Live-in care and visiting home care in Kensington & Chelsea
From their branch in the heart of Paddington, our dedicated team of carers support families living in Kensington, Westminster, Chelsea, Ladbrook Grove, Hammersmith, St Johns Wood, Shepherds Bush and the surrounding areas.
The care we provide is completely unique to your requirements. From helping with getting ready in the morning, to more extensive and advanced care needs, our carers and manager Courtney are here for you.
Our services have led to us being named as an approved care provider in Age UK’s Business Directory for London, and we also provide live-in care, respite support, and housekeeping services across other areas of London too.
Meet Courtney, our Branch Manager
Courtney has been working in care for several years and has “an amazing team of compassionate carers who all share my passion and commitment to providing home care. I am very proud to be a part of a company who is passionate about the care they provide."
“Previously I was Deputy Care Manager for a care agency in London,” Courtney adds. “The time spent fulfilling this role and the experience I have gained means I now feel that I am ready to drive a branch forward in my own right. I am therefore both excited and determined to make the Kensington & Chelsea branch a success.”
Outside of care, Courtney states that one of her greatest achievements is her Bachelor’s degree in Business Management & Social Policy, and first joined Helping Hands because she wanted to make a difference in her community. She is excited to continue building her team of carers and helping the residents of Kensington & Chelsea.
Visiting home care built to suit you
Our team of compassionate carers are well-trained in all aspects of delivering outstanding care. Home care visits are designed to fit in around your lifestyle, routines and requirements, even if you only need one short visit a week.
Whether you’re looking at support for yourself or someone close to you, visiting care enables you to have the right care on terms in the place you feel most comfortable; your home. Our Kensington & Chelsea carers can help with all of the following and much more:
- Medication management – ensuring you have the correct mediation at the right time and making sure you’re safe when swallowing.
- Mobility support – helping with Zimmer frames and other mobility aids so you can get out and about
- Personal care – assisting with bathing and dressing, as well as tending to oral care shaving, and other areas of personal hygiene
Round-the-clock support in your own home
As conditions deteriorate, you might find that you or a loved one needs a higher level of support. Live-in care covers all of the same areas as visiting care, only your carer will move into your home with you to assist you 24 hours a day.
This means that you can have the right level of care without having to go through the upheaval of moving into residential care or a hospice.
Our live-in carers are handpicked based their experience and according to your needs. From ensuring your safety at all times and using specialist equipment, to taking you out for the day in your local area our carers are here to help you to live in comfort and independently.
This particular carer has changed all our lives for the better. They care for our dad as if he was their own father. My brother and I feel like a huge weight has been lifted.

Dementia care in Kensington & Chelsea
Continuity and consistency are essential when supporting someone with dementia. Home care, with the support of our dedicated carers allows your loved one to have full support without being unsettled by moving into a care home.
We always look to ensure that your familiar routines are followed closely; if your loved one gets up at a specific time for example or has a favourite activity that they enjoy, our carers will be on hand to facilitate these.
Not only that, but they can also provide close companionship and emotional support when you need them the most.
Care for complex or progressive conditions
Specific, progressive conditions such as motor neurone or cerebral palsy affect people in different ways. As the conditions progress, you might find that you need a greater level of hands-on care.
Working alongside our network of clinical specialists, we can put together your own care plan, tailored to your requirements and what works best for you. Maintaining your independence and way of life is always of the utmost importance to our carers, and they’ll do everything they can to support you with your lifestyle.
From using hoists to tending to catheters and stomas, you be sure our carers will be on hand to make your life as comfortable as possible.
Respite care at the times you need extra support
When you’re looking after a loved one, it’s just as important to look after your own emotional and physical wellbeing.
Respite care is designed to allow you to have a break but still ensures the person you’re supporting has the same level of care you provide for them. Delivered on a short-term basis, respite care ensures you can recharge your batteries for a little while and come back feeling refreshed.
You might also have another commitment or a family emergency which needs your attention. With respite care, you can tend to any emergencies you need to without worrying that your loved one is left alone.
And our carers always follow the same high standards that you expect them to follow, maintaining a consistent support.
Having the opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives has been amazing. I’ve been able to help people with a variety of needs, and I’ve had some memorable experiences.
