When you choose care from Helping Hands you don’t just get the support of our dedicated and compassionate home carers, you also get the benefit of our 30+ years in the industry. We’ve cared for thousands of people throughout England and Wales, enabling them to remain as independent as possible in the home they love. We’re fully regulated by the CQC and CIW meaning you can have full confidence in our professional service to take care of you or your loved ones, so why not call us today and discover why thousands of other people have too?
We can support you in and around Oldbury, Langley Green, Rood End, Blackheath, Bristnall Fields, Rowley Regis and the surrounding areas.
Oldbury’s place name comes from ‘Ealdenbyrig’, Eald being Anglo-Saxon for ‘old’ and a burh being a fortification; ‘byrig’ being the plural of burh. Consequently, this means that 1000 years ago Oldbury was considered old, so its rich history is without question.
Helping Hands also has a rich history, and while it doesn’t date back 1000 years yet, we do have over three decades of experience providing visiting and live-in care for our customers. Our visiting service can start from just 30 minutes a week meaning that we really can design a care package for everyone.

When living with complex care needs you may imagine that your only option is to move into a care home, but that’s not the case at all. Live-in care from Helping Hands will see one of our dedicated carers going to live in your home with you, providing around the clock care and companionship. If you need nursing care one of our clinical nurse team will also supervise your specially trained carer so that they will have an in-depth knowledge of your condition. You’ll never be alone at home as when your carer needs a break our visiting service can support you, and thanks to your personalised care and support plan you will have care of the highest standards from someone who will quickly become a friend.
Our fully regulated and managed home care service means we’re better than a care agency in so many ways. Due to directly employing our carers and therefore protecting them from the worry of self-employment paperwork, our carers feel valued and therefore highly motivated to ensure that your well-being is always their priority. Due to us having over 30 years of experience in the industry, we really are the specialist home care company you can trust.
Even though you may not need care right away after a dementia diagnosis, it’s natural that questions can start to arise about long-term care and who is going to support you as your condition progresses. Our dedicated and empathetic dementia carers can help you to live your best life with dementia, thanks to our unique understanding of the different types, gained from our 30 plus years of dementia experience. Remaining at home in the place you love most for dementia care can make such a huge difference to your day-to-day life, as confusion and anxiety can be reduced in familiar surroundings.
With respite care from Helping Hands you can remain in the home you love for short-term support, as our carers will come to you! We can support you with medication, personal care, mobility help, meal preparation, housework and so much more, so if your regular carer needs to take a well-earned break or your loved ones are going on holiday we can help. Perhaps you’ve never had care before and would like to see if it’s a good fit, or maybe you’d like support with a special occasion; even in an emergency, our carers can be with you within 24 hours when needs dictate.
As we age, some people can find that certain tasks at home become more difficult, perhaps due to age-related frailties or conditions. Our dedicated carers can offer extra support to you at home whether it be cooking you a nutritious meal, personal care or taking care of the laundry amongst many other things, so don’t struggle on; we can do those things for you whilst you relax with a cup of tea! Why not talk to us today about elderly care and discover how we could make life that little bit easier for you?
Our carers are compassionate and empathetic, and we train them thoroughly to look after our customers, so you can be sure that at all times you or your loved one will be at the centre of your own care journey. On top of this, they are all screened through the Disclosure and Barring Service, so you can be sure that they’re safe to be within your home. We think our carers are the heart of our business because they always put their customers first and go above and beyond to care for them; plus our fully managed service is regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, so you know you’ll always be in the best hands with Helping Hands.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
