Mandy Hands

Founder of Hands on Care

Hands on Care was founded in April 2011 by Mandy Hands. Mandy worked for a care agency that lost its contract for the local authority. For several years, Mandy had been the main carer for a number of clients and, therefore had built up a strong, personal relationship with them.

Consequently, many of her clients did not want to change to a new provider, or another carer, Mandy created Hands on Care out of her client’s desire to keep her as their main carer.

Hands on Care Homecare Services Limited was established in March 2017 and HOC Training Limited was established in September 2017.

Mandy says she started Hands on Care to make a difference, to help people make the most of their lives and get the best quality of care they need. But most importantly to enable peoples wishes to stay within their own homes for as long as possible.
