Live-in care and visiting home care in Taunton

James, our Taunton Branch Manager, and his team of expert carers are fully committed to providing you or your loved one with bespoke home care services in Taunton, Wellington, Tiverton, Chard, Ilminster, North Petherton, Cotford St Luke, Wiveliscombe and the surrounding areas.

Meet James Matthews, our Branch Manager

"Hi, I’m James. I’ve been providing care in the Taunton area since the age of 18 and that also includes being in a managerial role. Because I’ve lived in Taunton since the age of seven, I feel that I know the area really well and a part of the wonderful community we have here."

"I joined Helping Hands as I wanted to join a provider which focuses on the quality of the service it provides over the quantity, and which always promotes an inclusive, person-centred practice, something which is the underpinning philosophy of Helping Hands. It’s fully reflective of what a modern care provider should be; providing a quality service which promotes independence and does so with inclusive person-centred care and support."

Visiting Care in Taunton

Here at Helping Hands we offer individually tailored high quality home care in Taunton, Wellington, Tiverton, Chard, Ilminster, North Petherton, Willand and the surrounding areas. Still family owned and run, we draw on over 29 years of experience, to ensure that the very best standards of support are delivered by our carers to each and every one of our customers.

James and his 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 Taunton and the surrounding areas are chosen and trained at the branch, and supported by expert guidance from the branch’s manager and a team of registered nurses. They 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 love it when the carers come because I feel like I can be myself and they’re not going to judge me.

Live-in care in Taunton

If you need a more intense level of home care in Taunton our carers are fully trained to provide you with it. Our live-in care services in Taunton 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 Taunton 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.

Friendly, qualified carers in Taunton

Our Taunton 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 ongoing 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.

My biggest achievement has been a relationship I built with a lady who had dementia. We enjoyed spending time together and I encouraged her to go out. I loved taking her shopping.
