Our Story

Husband and wife team, James and Stefania Beech, owners and directors of Radfield Home Care Stamford, Peterborough & Rutland gained a wealth of experience in different fields prior to launching their Radfield Home Care branch in Stamford, Lincolnshire.

James has spent 15 years working in the healthcare sector, the last 10 of which were as a Regional Director for Ramsay Health Care’s private hospital business. This has developed his interest and experience in running a truly care centred business and equipped him with a good understanding of the operational and regulatory environment in health and social care.

Stefania has worked as a self-employed language teacher for the past 20 years. During this time, she has enjoyed caring for and nurturing young children and gained solid experience of running her own small business.

James & Stefania are both actively involved in their local community. They are members of their local tennis club and captain teams in league competitions. Stefania is a member of Stamford Bridge Club and has recently convinced James to join and start bridge lessons. They both enjoy keeping fit at the local gym and, in James’s case, running. They both like reading and keeping abreast of current affairs. They have 3 children, all now young adults living away from home

Both James and Stefania have experienced the challenges of supporting ageing parents first-hand. James explains, “Stefania’s Swiss mother lived in Geneva with no family support until her death, so the difficulty of being able to ensure that the right level of high quality and caring support was available at the right time was something that really struck a chord with us. It inspired our desire to provide a high-quality home care service in a community which we both love.” James & Stefania hope to welcome you as part of the Radfield family, whether as a client or carer very soon.

We aim to be the best at what we do and we will strive to go the extra mile for all our clients and carers. Our office is open 9:00am to 5:00pm Monday to Friday and we are always available out of hours on the office phone number - 01780 755 722.
