Live-in care and visiting home care in Coventry
Rumoured to be the birthplace of dragon slayer and patron saint of England, Saint George, Coventry is also the place where the British car industry was founded in a disused cotton mill in 1896. But alongside its rich history and the world’s biggest collection of British made cars, motorcycles and bicycles at the Transport Museum, Coventry is also home to one of the UK’s leading home care providers – Helping Hands.
Providing individually tailored, high-quality home care in Allesley, Baginton, Bedworth, Binley, Bubbenhall, Bulkington, Coventry, Fillongley, Finham, Hinckley, Nuneaton, Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Walsgrave-on-Sowe, Wolston and the surrounding areas, the local Helping Hands team are there to provide personalised care packages built around you and your needs. With compassion and empathy at the heart of our service, our expert team will work with you to find out exactly what support you need to fit into your existing routines.
Meet Sharon Harris, our Branch Manager
“I’m excited to be overseeing the team in Coventry as well as bringing one-to-one support to people in the local community. I know the Coventry area well having attended school there and even though I moved away for a few years, I never lost touch of what was going on in the city. I came into the care industry back in 2008 and believe that with Helping Hands, I have the chance to make a positive impact to people’s lives.”

Live-in care to support you in Coventry
We understand that inviting someone new to live in your home can be a daunting thing, but Sharon and her team are here to provide guidance and support to help alleviate any worries that you may have.
Whether you live on your own or as a couple, live-in care provides you with round-the-clock support to ensure that you are safe and comfortable at home. Regardless of your requirements, our Coventry team will work closely with you to ensure that your care package provides you with the exact level of support that you need.
Here at Helping Hands, independence and stability are at the forefront of our care, which is why we will carefully select each carer to match your personality and preferences, meaning that you receive so much more than care; we’ll give you friendship. Whether you enjoy experiencing the archive of British cars at the Coventry Transport Museum, learning the history of St Mary’s Guildhall or a coffee and a cake on a Saturday afternoon, we’ll find the right carer for you.
Live-in care enables you to remain in the comfort of your own home, yet still in control of your day-to-day life. With no visiting restrictions and no set meal-times or menus, our live-in team will provide personalised and unintrusive care so that you can continue with the life you love.
Domiciliary care in Coventry
We understand the importance of retaining control of your own care, which is why Sharon and her team can provide the perfect care package for you to maintain your daily routine with minimal disruption.
Traditionally known as visiting care, domiciliary care allows you to have the freedom to have full control over the intensity and frequency of your care. With regular home visits available from 30 minutes through to several hours a day, our Coventry team can support you with any number of every day tasks, including personal care, housekeeping and clinical care, including catheter & stoma management and PEG feeding.
Specialised dementia care in Coventry
As one of the UK’s leading dementia care specialists, we understand that living with dementia can be an extremely unsettling time for you and your surrounding family, and that the complexities of the condition can often cause anxiety and uncertainty. From memory loss and confusion to helping an individual’s family understand their loved ones’ diagnosis, our Coventry team are here to provide guidance and support whenever you need it.
With 30 years’ industry experience and a range of extensive knowledge in dementia care, we understand how important it is for your loved one to be surrounded by familiarity. Our fully-trained team will support you and your loved ones while enabling you to remain comfortable and secure in your own home. We can also provide guidance to your family on how you can communicate with each other and enjoy your time together.
Elderly care to support your independence
Aging is inevitable, and we understand that although our day-to-day tasks may seem more difficult than they used to, our desire to remain independent doesn’t always change.
You may need a little help in preparing your meals throughout the day or perhaps you need a gentle reminder to take your medication each day. Nonetheless, Sharon and her team will work with you to provide a tailored care package that enables you to remain independent at home without compromising your safety.
Respite care for your short-term needs
Care needs can arise at any time, sometimes at such short notice that it seems impossible to be able to find an alternative in time. But Sharon and her team can provide respite care packages to give you the support you need, sometimes with as little as 24-hours’ notice.
Whether your regular carer needs a break or if you need intensive, short-term support to help you get back on your feet after an illness or injury, our Coventry team will ensure a seamless transition between your care, ensuring that you receive the quality care you would expect from your own carer and without upsetting your usual routine.
The need for respite care can arise for any reason and our team are here to provide help with any of the following instances:
- Hospital discharge – If you need short-term care after time in hospital to rebuild your independence
- Emergencies – When your regular carer needs to tend to an emergency
- Short breaks – Giving your carer some time to rest and recuperate without any detriment to your ongoing care
- One-off occasions – When you want to join your family to enjoy a special event, such as a wedding or birthday celebration
I would recommend Helping Hands to anyone who would like to make a difference in people’s lives and get thorough training and support.
