When it comes to providing reliable, compassionate home care, Helping Hands is a better choice than a care agency because we truly treasure the people we employ. Our carers really are our most valuable asset, and we do our utmost to ensure they’re fully supported and are always prepared to provide you with wonderful home care when you need it.
We operate differently to care agencies because we employ our carers directly and provide them with award-winning training, supporting them at all times. Being a private care provider also means that you won’t receive any surprise costs or unexpected fees – we’re completely transparent about the cost of our care, and we’ll take care of all the admin and paperwork that can often be such a great source of stress.
Over the course of our 30 years, we have received many accolades that we’re extremely proud of – such as being the first and only home care provider to be recognised as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care. However, none of this would have been possible without the commitment, compassion and kindness of our wonderful carers.
With their professional experience and award-winning training that includes moving and handling, personal care and safeguarding, each of our carers are fully equipped to support you with whatever it is you need. But perhaps most importantly, they all possess the one quality that is pivotal to becoming a part of our team: kindness.
As well as their comprehensive training course, each of our carers go through a stringent recruitment process as well as completing full background checks, such as Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screenings. We are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) which ensures that we are always providing a safe, effective and responsive service.
