'Helping Hands are truly the best care company we have ever had.  The care is second to none, we would be lost without them.  They care for our son as if he were their own.  I wish someone had told us about them years ago.  They even came an helped when our son was in intensive care.  They do all of his cares (medical and physical) and he now sees the carers as friends as well as helpers.'

'We have been with Helping Hands since they first started and have always found their support and consideration of our family's need exceptional.  They have always tried to accommodate us, even when we've had a crisis and notify them at short notice.  Management and staff are caring and understanding .  I don't know how we'd survive without them and would recommend them to any family who require such support.'

 'Helping Hands are unique as a care company because they do actually care!  They have transformed our lives and the carers they have provided for our daughters care are of the highest standard both in their practical work but also their integrity and professional working practice.  Helping Hands listen to our needs and always respond to the best of their capabilities.  We feel very supported but more importantly, we feel our welfare matters very much to them.  They epitomize how all care companies should be run.'

 'The support we have received from Helping Hands goes above and beyond what anyone would expect from a care agency, especially since the unexpected death of my partner. Without their support, our family wouldn't have coped. There is always someone willing to listen and help in what ever way they can, whatever your problem and we can't thank them enough.'

'I am very satisfied with the service that I receive for my 19 year old son, who has Autism.  The support worker is very caring and makes a lot of effort to research places of interest to visit when she takes him out during the holidays.  She also supports him very well at a weekly club.'

'As a family we are overjoyed with the respect, love and understanding you have given our son. He is excited every time he knows someone is coming to play (look after him) day or night. Hand on heart we really couldn't ask for better people. You truly have changed his life (and ours) for the better. Your work ethics, company and carers are second to none. Thank you so much.'

'We first met Helping Hands of Harrogate in the summer of 2011, when we were in particular need of additional help.  The help and support we received from Chris and Becky (of Helping Hands of Harrogate) at this time was exceptional with them working over and above what was required of them.  This was fundamental in enabling us to get through a challenging period. 
Helping Hands of Harrogate staff continue to support us and we have found them to be both professional and flexible in their support.  They have been invaluable in making the challenges of caring for our disabled child and family more manageable.  We are confident in the knowledge should we require further support at short notice for any reason, Helping Hands of Harrogate will do their utmost to help'

'As a parent of a severely physically and sensory/developmentally disabled child, I was adament I would not have carers in our home.  This was purely because I was so concerned about her not being able to communicate if she was worried or scared.  She is very complex in her care needs and I was worried no one would get to know her enough to care for her fully.
From the first meeting, although still sceptical, I was assured enough by the confidence and background of Chris and his staff to give the carers a chance.
We have a superb carer who we think the world of and who I know thinks the world of our daughter.  I have no doubt about the standard of care being received.  Thankyou so very much.'

'Helping Hands of Harrogate provide care for my son and daughter to enable me to attend rehearsals of the Military Wives choir as my husband is usually away.  I have found this care of a very high quality.  My son has autism but the carers have a care plan in place and there have been no issues.  I feel happy and confident to leave my children in their care.
My time at choir is exceptionally beneficial to me.  I have been able to take part in the recording of the Military Wives album and the filming of the video.  I have also been able to travel down to London and sing on the ITV 'This Morning' programme and also on QVC; things which I never in my wildest dreams thought I would have the opportunity to do. 
Without being able to attend rehearsals, I could not have had these opportunities, so a huge thank you from the bottom of my heart.'

'Helping Hands are truely that.  From the first assessment, Corey's needs were what was most important to us as well as them and straight away we knew this company were different.  Besides the kind, gentle and respectful way he was asked what he wanted from the carers and what things they needed to learn to keep him safe, he was always the most important person to them.
Our weekends are now a joyful time which he counts the days down to and I can sleep knowing he is safe, happy and enjoying the evening with his new friends.
Helping Hands have truly changed our lifes.  Now it is Corey's happiness that comes first and not his medical condition which is all he has been judged on from other companies.  As a family we can not recommend them enough, they really are a god send.'
