Whether you’re looking for short daily visits or full-time live-in care, you need to know that you or your loved ones are being cared for by a company with decades of experience of supporting people in their own homes. Founded in 1989, Helping Hands have branches across England and Wales, and we’ve had thousands of customers trust us with their care at home. Why not discover why our CQC ratings are so good by contacting our customer care team today?
We cover areas in and around Wombourne, including Stirchley, The Bratch, Blakeley, Himley and Smestow.
Wombourne has Anglo-Saxon origins, part of the large kingdom of Mercia which was settled by Angles. The area most likely gets its name from Burna one of the terms for a stream used in the earliest Anglo-Saxon place names, and the stream was presumably itself called the Wom Bourn.
This part of the country has many things to benefit it and now there’s one more, as Helping Hands have established ourselves close by. We offer visiting care at home from just 30 minutes a week and live-in for people who prefer someone there around the clock, so why not get in touch today and discover how we could be supporting you or your loved ones?
"I have worked in care for 25 years and started my care career in Cornwall where I worked with adults with learning disabilities. When I moved back to Wolverhampton, I continued to work in this sector and progressed to a senior carer in domiciliary care. I have been a registered manager for the last three and a half years.
"I have two children and most of my time outside of work is spent with them. I enjoy spending time in the garden, and since lockdown I have taken a keen interest in gardening and baking."
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 100 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.
Whether you’d prefer visiting care from just 30 minutes a week, perhaps for some help with housework, a walk in the local park or a friendly cup of tea and a chat, we can support you. Our carers are dedicated to ensuring that you get the help you need to live your life to the fullest, so whether it’s vacuuming or meal preparation, personal care or medication, we’ll be there to provide visiting home care.
Your live-in carer can be as involved in your life as you want them to be. You might like someone keeping you company around the clock or you may prefer your carer keeping a lower profile, but whichever is your preference we will always respect it. Your live-in carer will know when to give you space or when you want them right by your side so never worry that your house won’t feel like your own anymore. Live-in care is there to help you achieve the life you want while remaining in the home you love, so it will always complement your lifestyle, not dominate it.
Traditional home care agencies mostly work on an introductory basis; you pay them a fee and they ‘introduce’ you to a carer who they feel will suit your needs. While this kind of service may suit some people, you will often have to take on the role of employer for that carer, with all the associated costs and worries of ensuring they are fully compliant with UK employment regulations. Helping Hands isn’t an agency; as opposed to other agencies, we directly employ all of our carers so that all you have to think about is being taken care of and all your carer needs think about is your wellbeing.
When dementia is diagnosed it can be a worrying and uncertain time for both the person and their loved ones, however we can help. We’ve been a dementia specialist for over 30 years and we really know how to support people living with Alzheimer’s, vascular and many other forms of the disease. Having to move into uncertain surroundings can make confusion and anxiety worse in some cases, so why not remain at home and receive the highest standards of dementia care?
If you’re not sure whether having someone come to your home and care for you is what you want, why not consider respite care for a few days to see how it makes you feel? Alternatively, respite care can be perfect if your regular carer needs to take a break, your family are planning a holiday or if you need support in an emergency. In the most urgent of cases, we can have care in your home within 24 hours, so if you need care in the short-term, talk to us.
As we age, we often find that we slow down a little or that tasks we used to tackle with aplomb are now beyond us. If that’s the case, why not have some elderly care from the team in Wombourne? Your carer can support you with every aspect of your daily life including personal care, mobility support, meal preparation, medication, housework and supporting you in the community. If that’s not enough then they’ll happily sit and have a natter over a cup of tea too!
Our carers are really at the heart of what we do at Helping hands, if it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t be able to provide the excellent levels of care we do for our thousands of customers. Therefore, our carers are supported from the moment they join us and throughout their career, with excellent training, development opportunities and very real promotion prospects. We look after our customers too though; ensuring our carers’ references are followed up and they are DBS screened before ever being allowed in our customers’ homes. That way you and your loved ones can be sure that only the people who should be in your home are there. We are also fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission and Care Inspectorate Wales, meaning that our standards of care are completely second to none.
Every one of our carers is a dementia specialist
We are founding members of the UKHCA
