Helping Hands have been supporting people to remain comfortable, safe and cared for in their own homes since 1989, so we truly are the home care experts. Regardless of whether you need us for a little or a lot of support, we will be there for you and with your personalised support plan you will always feel at the centre of your care journey. We’re fully regulated by the CQC and CIW so you can be sure we’ll deliver what we promise, so why not talk to us today about how we could be supporting you or your loved ones at home?
We can support you in and around Rushden, Warmonds Hill, Higham Ferrers, Wymington, Irchester, and the surrounding areas.
Rushden has prospered over the centuries thanks to lace making and farming but especially because of shoemaking and associated trades. In the mid-20th century, there were over 100 boot and shoe factories in Rushden but even though there are only four left today, the tradition lives on.
We are very proud of tradition and heritage in Helping Hands too, as we’ve had over 30 years of success in the home care industry and we continue to see unprecedented growth. Our visiting and live-in care services can provide whatever care you need from just 30 minutes a week, including medication support and personal care, so whatever your care needs, we can support you.
"Hello, I’m Sarah the Branch Manager for the Northampton Branch of Helping Hands. It is my job to ensure that all runs smoothly in the branch, that customers receive the highest quality care and that carers are fully supported in their role. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and visiting the seaside. Both of my sons are in the England Street Dance Team, so I spend a lot of time travelling and watching them in competitions which I love!"

If you’re concerned that you’ll need to go to residential care, even temporarily, you don’t need to be, as our compassionate carers come to you! When you have respite care from Helping Hands, we can support you on a very short-term basis or for as long as you need. Perhaps your regular carer is going on holiday or maybe it’s your family who are going and they want you to go with them. We can support you in your own home or to go on a trip so that you all get to relax and unwind. Even in an emergency we can assist you, having a carer in your home within 24 hours.
As we get older, we can sometimes become a little frailer, meaning that household tasks take longer than they used to and we get concerned for our safety at home. With Helping Hands, you don’t need to worry though, as we can come to your home and offer elderly care that ensures you’ll never struggle again. Whether it’s help with vacuuming, preparing meals or taking a shower safely, our compassionate carers will go above and beyond to ensure that your care is always the priority.
We believe our carers are the best in the industry, due to the fact that we only select people to work for Helping Hands who share our ethos for delivering the highest quality, person-centred care.
