Meet Sam, our Branch Manager
"Hello, I’m Sam and my responsibilities as a manager focus on ensuring all services provided are of a high standard, as well as making sure our carers receive their essential training. I have an NVQ Level 2 & 3 in Health & Social Care and have worked within the sector for several years, so I have the necessary skills and experience to run a successful branch.
"The most incredible part of my role is being the one able to say yes to customers - yes, we can help them, or we can support their loved ones. The happiness, and sometimes relief, I see in their faces makes our hard work worth it."

My father felt more comfortable with needing daily care after consulting with the lady from the office in Ferndown. The carer is a sweetheart. Dad is so much more relaxed and happier now.

Live-in care in Ferndown
If you need a more intense level of home care in Ferndown our carers are fully trained to provide you with it. Our live-in care services in Ferndown mean that one of our carers can be there to help you around the clock. If you have a progressive medical condition or have been recently injured and need support around the home, one of our carers can give you the extra support you need. If your medical condition requires that you take medication in the middle of the night, one of our carers can be there to remind you to take it, and help to administer it.
You can be confident in the expert knowledge of our carers. All of our local Ferndown carers have been fully trained at our very own Centre of Excellence, and have a wide knowledge of complex condition-led care. All Helping Hands carers are DBS checked and trained to help you or your loved one remain independent in their home, whilst giving you the level of live-in care that you require.
Respite care for when you need to rest
Caring for a loved one is a full-time job which can be both stressful and physically demanding. If you’re taking care of someone else, it’s important that you take a break every now and then to rest and return to your caregiving duties feeling refreshed. You are an essential part of your loved one’s life, so breaks from caregiving will be a benefit to both of you.
Short-term support from as little as one day, up to four weeks lets you have a well-deserved break, giving you time for self-care, errands, and spending time with family and friends, while knowing your loved one is being properly cared for in your absence.
Respite care can also be a great option following a personal emergency, or illness, and can be arranged at short notice to ensure that your loved one is never without the care and support they need.
Support for elderly people in Ferndown
Elderly care is needed when a health condition prevents a person from being able to complete daily tasks safely and independently, whether that’s physical, cognitive, or even emotional. This may include tasks like:
- Taking medication
The need for elderly care can also happen quickly, for instance if your loved one has an accident or is recovering from an operation.
If you start to notice your loved one is needs extra support in order to maintain their quality of life, then our dedicated carers are here to help. Our personalised care approach will give you peace of mind, from knowing that someone is checking in on your loved one and providing them with assistance whenever they need it.
Specialist dementia care
There are many different types of dementia, with each following a different course over time. As the illness progresses, your loved one may display a number of physical and behavioural changes that will require different care approaches. This can make caring for someone with dementia difficult.
The needs of someone living with dementia can be complex. All of our carers in Ferndown have been through specialist dementia training, so are able to manage any challenges the condition can bring.
There is no one-size-fits all formula when it comes to dementia care. Because needs change at different stages of the disease, each person’s situation is different. This is why the care we provide is completely unique to your loved one’s requirements and can be tailored as their needs change to ensure that they are constantly receiving the best possible care.
Visiting care for the small tasks you need help with
Domiciliary care provides all the support a person needs to stay safe and active in their own home and community. It may be required when an individual develops an illness or is involved in an accident, or any other reason that leaves a person needing a bit of extra help with their daily activities.
Our carers often become an essential part of a person’s daily routine and are able to assist with a wide range of tasks. –These can be helping with household chores, running errands and preparing meals to carrying out personal care, and help getting out of the house.
We will support in any way we can to ensure that you are able to continue living comfortably and independently in your own home.
If you or a loved one needs support with a specific condition, then our fully trained carers can provide this specialised support. All of our domiciliary carers are passionate about helping people to maintain their quality of life and independence regardless of the potential barriers they might encounter.

Our carers are also committed to ensuring that you receive the best condition-led care available, and work with local GPs to understand how best to support you.
The customers I’ve worked with have been a joy to get to know. I start every working day happy with what lies ahead.
