Visiting home care in York

Here at Helping Hands we offer individually tailored high quality home care in York, Earswick, Bishop Thorpe, Dunnington, Tadcaster and the surrounding areas. Still family owned and run, we draw on over 28 years of experience, to ensure that the very best standards of support are delivered by our carers to each and every one of our customers.

The team of dedicated carers across York and the surrounding areas are chosen and trained at the branch, supported by expert guidance from a team of registered nurses and myself. We draw on our extensive knowledge of the area, having first launched Helping Hands in Warwickshire in 1989.

Live-In Care in York

If you need a more intense level of home care in York our carers are fully trained to provide you with it. Our live-in care services in York mean that one of our carers can be there to help you around the clock. If you have a progressive medical condition or have been recently injured and need support around the home, one of our carers can give you the extra support you need. If your medical condition requires that you take medication in the middle of the night, one of our carers can be there to remind you to take it, and help to administer it.

You can be confident in the expert knowledge of our carers. All of our local York carers have been fully trained at our very own Centre of Excellence, and have a wide knowledge of complex condition-led care. All Helping Hands carers are DBS checked and trained to help you or your loved one remain independent in their home, whilst giving you the level of live-in care that you require.

Friendly, qualified carers in York

Our York carers are committed to providing you or your loved one with the very best possible care. To ensure that they can deliver your care to the highest standard, we are committed to providing them with a comprehensive programme of training and support.

Before beginning their work with us, all our carers take part in an intensive training programme at our Centre of Excellence. But the training does not stop there. Every Helping Hands carer takes part in on-going training to boost their knowledge and experience across a wide range of areas, from dementia care to complex care requirements.

Our carers are also committed to ensuring that you receive the best condition-led care available, and work with local GPs to understand how best to support you.
