With visiting care starting from as little as 30 minutes to several calls throughout the day, you can rest assured that any care need can be catered for. So, whether you need assistance with getting to appointments, gentle prompts to take your medication, or even someone to take you out for the afternoon to the garden centre in Syon Park – we’re here to help.
To put your mind at ease, the team will come and visit you in your home to chat through the different things you might need support with and the best way that we can help you.

And if you decide that you need additional visits, we can alter your support plan to reflect these changes.
All of the staff are really kind and very capable – the carers make the experience personal and individual.

Domiciliary care that gives you back your independence
Deciding that you might need an extra pair of hands around the house or to help you get dressed can be quite a difficult thing to admit, particularly if you’re used to doing everything for yourself without relying upon others. With domiciliary care, our Brentford team will take the lead from you and step in where you need us to, whilst maintaining your privacy and dignity.
It might just be that you initially need support for a couple of hours per week with tidying the house and doing the vacuuming. Once you get used to your carers, you may feel more comfortable in increasing your care visits to assist you with personal care and taking your medication. We can alter your care plan at any time to suit you, so that you are always fully supported but can retain your independence.
Specialist dementia care and nurse-led support
A diagnosis of dementia can be quite an unsettling and anxious time for the individual and their family too. But with specialist dementia care from the Brentford team, we’ll ensure that your worries are listened to and solutions are found.
Whether you have Pick’s disease, vascular dementia or Alzheimer’s, we’ll get to know you, your care needs and your hobbies from both now and when you were younger. That way, we can support you if you start to relive your youth and live with you in your ‘reality’
Elderly care for extra reassurance
You may start to notice that a friend, relative or parent may need extra support throughout the week, but you are unable to provide this due to work or family commitments. With elderly care, we can pop in and check on your loved one in an unintrusive way to make sure they have everything they need.
Even if it’s just having a cup of tea and a chat with them, you can rest assured that we’ll take care of them so that you no longer have to worry about their wellbeing.
Respite care for emergencies
When situations change unexpectedly, it can be hard to know what to do. A fall or a family emergency are distressing moments at the best of times. Add in the emotional stress of finding care quickly, and the situation can be overwhelming.
We can arrange for respite care to start quickly, putting yours and your family’s minds at ease. We can even provide a temporary respite carer to offer support should you need urgent live-in support after a last-minute hospital discharge or after a sudden emergency. We’ll ensure you remain happy, safe and comfortable without disrupting your normal routine.
Trained carers in Brentford
Our carers are truly special people. Though they all come from different backgrounds and have varying levels of experience, each and every one of them has care in their hearts.
In order for us to provide the highest standard of care, our carers take part in a detailed training programme before starting their work with us, regardless of their previous experience. This includes dementia care, manual handling, first aid, safeguarding and medication. Each one of them also goes through a series of strict background checks before joining our team.
As a CQC-regulated provider, you can be assured that our carers will deliver the outstanding care that you would expect and, because they are directly employed by us, they will receive our continuing support too.
Helping Hands gave me a chance, which I’m so grateful for. It definitely touches you when you’ve made someone else’s life a little better.
