Our compassionate team in Billericay are dedicated to providing the highest quality home care throughout the entire area. Fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission for the safety, efficacy and responsiveness of our service, call us today to discover how we could be caring for you or your loved ones and enabling you to remain as independent as possible within your own home.
Our Billericay branch can provide you with a compassionate and expert home care service in Billericay, Basildon, Benfleet, Wickford and the surrounding areas, and we’ll provide a person-centred and dedicated care package built around your requirements.
Boasting a historical link with the famous ‘Mayflower’ voyage as Christopher Martin, the leader of the expedition was known to have lived there, the Essex town of Billericay lies only 25 miles from London, making it an ideal commuter hub. Billericay has been occupied since the Bronze age and over the centuries has had various different occupations lay claim to its name.
History is something that Helping Hands can also boast, as we’ve been providing the highest quality visiting and live-in care since 1989, enabling thousands of our customers to remain as independent as possible within the home they love. Whether you only need a 30 minute check-in to have your lunch prepared or you need several longer calls throughout the day, our visiting care service will support you exactly as you prefer. Alternatively, for around the clock companionship in addition to our usual high standards of care, one of our carers can live in your home with you and ensure that the support you need is always within reach.
"I'm Maria, a conscientious and committed branch manager thoroughly enjoying her work at Helping Hands. The team that I work with is second to none! We have fantastic, dedicated, kind carers who go the extra mile to ensure that the care we provide to our customers is absolutely first class.
It is important to me that we work together as a team and I promote great communication as well as a collaborative approach to our care. It gives me a great deal of joy to hear that, because of our care, our customers are happy and safe in their own homes, especially when family members contact us and tell us how much their loved ones have benefitted from care.
"I was born, raised and schooled in Chelmsford. After studying, I lived and worked in London, returning to Essex 15 years ago. My knowledge of the county and particularly the south area helps me in my role working for Helping Hands."
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.

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.
Visiting care from our team in Billericay could involve a half-hour drop-in to prepare your lunch, or several hours at a time depending on your needs. Our carers can also remain with you and assist with overnight care if you are less confident when everyone else is asleep, or if you require support throughout the night. Our carers are some of the best trained in the industry and can help you’re your medication administration, mobility support, personal care, housework & laundry, meal preparation and so much more.
With live-in care from Helping Hands you get the best of both worlds. Not only do you receive the highest standards of home care from our outstanding carers but you also get continuous companionship so that you’re never on your own. Live-in care means that a carer resides in your home with you, being available around the clock to deliver care and company whenever you need it.
Helping Hands is better than an agency as you get the very best care possible from a company who is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and Care Inspectorate Wales. Traditionally, home care agencies don’t offer the same high standards of care that you’ll get from Helping Hands and worse, they don’t have to be registered, so there is no industry regulator keeping tabs on what they are doing. Unfortunately, this means that there are no rules when it comes to how they treat their customers and carers, which means that what they promise you’ll receive may not actually come to fruition. In addition to industry regulation you get highly trained carers who are directly employed by us, meaning you don’t have to worry about being their ‘employer’ and dealing with the legalities that involves. You just get the best care possible from motivated and compassionate carers who love helping their customers to live their best life possible in their own home.
When you’re living with dementia it can benefit you to remain in your own home, surrounded by personal mementoes and precious memories. This is because as the condition progresses, confusion and anxiety can increase and if you’re in unfamiliar surroundings, such as a care home, it can be even worse. Being able to stay at home, with the same carer every day can bring some stability and comfort into your days and while each day can still have its challenges, being in the place that means the most will help. Whether it’s sitting in the garden that you planted yourself, or taking a walk around your familiar neighbourhood, receiving dementia care in your own home will ensure you get the most out of every day.
If you already have a carer and they need to take a break, respite care from Helping Hands can be a great short-term solution. Alternatively, it may be that you’re being discharged from hospital and you would appreciate some help while you’re recovering; either way, respite support can be very useful while you’re getting back on your feet.
We naturally slow down as we get older and sometimes tasks that we previously took for granted can need a little extra support to complete. This is where the friendly and compassionate carers from Helping hands come in. We can provide elderly care from just 30 minutes a week, depending on how much support you require. Perhaps you are finding the stairs trickier to navigate and would like someone to vacuum and dust for you, or maybe preparing food isn’t as enjoyable as it once was. Your carer can come as often as you need, to ensure that you are getting to enjoy every day on your own terms and still stay in control of your life.
Helping Hands has been supporting people to remain in their own homes for more than 30 years and our carers are the very heart of our business. Every day they support thousands of our customers to remain in the place they love and live life to the fullest, so you’ll agree they’re some very special people. We carefully select our carers to ensure they share the Helping Hands ethos of providing the highest quality care always, and we screen them through the Disclosure and Barring Service to make sure only people who should be entering your home, are. We train our carers well and keep their skills updated so that they can apply what they learn to their customers’ care. Finally, we are fully regulated by the CQC and CIW and work with a host of industry partners to ensure our care is always second to none.
