About Caring Hands

Caring Hands is family-owned business that has been delivering exceptional home care throughout Lancashire since 2010.  As time has progressed, we have carefully grown the operation to ensure our standards have remained at the highest possible level, whilst incorporating an established domestic cleaning business and a lifeline service into our expanding organisation.

With quality of care comes quality of life

Our core values of promoting dignity, independence, trust and respect are at the heart of everything we do.  We work with our clients to offer a service tailored to individual needs, however much or little is required.  This ability to draw on what the clients need, combined with our experience in delivering various types of home care, is what sets up apart from our competitors.

We know that situations can change very quickly, meaning a flexible approach and constant re-evaluation is essential to ensure our customers remain happy.  We maintain our exceptional standards through regular and open communication with our customers, and we’re available when you need us most.
