Meet Nick Smith, our Area Manager
“Care is so much more than simply completing tasks,” Nick, our local area manager, believes. “It’s also a means of giving someone their life and independence back.”
Nick, who has lived and worked in the North West for over 20 years, has held a number of care roles over the course of his career. He has met some amazing people during this time and has some truly fond memories.
A lady once said to me ‘I have told you my story because the doctor says I am losing my memory, so you will have to remember me for me,’” Nick recalls. “I find our customers’ stories really fascinating – it’s one of the true pleasures of working in care.”
Regular care visits in Sheffield
No matter the level of care you require, you can still stay at home if the right support is put in place. Through opting for visiting care, you can still retain your independence and a good quality of life while also having the freedom of a fully-tailored care plan.
Visiting care can be from as little as a 30 minute call a week, with qualified carers assisting you in a discreet and practical manner. It covers a range of care needs and is completely unique to you.
Whether you need help with bathing and dressing, applying creams and lotions or continence care, our carers will ensure you are comfortable and dignified every step of the way. We understand that there may be aspects of this which you would prefer to do yourself so we will always look to you or a loved one for guidance.
Keeping track of time-specific medication can be difficult. Which is why our carers are all trained and assessed on prompting and administering different levels of medication and completing MAR charts.
Moving and handling
All carers are trained in operating various moving and handling equipment such as hoists, slide sheets and wheelchairs. Even if you just need a little supervision when mobilising, our carers will be able to help.
Visiting care can also focus on managing your household. A carer can help with vacuuming, running errands and other ad hoc cleaning tasks. A quick visit in the evening can also see your meals prepared, with carers taking your nutritional needs and preferences are taken into account.
If you’re receiving direct payments for social care through social services, we are able to accept top-ups to these payments. Get in touch to find out more.
Helping Hands have been excellent in both service and reliability. Even last minute changes from us were calmly handled by the team and with great compassion and understanding.
Steven, a visiting care customer
I enjoy having one-to-one interactions with my customers and want to assist them in living a happy and dignified life. It’s so satisfying being able to help people who are in need.

Fully-managed live-in care
If you find you need a higher level of support, there is always the option of live-in care. Not only will a full-time carer provide the reassurance of knowing that someone is always there for you but can also assist you in various areas of your life, just like visiting care.
We have a vigorous carer-customer matching process which really focuses on pairing you with your ideal carer. We take into account specific skills, interests and hobbies, and individual personalities. This is because we understand the importance of getting on with your carers as you will spend a lot of time with them.
