Home Care Wigston
Helping Hands Wigston offer personalised home care and support for those who require assistance little and often or round-the-clock. Our carefully trained carers have the skills and expertise to deliver industry-approved care that is completely tailored to you.
Offering support from an experienced team of carers, our team cover Blaby, Countesthorpe, Enderby, Fleckney, Narborough, Oadby, Wigston and the surrounding areas.
Lying on the outskirts of the city of Leicester is Wigston, a district full of museums, green open spaces and unique shopping experiences. You many hear the thunder of horse hooves at Leicester Racecourse if you attend an exciting race day, or you may be immersed in the ethereal woodland environment of Leicester Botanical Gardens. Either way, you’ll be sure to find something to suit all. And if that wasn’t enough, there is also a team of Helping Hands carers who are able to provide you with flexible, empathetic care in your home.
From as little as 30-minute calls via our visiting care service or 24-hour support from our live-in care service, we’ll work with you to find the right level of care that suits you, your health care needs and your timetable. Our aim is to enable you to stay living in your beloved home and retain your independence for as long as possible.
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.
Over 160 branches across the UK means we're local to you
We are not an agency - we employ every carer directly
Get to know your carer before care starts
Family-run and experts in home care since 1989
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.
A Helping Hands home carer is there to make your life easier, no matter what your particular situation looks like. We can help with everyday household tasks like tidying up, feeding pets, sorting out grocery shopping or preparing healthy, delicious meals.
We work hard to make sure we understand you and your personal care needs clearly, and we slot in around your preferences, keeping all the daily routines and habits intact.
With over 30 years of experience under our belt, we know exactly what it takes to deliver premium visiting care to you in your home. Whether you have Parkinson’s and find it difficult to make your own meals or need someone to help you get out and about safely because you’re unsteady on your feet, we will find a care solution that works for you.
Starting from as little as 30 minutes per week, our friendly carers can pop in and support you with a whole host of things – from personal care, getting dressed, and assistance administering medication, to completing light cleaning duties, doing the laundry, and even taking you to appointments. No matter what your health needs are, we will adapt around your existing routines and make sure you have everything you need to live at home independently.
And it’s not just the practicalities that we’ll take care of; supporting you with your mental health is equally as important, and just having a friendly face that comes to see you once a day can make a real difference to your daily schedule.
If you have a long-term health condition or both of you need extra help throughout the day and night, live-in care can provide you with round-the-clock support that’s completely tailored to your needs. So, if you have cerebral palsy and need assistance with everything from getting up and dressed in the morning to leaving the house and meeting with friends and family, or if you live as an elderly couple and both need support with getting up in the night to go to the loo and again with personal care throughout the day – we’ll create a bespoke care plan around you, your needs and your preferences.
The great thing about live-in care is that you can stay living in the home you know and love, just with extra support in the form of a live-in carer. Instead of having the strict mealtimes, menus and timetables that come with some residential homes, you can choose when, where and how your care is delivered, giving you back the control over your life.
We’ll also work with you to find the very best live-in carer for you. So, not only will they have experience in the specific condition or health needs that you have, but we can match them to you in personality type too. So, if you have a penchant for history, we’ll assign you a carer that also enjoys learning about times passed and who would be happy to explore local history with you, such as the Framework Knitters Museum.
Our in-house Recruitment Team only select the very best individuals to represent our company and become Helping Hands carers. Whether they have years of care experience with different people and companies or if they have cared for a loved one for several months – the qualities we look for above all others is the ability to be kind, compassionate and to have the desire to care for others. And it’s this that truly sets our carers apart.
To ensure our carers are equipped to support all of our customers, they go through a detailed, award-winning training programme, which covers moving and handling, first aid, medication, dementia and personal care. In addition to this, they also undertake a full background check, including several references and a Disclosure Barring Service (DBS) screening, so that you can be assured that you will receive care from the highest calibre of carers.
Unlike some agencies, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This independent regulator ensures that we are safe, effective and responsive to both our customers and staff, and that we ultimately do what we say we are going to do.
We are actively collecting and monitoring our reviews and feedback for Home Care Wigston to ensure our customers receive the best possible live in and home care service.
Our Home Care Wigston branch is fully regulated and accredited by the CQC and CIW.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
