Elderly Private Home Care in Greater Manchester

What is Private Home Care?

Our Private Home Care Service enables older people to live independently at home, the way they want. You don’t have to compromise your independence and can book private home carers to meet your needs, when you need them.

Unlike with many local authority care packages, our private home carers visit for a minimum of one hour to ensure nothing is rushed, and everything is done the way you would like.

Private Care at Home isn’t solely available to people funding their own care. This is also available for people who receive local government and NHS funded care packages.

Using our Private Home Care Services, older men and women in Greater Manchester are able to live in their own homes. You can rely upon one friendly face from one of our carefully vetted private carers to be there for you.

Private Home Care for the Elderly is particularly great for older people in Greater Manchester who don’t want disruption in their lives. There’s no need to move, get used to new places or faces. They can remain in familiar surroundings, comfortable and well cared for by the one-to-one support provided by their private carer.


How does Private Home Care work?

Private Home Care is tailored to meet your needs. Your personal care assistant adjusts to these needs, whether you need a few hours from time to time, or someone to keep you company for longer periods. With a specialist private care assistant for the elderly regularly visiting, you’ll have the reassurance of receiving one-to-one care in your own home. Our private carers support your needs as they change.

Our 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!

  • 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.
