Barnes has a long and detailed history, appearing in the Domesday Book of 1086 as “Berne” when its assets were eight hides and 20 acres of meadow, generating £7 per year. Due to its high percentage of independent shops, Barnes now generates a whole lot more than that for the local economy, which is something that Helping Hands is also all about.
We like to benefit the local areas of the places we’re based and we’re proud to say that lots of our staff get involved in charitable and good deeds. We’re already well established in areas nearby, so we thought it was time we got to know Barnes better too. With our visiting care and live-in care services we can make a huge difference to the lives of local people, so why not talk to us today and see how we could be supporting you?

You're in safe hands
Our carers are fully trained and checked to ensure a professional service.
We offer two types of home care:
Constant 24-hour care
One-to-one support from a fully qualified carer that lives with you. Full-time support so you can stay at home where you feel most comfortable.
In your own home
Personalised care plan
Carer to match your needs, personality and interests
As the Regional Care Director, it is my role to lead a hugely skilled care team operating in London, Essex and the South East, ensuring the highest levels of care are being delivered to our customers on a daily basis. We have a large branch network equipped to deal with all your hourly care needs, and I am also the Registered Manager with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for our live-in program, where we are set up to support you on a more permanent basis.
I am inspired on a daily basis by the true lengths my colleagues go to, to ensure that customers can continue to live long, healthy lives from the comfort of their own homes. This is one of the main reasons that inspired me to join care.
Reviews and credentials
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Barnes to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
Whether you require an occasional 30-minute visit, or you need several longer calls per day, our visiting care service can be with you for as long or as little as you need. Our carers will come to you at prearranged times to ensure that you get everything you need on a daily basis, whether it’s help with housework, grocery shopping, medication, preparing your meals or personal care. Our personalised care packages put you at the centre of your care journey and with your own support plan you can be sure your routines and preferences will always be respected.
Personalised Live in care services
If you’ve ever wondered about alternatives to having to leave your beloved home and moving into residential care, then why not talk to us about live-in care? Your carer will be with you at home, around the clock, so you’ll never feel vulnerable due to being alone, or having to wait until the next scheduled care visit. Your carer may be living with you, but this doesn’t mean they’ll get under your feet or compromise your lifestyle in any way. When you want time on your own or with guests, they’ll be busy undertaking household tasks for you or preparing your next meal, or instead making you a welcome cup of tea.
Better than a care agency in Barnes
We believe we’re better than a care agency because not only are we fully regulated and managed by the CQC and CIW, which many agencies aren’t, we also prioritise you and your care above all else thanks to your bespoke care package and personalised support plan. Our carers also feel valued and highly motivated working for us because they are employed by a home care company with over 30 years of experience in keeping our customers safe and cared for.
Dementia care that's made for you
Receiving a diagnosis of dementia can be upsetting and unsettling as there is no knowing exactly what the future will bring. However, one thing you can be sure of is our over 30 years of experience supporting people living with dementia to remain in the home they love, so when the time comes to think about looking into dementia care options, think of Helping Hands. Remaining in familiar surroundings can really help to reduce confusion and anxiety for someone living with dementia, so chat to us when you’d like to know more.
