Visiting home care in Highbury
For over 30 years, we have been providing care to thousands of people across the country who require additional support with their health needs, all from the comfort and familiarity of their own home. Our team in Highbury is no different; their friendly carers and manager will work with you and your family to create a personalised support plan tailored entirely for you. After all, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach at Helping Hands – we make sure that everything is led by you at a pace that you’re comfortable with, so that your care visits are adapted around your routines and preferences.
We understand that it can be a bit daunting at first to welcome new people into your home, especially if they are assisting you with washing, dressing and toileting. Our carers will take everything at your pace, enabling you to live independently, rather than doing everything for you and taking over.Request a callback Email us

Live-in care in Highbury for 24-hour support
For more complex health care needs such as Parkinson’s, strokes or dementia, live-in care can enable you to receive one-to-one, nurse-led care whilst you relax and enjoy the surroundings of your own home that you’ve become accustomed to. We’ll take the time to find the right care for both your physical and emotional needs, matching them with you based on care experience and personality. They will then move in with you in your home so that they can provide round-the-clock support to you whenever you require.
If you have clinical needs such as a tracheostomy, PEG feeding or continence care, we have a team of regional nurses who oversee all of our clinical care packages and provide specialised training for our live-in carers. Our nurses have extensive experience in the private and public nursing sector, as well as being registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
Fully trained carers in Highbury
To ensure that we employ only the very best carers, we haver a rigorous assessment and selection process. Right from the get-go, we want to know exactly what our potential carers are like as people, as we only employ those that are kind, compassionate and put others first. Once selected, they take part in mandatory training, which involves acquiring the practical and theoretical skills for manual handling, dementia, first aid, safeguarding, personal care and medication. All of our carers are required to complete regular refresher training so that they are always using the latest methods approved by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
Helping Hands is a founding member of the United Kingdom Health Care Association (UKHCA), who were created in order to share best care practice between organisations. Additionally, we are also members of the Dementia Action Alliance, who unties its members in the most up to date dementia care practices.
