Live-in care and visiting home care in London

Our flexible live-in care services are available across North London, South London, Central London, East London, West London, all the 32 London boroughs and the City of London, as well as being nationwide. We enable people looking for caring individuals to receive the finest high-end care, to live comfortably and independently within their own homes, surrounded by friends, family pets and personal belongings, avoiding a move into a residential care home.

Working with our distinguished London customers across Kensington & Chelsea, Knightsbridge, Notting Hill, Richmond, Westminster, Camden, Greenwich, Hackney, Hammersmith, Islington, Lambeth, Lewisham and the surrounding areas, our expert and discrete local London private care staff have extensive experience with the ability to provide the care you need to an exceptional standard.

Whether you need full-time private livein care, short-term respite, convalescence, planning for your long-term care, or you simply require a single call per day, we will be able to work around your needs. Helping Hands provides care assistants and our carers can live with your loved one in their own home rather than a care home, or visit as frequently as you need, from 30 minutes through to longer “sit-in” sessions that may take most of the day or even help during the night.

Helping Hands has been providing exceptional home care throughout London since 1989 and is still proudly family-owned and run. We are regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and are committed to providing an unparalleled care service, ensuring we meet the highest possible standards of fine, quality complex care. Helping Hands live-in care packages are tailored personally to your care needs. We work with doctors, nurses and many of London’s private hospitals to deliver home care and immediate start housekeeping that meets your exact requirements.

After a careful assessment, we match you with a fully-trained care professional who will provide the care in your home, supporting you with your everyday tasks and even being on call overnight. Whether it’s helping with personal care, going to the toilet, help taking medication, housekeeping, or moving round the house, many of our carers become a lifeline to our customers, enabling them to live the way they want every day.

If you have an acquired or progressive medical condition, have been recently injured, or have simply had an operation where you may need a little short-term quality care support around the home, one of our immediate start, nurse-led 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.

Most importantly, we carefully and expertly manage the entire process for you, from start to finish so you don’t have to worry about anything!

If you’re receiving direct payments for social care through social services, we are able to accept top-ups to these payments to help your care costs. Get in touch to find out more.

When I’m with my carer and they’re helping me, I don’t really feel like I’ve got a disability…I think the biggest thing is that they just make me feel like a normal person.

Friendly, expertly trained, qualified carers in London

The idea of welcoming a new person into your home and life may seem a little daunting and unsettling at first. With a handpicked live-in care professional, matched perfectly to you, your life can stay much the same as before. We walk you through each step of the way and place up most importance on matching you with someone you feel the most comfortable with and who understands your routines, everyday tasks, likes and interests.

Before beginning their work with us, all our carers take part in an intensive training programme at our Centre of Excellence where they develop a wide knowledge of personal through to complex condition-led care. But the training does not stop there. Every Helping Hands carer takes part in ongoing training to boost their knowledge and experience across a wide range of areas, from dementia care to complex care requirements. 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.
