Our home care team, local to the Wandsworth area, provide an unparalleled array of support for countless people in the district. With over 30 years of experience in the care industry, Helping Hands stands out as a pioneer for home care services, offering all levels of care for adults of all ages, for all manner of conditions. Adhering to monitoring and regulation via the Care Quality Commission, every carer receives an exceptional standard of training to equip them for whatever requirements you need to maintain an independent lifestyle.
The team of friendly carers at our Wandsworth branch offer support across Balham, Battersea, Earlsfield, Putney Heath, Wandsworth, and the surrounding areas.
Named after the River Wandle that runs through its centre, the London Borough of Wandsworth has a mixture of open spaces, schools and theatres, with five bridges connecting it to the north of the Thames.
Carers from Helping Hands Home Care are available across the borough to provide care that is second-to-none, all whilst you remain in the comfort of your own home. Get in touch with our team to discuss your needs and we will put a package together that is suited to your requirements, from companionship to nursing care; from hourly visiting care to full-time live-in care.
“Hi, I’m Ursula. I am the Regional Care Director for London and Essex. I am responsible for the structure and support of our carers in the region, ensuring that our customers receive the seamless and compassionate service that Helping Hands is known for.
“I have worked in the healthcare sector for 12 years, but after having my children I wanted to join an industry which was close to my heart, after both of my grandparents had received care. After my previous experience I know how important it is to provide an exceptional quality of care to those who need it, and I’m incredibly proud to work for a company that does just that.”
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.

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.
For over 30 years, we have been providing care to individuals in their own homes and enabling them to retain their independence, so we really do know what it takes to deliver the very best home care.
Visiting care offers regular visits from our fully-trained carers from as little as 30 minutes per week to several hourly visits throughout the day if necessary. Care calls can be for anything from personal care, helping to administer medication or toileting needs, to household duties, cooking your tea or helping you to water your plants.
We understand how important it is for you to maintain routines and preferences whilst you’re at home – that’s why the Wandsworth team will work with you to create a care plan that’s tailored entirely to you and your requirements.
If you need more intensive support or if you are living with a complex health condition, live-in care enables you to have round-the-clock support for whatever your care needs are, giving you extra peace of mind that you’ll always have the support that you need.
As the name suggests, a carer will live with you in your home and will always be on hand should you need them. Not only will they support you with your medical and health needs, but they will build a rapport with you and become more like an extended member of the family, rather than just a carer. So, if you want to spend the afternoon at Southside Shopping Centre perusing the latest fashions or enjoy taking in the nature at Battersea Park, your live-in carer will be there with you.
We also have clinical nurse teams that work with our live-in carers who fully support more complex conditions, such as Huntingdon’s disease, spinal injuries or strokes, amongst many others. They will support your live-in carer with all aspects of your care, including catheter and stoma care, tracheostomies and PEG and NG feeding tubes. And if you find that your symptoms change and you require more support, we can quickly adapt to your needs and put extra support in place to suit you.
With nearly 850,000 individuals living with some form of dementia across the UK, it’s imperative to ensure that the appropriate dementia care is available to those who require it most. Whether your loved one has just been diagnosed with vascular dementia or are in the later stages of Alzheimer’s disease, we have the expertise and empathy to support them in the place where they love most – their home.
As a direct alternative to a care home, the Helping Hands team in Wandsworth will visit your loved one in their own home and ensure they have everything they need to feel safe and comfortable. Whether that’s visiting three times a day to help them get out of bed and showered, or if it’s simply popping in to check they’re okay and to have a cup of tea with them – we’ll create the right type of care plan that fits in with their daily routines, whilst also giving you peace of mind that there is always someone there for them.
Just because you’ve reached a certain age, it doesn’t mean that you have to leave the home you’ve lived in for years and move into residential care. With elderly care from the Wandsworth team, you can still enjoy your home comforts – just with a little extra help from their friendly carers.
Whether you need an extra pair of hands to support you with getting washed and dressed in the morning or if you live with your partner and you both struggle with your mobility, our team can provide the extra reassurance you need and help you with all manner of tasks at home, or even taking you out for the afternoon.
Being a carer is an extremely rewarding job, but it can also be extremely tiring too, particularly if you have other family members to look after and a full-time job to juggle. Respite care from the Wandsworth team will allow you to recharge your batteries and take a well-earned break, whilst we step in and provide the same high level of care your loved one would expect from you.
Respite care is also suitable if you’ve just been discharged from hospital after an illness or injury and need a little extra help with personal care and household duties. We can usually arrange care within 24 hours of your initial enquiry with us, so you will never be without care at home when you need it most.
We have been recruiting, selecting and training carers since 1989, so we really do know what it takes to make an excellent carer. The only mandatory quality that we insist of all of our new recruits having is the ability to empathise and truly want to help others; our award-winning training will do the rest in terms of upskilling our carers. Their training covers manual handling, dementia, safeguarding, first aid and personal care, ensuring that they are prepared for the wide range of different conditions and needs that we cater for.
As a regulated service, we fully comply with guidelines set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), who strictly monitor any reputable care company in England to ensure they are providing a safe, effective and responsive service. We are monitored across our company – from the carers that come to visit our many thousands of customers in their homes, to the managers and senior leadership team who look after the business as a whole.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
