Since 1989 we have been supporting our customers to remain in the place they love best, their own beloved home. Just because you require care, doesn’t mean you should leave the place you love and our over 40,000 customers are testament to that. Our fully regulated service means that we abide by the CQC and CIW’s guidelines for the safe delivery of home care and our compassionate carers regularly go above and beyond to ensure their customers are safeguarded at home. Why not talk to us today about how we could be supporting you or your loved ones?
We can support you in and around Kettering, Barton Seagrave, Weekley, Warkton, Barton Latimer, Isham, and the surrounding areas.
Over the centuries, Kettering has been spelt in various different ways including Cytringan, Kyteringas and Keteiringan in the 10th century. The meaning of the name apparently suggests “the place (or territory) of Ketter’s people (or kinsfolk)” in Anglo-Saxon.
Our name is synonymous with ‘belonging’ too, as Helping Hands has cared for over 40,000 customers since 1989, helping them to stay in the place they love. Our live-in care service can give you care and companionship around the clock, whereas our visiting service is available from just 30 minutes a week, so no matter what your needs are, we can help.
"Hello, I’m Sarah the Branch Manager for the Northampton Branch of Helping Hands. It is my job to ensure that all runs smoothly in the branch, that customers receive the highest quality care and that carers are fully supported in their role. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and visiting the seaside. Both of my sons are in the England Street Dance Team, so I spend a lot of time travelling and watching them in competitions which I love!"
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.

Your carer will be with you around the clock and will soon become a friend, meaning that you get the care and support you need as well as an extra pair of hands to help with tasks such as meal preparation, laundry and personal care.

Our fully regulated and managed service always has the priorities of your care as our top priority, and our carers at the heart of everything we do. This means that our carers feel valued and are therefore highly motivated to carry out your care, often going above and beyond to ensure that our customers are always happy at home.

When you want to remain in the home you love, and you enjoy being as independent as possible, domiciliary care from Helping Hands could make all the difference to your daily routine. Our compassionate carers focus entirely on your wellbeing and you’re always in control with our flexible packages of care, tailored exactly to your requirements. We can support you with every aspect if your home care needs including medication, mobility support, household tasks such as laundry and vacuuming and personal care, as well as escorting you to appointments and days out.
Being diagnosed with dementia can be difficult, not just for the person diagnosed but for their loved ones too. While you may not require dementia care straight away, as your condition progresses you may find that having some professional support will make a huge difference to your life at home. Remaining in familiar surroundings, the place you love, full of precious memories, can make a huge difference to your daily wellbeing and can help reduce confusion and anxiety in some cases, as can support from our dementia specialist carers.
If your regular carer needs to take a break and you or your loved ones are worrying about replacing them, there is an alternative to residential care. Respite care from Helping Hands will see our carers come to you on a visiting or live-in basis for as long as you need them, whether it’s three days or three weeks. Your carer will be able to undertake everything that your carer usually dies for you and you’ll have a personalised support plan that will ensure your routines are followed, meaning it will be as if your carer never left. We can also offer emergency care, within 24 hours where necessary.
Our carers can come to you and offer extra support with every aspect of your day-to-day routine, such as personal care, laundry, meal preparation and housework. If you’re worried about your ability to cope at home with the usual household and personal tasks then we can help, so don’t struggle on regardless, let us take care of everything, while supporting you with elderly care to live as independently as possible at home. We’ll make you a cup of tea so you can watch us undertake the tasks you need completing while you supervise with your feet up!
Our carers are fully trained to support our customers and we ensure they always have the opportunity for professional development as their employment progresses. Our carers are at the heart of our business because we know what a difference they make to our customers, and with over 6000 of them changing lives on a daily basis, we really are the home care specialists. Our service is fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales so you and your loved ones can be confident in the care we provide, and we’ll always support your dignity and independence with our expert service.
