Residence Facility Support

Flexible Support

Living in an RCFE has many benefits! Often, Independent Living falls short of providing the day-to-day care and support that you need. Helping Hands is there to fill in the gaps and save you money when Independent Living doesn’t provide enough support and Assisted Living is more than you need.

In-Home Care

Loving Care

Honoring mom’s request to stay in her own home was the primary motivation for Helping Hands’s creation in 2011. We know how important this is to our client’s peace of mind and overall well being. Providing competent, reliable and compassionate care is why so many families switch to Helping Hands in-home Senior Living services and stay with us for years!  We are committed to listening to our clients needs and matching them with the right caregivers.

24/7 or Overnight Care

Uniquely Affordable

Did you know: According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Council on Aging…. “falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults”? The risk is even greater at night when visual cues and limited eyesight increase the possibility of falling. Having an alert caregiver on hand is the best way to prevent a potentially disastrous accident.

What makes us qualified to work with your loved one? We are committed to caring – not the financial bottom line. Our caregiving staff is professionally trained in the fundamentals of senior health care and required to attend yearly training updates. Most caregivers are hired with a minimum of 1 year experience, and are often CNAs. Reference and background checks are performed before hire and all staff are required to maintain their HCA (home care aide) licenses. Beyond that, we encourage and provide resources for staying up-to-date with the latest information relating to senior health care. Our office is open to caregivers and clients alike for any range of support issues that may arise. We know that being a part of this community in Santa Barbara means nurturing relationships and we are proud to be a part of a network of resources here. We develop and actively promote a culture of open, honest communication, respect and cooperation with everyone we interact with. We work with families everyday who just want their loved ones to be happy and safe in their own home. If you’ve ever been disappointed, let down or frustrated navigating this industry, we’re here to change your opinion of senior living services by being better. Get in touch with us today to learn all about Helping Hands Group and what we can do for you!

  • Do you know at 99 years old you can still make new friends.  I have become good friends with Rick the owner of Helping Hands Group.  I see Rick or one of his great staff a couple times everyday and they are always helpful and accommodating with all my needs, and they do so with a smile and a kind word.  I enjoy seeing Rick, and it is a relief to know I can count on Helping Hands

  • The care, compassion, and understanding of Helping Hands Group goes well beyond their excellent daily care programs.  The help they are providing for my brother is greatly benefiting him, and has allowed me to move back to Santa Barbara and focus on my own life while knowing Steve is in great hands

  • I want to thank you and your team for all your care. We could not have managed without your help and would recommend you and your team to anyone needing assistance with a loved one. Thank You.
