Our Hourly Visiting Carers
Helping Hands 25 years of successfully providing care in Warwickshire, Worcestershire and the Cotswolds is built on having the very best carers in our local teams. We are incredibly proud of every single one.
We know that each moment of care provided has the opportunity to change someone’s life for the better so we make sure that our local visiting carers are people who will make every day count. That is why we are so selective, only 10% of all applicants meet our exacting standards and make it through to our care team.

Why our carers are simply the best
Whilst the wealth of skills and experience that our carers have is key what makes the real difference are the personalities and characteristics that our carers have. Every carer is passionate about the people in the local community that they support and is committed to providing you with the very best possible care, with dignity, respect and compassion.
A commitment to training
The skills that our carers have are second to none. Each Helping Hands carer graduates from our Centre of Excellence Training Academy which is managed by our award winning Training Manager Julie Mills.
Every local hourly visiting carer receives ongoing personal development, including the Helping Hands level 2 diploma in Health and Social Care, which is the industry recognised qualification for care professionals. In addition we provide specialist training in conditions such as Stroke and Dementia.When our bespoke training is added to their existing skills and care experience, we really do have a winning combination
Meet some of our extraordinary team below:
“Hello, I am Mandy, I’ve been caring with Helping Hands for nearly 18 years now , and it’s not just a job. I’ve never thought about being anything else, care is so rewarding, makes you feel good and I’ve met amazing people and heard a lifetime of stories.I feel so privileged in being a carer. I like helping people who need looking after, helping them stay in their own homes and to see the smile on their faces when you turn up in the morning. They may not see anyone else all day, so you really feel like your making a difference ”
“Hi my name is Sam. My favourite part of the job is the relationships you build up with customers in their homes. After working so closely and regularly with them they become more like friends. There is nothing better than the appreciation I get from someone whose life I’ve made that little bit more comfortable and pleasurable. I also work within a great community of carers who really make you feel part of a team. I’ve been a Carer for nearly 5 years now… I’m not looking back. I’m just wondering why I didn’t do it sooner! ”
“Hello, I am Nicola. I care around my studies and to say that caring is a rewarding, fulfilling job sounds trite but I have honestly found it to be just that. I’ve learned that care is so much more than commodes and cleaning: I find the insight into other people’s lives very interesting, and I love how at every visit I get a new perspective on life and even if you only visit one customer a day, then you’ve made a difference. How many people can say that their job allows them to do that! “
