For more than more than 30 years, Helping Hands have been supporting our customers to remain as independent as possible in the home they love most. Because we’ve gained so much experience over the years, we really are the home care experts and we’re fully regulated by the CQC and CIW so you can be confident in our exemplary service. Your routines and preferences will always be respected, thanks to your personalised support plan, so talk to us today about our compassionate home care.
We can support you in and around Sawbridgeworth, Spellbrook, Allen’s Green, Hatfield Heath, Shearing, High Wych, Lower Sheering and the surrounding areas.
Heritage and history go deep in Sawbridgeworth with much of the town centre being a conservation area and buildings dating from the Tudor, Stuart and Georgian periods. If you were to go deep below the town, you’d find the London Clay stratum, a thick layer of Boulder clay laid down during the ice ages.
Helping Hands can identify with building on solid foundations as that’s we’ve been doing for the last 30 years. Thanks to our visiting and live-in services we’ve supported thousands of customers to remain in the home they love and with visits starting from just 30 minutes we’ll be able to support you to remain in the home you love.
“I’m the Regional Clinical Lead for London and Essex. I am proud to have 20 years’ experience in care and nursing and can’t imagine that there is anything else that I would want to do more. I am passionate about proactive care and health education and I have been lucky enough not only to look after, but also work alongside so many different people – I’ve heard so many amazing and often inspiring stories. Working for Helping Hands enables me and my colleagues to support people in their own home – the place where most people want to stay for as long as they can. It’s so important and extremely rewarding.”
For over 30 years, we've been supporting people with care, nurse-supported care and companionship across England and Wales. As industry-leaders in home care, we know what it takes to provide the right level of care so that you can retain your independence in the comfort of your beloved home.

If you’re presuming you’ll have to go into a care home for around the clock care think again; our live-in care service is a cost-effective alternative to residential care and it also means you won’t have to leave the home you love. Your carer will be there all day and night which is reassuring not just for you, but also for your loved ones too, and never being alone at home will ensure you live your best quality of life possible, all with the help of your compassionate live-in carer.
We’re better than an agency because we look after our carers by employing them directly and offering a number of other benefits, as without our amazing carers we’d have no-one to care for our customers. Another benefit to our customers is that our pricing structure is always clear and concise so that you will know exactly what’s coming when your bill arrives, leading to no unpleasant surprises or hidden fees.
Domiciliary care simply means care you receive at home, and that’s what we at Helping Hands are experts in. Our amazing carers come to your home on either a visiting or live-in basis to carry out your care from a personalised support plan that you control. This means you’re always at the centre of your care journey, whether we’re coming to you once a week or living in your home with you.
If you’d like to learn more about dementia care and what we can offer, then let us advise you on the options care at home can offer you. Remaining in your own home for care can be highly beneficial when living with dementia, as the familiarity of your surroundings, along with precious people and objects around you can help to reduce confusion and anxiety, and talking about care in advance of when you may need it also means that you get to voice your preferences about what form your care should take.
If your carer needs to take a scheduled break, or perhaps your family is going on holiday, respite care at home can be a very popular alternative to moving into residential care, even temporarily. Whenever your regular carer isn’t available, you may worry that you’ll have to leave your home, but with Helping Hands that’s not the case. We’ll offer short-term support even in an emergency, when we’ll have a carer in your home with in 24 hours, if required.
If you’ve become a little frailer recently, it can mean that daily tasks take longer than they used to or are impossible to complete. Don’t struggle at home with vacuuming, preparing meals, taking a shower safely/personal care, laundry, housework or anything else, let us provide you with the extra support you need to live your best life possible in the home you love. There’s no need to think about moving into residential care when you could have elderly care and stay in your home instead.
Our carers work tirelessly to keep our customers as independent as possible within their own homes, which is why we think they’re the best in the industry. They frequently go above and beyond, using their thorough training to ensure that everything possible is done to support our customers with every aspect of their daily routines. In addition, we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, meaning you and your loved ones can have the highest confidence in our abilities to deliver excellent standards of person-centred care.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
