Elderly care

200 new families choose us every month. 28 years of experience counts.

Care that lets you focus on being a family

If you’re in need of some extra care, speak to the nation’s favourite home care company, Helping Hands. By listening and getting to know you, we provide care as unique as you are, in the home you love. It’s made us the company of choice for elderly care. 

With our fresh look at home care, we match you with a carer who fits into your lifestyle so you or your loved one can stay at home. Whether it’s for extra help around the house, avoiding falls, providing companionship or for specific nursing support, one of our trained carers can step in with all the assurances you need.

Choosing Helping Hands for elderly care means your support can easily lessen or grow, if or when your needs change. We cater for the full range of services, either providing round-the-clock care from a live-in carer or visiting care little and often. And, with nearly 30 years’ experience in providing quality care for the elderly, we offer a continuous service that you can rely on.

With the expertise of our nationwide nursing specialists, we can build tailored care plans that help people living with dementia, Alzheimer’s, spinal injuries and stroke aftercare, to name a few. And we also have the experience to support with continence careventilators and PEG-gastrostomy.

We know that it can be very difficult to ask for help. Our friendly team is here to walk you through your home care options. Call us today to find out more.

Fully regulated elderly care at home

There’s something special about a Helping Hands carer. We handpick each one because of their commitment and compassion before taking them through our award-winning training programme. What’s more, because every single one of our carers are directly employed by us, we provide them ongoing support and extra training as needed.

Unlike introductory care agencies, Helping Hands is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and we provide a fully managed service. By choosing Helping Hands, you don’t just have the personal assistance from your carer – you also have the full support of our registered local care managers and registered nurses, plus over two decades of specialist home care experience.

We pride ourselves on providing elderly care of the highest quality. We’re nationwide with trained carers in your area.

More about us

The cost of home care is very much dependent on your personal needs and preferences.

Live-in care

Prices start from £985 per week for a full-time live-in carer, which is comparable to the weekly cost of a residential care home. The difference is that you or your loved receives one-to-one tailored support in the comfort of your home.

Visiting care

A visiting carer can drop-in to provide personal care and support around the home, for as little as 30 minutes each week. Prices start from £17.50 per hour for a fully trained carer.

No hidden fees

With Helping Hands, you can be assured there are no hidden fees. It’s best to call us for an exact quote or to learn more about your funding options.

Continuing healthcare funding

This may be available if you need a full-time carer for health reasons. It includes funding to cover personal care, nursing care and any costs related to household adjustments due to your health condition.
