Helping Hands in Stoke-on-Trent is a team made up of people who are enthused by helping others and dedicated to excellence in their work. Fully-trained in line with the Care Quality Commission, each carer is diligent in their development as a healthcare worker, just as they are selfless in their consideration for the people they assist.
Located just outside of the city centre, Jennifer and her team at the Stoke branch work tirelessly to provide professional and empathetic care in Burslem, Chesterton, Clayton, Fenton, Milton, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Shelton, Silverdale and the surrounding areas.
Also known as The Potteries for its rich industrial history in the pottery trade, Stoke-on-Trent is home to some of the country’s best attractions including Alton Towers, Trentham Monkey Forest and the World of Wedgewood. Furthermore, it is home to a Helping Hands branch prepared to provide industry-leading home care to you and your loved ones.
From visiting care to live-in care, our Stoke team specialise in catering to the needs of those with vulnerable conditions. Whether you need a weekly drop-in visit to help with household tasks or full-time assistance to support you with complex conditions, Jenny’s team are experts in home care and will work with you to create a package tailored to your requirements and match you with a fully-qualified carer matched to your personality and interests.
Jenny has lived in the Stoke-on-Trent area for over 36 years and has held a number of care roles during that time. She loves meeting with customers in the local area and finding out how her carers can support people across Stoke.
“I believe it’s often the little things in life, like a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, which all have the potential to turn a life around,” Jenny says.
“I have progressed from working as a Care Support Worker to a Registered Manager, working with individuals with various needs, including the elderly, people with learning disabilities, palliative care, autism and challenging behaviours,” she adds. “I also hold a Level 4 NVQ in Leadership & Management and am a qualified trainer in moving and handling. I feel very passionate about providing care and feel that Helping Hands shares my values on providing high quality, truly person-centred care and support.”
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.

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.
Bringing over 30 years’ experience of supporting people in their own homes, we’re fully committed to helping you get the support you need without having to compromise on your routines and comfort.
Our visiting home care works around you and your requirements, helping you with the day-to-day tasks you might need some additional support with. So, it might be that we pop in once a week to help with keeping the house clean and tidy, or we might see you several times a day and help you with getting washed, dressed and administering medication. Whatever you need support with, we’ll find a way to make it happen.
Even if your care needs change and you require extra support with a progressive condition such as Parkinson’s or Huntington’s, we can amend your care plan at any time. With our expert team of Clinical Nurses on hand to support with more complex care needs, we’re able to adjust around you and enable you to stay where you feel most comfortable – in your own home.
If your care needs mean that you require constant support, our fully-trained live-in carers are the perfect option if you want to remain at home but need extra help. As the name suggests, a live-in carer will move in with you and be there as a constant source of reassurance for both you and your loved ones. Whether you’re finding it difficult to carry out personal care alone or struggle with your mobility, your chosen live-in carer will be there to help you manage.
Not only does a live-in carer mean that all of your practical requirements are taken care of, but we’ll ensure that your emotional wellbeing is being looked after as well. The team from Stoke will work with you to find a live-in carer that matches to your care needs, interests and personality, so that you won’t just have a carer, you’ll have a companion too.
Whether it’s popping down the road with you to collect your daily newspaper or supporting you to cook your favourite meals, domiciliary care from Jenny’s team provides peace of mind to both you and your loved ones that you’re in the very best hands.
Allowing you to choose when and how you want care, the Stoke team can support with a number of different conditions such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and stroke recovery. And with care starting from as little as 30 minutes per week, our aim is to maintain your daily routine with minimal disruption.
Recognised as the UK’s leading dementia home care experts, we know what it takes to provide non-judgemental, compassionate and professional care for those living with dementia.
With all of our carers going through detailed dementia training, Jenny’s team are equipped at supporting you and your family at whichever stage of your diagnosis you are at. Whether you’re living with Pick’s disease, Alzheimer’s or early-onset dementia, we’ll be there with you to help relieve any anxieties and support you with your symptoms.
Aging is a natural part of life, but it doesn’t mean that you have to lose your freedom and autonomy. Elderly care from Helping Hands is created with you in mind and includes all of your practical and emotional needs – whether that’s helping you to do your weekly shop or support with your daily personal care routine.
What’s more, we can amend your care plan depending on what you require. So if you need more regular calls throughout the day to help with stoma care, or if you want someone to accompany you to Trentham Garden Centre, we’ll make sure that your needs are catered for.
Many carers looking after loved ones give their time voluntarily or juggle care alongside other commitments. While it can be extremely rewarding to care for someone, it can be incredibly taxing both physically and mentally. If you or your carer needs a bit of respite, Jenny’s team are ready to step in to help.
With care being able to commence in as little as 24 hours from your first enquiry, we can also cater for emergencies when your regular caregiver may need to tend to another family member, or if you’re being discharged from hospital but need a bit of extra support to stay at home safely. Jenny’s team will make sure everything is taken care of – so you don’t have to worry.
What makes our carers so special is their unrelenting desire to help others, and that sentiment is exactly the same for Jenny and her team. With all of our carers receiving award-winning, in-house training including manual handling, first aid and safeguarding, we ensure that we only employ the very best carers in the industry.
Before joining the team, our carers all receive full background checks including Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screenings, and several references from previous employers. With such a rigorous training programme and employee checks, you can rest assured that you’re only receiving the best level of care.
We’re also extremely proud to be the first and only home care provider to be recognised as a Centre of Excellence by Skills for Care, as well as being fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Stoke-on-Trent to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
