Located on the Blackwater estuary in Essex, Maldon was once one of only two towns in Essex, the other being Colchester. Home to many picturesque buildings, including the grade I-listed, 15th-century Moot Hall, Maldon has a long and interesting history, not least as the site of the Battle of Maldon which took place against Viking raiders. Since 1882 the Maldon Crystal Sea Salt Company has been producing Maldon Sea Salt in the area, and the town was also the country’s first home of a ‘supermarket’ when Tesco opened their new-style store in 1958.
We can identify with a long and interesting history too, as at Helping Hands we’ve been established since 1989 and in that time have delivered visiting care and live-in care are to thousands of customers, helping them to live their very best quality of life in the home they 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.

Fully flexible care packages as your needs change
Flexible care provided in your own home with a fully qualified carer. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes up to several hourly or overnight calls throughout the week.
One-to-one support from a fully qualified care that lives with you. Full-time support so you can stay at home where you feel most comfortable.
Visiting care is support in your own home, as often or as infrequently as you need us. With care starting from just 30 minutes per week, we can be flexible to your changing needs and only deliver the amount of support you feel you currently need. As your condition changes our visiting care will change with you, meaning you can have as many visits per day of varying duration that you require. Our bespoke packages of care are tailored around you, and your personalised support plan will detail every aspect of your daily routine, meaning you will always remain firmly at the centre of your own care journey. Our amazing carers will support with everything you need, whether you have complex needs or would just like some companionship, including your personal care, medication, mobility and housework.
With live-in care, our dedicated and compassionate carers live in your home with you, so they’re available to care for you around the clock, morning, evening or overnight. You needn’t be concerned that your home won’t feel like your own anymore with a live-in carer either, as our professional carers are discreet; never getting under your feet and recognising when you would rather have some peace and quiet or when you’d like privacy and some time to yourself. For everything else though, they will be with you whenever you need them and will quickly become a friend, in fact, you’ll soon wonder how you ever managed without them. Whether you have a life-limiting condition or would just like someone with you throughout the day and night, our Maldon live-in carers will provide support with every aspect of your daily care routine.
When you get to know Helping Hands you’ll know that we have never been and will never be what is traditionally thought of as a ‘care agency’. We are a private home care company who prides ourselves on always delivering exemplary standards of care for our customers and keeping our practices transparent so that you always know what is happening with your care. You’ll never see referral fees or other strange costs added to your bill at the end of the month, as we feel these, and more are all part of your care package and constitute just another aspect of our excellent customer service.
Our excellent private care services are fully flexible to your changing needs, meaning that, from the moment you first call us, we will be taking care of you and ensuring your needs are being met. Remaining in your own home for your care is always going to be preferable to the rigidity of living in a residential home, as you get to choose your own mealtimes and every other aspect of your care delivery when it happens at home. By choosing private care in the Maldon area you remain firmly in the centre of your care journey, dictating what happens and when so that you get to live your best life possible.
When you need care in a hurry it can be a daunting and stressful time for you and your loved ones, however calling Helping Hands as your first port of call will save you a lot of unnecessary worry and hassle. This is because we can have a carer with you in an emergency within 24 hours of your initial call, meaning you and your loved ones don’t need to be concerned about a continuity of care when your regular carer needs time away or you’re unexpectedly discharged from hospital.
Being in your home alone overnight may be something you don’t relish, perhaps because you need around the clock care or simply because it makes you feel less secure. This is where our amazing carers in the Maldon area can be invaluable; they will come to you on either a visiting or live-in basis and ensure you have all the support you need overnight. This means that your family or other carer gets to take the rest they need so that they’re alert to care for you during the day, but you still have all the support you need, whether that’s administering your medication in a timely fashion or supporting your mobility throughout the night.
Our amazing carers in the Maldon area are dedicated to ensuring our customers get to live their very best quality of life possible, in the home they love being in. We carefully select our carers to ensure that we only have people working for us who share our ethos for exemplary standards of care delivery, which is why only about 2% of our entire applicants actually get to become Helping Hands carers. We train them well to build on their existing skills and experience so that they have all the knowledge they need to support our customers at home. We also thoroughly check our carers’ backgrounds and screen through the DBS so you can be confident about who is entering your home, and because we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, you and your loved ones can be confident that you’ll always be in the very best hands with us.
