Visiting and live-in care in Mansfield
As Nottinghamshire’s largest Market Town, Mansfield has a variety of things to offer – from relaxing walks around Sherwood Forest to an array of shops to browse down the popular Leeming Street – there really is something for everyone. Not forgetting the famous market in the heart of the town, Mansfield also offers visiting and live-in home care from the team at Helping Hands.
With a full team of dedicated and compassionate carers, we cover home visits in Forest Wood, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Mansfield, Pleasley, Rainworth, Ravenshead, Selston, Shirebrook, Sutton-in-Ashfield and the surrounding areas.
Enhancing your independence is our priority, which is exactly what Bella and her team can provide with either live-in or visiting care that works for you, around you.
Meet Georgia, our Senior Care Coordinator
“Hi, I’m Georgia and I’m the Senior Care Coordinator for Mansfield. My responsibilities are to facilitate a safe and responsive service to both our customers and care workers. I am also responsible for allocating the right carer to the right customer at the right time. I support the Registered Care Manager, Bella, with customer visits and new business meetings when required and ensure all carer and customer records are current and up-to-date.”
Home care in Mansfield to suit you
Since 1989, Helping Hands has been providing care to thousands of families across England and Wales, keeping them safe and looked after where they feel most comfortable. Bella and Georgia’s team will do exactly that – arrange visits to suit you but also enable you to feel looked after and happy in your own home.
With all of our carers completing mandatory, in-house training, we can ensure that you’ll get the right type of support – whether that’s someone that pops in once a day to accompany you on your daily walk or if you need several visits to help you get in and out of bed. We want to ensure you’re looked after with dignity and with you at the reigns.
We cover a variety of different conditions including dementia, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and many more. And it’s not just the practical elements that the team will help with; it’s the emotional aspects of care we’ll support with too, so you’ll always have a friendly face to look forward to seeing.
Helping Hands saved the day… We cannot express how important it was for Danny to be able to stay at home with his regular carers and be well looked after at short notice.

Live-in care to fully support you in Mansfield
If you live either by yourself, as part of a couple, or even with a feline or canine companion, a live-in carer can fit in with your life seamlessly without you having to change any of your routines or plans.
As the name suggests, a live-in carer will live with you in your property to ensure that you have everything you need to remain independent in your own home. Providing reassurance around-the-clock, live-in care is ideal if you have more intensive care needs but don’t want to compromise on your autonomy and freedom.
We’ll work with you to find the right person for you – so if you’re a retired zoo keeper, then we’ll do our best to find a carer that has previously looked after animals too! A live-in carer is so much more than just someone that helps with your personal care or getting dressed in the morning; they’re someone that can become more like a member of your family.
Domiciliary care to enable your independence
Domiciliary care allows you the choice of how and when you receive your care, as well as the intensity and duration of your visits. Also known as visiting care, we’ll work with you to create a care plan that takes all of your quirks, medical needs and routines into consideration. That’s why our care is person-centred and designed to fit entirely around you.
Even if you just want someone to help you walk your dog once a day or get stuck in with peeling the potatoes whilst you pop the chicken the oven, Bella and Georgia’s team are happy to help.
Dementia care for complete peace of mind
Living with dementia can be quite a confusing and upsetting time for both you and your family. There’s lots of uncertainty and changes to your routine may not be something that comes easily to you. That’s where Bella and Georgia’s team comes in.
Providing a source of practicality, reassurance and comfort, the Mansfield team will be there to help with any number of things that comes with a dementia diagnosis – whether that’s memory loss, personal care or anxiety.
As a national leader for dementia home care, we know what it takes to support those living with any one of the many different types of dementia, from Pick’s disease, frontotemporal dementia or Alzheimer’s. And with all of our carers trained in how to support those with the condition, you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.
Flexible elderly care to work around you
With age comes the inevitable changes in our mobility and to our memory and cognition. What you once were able to reach on the top shelf in your cupboard may just be too difficult to stretch to now. Although you may be in good health both physically and mentally, elderly care can offer a bit of extra support around the house or even a source of companionship for when you want to have a cup of tea, or even take a trip to Wollaton Hall with.
Bella and Georgia’s team will get to know you and how you want your care package to work for you. And if your needs change, we can ensure that the right steps are put in place to keep you happy at home.
Respite care for short-term breaks
You might need a bit of extra help if you’ve just been discharged from hospital, or you might want to enjoy a holiday with your family or usual caregiver. Whatever your requirements, we’re here to help – and if it’s a family holiday that you want to embark on, respite care can make sure that you all get a real break.
Emergencies can happen too, and we fully understand that sometimes things are out of your control, which can often be a bit unnerving. But worry not – we’re here to alleviate the stress out of finding a last-minute solution by providing respite care in as little as 24 hours’ notice.
Friendly, fully-trained carers in Mansfield
We equip all of our carers to be confident in delivering only the very best care that adheres to the latest guidelines. Covering modules such as moving and handling, first aid, dementia awareness and safeguarding, our in-house training schedule has been certified by Skills for Care as a Centre of Excellence, meaning that we are committed to the very highest standards of industry training.
As well as having full background checks by the Disclosure Barring Service (DBS), Helping Hands’ carers are renowned for going above and beyond, and it’s this selfless, empathetic nature that we look for when recruiting for our teams across the country.
Helping Hands is also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which ensures all of our teams, including Mansfield, are compliant, safe and effective in the care that we provide. Being a family-run company for 30 years means that the care we deliver comes straight from our family to yours, and this is something that we will continue to uphold with everything we do.
No two days are ever the same and I get to meet new customers. They are all lovely, as well as the carers and management. Working for Helping Hands is the best decision I have ever made!
