A large market and university town in West Yorkshire, Huddersfield has lots of hidden gems and secrets of its past. In 1895, the town invented the sport of rugby which is commemorated in the John Smiths Stadium, along with the historic win of all four Rugby League Cups by the Huddersfield Giants in 1914. But sporting accolades aside, Huddersfield is now a home for one of the leading home care providers in the UK – Helping Hands.
Along the dedicated team in Huddersfield are here to provide person-centred support to families across Huddersfield, Holmfirth, Scammonden, Marsden, Meltham, Armitage Bridge, Flockton Moor, Mirfield and the surrounding areas.
"I am passionate about coaching and developing people to achieve their career goals and aspirations, motivating them to deliver an outstanding level of service to our customers, colleagues and carers. What gets me out of bed in the morning is knowing that today could be the day that I make a real difference to someone. To relax when not working I love nothing more than spending time with family and long walks along the Northumberland coast with my three crazy dogs."

Here at Helping Hands, we know exactly what it takes to provide high-quality care – we’ve been doing it for 30 years! We understand how important it is for you to feel safe and comfortable in your own home, that’s why we’ll get to know you and your routines to ensure that we’re providing a service that is completely focused around you.
Whether you are living alone, with your partner or with your beloved pet, we’ll ensure that you have the support you need to live your life as independently as possible. It may be that you are looking for someone to pop in and take your canine companion for a walk around Greenhead Park, or perhaps you need clinical support for a more complex condition. Whatever it is your need, we’ll work around you to ensure that you can continue to live your life entirely on your terms – just with a little help along the way.
You may find that you need more intensive support throughout the day and night, but the idea of moving into a residential home is upsetting for you. Home is where the heart is, and that’s exactly why the team provide live-in care that gives you round-the-clock support in the home you know and love.
Designed to fit entirely around you and your routines, live-in care ensures that you always have someone to call on – no matter what time of day. And with all of our carers completing award-winning training at our bespoke training facility in Warwickshire, they are fully equipped to support with anything from personal care and medication through to complex support such as PEG feeding and stroke aftercare.
We understand that acknowledging the need for care can be unnerving for you and your surrounding family. But worry not, the Huddersfield team will work closely with you to provide guidance and support to alleviate any worries that you may have. And what’s more, we’ll only be there to help out where you want us to. With you at the reigns, the control of your care is entirely in your hands.
Domiciliary care from our Huddersfield team is more than just practical support; your mental wellbeing is important to us too. If you’re experiencing feelings of loneliness and simply need a companion, then we can arrange for one of our friendly carers to pop in for a cup of tea and a chat with you. Or if football is your passion, we’ll by your side at The John Smith’s Stadium in a blue and white scarf.
As one of the leading dementia specialists in the UK, we’re proud to be an ambassador for dementia care. And with experience in the many different variants of dementia – including frontotemporal dementia, Alzheimer’s and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease – we have the knowledge and understanding of how to support you and your loved ones throughout every step of your dementia journey.
We understand the importance of feeling safe and settled when living with dementia, that’s why we’ll provide a bespoke support plan that provides consistency and continuity with your care – all within the comfort and familiarity of your own home.
As we grow older, we can often start to experience difficulty with our day-to-day life. Whether it’s a decline in our mobility or experiencing visual or hearing impairments, these difficulties can often have an impact on our confidence when going about our usual routines. But one thing that could make your life that little bit easier is a friendly carer from our Huddersfield team. With elderly care from Angela and her team, you’ll have someone there to support you both practically and emotionally – even if it’s for 30 minutes a week or more regular visits throughout the day.
If you’re looking into different care options and you’re wondering if a live-in carer is a suitable option for you, respite care is the perfect opportunity for you to test the waters and establish exactly what level of care you need. Or perhaps you have recently acquired a life-changing injury and you need some support on your road to recovery. Whatever the circumstance, respite care from the Huddersfield team ensures that you have a personalised package of care in place that is ready whenever you need it, for as long as you need it.
Respite care really is available for any situation. It may be that your loved one is getting married but you would like some extra support to attend their wedding, or you may be looking to take a break to the Yorkshire Dales for a weekend but you feel you need some help whilst you’re away from the familiarities of home. Whatever it is, our Huddersfield will work around you to provide short-term care that is entirely focused around you.
Here at Helping Hands, we’re proud to be the only home care provider to be endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care, due to our detailed training programme that we provide to all of our carers.
