Crowthorne saw rapid change from a small hamlet in 1859 with the opening of Wellington College and in 1863 with Broadmoor Hospital. The railway also arrived in 1860 which was another sign of large change.
We’re used to rapid growth from small beginnings at Helping Hands, as we began in 1989 with one branch in Alcester, Warwickshire and now we’re established across England and Wales. Our visiting care service is available from 30 minutes a week and we also offer full-time live-in care to support you to live your best life possible at home.

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.
When you need extra support at home with household tasks such as laundry and vacuuming, as well as personal care, medication, meal preparation and many things in-between, you should talk to us at Helping Hands about visiting care. We can come to you from just 30 minutes a week, meaning we can support with the mildest to the most complex conditions and care needs. Our expertise has been honed over 30 years so you can be confident in our ability to care for you or your loved ones.
Helping Hands really are the home care experts, as for 30 years we’ve been offering live-in care to our customers who needed a higher level of support, or perhaps just didn’t like being in the house on their own. The benefits to live-in care are vast, including around the clock companionship and care with everything you need on a daily basis, whether housework, personal care or accompanying you to appointments, activities days out or even on holiday.
We’re better than an agency because when you have care from us you have the whole of our 30 years of experience to draw from, plus a great number of support staff as well as our dedicated carers. We value our carers highly, they’re the centre of our business and we reward them accordingly, so you’d expect that they’d be directly employed by us. We also keep our prices clear and easy to understand, meaning that you’ll never be charged for something you didn’t have, such as referral or matching fees.
Having care at home, or domiciliary care as it’s also known, is a great alternative to having to move into residential care. If you’re keen to stay in the home you love and don’t want to move out of it, our carers could come to you and carry out all the care you need, on either a visiting or live-in basis. We could undertake personal care, meal preparation, housework, laundry, medication and so much more, so talk to us today about domiciliary care from Helping Hands.
Dementia care from Helping hands will see our specialist dementia carers come to you at home and support you with every aspect of your daily needs. This includes support with medication, meal preparation, personal care, mobility, housework and so much more. When first diagnosed it can be a minefield of information to wade through, causing unnecessary stress for you and your loved ones, so instead, come to the dementia specialists and let our 30 years of dementia care experience speak for itself.
When you need temporary respite care the last thing you can want is to have to uproot and move into a care home, so why not stay at home and have professional care at home from Helping Hands? Perhaps you’re recovering after an accident, illness or surgery or your regular carer is taking a break, regardless of the circumstances we can care for you on either a live-in or visiting basis. In an emergency we can even have care in your home within 24 hours.
If you would appreciate some extra support at home, perhaps with personal care, laundry, housework, preparing meals and many other tasks, elderly care from Helping Hands may be just what you need. If you’re struggling at home, perhaps due to an illness or accident, or it might be from general age-related frailties, our carers can come to you on either a live-in or visiting basis and provide all the care you need in the comfort of your own home.
Our carers are some of the most compassionate in the industry, because they promote our customers’ dignity and independence at every opportunity and go above and beyond to support them expertly in their own homes. We train them thoroughly when they first join us, but they’ve also got to have a passion for caring; we can nurture it but we can’t supply it if it isn’t there naturally. We screen everyone through the Disclosure and Barring Service, ensuring that only people who should be are entering your home, and our full regulation by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales means you can have full confidence in our accredited service.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
