What’s included with home care at Helping Hands?
When you contact our home care Reading team, we’ll work with you closely to devise a care plan that works around your needs and lifestyle. Unlike the care you might receive at a residential facility, home care is never one-size-fits-all – what’s included depends entirely on you. We typically offer either live-in care or shorter term visiting care, but we also can provide respite care as and when it’s needed, as well as overnight or emergency care.
Our carers can visit to help with daily household tasks, cleaning, cooking, shopping, mobility around the home, personal care, medications, or even pet care. Whatever you need from us, we’re standing by with a friendly smile and the willingness to make your life that little bit easier, every day.
Respite Care in Reading
You might not need to commit to full-time or ongoing care, especially if you already have a dedicated carer. However, we understand that things don’t always go to plan, and sometimes the usual career needs to take a break or tend to other matters for a while. Respite care means that Helping Hands is there, sorting out the day-to-day activities as normal, so you can rest assured that everything will be as you left it when you return. Respite care is also an excellent choice if you’re needing some extra support after surgery, a fall or accident, or when recovering from a health condition.
Elderly Care across Reading
At Helping Hands, we understand that seeking care can be difficult – we know that not everyone feels the need for intensive support, but would instead benefit from just a little extra help here and there. We’re committed to providing care that keeps all your usual routines and preferences in place. It’s important that you or your loved one feel able to go on about your day with as much independence and confidence as possible, knowing we’re there when you need us. Our elderly care is not just about physical assistance; every Helping Hands carer genuinely loves the work they do, and they enjoy providing emotional support and reassurance, too.
Reading Dementia Care
The symptoms of dementia can be challenging to live with, and to complicate things, needs may change from day to day. We like to think that our carers excel in the area of dementia care, as we’re committed to bringing real compassion and patience to those living with memory impairment and conditions like Alzheimer’s. Our carers are skilled and experienced, and can provide a warm, encouraging sense of familiarity every day, and a continuity of care that will put your loved one at ease. We make sure that carers are closely matched to the people they look after, so you can rest assured that your loved one is safe and happy at home.
Why Helping Hands is the most trusted Home Care Agency in Reading

Our carers are all very different people, but they all share a passion for making a difference in people’s lives, and they are recruited, vetted and trained to the very best standards. We like to think it’s this approach to home care that sets us apart from other home care options in Reading.
