Helping Hands have been established for over 30 years and in that time, we’ve supported thousands of our customers to remain in the home they love while being supported with every aspect of their daily lives. We could be doing the same for you or your loved ones and as we’re regulated by the CQC and CIW you can be fully confident in our exceptional home care service.
We can support you in and around Chislehurst, Foxbury, Elmstead, Bexleyheath, Avery Hill, Foots Cray, Ruxley, St Paul’s Cray, Petts Wood, and the surrounding areas.
Chislehurst has many interesting features, not least the Chislehurst caves. Originally used to mine flint and chalk, during World War II they were used nightly as an air-raid shelter. Over the years, live music has been played in the caves, with big names like Jimi Hendrix, the Rolling Stones, and David Bowie playing there.
While we’ve grown massively since we began in 1989, we’ve never lost sight of our original ethos at Helping Hands and with our visiting and live-in services expertly delivered by amazing carers, we could be making a difference to your life every day too.
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 160 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.
With our visiting care service, you can have the option of a 30-minute visit once a week or several longer calls throughout the day, as we’ll tailor your package of care to your personal wants and needs. Your dedicated carers will be able to undertake every aspect of your daily routine for you, whether it’s housework, personal care, meal preparation, medication, mobility or so much more.
Choosing live-in care will see one of our amazing carers living in your home with you and being there around the clock for all your care needs and companionship wants. Whether you have highly complex care needs or milder requirements, your carer will be able to support you with housework, personal care, laundry and so much more that will see you living your most independent life possible in the home you love.
We’re better than a home care agency because we have always had the highest standards of care, just as you’d expect from a private home care company. We employ our carers directly and would never insist on self-employment, meaning they are free to concentrate on your care as their number one priority, rather than worrying about completing tax returns or similar.
Domiciliary care, or care at home, is something we’ve been delivering for over 30 years, so you can imagine we are expert in it by now. We offer a comprehensive visiting and live-in service, both of which are designed especially for you depending on your care needs and requirements and are supported by your personalised support plan which will detail exactly how you like things done.
When diagnosed with dementia there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to your care, as you are still an individual and are not defined by the condition. Consequently, you need a dementia specialist home care company who understand dementia care and have over 30 years’ experience in supporting customers to live as independently as possible with dementia, in the home they love most. We can help to explain your options for care in the home you love, when the time comes.
Thanks to respite care from Helping Hands you can remain in the home you love for any type of short-term care requirements you may have, such as if your regular carer takes a break, your family are on holiday or you’re recovering from an illness or accident. Don’t go into residential care when you’re reluctant to do so, as even in an emergency we can help, getting care to you within 24 hours as a rule.
When you’re finding that household tasks are becoming more difficult than they used to, why not choose some elderly care from Helping Hands? Our amazing carers will come to your home and support you with every aspect of your daily routine including personal care, housework such as vacuuming and laundry, meal preparation, medication, and supporting you to access the community for shopping and activities if you’d like.
We believe that our carers are the best there are in the home care industry, because they go above and beyond on a daily basis to ensure that our customers get to live the best life they possibly can in the comfort of their own homes. Thanks to the expert training that we give to our carers and the personalised support plan that accompanies your care, you can be sure that they will know your condition and how best to support you at home. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales which demonstrates our commitment to the highest standards of care delivery at all times.
Our Chislehurst branch is fully regulated and accredited by the CQC and CIW.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
