With St. Mary’s Lighthouse and Long Sands Beach just down the road, our local care team are in the heart of the Whitley Bay community. Providing flexible and professional support, our carers are here to help you live the lifestyle you want to lead, with the care you require.

Meet Alecia, our Branch Manager
Alecia’s experiences have come from working within a supported living complex, providing care and companionship to a range of customers with learning disabilities and mental health needs.
Alecia says, “I then became the care coordinator for the Helping Hands branch in Middlesbrough, where I had so many incredible and inspirational moments.
“Every staff member within Helping Hands plays a very important role in delivering an outstanding service to our customers.”
Regular home visits for families around Whitley Bay
Our visiting care starts from just 30-minutes per week, all the way through to overnight stays and full-time live-in care.
Visiting care is an ideal solution if you know that you need extra help but don’t want to go through the upheaval of moving into nursing or residential care. Our Whitley Bay carers will work around your timetable, whilst covering:
- Personal care: Helping you wash and dress, while always giving you privacy and space.
- Administering medication and ensuring you’re safe when swallowing tablets.
- Providing support with aspects of complex care including stomas and catheters.
- Preparing food, housekeeping and companionship
Though the practical support inside your home is very important, helping you when you’re out in the community is also a great way to preserve your independence.
The carers have been reliable, caring, friendly and efficient, not only to mam but to the rest of our family. Their efficiency has been commended by our doctor and the district nurses.

Constant, ongoing live-in care around Whitley Bay
Over time, you might feel that you need a more consistent care solution, or you might be concerned that a friend or relative is struggling to manage. Live-in care can provide peace of mind and reassurance.
A live-in carer, handpicked by us, will move into your property alongside you, making sure you have everything you need to remain comfortable and safe.
We understand it’s a major step to welcome a new person into your family home, that’s why our local managers help you settle in with your new carer, making sure they don’t only meet your requirements, but match your personality too.
Whether you need help using a mobility aid, using a bath or shower, continence care or support using a hoist, our carers are fully-trained in all aspects of care. Alternatively, you may need an extra hand around the house – our carers can help with household tasks and pet care, if required.
One-to-one dementia care from our specialists
Dementia affects everyone in different ways and can be a lot to take on for a family. The care that’s required should always be unique, that’s why our tailored support service enables people with dementia to remain in their homes, where they feel most comfortable.
We’ve been caring for people with different types and stages of dementia for 30 years, with independence being our priority. Throughout our award-winning training, our carers are fully-trained in dementia care, ensuring each customer is given high-quality, specialist care.
Whether you need gentle encouragement or reminders to take medication, or constant supervision, our advisors can help you understand the support available to you and your family and how it will fit in with your routine and lifestyle.
Advanced care for complex conditions
High-level and complex conditions often need specific care. Our carers can support with conditions such as cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, tetraplegia, and can assist with your recovery following a brain or spinal injury.
After going through specific training, our carers can assist with catheters, stomas and tracheostomies. The Whitley Bay team will do everything possible to help you retain your independence; we’ll even hand-pick your carer to ensure your hobbies and interests are matched.

Care for short-term breaks
Constantly supporting a loved one can be a lot to take on and incredibly overwhelming. If you’re juggling a full-time job, parenting or other commitments, short-term relief is an ideal option.
Whether it’s delivered over a period of weeks or days, respite care allows you to take some time and recharge your batteries but still be assured your loved one is receiving care which meets their needs.
Respite care is also a great way to see how care in your home can work in the long run. Or you might have to leave your loved one to resolve another family emergency. In most cases, we can arrange care to start swiftly, with as little disruption as possible.
Our trained carers based in Whitley Bay
Delivering outstanding care and following the latest practices is at the front of everything our carers do. To make sure they’re fully equipped, each carer completes a thorough training programme covering a host of areas including personal care, safety in the home and medication administration.
Alongside our award-winning training programme, our carers go through a full background and DBS check, and because our carers are recruited and employed by us, we can also take care of all paperwork involved.
Like all of our branches, our Whitley Bay office is regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), meaning we’re fully committed to always providing a safe and secure service.
