Live-in care in Alton
At Helping Hands, we’ve been helping people to remain independent and confident in the comfort of their own homes since 1989. In that time, we’ve become experts in delivering compassionate, expert home care to customers across England and Wales – including in Alton. Our home care team in Alton are fully trained and equipped to provide you with a bespoke care plan that is fully tailored to your specific care needs, with weekly visits starting from as little as 30 minutes a week.
As well as Alton, we also provide care in the surrounding areas including Greatgate, Farley, Prestwood, Quixhill, Denstone and more.
Perhaps the most famous local landmark near Alton is the Alton Towers theme park, which is visited by over 2 million people each year and is home to 41 rides – including 10 roller coasters.
Home care from Helping Hands is anything but a roller coaster – in fact, it’s very plain sailing. We make things as straightforward as possible for you by putting together a care plan that is completely tailored to your individual requirements and preferences, and our compassionate carers will always make sure your needs are being properly looked after in an empathetic, professional manner.
Jenny has lived in the Stoke-on-Trent area for over 36 years and has held a number of care roles during that time. She loves meeting with customers in the local area and finding out how her carers can support people across Stoke.
“I believe it’s often the little things in life, like a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, which all have the potential to turn a life around,” Jenny says.
“I have progressed from working as a Care Support Worker to a Registered Manager, working with individuals with various needs, including the elderly, people with learning disabilities, palliative care, autism and challenging behaviours,” she adds. “I also hold a Level 4 NVQ in Leadership & Management and am a qualified trainer in moving and handling. 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.

With live-in care from Helping Hands, you’ll benefit from having one of our superb carers come to live with you in your home and provide you with round-the-clock support, ensuring you’re never left isolated or feeling unable to cope with your household tasks and chores. We’ll pair you up with a carer who matches your personality and shares your interests and likes to make sure you’ve not only got someone who can provide you with care, but who can also be a companion to you. All of our carers are highly trained and will respect your personal space, as well as being able to assist you in a variety of ways around the home – from helping you bathe and dress to preparing your meals and assisting with medication.
It’s not always possible to anticipate when you might need care. In those moments when you unexpectedly find yourself without the support you normally require to manage in the day-to-day, emergency care from Helping Hands might be the ideal solution. It might be that your normal carer has been taken ill and is unable to fulfil their normal schedule, or you’ve been discharged from hospital earlier than anticipated. Whatever your reason for needing emergency care, Helping Hands are generally able to have one of our brilliant carers in your home within 24 hours of your call to seamlessly pick up all the routines and chores your normal carer would take care of.
When you choose to use a private care provider such as Helping Hands, you’ll receive a level of care that truly values attention to detail. From your very first phone call to us, every aspect of your care plan will be completely tailored to your individual needs and preferences – down to which meals you prefer, and when you’d like to go to bed. You’ll also get to benefit from one-to-one care from one of our exceptional carers, all of whom have received our award-winning training.
With overnight care, you’ll benefit from having one of our carers stay with you throughout the night in case you need assistance with anything or experience a fall or medical emergency. Overnight care offers invaluable peace of mind to loved ones and gives you the reassurance of knowing there’s constantly an expert pair of hands nearby who can give you all the assistance you require should anything occur.
We’re extremely proud of our brilliant care team in Alton. Every carer has been specifically recruited for their shared desire to provide compassionate, dedicated home care that truly makes a difference to our customers’ wellbeing and quality of life. All care staff undergo thorough background checks before joining Helping Hands, and receive ongoing training to ensure they’re always up to date with the best industry practices and standards. In addition, we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can have total confidence in our commitment to very high standards of care.
