Visiting care and home care in Kingston-upon-Thames
Only ten miles south west of Charing Cross, the borough of Kingston upon Thames is ideally located for both the capital but also if you’re looking for plenty of green open space. Historically, it is notable as the ancient market town where Saxon kings were crowned and has been mentioned in records since 838AD.

Personalised care plan
Carer to match your needs, personality and interests
As an area care manager, I have operational and financial responsibility for the branches in my region. It is my role to lead and motivate my team and to ensure that the care we provide meets the national standards in terms of quality. On a day-to-day basis, my focus is to drive growth in terms of our carer and customer base.
In my spare time, I enjoy travelling - generally anywhere with sun and usually have another trip planned before the last one has even ended! When I am at home, I go for long walks and love stopping off for a pub lunch.

Reviews and credentials
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Kingston-upon-Thames to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
Visiting care means you can have the support of an experienced carer within your home, and with visits starting from as little as 30 minutes per week, we will work entirely around you, providing a personalised care plan that respects your needs, preferences and routines. Whether you need support with the practicalities such as personal care and meal preparation, or simply a friendly face to pop in for a cup of tea, our fully managed care service will ensure that you are always supported to live your life the way you want to, whilst safeguarding your wellbeing at home.
Live-in care to support you
Live in care means one of our friendly carers resides in your home so that you have dedicated one-to-one support around the clock. Just because they’re living with you doesn’t mean you’ll feel like your home has been taken over; your carer will only be with you when you want them to be and will spend the rest of their time undertaking household tasks such as laundry and preparing you delicious meals. With livein care you get the benefit of a supportive carer being with you all day and night, as well as the highest levels of care that you’d expect from Helping Hands.
Better than an agency in Kingston upon Thames
Not being an agency means you don’t have to pay us referral fees and other costs that agencies often demand, so you get better value care as a result. We directly employ all of our carers as we are a fully regulated and managed service, so if you want you and your carer to be focussing on the priorities of your care, rather than worrying about employment legalities, contact us today.
Dementia care for you and your loved ones
When living with dementia the time will inevitably come for a conversation about future care and when it does, you need to be sure that you or your loved one are cared for by a company with over 30 years’ experience. We’ve been supporting people living with dementia to remain in the home they love since 1989, often helping to reduce confusion and anxiety by remaining in familiar surroundings, close to loved ones and precious memories, so talk to us today about dementia care.
Respite care for short-term support
When the unforeseen happens, such as an unexpected hospital discharge or a carer becoming ill, you may need short-term care, and quickly. We can get care into your home in 24 hours under normal circumstances, but even when there isn’t quite so much urgency, respite care is also suitable when your regular carer just needs to take a break, so if you need support until they return, we can help.
Elderly care in Kingston upon Thames
As we age, we all find that tasks take a little longer, so if you’re finding life a bit more of a struggle than it used to be talk to us today about elderly care. Whether you’d appreciate extra support with vacuuming, preparing meals or personal care, we can help you with all those and so much more, but regardless of how you need us you’ll be really glad you called.
