Through the Care Quality Commission, we are dedicated to equipping our staff with the highest standard of training. When arranging care for each individual, we take an unrivalled, person-centric approach towards matching you with the best possible private carer available in your area.
Covering Barry, Bridgend, Cowbridge, Llanrumney, Rhoose, St Athan, St Mellons, St Nicholas, and the surrounding areas, Branch Manager, Amy-Jayne, and her team of expert care workers can provide you with a perfectly tailored package of care that focuses entirely around you and your needs.
As the capital of Wales, Cardiff is the cultural hub for Welsh media and commerce as well as the beloved home of Welsh rugby. With unique attractions, historic buildings and an abundance of sporting excitement, experiencing all that Cardiff has to offer can be difficult if you are in need of some extra support. With dedicated home care services from our Cardiff team, we’ll be there to give you the support you need to live your life how you want to, both at home and out in the local community.
From as little as 30-minute weekly visits to full-time live-in care, we ensure you feel as comfortable, secure, and unrestrained throughout your daily activities. Your dedicated carer will help maintain your independence with flexible support as your requirements change, providing you with a tailored measure of safety and autonomy.

The great thing about live-in care is that it enables you to maintain your independence and quality of life, even if you have complex care needs that require clinical support, and without the upheaval of moving into residential care.

We’re better than a care agency at Helping Hands, because we offer the best care possible in their own homes for all of our customers and we’ve been doing that every single day since 1989. We keep the motivation high of our amazing carers by directly employing them, which means you and they don’t have to worry about being self-employed and the legalities associated with it. We also keep our pricing structure transparent and easy to follow, with no hidden costs or referral fees to surprise you when your bill arrives. Our fully managed service is regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales which means that you can be completely confident in our ability to always deliver the highest standards of service.
Domiciliary care is the perfect solution for those that need flexible care but don’t want to leave the home that they love. With full control over the frequency and intensity of your care, everything is completely on your terms. And because the care is in your home, there are no restrictions on visiting times, no set mealtimes or menus and no daily schedules to follow, so the only person who decides what you do with each day is the person who matters most – you.
We understand that the time following a dementia diagnosis can be unsettling for all involved. With the many complexities that lie behind dementia, it can be very unnerving and confusing for you and your loved ones, especially if you don’t have access to the right support and information. With personalised dementia care from the team, we provide sensitive and dedicated support with as little disruption as possible, so you and your loved ones have the familiarity and continuity that you need to alleviate your worries in what is already a very difficult time.
As the leading dementia care specialist in the UK, we ensure that each of our care workers complete dementia-specific training to equip them with the exact skillset that is needed to support you and your loved ones. From memory loss to changes in behaviour, we’ll be there to guide you through the symptoms of your condition and give you the information, guidance and support to help you to live well with dementia.
As we reach our more senior years, we can begin to find more difficulty in the daily tasks that once came so naturally to us. Perhaps you need help with folding the laundry or popping out to do your weekly shop; nonetheless, the team will give you the support you need to feel safe and independent in your home and out in your local community.
Our aim is to help you to live your life as independently as possible, so whether you simply need support with getting washed and dressed for the day or someone to accompany you for a walk along the River Taff, we’ll be there for you.
We understand that the circumstances of your care can often change at the last minute. Whether your usual carer is tending to an emergency elsewhere or you are due to return home after a spell in hospital following an unexpected illness or injury; Amy-Jayne and her team will work with you to ensure that you have a bespoke package of care in place that is ready to start whenever you need it.
With respite care packages available from as little as one day, we can support you with any circumstance that requires a helping hand. It may be that your friend or family member is getting married and you want to join in the celebrations, or perhaps you’d like to take a day-trip down to Barry but need some support to enable you to make the most of your day. Whatever it is you need, we’ll be there for you for as long as you need us.
Here at Helping Hands, we employ all of our carers directly and complete all training in-house – so you don’t have to worry about any additional paperwork or agency fees. And regardless of their previous experience, each of our carers go through our comprehensive, nurse-led training course that ensures that they are fully equipped to provide nothing less an outstanding care.
What’s more, each of our carers receive regular training refresher courses throughout their time with us to ensure that their knowledge and skillsets are always at the best that they can be.
We’re proud to be the only home care provider endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care, and our Cardiff branch is also fully regulated by the Care Inspectorate Wales, so we always ensure that the care you receive is effective, safe and responsive.
