Meet Denny, our Branch Manager
"Hello! I’m Denny, the Manager at Helping Hands' Solihull branch. I have been with Helping Hands for over 10 years and started my career path as a carer with Helping Hands. I know from personal experience how daunting it can be to receive care for the first time. I personally looked after my own mum and mother-in-law who were both palliative, so have experienced first-hand what it is like to receive care.
My role is to make sure we get the 'right fit' of carer, deliver continuity and quality care, and complete a bespoke care plan. We can pop in for half an hour once a day to help start the day, or take them to “Crufts” for the whole day! Our aim is to be flexible with people’s needs as they can change on a daily basis. Our carer training is impeccable, with ongoing training and support from myself and our team of Clinical Nurses."

Denny and her team provide everything from companionship, housekeeping, through to providing more complex healthcare support for people with conditions such as MS, Spinal Injuries, Parkinson’s, Acquired Brain Injuries and those that have suffered a Stroke. Every member of the Helping Hands team is here to ensure we enable our customers to enjoy the quality of life they deserve in the comfort of their own home, irrespective of their personal or medical needs.
The team of dedicated carers across Solihull and the surrounding areas are chosen and trained at the branch, supported by expert guidance from a team of registered nurses and myself. We draw on our extensive knowledge of the area, having first launched Helping Hands in Warwickshire in 1989.
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.
I’m amazed, David (my husband) has not been so settled in well over three years and it’s all down to the continuity of care that Helping Hands have provided for us.

Muriel's story: visiting care in Solihull
Muriel is 82 years old and lives in Dorridge, Solihull. She is a lively and independent woman, but her disability means she has difficulty getting around.
Her daughter contacted Helping Hands to arrange occasional visiting care on weekdays when she’s unable to help herself because of work commitments. Kate, one of our carers, now visits Muriel for two hours at a time, helping with errands and chores around the house.
Kate and Muriel have developed a great relationship. On a typical visit, Kate will pick-up groceries from the shops or take Muriel’s dog for a walk. Simple tasks, but they just make Muriel’s life a little easier.
Live-in care in Solihull
If you need a more intense level of home care in Solihull our carers are fully trained to provide you with it. Our live-in care services in Solihull mean that one of our carers can be there to help you around the clock. If you have a progressive medical condition or have been recently injured and need support around the home, one of our carers can give you the extra support you need. If your medical condition requires that you take medication in the middle of the night, one of our carers can be there to remind you to take it, and help to administer it.
You can be confident in the expert knowledge of our carers. All of our local Solihull carers have been fully trained at our very own Centre of Excellence, and have a wide knowledge of complex condition-led care. All Helping Hands carers are DBS checked and trained to help you or your loved one remain independent in their home, whilst giving you the level of live-in care that you require.
Barry's story: live-in care in Knowle
Barry is 68 years old and from Knowle. Having been with Helping Hands since 2012, Barry’s Solihull carer, Tom, has now moved into his home to provide live-in care.
Tom supports Barry with managing his medication and provides him with help around the house. This ranges from doing the washing up to helping Barry prepare dinner.
Tom and Barry have a shared interest in football, so once Tom’s cooked and finished the chores, they’ll often catch-up on the latest games – as well as engaging in some friendly debate about the merits of their favourite teams.
Friendly, qualified carers in Solihull
Our Solihull carers are committed to providing you or your loved one with the very best possible care. To ensure that they can deliver your care to the highest standard, we are committed to providing them with a comprehensive programme of training and support.
Before beginning their work with us, all our carers take part in an intensive training programme at our Centre of Excellence. But the training does not stop there. Every Helping Hands carer takes part in on-going training to boost their knowledge and experience across a wide range of areas, from dementia care to complex care requirements.
Our carers are also committed to ensuring that you receive the best condition-led care available, and work with local GPs to understand how best to support you.
I enjoy the variety each day that care work brings. Each customer is different and I enjoy getting to know them. It’s also a lovely feeling, knowing that people appreciate what you do.
