We’ve been supporting our customers to remain safely and comfortably cared for in the home they love for over 30 years, so you can trust us when we say we’re the home care specialists. Our compassionate carers will support you to live your best life at home and because we’re fully regulated by the CQC and CIW you’ll be reassured by our standards. Contact us to learn more about our exceptional home care services.
We can support you in and around Borehamwood, Barnet, Wrotham Park, Potters Bar, South Mimms, Ridge, Shenley, Radlett, Elstree, Patchett’s Green and the surrounding areas.
Borehamwood is perhaps most famous for the Elstree film and TV studios that it houses, however there was a significant history in the town long before the studios arrived.
We’re familiar with significant history at Helping Hands, as since our formation in 1989 we’ve provided visiting and live-in care to thousands of our customers, so they can remain comfortably cared for in their own homes.
“My name is Kim, and I am the Branch Manager for Helping Hands in Watford.
“I was born in London and lived there until moving to Hertfordshire. I have lived in Hertfordshire for nearly 19 years, and I have worked in the care industry for over 30 years. I am really passionate about supporting others and enjoy working with my team of carers and enabling our customers across the area to live independently within their own homes.”
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.
Over 100 branches across the UK means we're local to you
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.
Visiting care is when our compassionate carers visit you in your own home as regularly or frequently as your needs dictate. Thanks to our fully flexible packages of care, we can arrange to come to you from 30 minutes a week and support you with everything you need, such as personal care, medication, meal preparation, mobility support and housework.
Live-in care is a cost-effective alternative to going into a care home, and thanks to having one of our compassionate carers with you all day and night, it is also a great reassurance to both you and your loved ones. Your personalised support plan means your carer will have in-depth knowledge about your condition, meaning you’ll get one-to-one expert care while never having to be alone at home.
We directly employ all of our carers as we are a fully regulated private home care company, not an introductory agency who charges hidden costs such as ‘referral’ fees. You’ll always know what your bill contains because we keep our pricing structure transparent, meaning you can relax in the knowledge that you’re getting value for money care, delivered by motivated and compassionate carers.
Domiciliary care, or care at home, has no comparison to residential care as you decide when you get up and go to bed, eat your meals and every other aspect of your daily routine. Our carers will come to you on either a visiting or live-in basis and ensure that all of your preferences are followed closely, thanks to your personalised support plan that details exactly how you like things done, which will be of benefit to you emotionally as well as physically.
We’re a dementia specialist company and our carers really understand how best to support someone living with dementia and deliver their dementia care. They’ll work tirelessly to help create, preserve and reflect on memories to help you recall precious occasions and recollect important days, being beside you or your loved one every step of the way as the condition progresses. We guarantee specialist assistance that sees guidance and support available to the customers’ loved ones too, so everyone gets to live well with dementia.
When your regular carer needs to take a break or they’re not well themselves, you might find yourself in a situation needing short-term support quickly, and in an emergency we can get care to you within 24 hours as a rule. Even when there isn’t such a hurry, it’s good to know that with Helping Hands handling your respite care, it will continue without disruption thanks to your personalised support plan, which will make it feel as if your regular carer had never left.
Don’t struggle at home with everyday tasks such as vacuuming, getting in and out of the bath or making yourself regular meals, when elderly care from Helping Hands will see our compassionate and friendly carers coming to your home and ensuring you get support with every aspect of your daily routine. Whether you’re living with age-related frailties or an ongoing illness or condition, your personalised support plan will detail exactly how we can help you to live your best life at home.
We feel that our carers are the best in the industry as they’re compassionate and really want our customers to live as well as possible in their own homes. We also only select people who demonstrate this ethos of course, as we want to know that every person who works for Helping Hands is passionate about ensuring our customers get to to live their very best lives in the home they love. We train our carers well so that they’ll be able to demonstrate person-centred care from the very start and thanks to being fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales we’ll be delivering the highest standards of care to you at home.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
