"I joined Helping Hands in 2019 after 18 years in financial services in the customer experience sector. I moved into the care industry as I was looking for a role with a people-centred organisation with great purpose. Helping Hands has already proved to be exactly that and this is a really exciting time for the business as we start to grow our high street presence across the UK. As Area Care Manager looking after all our new branches in the South during their set up phase, I am thoroughly enjoying recruiting the best of the best in the industry and seeing our new branches open up to deliver brilliant things for our customers and, of course, our people."

For over 30 years, Helping Hands has specialised in providing local communities with the extra support they need through visiting home care. We personalise every care plan to provide the most suitable carer for your requirements, with their level of care being as flexible as you need it to be.
Care visits have always been a fundamental part of the service we provide, and throughout the past few decades, we have accumulated a wealth of experience, an industry-leading method of training, and a plethora of exceptional members of staff across the entire country.
We as a collective are determined to ensure every single customer feels comfortable with their balance of safety and self-sufficiency, so rest assured your carer will do their utmost to understand your needs with consideration for your autonomy.
From just 30 minutes per week to more regular visits by the hour, we have countless carers with a natural propensity for compassion; with many of which possessing specialist expertise to assist with even the most complex of needs.
By working with yourself and your loved ones, we will build an idea of what your care will consist of, with ongoing assessment and development of the service we provide. Dependent on your condition, whether it be dementia, motor neurone disease, spinal injuries, mental health conditions, or even mere cases of loneliness and difficulty getting around, your carer will be available to assist however you require, no matter your affliction.
From your carer, you can generally expect assistance with your personal care and household duties, which extends to accompanying you on trips outside, moving and handling, reminders to take your medication, and specialist support for complex conditions.
The provision of care can vary to many different extents, and for those that require round-the-clock support, live-in care is our method of ensuring that you have all the assistance you need 24 hours a day, in order to live independently and reduce the responsibilities your loved ones may currently be undertaking.
It can be difficult to share your home with somebody that isn’t family, and it can be easy to assume that a live-in carer is intrusive, but we can assure you that your live-in carer is dedicated to giving you as much freedom as possible by simultaneously prioritising your safety and respecting your privacy.
We match our customers with live-in carers suited to their personality, hobbies and interests, with the objective of our service being that you receive more than just additional support overnight and throughout the day; we encourage our carers to provide a level of companionship that no other service can offer.
By living with a friend who is effective in motivating you and qualified to support your medical needs, you can enjoy being at home with an unparalleled level of comfort and pursue your routine with astonishing confidence, all the while you can feel entirely in control of how you approach each day.
Domiciliary care, put simply, is care at home. We know full well how the idea of residential care can make even the most vulnerable of people feel apprehensive. With domiciliary care, you can receive the support you need without the worry of your independence being infringed upon.
Being cared for by a fully-trained professional within the comfort of your own home allows you to utilise the flexibility of our packages by deciding on how often you need assistance, and how much support your condition requires. From weekly drop-ins to full-time care, our domiciliary care service can provide you with whatever it is you need to feel content in your independence and on top of your wellbeing.
We can help with simple check-ins to make sure you’re getting out of bed, eating and taking your medication, as well as support with your personal care, assisting your mobility and taking care of your household chores. For complex conditions, we are also able to provide clinical support for specialist tasks such as catheter management and PEG feeding.
We realise the detriment a dementia diagnosis causes for you and your family. The anxiety in the knowledge that you are certain to deteriorate, but uncertain of how or when, is unsettling, unnerving and incredibly upsetting. We’ve worked with those living with dementia throughout our entire 30-year history and consider guidance and support for those afflicted a priority.
We want to help you along every step of your journey, from the initial diagnosis, all the way to the latter stages of your condition, so that you and your family have all the advice you need to acclimatise, and all the support you need to communicate and enjoy your time together once your symptoms exacerbate.
The more we understand your needs, the better we can comfort you, which is why all of our dementia care plans are entirely personalised to your requirements with guaranteed cover from a dementia specialist.
Growing old is a blessing denied to many; nevertheless, the restrictions that come with it can be frustrating. Many of our elderly care patients are fit and healthy, but as mobility becomes more of a challenge and more things tend to slip their mind, the more assistance they need taking care of themselves and getting around.
Whether you need a hand with your chores, getting out of bed and showered, or just some company while you’re alone or on your travels, there is a Helping Hands carer available to support you with your daily tasks while preserving your independence.
If you have a condition that is likely to become more severe, we can increase the frequency or intensity of our support in line with your requirements, whenever you need.
The need for care can arise at any time, and at short notice, it can be difficult to find. Our Edgware team are available from as little as 24 hours’ notice to provide a temporary carer under urgent circumstances.
Whether your regular carer is unavailable, you’ve been discharged from hospital, or you need short-term care for an occasion, we can put a package together tailored to your requirements so that your needs are catered for and pressure is alleviated from your loved ones.
From several days of nursing care to a few weeks of housekeeping, our respite care packages are entirely tailored to you and are provided with the same high standards as our usual services.
In addition to 30 years of experience in the home care industry, our carers receive the very highest standard of training we can offer to ensure they are well-equipped to care for you, as well as developing their skills as a healthcare professional.
As industry leaders in the UK’s home care industry, we have a duty to uphold the quality of our service, as well as the quantity of it. Every carer undergoes full background checks including Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screening and is encouraged to work with kindness as the foundation of their service while keeping independence at the forefront of their consideration for each customer.
While our award-winning training covers all aspects of care, such as manual handling, health and safety, safeguarding and equality and diversity, we also enhance our carer’s attributes with regular refresher courses, all of which are fully-regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
