Following your passion, your values and beliefs is the perfect recipe for success for Kiain McKean, Director of Radfield Home Care, Herefordshire & South Shropshire.

Kiain has worked in the care sector for over 26 years, starting his career in care at the age of 16, supported by a further education course in care. Kiain has worked in many different care settings, providing care and support for all age groups and needs.

More recently Kiain’s career focussed on the residential and domiciliary services for adults with learning disabilities as a Locality Manager for over 12 years, proudly maintaining a CQC ‘Good’ rating throughout this period. Kiain also found time to complete a number of care specific courses, obtaining both his NVQ 4 in Care Management and level 5 in Leadership Management.

Kiain’s passion for caring for others and making a difference to someone’s life was ignited after Kiain sadly lost his grandmother after receiving poor quality care in her own home. Kiain was even more determined to create a high quality, person centred home care business in his Grandmother's honour to ensure no other family experienced the issues his family did with his own Grandmother.

Kiain comments, “I wanted to have my own business, creating a platform to provide a high-quality care service to those living in their own homes and to treat my clients in the way in which we had hoped for with our Grandmother. It’s my belief and passion that we should treat and look after those we care for in the same way that we wish to be looked after ourselves.”

Kiain’s business limited name is ‘Gracemeres’, his Grandmother’s old home address; a place which holds fond memories for Kiain growing up.

Kiain was straight away struck with Radfield Home Care’s core values and once again ignited Kiain’s passion for care. Kiain comments, “Radfield’s core values mean a lot to me and something I feel very strongly about. We are a family, we are proud to care, and we are on your side, are so important to making people feel valued. Not only valuing our staff and the clients we support and care for, but also to me as a franchisee. I knew straight away that Radfield Home Care was the right for me.”
