At Helping Hands, we’ve been supporting our customers to live their best life possible while remaining in the home they love, for over 30 years. Thanks to the dedication of our incredible carers, and the fact that we’re fully regulated by the CQC and CIW, you can have complete confidence in our excellent standards of home care, so why not call us today and find out more?
We can support you in and around Exmouth, Sandy Bay, Withycombe, Raleigh, Hulham, Sowden, Lympstone, Woodmanton, Budleigh Salterton, Knowle and the surrounding areas.
Exmouth became a fashionable destination for the wealthy in the 18th century and was renowned as somewhere they could recover their health, thanks to the views and medicinal salt waters. The town’s history goes back much further though as in 1970.
Helping Hands has a strong history of our own and although it’s only 30 years long so far, we’ve achieved great things in that time, thanks to our visiting and live-in care services delivered by our amazing carers.
"Hi, I am Katie, the Branch Manager for Exeter and the surrounding areas. It is my responsibility to ensure the smooth running of the branch so that we are running a safe and caring service for our customers and our care staff.
"I really enjoy my role at Helping Hands and I am passionate about providing a high standard of care and enabling individuals to continue living independently and comfortably in their own homes.
"We have a fantastic team of carers who show real pride in their roles, and it is a pleasure to be part of that team and share in their enthusiasm and commitment."
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.
Over 100 branches across the UK means we're local to you
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.
Visiting care sees our incredible carers coming to you and supporting you with every aspect of your daily life, such as personal care, medication, mobility, meal preparation, housework, laundry and so much more and with visits starting from just 30 minutes a week there’s no doubt we’ll be able to design your bespoke package of care. We’ll promote your independence at all times so that you’re always in control of your care, meaning you get to live your best life possible in the home you love.
When you have live-in care from Helping Hands your dedicated carer lives in your home with you, meaning you get around the clock support and companionship when you need it. Don’t think your home won’t feel like your own anymore though, as your discreet carer knows when you’d rather be on your own or left to enjoy some time with family and friends, which is when they can carry out household tasks for you instead.
We’re proud of being a private home care company rather than an agency, and that will never change. Being the company we are, means we can directly employ all of our carers – we’d never ask them to become self-employed like some agencies do, as that would switch their focus from expertly caring for you to worrying about paperwork and accounting deadlines.
When you choose domiciliary care, or care at home as it is also known, you will have our compassionate carers coming to support you, in either a visiting or live-in capacity. With visits starting from just 30 minutes per week and going up to a frequency and duration that suits you, we really can offer a totally flexible and personalised package of support that will be designed especially for your needs.
Living with dementia doesn’t mean you’ll need care right away; it may be some way along your dementia journey before you need professional support. Even so, it’s important to have those conversations with loved ones, however difficult it may be, as you’ll want your wishes known for a time when dementia care may be necessary. Thanks to our 30 years of supporting customers living with dementia in their own homes, we really are a dementia specialist, so you can trust us to provide the highest standards of care if you ever need us.
Respite care at home can be preferable to having to stay in residential accommodation, as you get to remain in the home you love while having the highest levels of care continuity, thanks to your personalised support plan and bespoke care package. Whether your regular carer needs a break or you’re recovering from a hospital stay, you’ll benefit from our compassionate carers’ presence and support, and even in an emergency situation we can get care to you within 24 hours.
With elderly care from Helping Hands, we can help you to live the best life you can while getting to remain in the home you love. If you’re finding everyday tasks more of a struggle lately, whether due to age-related frailties or an existing condition, our compassionate carers can help you to live as independently as possible with personal care, housework, mobility, medication, meal preparation, laundry and so much more.
We value our carers so highly because they go above and beyond every single day of the year to support our customers with their care needs in the comfort of their own homes. Thanks to their tireless dedication, our customers get to remain as independent as possible while living the best life they can in the home they want to remain in. This is why we invest in such detailed training for our carers when they join us and encourage them to develop their skills at every opportunity. Thanks to our full regulation by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you can be sure of our exemplary standards of care at all times.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
