Home Care Barnsley
Our Barnsley home care team truly puts the individual at the center of their support plan, so that they feel valued, respected, and cared for in a dignified way. We place much time and effort on the training of our carers, so that they have the skills and expertise to provide tailored support that matches your needs to a T, as well as being a friendly face that you can get to know and look forward to seeing.
Your local team covers care in Barnsley, Barugh Green, Dodworth, Higham, and Worsbrough, with the aim of letting you live as independent a life as possible.
Similar to other south Yorkshire towns, Barnsley’s heritage lies within the coal mining and glass making industries of the past, all of which is showcased at Barnsley’s very own museum. Amongst it’s rich historical past, there are plenty to keep a variety of different generations occupied – from the hustle and bustle of the high street shops in the town centre to the tranquil surroundings of Monk Bretton Priory, there really is something for everyone. Adding to Barnsley’s variety of services is a brand-new branch of Helping Hands Home Care, who offer everything from dementia care to respite care to anyone in need over the age of 18 and beyond.
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.

Helping Hands are industry leaders in home care and have over 30 years of experience supporting people with a wide range of needs, including complex health conditions. Here are some of the care services being offered at our Barnsley branch.
Our Barnsley carers will take the time to get to know your loved one and match them with a dedicated carer who will suit their needs and preferences. We specialise in providing the highest standards of professional home care and our goal is to help people live well on their terms, despite any health conditions they face.
Caring for others is our speciality, and with over 30 years’ experience we really do know what it takes to provide person-centred support to anyone in need of an extra helping hand. The advantage of not being a care agency, means the ball is very much in your court – you can decide what you have support with and the visiting times that suit you when we create your support plan with you. That way, you get the very best out of your care package without feeling like you’re being dictated to or that someone is taking over.
Care at home covers a whole host of different things, starting with help with practical tasks such as shopping, preparing meals, cleaning and the laundry. If you find you need extra help with bathing and getting dressed, we can help with all elements of personal care too.
And we don’t just support you physically – we’re there to support you emotionally too. No one should ever feel like they’re alone, and we will do our utmost to make sure that you feel looked after at home with carers that you can rely on and trust.
Sometimes having someone pop in several times a day isn’t quite enough support and you may need someone with you 24 hours a day if you have particularly complex health care needs. Live-in care enables you to get the care and attention you need whenever you need it, replicating the round-the-clock support you would get in a care home but without having to leave your home and having more choice and independence for when and how you do things.
Instead of being told what time in the morning you will be woken and what you’re having for lunch, you can choose what time you get up and have whatever you fancy for lunch at a time that suits you. You may even want to get involved with preparing your meals if it’s one of your passions. Your live-in carer will be there to support you in a way that is purposeful to you, and enable you to live a comfortable life in the familiarity of your own home, rather than taking over and doing things in a way that isn’t mindful to you or your personal space.
We understand how it can be quite a lot to get used to when accepting someone new into your home, especially if they are living with you. But we’ll take the time to get to know you and what’s meaningful to you, so that we can select a carer that has experience in your care needs and who shares similar hobbies and personality traits to you. You may even find that your carer becomes more of a friend or perhaps an extended member of the family, there to support you through the good and not so good times and help you to achieve all the things you want to.
Our spirit and empathy really does come down to our wonderful private carers, who go above and beyond their duty every day. The lengths they go to to ensure that all of our customers are safe and looked after in their homes is exceptional, and part of this is down to how we select our carers before they join us. We don’t necessarily look for people with lots of previous care experience; our aim is to find those who are compassionate about looking after others and genuinely do care because everything else can be taught, but those qualities can’t.
After receiving an enhanced Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) check along with several character references, our new recruits undergo our award-winning training programme, learning the practical skills and policies that they must adhere to when out in the field. Training modules cover manual handling, dementia, personal care, first aid, safeguarding and more, with regular refresher courses taking place throughout the year for all of our staff.
Helping Hands are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who ensure we are delivering safe, effective and responsive home care, training and looking after our carers properly and have good leadership in place. As with any other reputable care provider, being monitored by the CQC means that you can have faith in the care you or a loved one is receiving as it is adhering to industry standards and is regularly inspected by the governing body for care in England.
Our Home Care Barnsley branch is fully regulated and accredited by the CQC and CIW.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
