First mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, referred to as Addelam, Deal is a village in Kent, within the district of Dover, which has received literary citations from the likes of Samuel Pepys, Daniel Defoe, and William Cobbett. What was once the busiest port in England, is now a seaside resort; popular for its historic buildings and is also home to a team of the nation’s leading home care provider – Helping Hands.
With a team of specialists on hand to provide all levels of care with kindness as its foundation, we can ensure that anybody in the Deal region who requires additional support can be catered for. From hourly visiting care to around-the-clock live-in care, our carers are available to assist you, no matter your requirements; no matter your condition.
"I joined the care industry because I wanted to have a career where I felt that I would make a real difference to people's day to day lives. I genuinely believe that the service we provide is the best in the area. We have handpicked carers who share the ethos of the company and who fit in well with our customers & existing team members. My carers go above and beyond for their customers and treat them with the utmost dignity and respect.
"My responsibilities as a branch manager include; overseeing the day to day running of the branch, recruiting new carers and making sure that the compliance is kept on top of to ensure the service is safe and well run."

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.
As the industry leaders in home care, we understand the complexities and worries that comes with thinking about home care for yourself or a loved one. But our friendly and reassuring team in Deal are here to relieve any anxieties about allowing someone you don’t know come into your home and provide your care. They’ll go through all aspects of your support plan with you before your care commences, making sure that all of your needs are taken care of, both physically and emotionally.
With visiting home care, we can offer calls from as little as 30 minutes per week to begin with, which may be useful if you just require support little and often with the housework or getting to and from appointments. As time goes on and you become more comfortable and used to your carers, you may wish to extend the amount of care you receive, particularly if you’re frail or struggle to do things like you used to. We can be with you for several hours if necessary, providing morning, afternoon or evening calls to help with personal care, getting in and out of bed safely and support with mobilising in and around your home.
If you have complex care needs such as advanced dementia or a spinal injury, you may require more regular support so that there is always someone on hand to assist you. Live-in care is the ideal solution for this, as a carer will live with you in your home to provide a constant source of support and reassurance. They’ll get to know you in detail – finding out what time you like to get up in the morning, how many sugars you like in your tea (if any!) and what activities you enjoy doing. That way, your carer becomes more like a trusted friend there to help you, rather than a carer.
If you or a loved one are worried about moving into a care home, live-in care is the direct alternative to this. Instead of having the upheaval and stress of moving out of your beloved home and leaving a partner, spouse or pets behind, you can stay living in the comfort and peacefulness of your own home, surrounded by familiar possessions, smells and photographs. We find that live-in home care is the preferred option for many, as it allows you to choose what you do and when you do it, being close to friends and family and living in the home you have known and loved for years and years.
To ensure we select the very best carers to join our team in Deal, our rigorous recruitment process begins with an in-depth interview and character references. This is because we only choose to employ those who are genuinely kind, caring and compassionate, putting others first and doing the best by them. Everything else that our carers need can be provided by our local care teams and taught as part of their induction and training process, which involves modules on dementia, first aid, safeguarding and manual handling.
As well as being a founding member of the United Kingdom Health Care Association (UKHCA), we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This strict monitoring process covers our care services and ensures they are safe, effective, responsive and well-led, thus giving you peace of mind that your care is being delivered by an industry-approved provider.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
