In recognition of the continued commitment Radfield Home Care Wakefield and Dewsbury’s care professionals have to providing excellence in care and their dedication to clients, the team has been awarding a range of new ‘service badges’ to their care professionals.

The service badges have been designed to complement Radfields ongoing work to highlight and recognise the essential care and support provided by it’s carers and their contribution to the wider health and social care sector. The introduction of the badges supports Radfield’s ‘Caring for our Carers’™ pledge - promising to reward carers and help ensure a collaborative team that works to uphold Radfield’s commitment to ‘exceptional care by exceptional people’.

Each badge represents the length of service of each care professional and is awarded at 1, 3, 5 and 10 years intervals. This allows the opportunity for the office and fellow colleagues to mark and celebrate the important impact they have had at Radfield.

Jackie Gillen, director at Radfield Wakefield and Dewsbury describes why the service badges are so important and what it means to management to be able to present these:

“I am so proud of our fantastic team of care professionals, they have shown such dedication and commitment to our clients, their colleagues and ourselves, through a very tough year by regularly going above and beyond. We feel it is extremely important to recognise the fantastic work they all do and the huge impact they have. We are so proud of our team and hope they stay with us for years to come!”

Recipients of the one year service badges included are care professionals: Mandy Franklin, Stacey Thompson, Natalie Toomes, Amanda Merryweather and Simon Moore. With registered care manager Gemma Bristow and office administrator Megan Ainsworth also receiving their badges.

The building up of a care team who are now able to wear these service badges really demonstrates how well the team works together, and importantly, how they are able to continue to provide long term consistency of care to Radfield’s clients. The experience gained by those who have been with Radfield for a longer period is always extremely valued and readily shared with new care professionals - helping to ensure the highest level of care is provided to clients now and in the future.

Radfield Home Care Wakefield and Dewsbury is proud to award its care team with these service badges and look forward to being able to present many more in the future.
