Since Helping Hands was founded in 1989, we’ve supported over 40,000 people who wanted to live their best life possible while remaining in the home they love. We’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which means you can trust us to deliver the highest standards of care to you or your loved ones. Talk to us today to discover the types of home care we could be giving to you or your family members.
We can support you in and around Wellingborough, Irchester, Earls Barton, Rushden, Finedon Higham Ferrers and the surrounding areas.
Wellingborough was originally an Anglo-Saxon settlement named “Wendelingburgh” although by the time of the Domesday Book in 1086 it had become “Wendelburie”. It had grown by the time of King John, who granted it a royal market charter in 1201. While Wellingborough began as a small settlement, it is predicted to have enormous growth by 2031, with resources for housing and improved rail links to encourage more commuters.
Unparalleled growth is something that Helping Hands can identify with, as we have grown in an unprecedented fashion since we were founded in 1989. Our live-in and visiting care services, which start from only 30 minutes per week, ensure that we will be supporting the local area for many years to come.
"Hello, I’m Sarah the Branch Manager for the Northampton Branch of Helping Hands. It is my job to ensure that all runs smoothly in the branch, that customers receive the highest quality care and that carers are fully supported in their role. In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and visiting the seaside. Both of my sons are in the England Street Dance Team, so I spend a lot of time travelling and watching them in competitions which I love!"
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.

Talk to us today about visiting care starting from just 30 minutes per week.
When you’re considering full-time care you may feel that your only alternative is to move to a residential or care home, but with Helping Hands, having live-in care is a cost-effective alternative which means you can also remain in the home you love. Whether you are living with complex needs that require the support of our clinical nurse team and specialist carers, or you would just like some around the clock companionship, we can support you fully. We’ll undertake your medication, personal care and everything else you need to ensure you’re always living your best life possible.
Our carers are highly motivated to go above and beyond for their customers because we directly employ them and look after their wellbeing. We feel our carers are the heart of our business and consequently we value them, because our carers are the ones who go out into their communities and ensure our customers get to live their best lives at home. If we were an agency we’d be more concerned with charging our customers referral fees and extra costs for matching you with a suitable carer, but because we’re a professional and long-established company, all that comes as standard with Helping Hands.
With domiciliary care from Helping Hands, you’re always in control of your care and your life, thanks to our individualised care packages and your personalised support plan.

You’re always in control of the care you receive, so if you’d benefit from some support at home with personal care, medication, housework or so much more, talk to us today.
Whilst you may not need care straight away after a diagnosis of dementia, it’s natural that thoughts will turn to who is going to care for you in the long-term as your condition progresses. We’re a dementia specialist company because at Helping Hands we have been caring for our customers living with dementia for over 30 years. Remaining at home in the place you love most can be highly beneficial as your condition progresses as the familiar surroundings can help to reduce your confusion and anxiety, so talk to us today about dementia care.
If you or your family are trying to find emergency care due to you having an unexpected hospital discharge or needing care at home after an accident, we can have one of our carers supporting you within 24 hours. If your needs aren’t quite that urgent but your family are planning a holiday, or your regular carer needs a break, we can ensure that all goes smoothly via our respite care service. Our carers come to you in your own home as often or as little as you need, and they’ll ensure that every aspect of your care runs smoothly, as if your regular carer had never left.
Our flexible packages of elderly care can really help to support you at home if you’re struggling with daily tasks. As we get older, certain things can become more difficult, such as housework, personal care or making ourselves meals, and we often won’t talk to family about it as we’re worried that they’re already too busy. Our professional and empathetic carers go above and beyond to support you at home and ensure that you get to live your best life possible, so don’t struggle on at home, talk to us today about elderly care.
Our compassionate and empathetic carers go above and beyond every single day to ensure that our customers get the very highest levels of person-centred care possible and when we select our carers, we only ever accept people who share our ethos for delivering professional levels of expert service. We train our carers well and offer them opportunities for professional development which sees a mutual loyalty having developed between Helping Hands and our carers from the very start of our 30-year history. We’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, as well as accredited by some of the biggest names in health care such as Dementia Action Alliance and Parkinson’s UK, so you can have full confidence in our ability to care for you.
