What does home care mean?
Home care offers the extra support, reassurance and companionship that may be needed for you to continue living at home as independently as is possible.
There are times when we all need a little extra support. Whether it is help with the household chores, personal care, medication or mobility, a dedicated carer or personal assistant can be there to provide peace of mind.
But home care is not confined to the home. Your chosen carer can enable you to get out and about to pursue your hobbies, interests and living an independent life. You can even receive support while you’re on holiday or on visits to see family and friends.
Types of homecare
Care and support comes in all shapes and sizes.
You can arrange daily or weekly visits at times that suit, during the day or overnight. If you want support on-hand 24/7, our dedicated live-in care service is the one for you.
Terrific standard of care… The care my Mother received from all the staff at Helping Hands was outstanding. The regular carer Rebecca was fantastic and able to strike an immediate rapport… Read more

What a nationwide homecare provider can do
Not all homecare is regulated. By choosing a regulated nationwide provider you are opting for a service that is managed from start to finish by a specialist care manager and their support team.
This means that your carer’s pay, training and appraisals are all handled for you, as are regular checks and supervisions to ensure you’re receiving the best possible care. You also have guaranteed cover for when your carer takes a break or goes on holiday – this is all arranged for you.
Care needs can change, and sometimes quite suddenly. By choosing a nationwide specialist you have the expertise of a network of Registered Managers with the Care Quality Commission and clinical specialists who have all trained within the NHS.
Helping Hands is commonly regarded as the UK’s specialists in homecare. We’re local to you – with a family-run team of award-winning experts spread across all corners of England and Wales.
How much does homecare cost?
The cost of homecare depends on the type of service you’re looking for.
Home care visits start from £18.50 per hour for a fully trained carer to offer support within your own home. Prices are also available for 30-min or 45-min visits, and there are set prices for overnight calls.
For the 24-hour support of a live-in carer, prices start from £1,015 per week, which is close to the weekly cost of a care home. Daily prices are available for temporary live-in care for less than two weeks.
Unlike homecare agencies, these costs include the setting up and ongoing management of your package of care, including a free and no-obligation meeting with a specialist to discuss the options.
Excellent company to deal with, from the office staff through to the carers who visit my mother… We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone… Read more
