River Exe Healthcare is a family run business, dedicated to enhancing the well-being of the individuals and communities we care for.

Our History

Established as a family business in 1986, under the name Helping Hands Care, our care has built a strong reputation for delivering compassionate care and support to our valued clients.

The team has continued to grow and evolve, reaching further across East Devon, opening a Honiton office to be a base for those further east in Devon.

In 2023 we rebranded to become the business we are today, River Exe Healthcare; this enabled us to continue to grow and expand our services, with a brand, look and feel aligned to our vision for the future.

River Exe Healthcare represents our commitment to being a trusted and reliable healthcare provider, rooted in the values of CARE- Compassion, Advocating for our clients, Respect and Excellence.


Helping Hands Care is started as a family run business providing care in the Exmouth area.


Helping Hands Care comes under new ownership but remains under the leadersip of a family run business.


River Exe Healthcare becomes the new name, enabling the company to expand and grow regionally.

"All the staff very helpful, particularly the caring staff. They go the extra mile, and I can assure you all it is very much appreciated."
