Nestled in the historical city of Chichester, the passionate team of Helping Hands private carers are committed to providing person-centred care to families across Chichester, Bognor Regis, Selsey, Charlton, Midhurst, Billingshurst and the surrounding areas.
Our Chichester branch were successfully awarded the Regional Branch of the Year Award at the Helping Hands Annual Awards Ceremony 2018, beating 21 other branches to the coveted title.
"Hi, I’m Lisa. I am a very enthusiastic, passionate and caring person, and I am very proud to be the Branch Manager for Helping Hands Chichester. I am so lucky to lead such a positive and experienced team, and it’s a pleasure to go out and meet with our existing and potential customers."
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.
We understand that making the decision to arrange for care for you or your loved one can be a difficult time for all involved, but with guidance and support from our Chichester team, we’re here to alleviate your worries and guide you through every step of your journey with care. We’ll arrange to meet with you at a time and a place that suits you and guide you through the different care options that are available to you. And because we specialise in person-centred care, we’ll get to know you and your preferences so that we can ensure that your care package is completely unique to you.
So, whether you are in your elderly years and need some support with your personal care, or you are living with a progressive condition and you would like more intensive support as your symptoms progress – we’ll work with you to build a bespoke package of care that is centred entirely around you.
Whether you are living alone, with your partner or with your beloved pet, live-in care enables you to have a constant source of reassurance throughout the day and night, so you know that you always have someone to call on when you need it. Whether you need continence care throughout the night or support with going out and about into your local community, a live-in carer enables you to have the full-time support of residential care without the added stress of giving up the home that you know and love.
And whilst our care packages are designed to suit your daily routine, it’s not just the practical support that we help with – your emotional wellbeing is important to us too. If history is your passion and you like to explore the stories of Chichester’s past, or you would just like somebody to help you walk your canine companion around Priory Park – the team are here to support you in any way you need.

When you choose care at home from Helping Hands you get a fully managed service that means all you have to focus on is living your best life in the home you love. You won’t have to think about employing or managing your carer and making sure they pay their appropriate national contributions because we take care of all of that for you. Some care agencies will charge you hidden fees for ‘referring’ a carer to you or for bringing about the ‘introduction’, but that’s all part of our exemplary service, meaning you won’t have to worry about unusual charges when your bill arrives. We keep our costs and our service transparent because you deserve to know that you’re being taken care of expertly and that your care is being managed by high quality professionals across England and Wales, such as those in our Chichester branch.
Domiciliary care from our Chichester team gives you control over the support you receive without any detriment to your existing routines. Whether you need support with getting dressed, continence care, using mobility aids or taking your medication, Bev and her team will follow your lead and provide the care that you need to feel safe and independent in the home you know and love.
The great thing about domiciliary care is that there are many options for you to choose from when it comes to finding the right care for you, but most importantly we’re here to relieve any stress or anxiety that you may be facing. With you at the heart of our service, we’ll do everything we can to provide the care that you need to feel comfortable and supported.
We understand how unsettling it can be in the time following a dementia diagnosis, both for you and your loved ones. The team are fully-trained and experienced in working with families that have been affected by the condition, and they understand the sensitive approach that is needed to settle any anxieties and provide the best level of dementia care.
Whether you are having troubles with memory loss, struggling with your speech or experiencing episodes of unsettling behaviours, we’ll work closely with you and your loved ones to put measures in place that allow you to feel as safe and comfortable as possible in the place you know best.
Whether you are living alone and having difficulty with going about your daily routine, or you are living with your partner and would like some help to alleviate the pressures of supporting each other, elderly care from our Chichester team is the ideal solution to give you the care you need with no compromise to your independence.
If you love spending time in the garden and are struggling to dead-head the flowers, or you enjoy a day out at Goodwood Motor Circuit but you don’t feel confident going on your own, the team will tailor your support that caters for all your needs – whether that is practical support around the house or helping you to enjoy the things you love to do.
Emergencies can arise at any given time, and more often than not they are entirely beyond our control. Regardless of the circumstances, we believe that you should never have to forego your care needs. So, if you find yourself in the position where you’re in need of some last-minute support, we can swiftly arrange for a package of respite care to be put in place – often within 24 hours of your initial enquiry.
Whether you are looking to take a trip down to the seaside but you would like some support whilst you’re away from home, or you are due to return home after a spell in hospital but you would like a helping hand to get you back on your feet, the team will work with you to provide a seamless support that takes your needs and routines into account.
Helping Hands was founded by Mary Lee in 1989, and has since been committed to providing the best level of care to thousands of individuals throughout England and Wales. And what’s more, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure that we are always providing a safe, responsive and effective service that always adheres to the latest industry standards.
Following a stringent recruitment process, each of our carers are required to complete a comprehensive in-house training programme that covers modules such as moving and handling, medication administration, personal care and safeguarding, so that they are fully equipped to provide only the best level of care. Throughout their time with us, our carers are also required to complete regular refresher training courses to ensure that their skills and expertise are always at the best that they can be. And thanks to the commitment of our amazing carers, support staff and management teams, we are proud to be the only home care provider to be endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care.
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Chichester to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
