Helping Hands Leeds offers a team of passionate carers fully-managed by local care specialists. While adhering to the Care Quality Commission’s best practices, every member of staff performs a highly regulated standard of care and is encouraged to develop an exceptional aptitude for providing support within the West Yorkshire community. With your assigned carer, you can be assured in your receipt of a sentimental, person-centric service that is dedicated to maintaining your independence.
Known for being the unofficial capital of Yorkshire, the lively and colourful city of Leeds is full of quirky shops, award-winning restaurants and beautiful architecture. Whether you want to go for a bite to eat at the Merrion Centre or explore the hundreds of stalls at the famous Kirkgate Market, there’s plenty on offer in this culture-rich city, including care from your local team of Helping Hands carers.
We know how difficult it can be to carry out even the most simple of tasks when you require mental or physical support. From young people with spinal injuries to the elderly living with dementia, we can provide a carer tailored to your requirements and suited to your personality on an hourly visiting basis, or for 24-hour live-in care. There are varying degrees of care required by our customers, but what is unanimous amongst our staff is the determination to uphold your routine, encourage your confidence, and improve your wellbeing.
"Hello, I' m Bethany and as the manager for the Leeds branch I am responsible for all aspects of the day-to-day running of our service. I ensure that all care packages are covered, all carers feel confident through regular training and one-to-ones and that we are compliant with the CQC.
"I am originally from a mining town in the North East and then I moved to North Yorkshire in 2014.
"I joined Helping Hands in 2016 with the York branch and have held various roles within my time here. Originally, I started as full time carer whilst studying at university. I then returned from maternity leave and began my role as field care supervisor. I was then promoted to care coordinator, which I did for almost two years and thoroughly enjoyed, before being successful as branch manager for Leeds."

There are lots of different things to think about when arranging care for yourself or a loved one, and it can be quite a stressful process. But with home care from Helping Hands Leeds, we can ensure the process of care is smooth and stress-free, as we take care of the whole process for you – from ensuring our carers have the skills and knowledge they need to provide exceptional care, creating a bespoke support plan tailored entirely around you with a local care manager and ensuring we complete regular check ups with both you and your carer to make sure that you have everything you need and to discuss any issues. This is very different to a senior care agency service, who will introduce you to a carer but then leave arranging your carer’s paperwork, pay and any issues with you to manage yourself or with your family.
Home care agencies tend to encourage you to only pay for the activities or specific care that you need, which may increase or decrease depending on your needs. You may initially only need support with the housework but as you become slightly more frail or unsteady on your feet, you may require extra support with bathing, getting dressed and preparing meals, which will then increase the cost you pay to your elderly care agency. Whereas a fully managed provider like Helping Hands Leeds has an all-inclusive cost, so your care can be fully flexible to suit your needs without any extra cost.
Domiciliary care can be required at any stage of life, and is needed whenever someone requires extra support in order to remain living independently in their own home. This can include following an accident or illness.
Domiciliary care visits can be arranged to help with a range of daily tasks such as dressing, personal care, or help around the house. Having support with these tasks means that your loved one can continue living comfortably, and independently, where they are happiest – in their own home. You will have peace of mind knowing that someone is checking in on them, and is available to assist them with anything they might be struggling with.
If you or a loved one needs support with a condition, such as living with dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or life after a stroke, then a specially trained carer can provide this tailored support. You can be confident in the expert knowledge of our Leeds carers; all of them have been fully trained at our very own Centre of Excellence, and have a wide knowledge of complex condition-led care.
More and more people are expected to develop dementia in the years ahead. If you or someone you know is diagnosed, then it’s important to remember that you are not alone.
Advanced dementia care may not be needed straightaway, but as the condition progresses, you might need some extra support to ensure that you or your relative can continue living a comfortable and happy life.
The symptoms of dementia vary greatly from person to person and can change suddenly. This means that we aim to put care in place which is tailored to you, and we will continue to adapt it as and when your needs change.
Our Leeds team are fully committed to improving the quality of life of those living with dementia. We offer the highest standards of dementia care as a result of our Helping Hands Dementia Champion programme, which provides our carers with vigorous training and assessment.
As you age, you might start to require a bit of extra help in order to remain living in your home, and with an independent lifestyle. Elderly care is designed to meet your needs and requirements as you grow older.
Elderly care usually becomes necessary if you or a loved one starts experiencing difficulties with activities of daily living. Our Leeds team have almost 30 years of experience supporting elderly people in the area and can offer help with a variety of daily tasks including:
Along with practical support, our carers will also be supportive companions and can help you get out and about in your local community. We will take the time to get to know you and your needs, so that we can develop completely personalised elderly care, suited to you.
Every single carer that works for Helping Hands has been through our extensive training programme and have qualified from our Centre of Excellence.
Further support and training is provided at regular intervals for all of our carers, furthering their care knowledge and expertise.
The Leeds branch is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), we do all that we can to ensure you are safe and receiving the highest standard of care possible.
Our on-call team is accessible 24 hours a day should you ever have a concern or need to get in touch with someone outside of office hours.
It is important that everyone takes some time out to relax and focus on themselves, especially if they’re caring for someone else. Though it is hugely rewarding, it can be mentally and physically draining.
Respite care gives you the opportunity to relax and recharge by enjoying time with friends and family, going away on holiday, or just spending some time alone, all while knowing that the person you’re caring for is being looked after by a trained carer.
Here in Leeds, we have local carers on hand to support you and your loved one whenever you need a break or in the event of an unforeseen emergency. Being regulated by the Care Quality Commission means that you can rest assured that our carers are all qualified to provide the high-quality support and care that you loved one deserves while you’re away.
We tailor every single one of our care packages to ensure that you are receiving exactly what you need. If you are looking for a weekly visit, or three calls every day your carer will be able to support you. A visiting care package is flexible. If your needs change over time-or unexpectedly-we can accommodate you and change your care calls to suit.
Visiting carers can support you with: Personal care – Maintain your dignity and privacy with discreet personal care, be it with washing, toileting or anything in between; Mobility needs – If you need support mobilising around the house or when out and about your carer can help you with this; Medication – We can support you with medication prompts, time specific medication or if you need them physically giving to you; Household jobs – Housework, walking the dog and laundry are all included as well as much more.
