Home to the legendary outlaw, Robin Hood, Nottingham has a rich history of invention and innovation. Not only is it the place where ibuprofen, tarmac, HP Sauce, the MRI scanner and the videotape recorder were created, but it has also introduced a brand-new team of dedicated Helping Hands carers.
Our team of professional and friendly carers offer visiting home care to support you with everyday tasks from housekeeping and shopping, to more specialist support for complex conditions. For those that require round-the-clock assistance, we are here to help with full-time live-in care, giving you peace of mind that your requirements are always catered for. Get in touch with us today to find out more about the range of care we offer and how we are able to alleviate your daily difficulties.

Carer to match your needs, personality and interests
My role as Area Care Manager is to oversee the Central region, ensuring that new branches are set up safely and are providing a quality service to customers, and ensuring that branch care managers feel supported in their roles to do this.
I started in care 20+ years ago as a care worker whilst studying at university. This was to gain experience in a customer-facing role and because I have a passion for caring for people with various disabilities. After finishing university, I continued in the care sector as I enjoyed supporting people to live their way in their own home. I worked my way up to a care coordinator, registered care manager and then managing multiple sites as a director of services.
I took on the role at Helping Hands as head of care as their values align with me, the main one being KINDNESS. At Helping Hands, we believe in providing a quality, safe and effective service to our customers and recruiting the best talent to enable us to do this. Just like the customer, we value our staff by being flexible for them and providing them with extensive training to do their role and progress within the organisation; as head of care, this makes me proud to work here!
I champion dignity in care and believe that everyone should be treated with dignity - this is a basic human right and not an added extra.

We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Nottingham to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
Here at Helping Hands, our aim is to ensure that you remain safe, comfortable and independent in your own home – and we’re proud to have been supporting thousands of families in doing just that for over 30 years.
Everybody has their own individual ways of living their lives, and we understand the importance of being enabled to do so. That’s why the team are here to ensure that you are able to continue to live your life entirely on your terms – just with a little help along the way.
With experience in a variety of conditions including dementia, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, mental health and many more. For example, with domiciliary care from our Nottingham team, you will have the freedom to decide the frequency and intensity of the care you receive. The team will work with you to ensure that you have all the support you need to remain safe at home with no compromise to your independence.
As one of the leading dementia care specialists in the UK, we understand that the time following a dementia diagnosis can be unnerving for you and your loved ones. From memory loss to a change in behaviour, the team are here to provide the comfort and support that you need to guide you through your journey with dementia.
We’re here to support you with whatever it is you need. Whether it’s 30-minute drop-ins for a cup of tea and a chat or assisting you to get out and about into the local community; our Nottingham team will provide a personalised care package that is built by you, for you.
Live-in care in Nottingham to support you at home
Whether you’re living with a progressive condition, recovering from a life-changing injury, or you simply need a little extra help in going about your daily routine – the team will work with you to build a bespoke live-in care in Nottingham package that enables you to have round-the-clock 24 hour care in the comfort of your own home.
With no visiting restrictions and no set mealtimes or menus, live-in care gives you the freedom to decide exactly what you do with each day. Whether you like to visit Sherwood Forest in the summer evenings or you enjoy walking through the cinematic streets of The Lace Market, your carer will be right there with you.
As well as providing practical support, we care about your mental wellbeing too. We understand that your live-in carer needs to be someone that you feel happy and comfortable with, so we’ll work with you to find a private carer that shares your hobbies and interests. With Helping Hands, you receive so much more than care; we’ll become a part of your family.
Respite care in Nottingham - for your short term needs
Respite care can be required for any number of reasons. You may be looking to go on holiday but don’t feel confident without extra support, or perhaps you are due to return home from a spell in hospital and you’d like a helping hand in getting back on your feet.
It may be that your regular carer has to tend to an emergency and you require an alternative arrangement to be put in place quickly. Regardless of what it is you need, the team will work with you to put together a bespoke respite care package that ensures that you receive high-quality care – often within 24 hours of your initial enquiry.
The difference between Helping Hands and a care agency in Nottingham
There are many advantages of choosing a fully managed home care provider instead of a care agency in Nottingham. Helping Hands are endorsed as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care. Regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and following a stringent recruitment process, each of our carers complete comprehensive in-house training covering modules such as moving and handling, dementia awareness, safeguarding and medication administration. What’s more, they all receive full background checks, including Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screenings, so you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.
In addition to their knowledge and expertise, our wonderful team of carers are fully committed to enabling you to live a happy life that is entirely on your terms. Their kindness, warmth and compassion is what has enabled us to support families in doing just that for over 30 years, and we’re incredibly proud of each and every one of them.
Elderly care agencies also tend to charge you only for the tasks that you need completing or elements of personal care that you need support with, rather than an all-inclusive cost like Helping Hands Nottingham. That way, if you find yourself needing extra assistance with taking medication, getting to and from the shops or additional support with bathing and getting dressed, we can adapt to your changing needs without any extra cost.
Helping Hands Home Care is registered and therefore licensed to provide services by the Care Quality Commission (ID: 1-101671690) and the Care Inspectorate Wales (certificate number: W15/00000831/O001/0001).
