Visiting home care and live-in care in Ealing
This vibrant and multi-cultural borough of West London is known as the ‘Queen of the suburbs’ because it really does have some delightful areas to visit – in particular, it’s beautiful parks. Whether you fancy having a taste of some of the many cuisines on offer or prefer a stroll through the bustling Southall Market, one thing’s for sure – you’ll never be at a loss for things to do. And if you struggle to get out and about to take in the sights, sounds and smells, we have a team of Helping Hands carers who will happily assist you.
The friendly carers from our Ealing team cover support across Acton, Ealing, Greenford, Hanwell, Northolt, Perivale, Southall and the surrounding areas.
Meet Lorna, our Branch Manager
Lorna says: “I'm absolutely passionate about care and looking after the wellbeing of our customers. It’s my job to develop our team of discrete, friendly and professional carers to support customers with their needs.
“Our team here in Ealing offer a wide range of services from housekeeping, cooking, cleaning, personal care and accompanying customers to local GP or hospital appointments. Our carers are highly trained to give our customers the confidence, reassurance and compassion that they need to continue living independently in the comfort of their own homes."
Visiting care in Ealing
For over 30 years, Helping Hands have been providing care and support to thousands of people in London and continue to do so today. For those in Ealing that require someone to pop in once a week to help with tidying up or several times a day to assist with personal care and getting to the toilet, visiting care is an ideal option for care that’s delivered little and often.
Our support plans are entirely bespoke and tailored around your needs and preferences – whether that’s someone to share a cup of tea and a chat with or someone to help with complex care needs after a spinal injury or neurological condition. And if your situation changes and you require care more often, we can adapt to your requirements and be flexible around you.
So, if you are living with cerebral palsy and need help to access the local community, or your loved one lives in Ealing and you live the other side of London or the country – give us a call and we’ll be happy to visit you or your relative to discuss the different care option available.
My husband is undergoing treatment for cancer and we have found both our carers to be lovely, kind and caring. We are very happy to continue with the services.

Round-the-clock support with live-in care
For those that require more intensive support but don’t want the stress and upheaval of moving into residential care, live-in care from our fully-trained carers is a great way to receive one-to-one care whilst remaining in the comforts of your own home.
As the name suggests, a carer will come and live with you in your home and be there to assist you whenever you require. That way, you and your family can rest assured that you always have someone on hand day and night should you need them.
Live-in care is a great option for those with more complex health conditions or if you’re living with your partner and one of you needs regular care that your partner is unable to fulfil. Our experienced team will work with you to find exactly the right carer for you in both care experience and personality. So, if you’re an animal lover but also have Parkinson’s, we’ll find a carer that has experience with your condition but who will also enjoy accompanying you to Hanwell Zoo.
Specialist dementia care at home
As the leaders for dementia care, we understand what it takes to provide second-to-none dementia home care for your loved one and enabling them to remain as independent as possible at home. Keeping their surroundings, routines and carers familiar to them can often help with any confusion that may come to them from time to time, alleviating any extra strain or stress you may feel as their loved one and that they may feel when they are in their more ‘lucid’ moments.
We’ve worked extremely hard to train all of our carers and managers in dementia care, enabling them to be equipped to provide the most empathetic and dignified care to our customers. We are also members of the Dementia Action Alliance (DAA), who are committed to maintaining the latest and safest practices for dementia which we also work hard to maintain.
Elderly care for extra reassurance
If you’re worried about a older loved one who needs a bit of extra support, elderly care from the Ealing team enables them to receive care that suits them as and when they need it. One week, they might want one of our friendly carers to accompany them to the shops, whereas the next week they may need some help with the laundry and taking the bins out. Whatever they need support with, we’ll get to know them and their preferences so that they are always in complete control of the care that they receive.
Respite care for emergencies or short-term breaks
If you require care at the drop of a hat due to an emergency or change in your medical condition, respite care can be organised for you usually within 24 hours of your initial enquiry with us – sometimes sooner if you are in urgent need. We’ll arrange for a member of the team to quickly come out and assess your needs and circumstances, whilst finding the right carer to be with you imminently.
This type of care also works well if you have an event to go to or holiday that you want to take but are concerned about going alone or want to allow your family and friends to take a break from caring for you. A carer will come with you to your chosen location or event and ensure you have everything you need, prioritising your comfort and requirements above all else.
Friendly and empathetic carers in Ealing
We pride ourselves in selecting and recruiting only the most kind and caring people to join our care teams. Regardless of previous experience, it’s these qualities that we look for above all others, as it’s something that can’t be taught or studied – it’s just innately within our wonderful carers.
As well as completing thorough background checks and character references, we put our new recruits through their paces via our award-winning training that’s delivered by our in-house instructors, who have years of experience in the care industry. The modules include personal care, moving and handling, first aid, equality and diversity, mobility support and medication.
All of our customers can rest assured that they are receiving care from a fully compliant and regulated company; we are regularly inspected by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) to ensure the services we are providing are safe, responsive and effective.
I simply love caring for other people; it’s something that I find natural. I consider it to be an honour to be working with a company that gives me as much support as I need in my role.
