Helping Hands really are the home care experts as we’ve supported thousands of customers since 1989 to remain in the home they love while receiving the care they need. Our compassionate carers really do go above and beyond to keep you safe and cared for in your own home and thanks to being fully regulated by the CQC, we are the first stop when it comes to excellent standards of care. Talk to us today to discover more about care at home.
We can support you in and around Banbury, Bodicote, North Newington, Wroxton, Drayton, Warkworth, Overthorpe, Middleton Cheney and the surrounding areas.
Banbury is a market town with a rich and varied history. In 2002, the remains of a British Iron Age settlement dating back to 200 BC were discovered, as well as a Roman villa at nearby Wykham Park. The nursery rhyme mentioning Banbury Cross also put the town on the map and in 2005 a statue of the lady upon her horse was unveiled by Princess Anne, on a site next to the present Banbury Cross.
We are all about celebrating heritage at Helping Hands, so talk to us today about our visiting and live-in care service that start from just 30 minutes a week and see how we could be supporting you or your loved ones.
“I joined Helping Hands in 2019 after 18 years in financial services in the customer experience sector. I moved into the care industry as I was looking for a role with a people-centred organisation with great purpose. Helping Hands has already proved to be exactly that and this is a really exciting time for the business as we start to grow our high street presence across the UK. As Area Care Manager looking after all our new branches in the South during their set up phase, I am thoroughly enjoying recruiting the best of the best in the industry and seeing our new branches open up to deliver brilliant things for our customers and, of course, our people.”
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.

We are not an agency - we employ every carer directly
Get to know your carer before care starts
Family-run and experts in home care since 1989
Fully flexible care packages as your needs change
Flexible care provided in your own home with a fully qualified carer. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes up to several hourly or overnight calls throughout the week.
One-to-one support from a fully qualified care that lives with you. Full-time support so you can stay at home where you feel most comfortable.
Our visiting care service is delivered by compassionate and expert carers who are well-trained and knowledgeable in a range of different conditions. Our service is highly flexible to your own needs, starting from just 30 minutes a day and increasing in frequency as and when you need it. Your carers will come at prearranged times and will undertake everything you require at home, such as housework, personal care, meal preparation, medication, and much more.
Having a live-in carer in your home doesn’t mean you’ll be fed up of the sight of each other; quite the opposite in fact, as you’ll hopefully end up great friends. Having a carer living with you means one-to-one support around the clock which is reassuring for both you and your loved ones. Perhaps you don’t like being in your home alone anymore or it might be that you have complex needs that necessitate full-time care? Whatever the circumstances, we can help.
The fact that we’re not a home care agency might not seem important, but it makes all the difference. The fact that we directly employ all of our carers instead of making them self-employed as some agencies do, means that they can concentrate solely on your care and have higher satisfaction rates than agency carers do. Added to that is the fact that we don’t charge hidden referral fees means that you get exactly what you’re promised at Helping Hands.
Domiciliary care is care at home, which is the most preferable place to be when you need help and support. Compared to residential care you get everything your own way with domiciliary care, no set mealtimes, you decide when to get up and go to bed, and every other aspect of your daily routines. You can choose live-in or visiting care, at times and days to suit you, and with one-to-one care at home you’ll never have to wait for anything.
Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can leave you feeling that you don’t know which way to turn; do you need care straight away, or should you carry on as you are for the time being? At Helping Hands, we are dementia specialists who have been caring for people living with dementia for over 30 years, so you can trust us when we say we understand. Our carers will support you with every aspect of your care, whether at the start of or throughout your dementia journey, so you’ll always be able to live your best life at home with our dementia care.
Respite care can be essential sometimes if your regular carer is going for a well-earned break or your family members are going on holiday. They may even want you to go with them, or perhaps you have a special family occasion to plan for. Regardless of the circumstances, we can help to keep you cared for and thanks to your personalised support plan we’ll keep you safe within your own home while following your routines; in fact you may not even notice that your carer has changed!
Whether you’re living with age-related frailties or recovering from an illness, you may find that elderly care can bridge the gap between not needing care and having a little extra help. Perhaps you’re struggling to lift the vacuum cleaner upstairs, or you’re finding it’s the stairs themselves that are causing the problem, we can undertake housework, laundry, bed-making, meal preparation and so much more.
Our expert service comes in part from only having the very best carers work for us. Not everyone becomes a Helping Hands carer; we select only the most suitable people who share out ethos for delivering high quality, person-centred care and then train them thoroughly to be able to support our customers in the way we expect. We also offer our carers professional development opportunities to keep their motivation high and promote from within when appropriate. We’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you can expect nothing but the best from us.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
