What’s the difference between Helping Hands and a care agency in Southampton?
Although a fully managed care provider like Helping Hands Southampton and a care agency both provide care to you in the comfort of your own home, there are several key differences between the two services. The first being the way in which your carers are managed; with Helping Hands, we take care of all aspects of recruitment, training, paperwork and pay that your your carers receive, as well as arranging replacements if your carer becomes unwell or wants to take annual leave. Whereas a care agency service would introduce you to a carer but step back once you have made a formal agreement with them, leaving you and your family to ensure they have the right credentials, manage their pay and find someone or have a family member step in if your carer is unavailable.
And if something isn’t quite right or you need to increase the amount of support you receive, we have a dedicated local care manager in Southampton who will be there to support both you and your carers, giving you peace of mind that all of your requirements are being taken care of.

There’s no need to feel guilty about going on holiday; with a bespoke respite care plan, you can rest assured your usual routine will be followed to a T by a friendly and professional carer.
