Helping Hands in Dunstable is a passionate home care team dedicated to offering the highest standard of assistance to vulnerable people throughout the local community. By combining our staff’s proclivity for empathy with the most comprehensive training and development – monitored and regulated by the Care Quality Commission – we nurture compassionate people committed to helping others towards becoming professional care specialists with a dedication to the ongoing improvement of their service.
Debbie and her team provide an exceptional home care service in Dunstable and throughout Bramingham, Briggington, Caddington, Ivinghoe, Leagrave, Luton, Maidenhall, Sewell and surrounding areas.
A market town in Bedfordshire, famed for its Priory Church, where King Henry VIII divorced Catherine of Aragon and instigated the establishment of the Church of England, Dunstable is popular for its scenic countryside; home to Dunstable Downs and Whipsnade Zoo, and is now one of many nationwide locations receiving the industry-leading home care service of Helping Hands.
From as little as 30 minutes per week, you or a loved one can receive visiting care to provide the extra support needed to maintain a routine and uphold independence. From help with chores and weekly check-ins to assistance for complex needs and full-time live-in care, the Dunstable region is home to fully-qualified carers prepared to provide the compassion & expertise required to inspire the wellbeing of its inhabitants, as little or often as they need.
"Hi, I’m Debbie. I am from South Africa and have lived in the UK for 10 years. I am in the most fortunate position to be surrounded with the most caring, loving and hard-working office and care team, who all go above and beyond to meet our customers’ needs. Here at Helping Hands, we like to be known as the care team that goes the extra mile to ensure the client has an experience with us, rather than just a care call. Our care is person centred, delivered with utmost dignity and respect. I am passionate about people, relationships and firmly believe that teamwork is the key to the success of our branch."
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.

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.
Choosing a care provider for yourself or a loved one can be quite a daunting prospect, but with our friendly and compassionate team in Dunstable, we can take all of the stress and anxiety away for you by providing tailored home care. There’s no need to worry about moving into a care home where you’ll be away from loved ones and have less independence; we can provide the right support for you whilst you remain living in the comfort of your own home, perhaps alongside a spouse, partner or pet.
Visiting home care from Helping Hands can start from weekly visits to help you with washing the dishes, collecting your groceries and running the vacuum round, to more regular support throughout the day and overnight, assisting you with personal care, administering medication and moving in and around your home safely. What’s more, with a small group of carers that you can build a rapport with, you’ll be able to continue with existing hobbies such as tending to your garden, visiting local beauty spots or even taking up new hobbies, with their assistance of course.
Live-in care offers additional support throughout the day and night for those living with more complex health conditions such as dementia, Parkinson’s or a spinal injury. It allows individuals to still stay at home and retain as much of their independence as possible, but with specialised support and companionship.
Choosing live-in care means that you will have a dedicated carer living with you in your home to provide 24-hour support for your physical and mental needs – whether that’s assisting with continence care, helping you get dressed or simply being there if you become anxious during the night. We’ll work with you to find a carer that is just right for you in both experience and personality, so that you can build a bond of trust with them and accept them into your home.
We are fully registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who monitor our services for their safety, effectiveness and responsiveness, as well as ensuring our carers receive the industry standard in care training. To do this, all of our new carers are required to undergo our in-house training programme, which covers personal care, manual handling, dementia, first aid and safeguarding. And to keep up to date with the latest and safest care practices, our existing carers are required to complete regular refresher courses.
We are founding members of the United Kingdom Home Care Association (UKHCA) and affiliated with the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA), who both promote the wellbeing and best practice of home care and dementia care respectively.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
