Farnborough is an historic town which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. It has a strong association with aviation, being the home of the Royal Aircrafts Establishment, Farnborough Air show and the Air Accidents Investigation Branch. No stranger to history either is Helping Hands, and with over 30 years of experience already under our belt, it’s little surprise we have a presence in Farnborough.
We offer home care on either a visiting care or a live-in care basis; the difference being that your carer will either visit you regularly at prearranged times and carry out all your care requirements, or they can live in your home with you around the clock. This is where live-in care can have a distinct advantage as not only do you get the very highest standards of care as you do with our visiting service, but you get a companion in your house who can be as obvious or as discreet as you wish. This means that you and your loved ones get the reassurance of you never being home alone, yet you can have as much peace and solitude as you prefer, while your carer is busy carrying out household tasks.

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 is so called because it involves our dedicated carers coming to your home at regular prearranged times to care for you. You may require no more than a 30-minute visit once a week for some companionship, or you may have a more complex condition that means you need several visits a day, possibly from more than one carer. Regardless of your circumstances, we can support you with whatever levels of care you require, including personal care, mobility support, medication administration, housework, laundry, meal preparation and so much more. They will also be able to escort you to community activities and appointments if you enjoy being sociable, or take you out shopping when you feel the need for retail therapy, so call us today to discover what a difference our carers could make to your life.
Live-in care is exactly as it suggests; one of our compassionate carers will live in your home with you and be available to care for your needs around the clock. Just because they’re there though doesn’t mean you’ll feel like your home has been taken over; our carers are as discreet as you need them to be and certainly won’t get under your feet. This means you still get time to yourself when you want it and can be only as sociable as you feel like being on any given day.
Helping Hands is not a home care agency; we directly employ all of our carers and staff meaning that they get to concentrate on the most important job of caring for you, rather than worrying about employment paperwork. We ensure your carers references and DBS are clear which means they are only allowed to come into your home with all the correct clearances in place. This level of fully managed support from us to our carers means they are highly motivated and feel especially valued in their role. Not being an agency means you also don’t have to pay us referral fees and other costs that agencies may demand, so you get better value care as a result.
Being diagnosed with dementia can be a time of great anxiety for the person and their loved ones and while care may not be needed immediately, it’s understandable that thoughts will often turn to the future. Being cared for at home when you’re living with dementia is often the best situation, because being in familiar surroundings with precious pets and objects around you can help to reduce confusion and anxiety levels. Helping Hands are highly experienced in dementia care so why not call our friendly team in Farnborough to learn more?
Respite care can be incredibly helpful when your regular carer is suddenly unavailable, perhaps through illness or accident. It can also be an ideal short-term solution when you’re faced with a hospital discharge you weren’t expecting quite so quickly, for yourself or a loved one. Respite care can be billed by the day in the case of very short-term care meaning you get great value too, and when you need care in an emergency, we can usually be in your home in 24 hours or less.
We all need some extra support as we get older and with elderly care from the Farnborough team your helpful carer will tackle all those tasks that you are finding a little tricky. This might be vacuuming, preparing meals or personal care, but regardless of how we can help, you’ll be really glad you called us.
We believe our carers are the best in the industry, because we only select people who share our ethos for delivering the highest quality, person-centred care. We train our carers thoroughly so that you and your loved ones can be confident in their ability to be able to support you, regardless of the condition you’re living with. We even offer complex care training, delivered by our clinical nursing team, meaning that we will be with you every step of the way, even through your last days at home. We are a founding member of the UK Home Care Association and we are fully accredited by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
