Visiting care to suit your exact needs
The Bristol team can provide you with a visiting care plan to suit your exact needs, whether you are looking for support once a week or several times a day.

Helping Hands really do what they say on the tin. They allow me to live my life the best I can, which means I can really do my thing!

Live-in care for total reassurance
Live-in care is a fantastic option if you are needing a higher level of support or more continual support.
It provides an alternative to residential care which allows you to stay in the comfort of your own home and maintain a high quality of life.
Staying in your own home helps maintain familiarity, independence and prevents any disruption which can often be upsetting.
Every single live-in care package is tailored to your exact needs and requirements. We take the time to find out about the support you need, as well as who you are as a person to make sure we find a carer that is well suited to you.
Respite care in and around Bristol
If your needs are not ongoing, the Bristol branch can provide you with support for as little as one day or up to 4 weeks.
If your circumstances change rapidly due to unforeseen circumstances we can get care in to place within 24-48 hours.
Respite care can be a great source of support for:
- Illness – If you are under the weather for a short spell and need support whilst you get back on your feet.
- Hospital discharge – Re-enablement packages are a great way to support you temporarily while you are recovering from a stay in hospital and your needs are not ongoing
- Holidays – Appropriate support whilst you’re away on holiday, or if a loved one who is staying at home will need some care whilst you are away.
- Occasions – Family occasions can be difficult if you are unwell, or your mobility is limited. You could have a carer for one day who can support you with transport, mobilising and any other support you may need throughout the course of a day.
When you have done something for a customer, or they have achieved something due to your support and seeing the smile on their face is the most amazing feeling

Specialist dementia care in Bristol
A key part of dementia care is providing continuity, stability and familiarity to prevent disruption and any unnecessary upset.
Having support at home for your relative or loved one is a great way to maintain routine and independence for as long as possible.
We know that dementia affects people in different ways, so we tailor every single care package to suit your exact needs and requirements.
All of our carers go through specific dementia training meaning that they are able to manage any difficulties that the condition may bring, giving you total peace of mind that your loved one is receiving the care they need.

Clinical care for your specific condition
Some complex conditions can require specific care, so we will tailor your package of care to suit exactly what you need.
Our team of clinical nurse specialists work alongside our Bristol team and are onside to support with the set-up of any packages that require complex care.
The clinical team have wide-ranging knowledge and experience in providing care for those with higher-level needs. They can support you with PEG feeding, tracheostomy care and toileting care and lots more.
If you require specific, complex support, your carers will be trained in the exact support you need, ensuring bespoke care that provides precisely what you are looking for.
Funding from your local authority
Depending on your situation you could be entitled to financial support from your local authority in and around Bristol.
Generally, financial support is means tested so it is best to contact your social services team directly and they will be able to let you know what you are entitled to. It could be that you are required to privately fund your care.
If you are entitled to funding from your local authority you can request to have the money paid directly in to your own bank account.
This is called ‘direct payments’ and gives you the freedom to manage your own finances.
The Bristol team will gladly discuss how they accept direct payments, and what you need to do.
Fully trained carers local to you
All of our carers in Bristol are trained in-house and directly employed by Helping Hands.
Before becoming a carer they are fully vetted, undergoing an enhanced DBS check and several reference checks.
Training and ongoing support is provided for our carers at regular intervals to ensure they are always able to deliver the best care and feel confident in doing so.
Katherine and the management team in Bristol are always on hand to provide support for our carers should they ever need it, or for you to contact if you have a query.
We have an out of hours service which is available 24/7 should a carer or customer ever have an issue that they need addressing outside of office hours.
Our visiting care service in Bristol is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), ensuring that we are providing the highest level of care possible.
