Magdalena Zieba is our care manager for Radfield Home Care Richmond, Kingston & Hounslow. She holds a bachelor degree in Teaching English and Russian Languages and a master’s degree in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) at Westminster University in London.

Magdalena explains, “I started working in the healthcare sector 4 years ago as a junior carer. I always liked helping others, so I wanted to combine this passion with my day to day work. My drive and willingness to learn provided me with the opportunity to become a team leader and shortly after, a deputy manager of a care home. During this time, I also undertook an NVQ level 2 and 3 simultaneously, along with other internal training courses. I am now starting to work towards level 5 Diploma in Leadership in Health and Social Care.

I have found helping people maintain their independence and daily routines to be extremely rewarding. I have loved working in the care sector from the very first day. It was a truly life-changing experience for me, so developing my skills and knowledge to become a better carer and a more understanding manager has been invaluable.

Radfield’s values match mine. It’s a family run company, focusing on their clients’ independence, dignity and well-being and the family-oriented profile of Radfield made me want to join the team.

 

My Inspiration

My beloved grandma has been my true inspiration; she has always been there for me and has been my best friend since I was a little girl and I know she is very proud of the work I do.

It is really rewarding and heart-warming to see clients’ conditions improve because of the quality of care you provide. I love those moments when clients living with dementia remember your name. It makes you as a carer feel important and close to them.

It’s also very easy to get emotionally attached to clients, however, I feel very honoured to be able to spend time with clients, their family and loved ones during their last days. It’s an incredible feeling when the family of a client tells you how grateful they are for providing comfort and emotional support from the beginning of their care to the very end!
