I have always been passionate about nursing with a particular interest in caring for the elderly. I have previous experience working in a nursing home and although I thrived in a busy time-pressured environment I wanted something different.
Home care meant I would have more responsibility, I would have the flexibility to make every visit a feel-good experience by achieving the necessary and allowing time for little extras to make someone’s day.
I am the Client Services Coordinator and was promoted at the beginning of 2022. I have worked for Radfield for nearly 4 years. It’s a great team to work with, everyone is very supportive, encouraging and friendly.
I chose Radfield because it’s a private home care company offering:
- One to one care
- Longer visits that allow more time to chat with clients and get to know them
- Helping older people access the community
- Very personalised visits with no two being the same
- Everyone works to a high standard
We had one client who had not had a thorough bath or shower for years. Many different approaches had been unsuccessfully tried but I managed to build a positive, trusting relationship. After years of failed attempts I supported him to have a shower which was very satisfying and something the client enjoyed. shower for the first time in years.
I also boosted the spirits of several clients with hair cuts and painting their nails during the COVID-19 pandemic.
