As a city which started out as a fortress, Lincoln’s history can be traced as far back as 300BC with links to the city’s past heritage that can still be seen today. It is the birthplace of the tank and home to Lincoln Cathedral – what was the tallest building in the world in 1300 – and it is now a residence of one of the UK’s leading home care providers; Helping Hands.
Based in the heart of Lincoln, our team support families across the local community including Retford, Gainsborough, Market Rasen, Louth Nettleham, Saxilby, Sudbrooke, Welton, Birchwood, Cherry Willingham, Washingborough, Branston and the surrounding areas.

We understand that everybody is different, regardless of their circumstances, and here at Helping Hands we celebrate your differences and encourage you to live the life you want to lead. Whether you’re recovering from an acquired brain injury and you like to attend art classes or you are living with dementia and you want remain in the familiarities of your own home; the team will work with you to give you the care you want, whenever you want it.
Whether you’re looking for 30-minute visits to help you prepare your evening meals or more complex support involving several overnight stays, our Lincoln team are here to give you person-centred care that enables you to remain safe and independent in your own home.
What’s more, we don’t just support you with the practical things; your mental health is just as important to us as your physical wellbeing. So whether you enjoy exploring the local antique shops or discussing the city’s history over a coffee and a cake, we’ll be right there with you.
We understand that, when the need arises for more intensive support, residential care isn’t always everybody’s first choice. That’s why the team are here to provide bespoke live-in care packages that are built by and around you, enabling you to get the support you need without having to leave the comfort of your own home.
The idea of inviting someone new to live in your home can be daunting, but when it comes to selecting your carer we will work with you so that you can choose someone who not only supports you physically, but also shares many of your interests and hobbies. That way, you’re not just receiving a carer; you gain a friend.
If you are living with a more complex condition or require more intensive support, we have the expertise of our clinical nurse team to support all of our carers. With experience in supporting people living with cerebral palsy, spinal muscular atrophy and additional care such as stoma management and PEG feeding, our team are here to ensure that you have everything you need to feel comfortable at home.
Mary Lee founded Helping Hands in 1989 as a way to enable families who needed more support to remain comfortable at home. Thirty years later, our values haven’t changed and we are still providing the exact same person-centred care to thousands of families across England and Wales.
Although domiciliary care is traditionally associated with elderly care, we look after anyone who needs a helping hand from the age of 18 all the way up to 100 and beyond. If it’s supporting you with getting to and from work, or somebody to accompany you to the library to study – our team are here to give you the support you need, when you need it.
As one of the UK’s leading dementia care specialists, we understand how important it is to get the right care when living with any one of the many different types of dementia. From vascular dementia to Alzheimer’s to frontotemporal dementia, understanding and managing the symptoms of any of these conditions can be distressing for you and your surrounding family. That’s why the team are here to give you the information, support and reassurances needed to guide you through your journey with dementia.
Not only are our carers specially trained to understand each condition, but our Lincoln team can help with anything from preparing the right meals to finding the right ways to enjoy your time together and reminisce over your happy memories with your loved ones. Dementia care isn’t just about your practical support, it’s also about remembering the person underneath the dementia.
As we grow through each stage of life, our bodies and minds are inevitably going to change – and we’re here to provide elderly care if you need a little support with household duties, taking medication, personal care or just going out into your local community. Your independence is at the heart of what we do, and the team are here to ensure that you can continue to go about your daily life with minimal disruption to your usual routine.
Respite care can be required for any number of reasons; you may be due to be discharged from hospital but would like some extra support while you get back on your feet, or perhaps your usual caregiver is taking a break and you need somebody to step in until they return home. Regardless of what it is you need, the team are here to provide a tailored respite care package that is built entirely around you and your needs to give you the care you need, for as long as you need it.
We’ll ensure a seamless transition between carers, ensuring that you continue to receive high-quality care with no detriment to your comfort or independence. What’s more, we can build your respite care package within 24 hours of your initial enquiry.
We’re proud to have been providing industry-leading care to thousands of families across England and Wales for over 30 years, but this wouldn’t have been possible if it weren’t for the compassion and dedication of our amazing carers.
Each of our carers complete an extensive training programme that covers moving & handling, safeguarding, medication, dementia care and equality & diversity, and they all receive full background checks such as Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screenings. What’s more, they each possess the very quality that is needed to become a part of our team – they all genuinely care.
Here at Helping Hands, we’re proud to be the only homecare provider to be endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care, and we are also fully licensed by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
