When you choose care from Helping Hands you don’t just get our superb levels of knowledge, honed over our 30-plus years of experience in the home care industry, you also get a company with amazing carers who regularly go above and beyond to keep their customers safe and comfortable in their own homes. Added to that is our regulation by the CQC and CIW and you have a company who you will be wanting to talk to about care for you or your loved ones.
We can support you in and around Sidcup, Foxbury, Roxbury, Lamorbey, Blendon, Avery Hill, Bexley, Coldblow, Swanley Park, Hook Green, Leyton Cross and the surrounding areas.
Originally a tiny hamlet, Sidcup’s name was once Cetecopp meaning ‘seat shaped or flat-topped hill’, first recorded in 1254. We understand small beginnings at Helping Hands as we began in 1989 with just one branch and now we have well over 100, across the whole of England and Wales.
Our visiting and live-in care services offer exemplary levels of care to you or your loved ones within your own home and with visits starting from just 30 minutes a week we’re sure to be able to design a flexible package of care for you.
"Hello, I’m Jackie. As Branch Manager for Dartford, I’m responsible for the office staff and team of carers, ensuring the service runs to exceptional levels, growing the business and developing everyone continuously - including myself!
"I’ve always worked within the domiciliary care sector, but with council contracts. Helping Hands inspired me to take on a new challenge within the private sector. It fills me with pride to know that our clients are receiving an excellent range of services that are all designed to meet our customers’ needs."
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.
Over 100 branches across the UK means we're local to you
We are not an agency - we employ every carer directly
Get to know your carer before care starts
Family-run and experts in home care since 1989
Fully flexible care packages as your needs change
Flexible care provided in your own home with a fully qualified carer. Visits start from as little as 30 minutes up to several hourly or overnight calls throughout the week.
One-to-one support from a fully qualified care that lives with you. Full-time support so you can stay at home where you feel most comfortable.
With visiting care from Helping Hands you get unrivalled standards of home care delivered by compassionate carers in the comfort of your own home. Our fully managed service means you get to remain as independent as possible in the home you love while your routines and preferences are respected thanks to your personalised support plan. Visits start from just 30 minutes a week and can support you with personal care, medication, meal preparation, housework and so much more.
When you choose live-in care, you aren’t just getting superb standards of care throughout the day and night but you’re also having the benefit of companionship whenever you want it. When your carer lives in your home with you, they are there for you as often as you need them, with the added reassurance that you’re never alone in your home. This will also be a great reassurance for any loved ones who may not live nearby.
We’re better than any home care agencies because of how highly we value our carers and consider them the heart of our business. Our carers are all employed directly by us so that they know just how important they are, whereas agencies will often insist that their carers are self-employed and will then charge you ‘matching’ fees to pair you with someone suitable, which is something we consider just part of the service.
Since 1989 we’ve been providing domiciliary care to all of our customers, ensuring they get to remain as independent as possible and enjoy life in the home they love. Our visiting service can see carers coming to you from just 30 minutes a week and with live-in you get care and companionship around the clock, so both services can be tailored to your requirements. Your bespoke package of care will include a personalised support plan to ensure your routines are followed at all times too.
When you choose dementia care from Helping Hands you are getting the benefit of our 30 years of caring for people living with dementia, so you can be reassured that we understand. Our compassionate carers will be able to work effectively with you or your loved one so that you get to live your best life possible in the home you love as your dementia progresses, helping you to create, preserve and reflect on memories while being with you every step of your dementia journey.
If your regular carer is taking a well-earned break, your family are going on holiday, or you require some short-term support at home, you may be concerned about where that support will come from. However, with respite care from Helping Hands we can ensure that you receive all the care you need in the comfort of your own home, without your routines or preferences being compromised. Even if you need us at short notice, we’ll always try to be there within 24 hours.
With elderly care from Helping Hands, you receive extra support in the home you love to ensure that you can manage your day-to-day lifestyle without needing to compromise. Our amazing carers can come to you as often as you need them to undertake personal care, housework, meal preparation, medication support or anything else that you need help with. Don’t struggle on alone when we could be supporting you, talk to us today about help at home.
Our carers are incredible; they support our customers to live their best lives possible, regularly going above and beyond to ensure they retain independence in the home they love. We train our carers well when they join us but that’s not the only reason – they have to have natural compassion and empathy when we select them, or they won’t make the grade as a Helping Hands carer. We’re also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales so you can be confident in our high standards of care delivery.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
