A stone’s throw away from Liverpool, is the borough of St Helens. Here, the team of professional carers are on hand to meet with you about your care and ongoing needs.
The team at St Helens offer tailored support for you in the comfort of your own home, covering West Park, Merton Bank, Peasley Cross, Parr, Sutton and the surrounding areas.
Friendly and compassionate, the service we provide person-centred care for you in your time of need. We offer anything from short-term spells after you’re recovering from an injury, to long-term solutions for progressive conditions.
"Hi, I’m Sharon and I am the Branch Manager at Helping Hands in Widnes & St Helens. For a number of years I have thought about care work as I wanted to be able to play a part in making a difference to people's lives but until seeing the job role advertised by Helping Hands I never made the leap, as my comfort zone has always been working in the NHS.
"From very first impressions at Helping Hands you can see that the company aim to deliver outstanding care to their customers and they really value their carers, this is shown with the training package provided and monthly recognition rewards."
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.
Founded in 1989 and based on strong family values, Helping Hands puts the emphasis of care for you in your home. We want to enable you to live the way you want to, whether that be with a call once a week to help you with the laundry, to daily visits to help with your personal care.
The St Helens team are able to cater for anything from elderly, dementia or respite care, all the way to complex medical and end-of-life care. We believe that everyone has the right to be comfortable in their own home and we endeavour to make this possible for all.
We also understand that care situations may arise for people of any age. Our carers are experienced in working with younger adults who may just need a bit of support getting to university or wish to live a full and active lifestyle at worked and social activities.
Care comes in many different forms, from helping with small tasks to being a vital part of someone’s daily routine, we can help with the following:
Live-in carers do exactly that – live with you in your home and provide round-the-clock care, as and when you require. And it’s no coincidence that our care is nationally recognised as one of the top providers in the country. Our goal is to make sure you or your loved one is offered the best care possible, all from the comfort of your own home on your terms.
For many, residential care is not a desirable or viable option; live-in care by the team at the St Helens branch offers one-to-one care whilst still living with your home comforts. It may be that you have developed a progressive condition and need more focussed support, or you may have acquired a serious injury that requires help throughout the day. All of our carers have a wide knowledge of complex conditions and have support from our team of clinical nurses.
Live-in care can enable you to:
Not only does live-in care provide assistance when you need it most, it also offers you and your family peace of mind that you are in the best possible hands.
Also known as care at home, domiciliary care lets you be in control of your care. Led by you, we can provide intensive or lighter care to suit your pre-existing routine.
Our professional care team in St Helens offer anything from helping you dress or get to the shops, to assisting with medication or sitting with you for a cup of tea. One of the main benefits to this type of care is that it causes minimal upheaval, but maximum assurance that you or your loved one is being fully supported.
As dementia care specialists, we do the utmost to pass on our expertise and knowledge in support those experiencing dementia. With a range of expert clinicians and the latest dementia training scheme for our teams, we have the tools and coping strategies to help you and your families.
There are various challenges that come with memory loss, deteriorating mobility and challenging behaviour and it can often be difficult for loved ones to get used to these changes. Keeping routine and home comforts can make the difference between good and outstanding care, which is why we aim to keep you at home living as independently as possible.
As time goes by, elderly care is becoming a more sought-after option for many people and their families. Having someone on hand to keep you company or pop in to check to you’re taking your medication correctly can be a huge weight off your mind.
The team at St Helens are used to supporting elderly people to live in a safe, happy environment in their own surroundings. Interchangeable care means that the support we can offer can differ as and when you need it.
It’s often difficult to admit that you need a bit of help as you get older. The St Helens team understand this and aim to reassure you with any questions or concerns you may have about welcoming someone into your home.
There may be times when your regular caregiver needs to spend some time away or you might have a family function that you want to attend but someone to travel with you in case you fall. Respite care is a great solution for someone to step in and care for you for a short period of time.
To minimise disruption, the team from St Helens can meet with you and your carer at a suitable time to discuss your respite arrangements and keep to your routines. It might just be that you like going out to the park every afternoon, or you might need supervision with getting in and out of the shower – we will replicate your existing timetable as much as possible.
Respite care also works for one-off occasions such as attending a special event or whilst you’re recovering after being injured. Whatever you need, we’ll be there to help.
For 30 years, our family-run business has grown from strength to strength. Since our humble beginnings in Warwickshire, we have always strived to provide quality home care to promote independence and dignity. With this in mind, we only employ the very best carers of which many have extensive experience in the care industry.
Our award-winning training has paved the way in the care industry. We invest lots of time, energy and resources into our training programme to ensure it equips our carers for the different conditions and symptoms they will face. Covering safeguarding, medical assistance, equality & diversity, first aid and personal care, each and every one of our St Helens team goes through an induction programme, along with continuous development to maintain their practice.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
