can't visit him in Manchester at the moment because of lockdown, but I feel better that he's being well looked after and his carers are so loving. Money well spent.

  • I loved working here. Much better than the agencies I've worked for. I had great flexibility and the pay was good. To be honest, they really look after the carers. Much better than anywhere else I worked. I'll definitely come back to work with them. Also liked that I could do homecare and live in care around all of Greater Manchester and not just one part. I sometimes did extra live in care work for a lovely elderly couple near Stockport on top of my usual home care visits.

  • I can't express how lovely our carer has been for mum. She'd been trapped in hospital for so long we were worried she'd never return home. I've got nothing but praise for everyone who works at Holm Care. Thank you so much. I really recommend anyone looking for private care around the Manchester / Stockport area should try them.

  • Shame I had to move. I've really enjoyed working for Holm. I felt valued and also enjoyed care work once again. It was really rewarding. I hope they start in London.

  • I've used some other big care agencies but didn't like their service. I'm so glad a friend told me about this home care company. They look after my elderly parents and have been great. They're so caring. I really appreciate the care all the carers have given.

  • I've worked for agencies which didn't really care about me. It's so great to work somewhere where they care about the carers. I've been working as a live in carer for an elderly lady in Manchester and it's been great. Pay is really good too.
    I love working for Holm Care

  • We've been using Holm for live in care. I can only say how good the office and care staff are. They have always been very friendly and helpful. The carers are the best we've ever used.

You don’t have to call us to find out how much our personal care services cost. Our personal care services cost £15 per hour during daytimes Monday to Saturday; £18 per hour at nights; and £22.50 per hour on Sundays and Bank Holidays. 

We’ve made it quick and easy to find the ideal personal carer.

Just register and provide all the necessary information, and then choose the carers you like.

According to CQC, personal care consists of the provision of personal care for people who are unable to provide it for themselves, because of old age, illness or disability, and which is provided to them in the place where those people are living at the time when the care is provided. As an example, this includes personal care provided by a domiciliary care agency. It also includes Shared Lives schemes.

Everyone has their own opinion, but in our experience, personal carers should show empathy, respect, patience, positivity, reliability and care as well as the right skills, qualifications and experience.

At Holm Care, we check that all our carers meet these qualities.
