With over 30 years of home care experience, we fully understand the importance of trust, compassion and expertise in providing a home care plan that meets your needs. Our carers will go out of their way to ensure you receive dedicated support that’s tailored to your specific needs and enhances your independence.
Plus we’re fully CQC and CIW regulated, so you know we’ll always provide a first-rate standard of care. We can also support you in Bickington, Fremington, Tawstock, Landkey, Ashford and the surrounding areas.
Weymouth has a fascinating history that encompasses heavy involvement in significant events such as the spread of the Black Death in the 14th century, the settlement of the Americas in the 17th century and the Normandy Landings during World War II.
While we can’t claim to have a history anywhere near as rich as Weymouth’s, we’ve been delivering dedicated home care to customers since 1989. With our home care packages starting from just 30 minutes a week, we’re committed to ensuring you’re able to enjoy each day as it comes.

With plans starting from as little as 30 minutes a week, our visiting care service is fully customisable to your specific needs and requirements. Our dedicated team of compassionate carers are trained to give you support where you need it most, including with medication, mobility, appointments, personal care and household tasks. We want to give you as much independence as possible so that you can continue living life the way you want to.
If you or your loved ones need round-the-clock care, we can support you in the comfort and familiarity of your own home with our live-in care service. Our live-in carers are fully trained to provide you with dedicated, compassionate and expert care, however straightforward or complex your requirements. In addition to supporting you with housework and personal care, they can also provide you with companionship and reassurance. Of course, we respect the need for personal space and privacy, so our carers will also take care to be discreet and unintrusive.
We’ve been providing domiciliary care to our customers for over 30 years, so when you have live-in or visiting care from us you know you’re in expert hands. We will design a bespoke package of care around your specific needs and requirements, ensuring you have control over your routine and are able to remain comfortable in the familiar surroundings of your own home.
We’re a better home care option than a home care agency because we go the extra mile in ensuring we have the highest standards of care and the most compassionate, suitable carers. Unlike agencies, we employ our carers directly. We place great importance on looking after our carers properly, because they’re the ones who make our care provision so exceptional. Being a private home care provider also means you won’t get any hidden fees or complex pricing structures from us.
A dementia diagnosis can feel like a hammer blow, and immediately raises questions about how care needs may arise as life inevitably changes. At Helping Hands, we have over 30 years’ experience in providing people living with dementia with the right level of support and care every step of the way whilst living in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of their own home. Our expert team of dementia carers will ensure your personalised dementia care plan is designed specifically to your wishes and requirements, giving you peace of mind that you’ll be supported in just the way you want when the time comes for care.
It’s natural to get to a stage in life where household tasks become more difficult and more time consuming than they used to be. Helping Hands provide specialised elderly care that relieves the pressure on you and your family members through flexible, bespoke care packages. Our elderly care includes assistance with various tasks as specified by you, including housework, meal preparation, laundry, personal care and medication.
Respite care from Helping Hands allows you to receive flexible short-term care from our superb carers when you most need it. It might be that your regular carer suddenly becomes unavailable, a family member goes on holiday, or you’re discharged from hospital earlier than anticipated. We can typically provide emergency care cover within 24 hours to help you in any way needed, allowing you to continue with your normal routine.
We’re extremely proud of our carers, and we believe them to be the best in England and Wales. We have a very careful and selective recruitment process which means we only employ carers who are committed to providing dedicated, compassionate, person-centred care. We ensure all our carers receive thorough training that’s been curated over our 30-plus years of providing care to thousands of customers. In addition, we’re fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, which means we’re fully committed to delivering the very highest standards of care every day.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
