At Helping Hands, we’ve been providing customers with dedicated and compassionate home care since 1989. Our 30-plus years of experience have taught us the importance of being able to provide you or your loved ones with a tailored care package that supports your independence and preferences whilst allowing you to enjoy the comfort and familiarity of your own home.
With all of our care offerings fully regulated by the CQC and the CIW, you can be completely confident that we’re committed to providing you with the highest standard of care. Contact us today to find out how we can meet you care needs.
We can also provide care for you in nearby locations such as Burland, Stoneley Green, Beambridge, Edleston, Baddington, Batherton and more.
Acton’s name is derived from the Old English words āc (oak) and tūn (enclosed garden, enclosure), literally meaning “a garden or a field enclosed by oaks”, suggesting Acton originated from somewhat humble beginnings.
Established in 1989 from similarly humble beginnings, Helping Hands was a family-run business for 30 years and has developed a reputation for compassionate, diligent home care. We still have a strong family-centred ethos, with people at the heart of everything that we do, and with our care plans starting from just 30 minutes a week we’re sure to be able to find a support plan to meet your specific wishes.
"I joined Helping Hands after being a Manager in a nursery for over 13 years, this change came after having my third child who had disabilities. I realised then how much of a difference a helping hand can make, a chat and a nice smile goes a long way.
"We provide a high standard of care to all and make sure everyone has their needs met at all times. This wouldn't be possible without my amazing team of carers who are the face of my Branch, nothing is too much for them and they go the extra mile for everyone.
"I feel very passionate about providing care and feel that Helping Hands shares my values on providing high quality, truly person-centred care and support."
For over 30 years, we've been supporting people with care, nurse-supported care and companionship across England and Wales. As industry-leaders in home care, we know what it takes to provide the right level of care so that you can retain your independence in the comfort of your beloved home.

Our visiting care plans are fully adaptable to your requirements and wishes, and our brilliant carers are fully trained to support your specific needs, whatever your condition. We’ve got over 30 years’ experience in providing person-centred care to people living with dementia, motor neurone disease, spinal injuries, mental health conditions, loneliness and limited mobility. In that time, we’ve learned just how valuable your independence and comfort are to your wellbeing, so being able to receive care in the familiar surroundings of your own home is incredibly beneficial.
Whether you or your loved ones are finding your care requirements to be increasingly complex, or you’re not comfortable living on your own and need companionship, live-in care is a brilliant alternative to a care home. Our superb live-in carers will provide you with round-the-clock companionship and expert support, assisting you in the home and with your daily routines. We always listen to your preferences and your wishes to ensure you’re matched with a carer who shares your interests and personality, and our carers possess expertise in supporting people living with various conditions.
Helping Hands are a private home care company, rather than an agency, which means everything’s a lot more straightforward with us and there’ll be certain standards you can be confident we’ll meet. For instance, we directly employ our carers, whereas many agencies will require their carers to be self-employed. This means you won’t get any unexpected charges or hidden costs with us, and our brilliant carers will be able to focus all their energy on supporting your independence to the best of their ability.
Domiciliary care is a brilliant option if you find yourself needing extra support but want to remain in your own home where you’re familiar with your surroundings and close to your loved ones. With over 30 years’ experience in delivering compassionate, people-centred care, we’re perfectly placed to assess and meet your care requirements. Our visiting service starts from just 30 minutes a week, and we’ll take steps to ensure you can design a package of care that meets your needs, regardless of your condition. Alternatively, our live-in care service provides you with round-the-clock support, companionship and reassurance.
