When you choose care at home you want to be sure that the company you choose is going to give you exemplary care in your own home. With more than 30 years of experience delivering care, Helping Hands truly are the home care experts; fully regulated by the CQC and CIW and with the most compassionate carers in the industry, why not talk to our friendly customer care team today and discover how we could be supporting you or your loved ones?
We can support you in Ilfracombe and the surrounding areas, including Chambercombe, Hele Bay, Slade, Two Potts, Mullacott, Trimstone, Cheglinch, Dean Cross, West Down and nearby.
Ilfracombe has its beginnings in the Iron Age, when the dominant Hillsborough (formerly Hele’s Barrow) hill was settled upon. Ilfracombe has a strong artistic reputation, with an annual arts festival and several art galleries; in addition, many famous thespians, painters and literary figures have at one time or another lived in the town.
Whether you’re looking for visiting care from just 30 minutes a week or you’d prefer around the clock support with live-in care, our compassionate carers will support you to remain in the home you love while living as independently as possible. Your routines and preferences will always be at the centre of your bespoke support plan, which has the flexibility to change whenever your needs dictate it.
For over 30 years, we've been supporting people with care, nurse-supported care and companionship across England and Wales. As industry-leaders in home care, we know what it takes to provide the right level of care so that you can retain your independence in the comfort of your beloved home.
Over 160 branches across the UK means we're local to you
We are not an agency - we employ every carer directly
Get to know your carer before care starts
Family-run and experts in home care since 1989
Fully flexible care packages as your needs change
Flexible care provided in your own home with a fully qualified carer. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes up to several hourly or overnight calls throughout the week.
One-to-one support from a fully qualified care that lives with you. Full-time support so you can stay at home where you feel most comfortable.
When you choose live-in care from Helping Hands you don’t just receive the benefit of our three decades of home care experience; you also get the support of a compassionate and professional carer who will care for you to the highest quality while you remain in your own home. Whether you’d appreciate support with personal care, meal preparation, mobility, housework or a variety of other tasks, our carers will regularly go above and beyond to ensure you live your very best life possible.
A care agency is very different to a private home care company and you will notice the difference straight away if you choose care from Helping Hands. Care agencies often don’t employ their carers directly, they expect them to be self-employed and deal with the associated legalities themselves, which can only take up their time and mean they are less focussed on the most important thing – your care. We aren’t and never have been a care agency, so talk to us today about our expert care delivery.
When you need emergency care it can be a very stressful and fraught time. Whether it’s because you’re being faced with an unexpected hospital discharge or your carer has to leave suddenly, either you or your loved ones will be calling various companies, trying to discover who has capacity to support you at home, with no guarantees of their suitability. Helping Hands’ friendly Ilfracombe team will be able to put your worries to rest, as we have over 30 years of experience supporting our customers to live their very best life in the comfort of their own home.
Knowing that you’re receiving care from a private care company reassures you that you’re in receipt of the very best care possible from a company who will always safeguard your wellbeing and promote your independence. Helping Hands have been a private care company since our inception in 1989, and we continue to demonstrate the very highest standards possible when delivering care to our thousands of customers. Whether you are in receipt of visiting or live-in care, our compassionate carers deliver our bespoke care packages with enthusiasm and professionalism, meaning you get to live your best life possible in the home you love.
Whether you find it impossible to sleep at night and would welcome some companionship while the rest of your household are asleep, or perhaps you have complex care needs that mean you require support around the clock, our amazing carers can deliver your bespoke package of overnight care for you, regardless of the hour. You may prefer visiting care where your carer will come to you just for the night, or perhaps you’d appreciate a full-time, live-in carer, but however we deliver your care, you’ll find your constant support makes such a difference to your life and you’ll quickly consider your carer a welcome friend.
We train our carers thoroughly, because we want them to be able to support you with every aspect of your condition, whether it’s complex or less grave. We look after our carers because they really are the heart of our business, meaning that we carefully recruit and select them locally and ensure they receive opportunities for updating their skills through ongoing development. Our industry-leading care focusses on promoting your dignity and independence at all times, so you can have the highest levels of confidence in our expert service. In addition, we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission, which demonstrates our commitment to consistently delivering the very highest standards.
Our Ilfracombe branch is fully regulated and accredited by the CQC and CIW.
