Bracknell was designated a New Town after the Second World War, however it has an impressive history stretching back to 942AD when it’s mentioned in a charter as Braccan heal. With plenty of green spaces and old buildings to visit, Bracknell has plenty to offer those seeking a historic day out, which is why a homecare company with an impressive history of its own can also now be found there. Helping Hands was founded in 1989 and since then we have made it our mission to provide only the very highest standards of visiting and live-in care to people in their own homes.

Carer to match your needs, personality and interests
My responsibilities encompass a wide spectrum of tasks, including assessing clients' needs, creating tailored care plans, and coordinating a team of caregivers. They liaise with healthcare professionals, families, and clients to guarantee that care standards meet regulatory guidelines and personal preferences. Managing budgets, monitoring service quality, and maintaining meticulous records are also key aspects of their role. They must stay updated on healthcare regulations, train staff, and implement safety measures. Ultimately, they provide compassionate leadership to deliver high-quality, person-centered care in a home environment. I joined CARE driven by passion for empathy, compassion, and a deep-seated need to provide care to those in need. My journey in healthcare is a testament to my genuine love for caring for people. Every day, I am inspired by the opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of individuals and communities. CARE allows me to channel this passion into meaningful actions, creating a world where kindness and support are readily available to those facing adversity. With a heart full of empathy, I am committed to embodying the values of CARE, as together, we strive to create a more compassionate and caring society.
Our services are designed to empower individuals to maintain their independence, right within the comfort and safety of their own homes. This mission not only aligns with CQC standards but also reflects my unwavering commitment to promoting a caring, nurturing, and secure environment for all."
I'm family-oriented, who cherishes quality time with loved ones. Socialising and film-watching are my passions, creating memorable moments with family and friends.

Reviews and credentials
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Bracknell to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
Our dedicated carers will be a welcome friendly face every day that you have home care, coming to your home at prearranged times to suit you. You may require help at crucial times of the day such as mealtimes or getting in and out of bed, or perhaps you’d prefer some support with personal care or housework? Our visiting carers are invaluable when it comes to managing at home and they can also care for you outside of it, taking you to appointments, activities, or days out.
Live-in care to support you
When a carer lives in your home with you around the clock, you develop a special relationship. You and your carer will not only become friends but you’ll be able to predict how the other is feeling, and your tactful carer will know when you’re in the mood to chat or if you’d rather have some peace and quiet. They will be able to undertake all your care for you, such as medication administration, meal preparation and personal care, yet will also be a constant source of reassurance for you and your loved ones, knowing you’re not in the house on your own. With live-in care from Helping Hands you truly get the best of everything.
Better than a care agency in Bracknell
Helping Hands is proud to be a home care company rather than an agency. Why? Because it means we can give our customers the best care possible in their own homes without burdening them with everything a traditional agency brings. Care agencies often expect the customer themselves to ‘employ’ their carer, meaning you have the responsibility for organising the subsequent legalities, or worse, the carer is expected to do it themselves when their only focus should be on you. We directly employ all of our carers as we are a fully regulated and managed service, so if you want you and your carer to be focussing on the priorities of your care, contact us to learn more today.
Dementia care in Bracknell
Dementia is an umbrella term, encompassing over 100 different types of the disease, so when you’re looking for dementia care you want a specialist company who always treats their customers as individuals. We’ve been supporting people living with dementia to remain in the home they love for more than 30 years, helping to reduce confusion and anxiety by remaining in familiar surroundings, close to loved ones and precious memories.
Respite care for short-term support
When the unforeseen happens, such as an unexpected hospital discharge or a carer becoming ill, you may need short-term care, and quickly. Respite care is also suitable when your regular carer just needs to take a break, so if you need support until they return, we can help. Respite care traditionally conjures up images of having to go into residential care but that’s never been the case with Helping Hands; we come to you and provide all the care you need, in the place you love most, your own home.
Elderly care when you need a little extra support
As we age, we all find that tasks take a little longer than they used to, but if you’re finding day-to-day life more difficult than you’d like, why not talk to us about elderly care? We can support you with things like housework, laundry, medication and your mobility, or the more intimate needs such as personal care, dressing and helping you in and out of bed. You may appreciate a home-cooked meal or some dusting or light gardening; no matter what you require to make your day go better, we can be there for you.
Fully-trained carers in Bracknell
Helping Hands are industry leaders in home care because we put our customers and carers at the centre of everything we do. Our carers are the very heart of our business because we know what a difference they make, every single day. Because of this, we are very selective about who joins us, and we select only the best people who share our ethos for individualised, high quality care. We train our carers very well to make sure they are ready for many eventualities and keep their learning current through continuous development opportunities. This, teamed with being fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, really does put us head and shoulders above other homecare providers. Please see our accreditations section to learn more about our awards and accolades.
