On Wednesday 18th December 2019, Radfield Home Care Havering & Brentwood invited along and brought together their wonderful clients and carers for a special Christmas celebration.



Lisa Cable, co-director commented, “It was such an honour to be able to get our clients and carers together in one place. Because we care for our later life clients in their own homes, it is quite unique to get everyone together. We are very passionate about getting our clients out and about in the community, and we take our clients out to places like the local garden centre, parks and the shops. We appreciate that some people really do just want to spend their time at home, so we made our Christmas celebration optional for our clients. We had a great response from our clients and their families and many of them came along to join in the festivities!”

Co-director Jennie Bardrick explained how they organised the party, “It really was our Deputy Care Manager, Charlotte Reed’s idea. She mentioned how we’d got our clients and carers together right at the start of our journey, and how it had been such a fantastic event, and thought we should do it again. The only challenge was the fact that we have a lot more clients and carers now! Charlotte did an incredible job in organising everything from the food to the entertainment and she has been so determined to get everyone together! Being a community home care provider, specialising in later life care, some of our clients have more limited mobility, but this didn’t stop Charlotte organising all our wonderful carers to pick up our clients and get them safely to the event and home again.”


 

The event was a huge success, a number of our clients said it was the best event they had been to in a long time and they loved the music and entertainment. All our clients and carers were mingling and sharing stories. It was lovely to see the warmth in the room and the genuine passion from our carers for what they do. Directors Lisa Cable and Jennie Bardrick made a speech to thank everyone for their support and wish everyone a merry Christmas, and in true style, Lisa got tearful seeing everyone come together! It was truly humbling to see so much happiness and love in one room!



Quotes from our client's families:


“Thank you for organising a very enjoyable Christmas party. Mum thoroughly enjoyed it and I think it was a good time for all who attended.”

“I just wanted to let you know how much we all enjoyed yesterday’s Radfield Xmas party and thank you for all your hard work in organising it. There was such a lovely warm atmosphere, it was a very happy occasion. It was great to meet so many of Mum’s carers, they were all so kind coming over to her for a chat and a hug!”

Quote from Charlotte Reed, Deputy Care Manager, who organised the event:


“What an amazing day, my amazing team and amazing clients all in one room. The room was bursting with kindness and the feeling of genuine care for each other... I for one am #proudtocare
