Radfield Home Care Chingford & Loughton was established in February 2023 by Director/Owner Adam Simons. Adam prides himself on providing an excellent service for clients with care that makes a real difference.
Adam has always been keen to give something back to his local communities and through voluntary work, he discovered just how rewarding, humbling and empowering it is to help others.
In terms of his career, Adam comes from a background in finance, having been a stockbroker with large investment banks. He has previously run teams across Europe and Asia. In the year 2000, Adam moved across the globe, settling in Tokyo, Japan. In 2005 he returned to London to manage a team that spanned Europe. In 2008 he returned to Japan where he stayed until 2015.
Adam has launched Radfield Home care Chingford & Loughton to provide the best quality home care possible and to make a difference in people’s lives. Through delivering fantastic care, he can help change the lives of clients, their families and our Care Professionals.
To help achieve this, Adam aims to make Radfield Home Care Chingford & Loughton the employer of choice, offering first-class training and support on all levels both professionally and personally, to help enable Care Professionals to deliver the very best care possible.
Speaking on his experiences volunteering and working with charitable organisations, Adam said:
“I Initially started volunteering with Jewish Care as a meals on wheels driver and then for the same charity I also became a telephone befriender to three older people. Late 2020, I joined the Samaritans as a listening volunteer and subsequently was asked to join the leadership team in my local branch. During the Christmas holiday season, I regularly volunteer with Crisis to help homeless people.
“The feeling I get from volunteering, helping others and giving back, has helped me through some very difficult times. It is incredibly rewarding and gives me a real sense of purpose. Setting up a home care business feels like a natural progression from the voluntary work I’ve been doing the past few years. I have a strong desire and a passion to do everything I can to help others.”
Adam also has a keen interest in boxing and endurance running, interests in which he has achieved impressive accolades:
“In 2013 I fought in a white-collar boxing event in Tokyo, in front of 400 people, having never boxed previously. It was a very prestigious black-tie event, to help raise money for local charities. In 2021 I ran my first-ever marathon, the London Marathon, to raise money for WellChild, who support seriously ill children”
