A satisfying and rewarding contribution to society

I wanted to share with you all, the story behind why I became a carer for Radfield Home Care Stafford. I began working for Radfield Home Care over two years ago and have since gone on to become an integral part of the care team in the Stafford branch.


What has been the inspiration for a career in care?

I was born in Slovakia and spent my early years in a small town called Ruzomberok. I spent a lot of my younger years helping care for my aging grandparents, and with this experience and passion for caring I am now doing a job a love with Radfield.

I left Slovakia at the age of 21 and travelled to America to begin working for Princess Cruises. It was whilst working on the cruise liners where I also found my passion for travelling and loved working and interacting with people, something that I still love doing today.

Stafford became my home town twelve years ago, and after working as a warehouse operative and then for The Lewis Partnership in Stafford, I came across Radfield Home Care on an internet job site.


Why Radfield Home Care?

The moment I arrived at the branch for an interview, I instantly felt that Radfield promoted family values, and after a short time of working for them, I began to feel like part of the Radfield family. All of my colleagues are kind and friendly and the clients that I care for are brilliant.


What are your aspirations?

I am working towards NVQ Level 3 in Health & Social Care whilst working for Radfield, which I am really proud of. I enjoy travelling in my free time and spending time in the kitchen learning new recipes and trying different foods.

Working for Radfield and doing the job I do, gives me huge satisfaction and a sense of pride. The moment I leave a client's home, knowing I have left them with a smile on their face is something that I love. I know then, how rewarding and important my contribution to society really is.

The flexibility of the role allows me to do the things that I love such as seeing the world with my loved ones with recent trips including seeing the Taj Mahal in India and Dublin in Ireland. Being able to balance travelling, with a job that I love doing means the world to me.
