We have received a consistent and excellent service. Having one main carer is wonderful and the hand-overs during the changes for the carers’ holidays has worked. Thank you very much.

If you have a progressive medical condition or have been recently injured and need support around the home, one of our nurse-led carers can give you the extra support you need.

You can be confident in the expert knowledge of our carers. All of our local Hertford 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.

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

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 training team made the training so interesting, fun, and most of all, showed me that I am capable of caring for others.
