'Carers are very good at looking for signs of infection, this is particularly important due to my father’s specific health condition. Carers have sought assistance from the district nurses where this has been necessary, to support my father’s health care needs effectively – father has built a good relationship with his carers, and has told me he is very happy and comfortable with their care.'

'Mums care needs have increased due to her reduced mobility. We worked with the carer and office team to better support our mother so she could safely stay in her own home. This has meant a lot to them and my mother as she is keen to remain at home. Care team recognised that mum required further support and worked with all of us to ensure her home is safe for her needs. Carers are very kind and caring towards our mother. Abbie is a very good people person. She has a very good one-to-one interaction with my mum.'

The staff at Radfield Home Care Chester, have chosen to support their local hospice, ‘The Hospice of the Good Shepherd’, for all future fundraising events; a charity the branch has worked closely with for a number of years. They held their first event working with the hospice which was a success, raising a total of £150.

Radfield Home Care Raises Money for Cheshire Hospice

Anna Denham, on behalf of Radfield Home Care commented,


“The morning was a pleasure to host. We had a variety of people come along and support the event. Our clients, together with their family members enjoyed the morning as well as people from the local area who have been touched by the incredible work of the hospice.”


 

Also in attendance at the event was Sue Downham, Social Prescribing Coordinator from Brightlife in Chester. Sue works with the community arranging events for the over 50’s to reduce loneliness and social isolation, who we now plan to work alongside in the future.

On behalf of Radfield Home Care Chester, we would like to thank everyone who supported and donated to this fantastic charity.

Radfield is busy planning for future events to support the ‘Hospice Of The Good Shepherd’. Our next event will be ‘Wear something Red to Work Day’, to be held on Wednesday 26th July.

The Hospice of the Good Shepherd is a respected provider of palliative care for residents of Cheshire West Chester and Deeside. They provide services free of charge to patients and families facing life limiting illness. They provide an inpatient unit, outpatient services, a day therapy centre, and offer complimentary therapies and bereavement support throughout the community as well as offering amazing support for their patient’s families.

Justin Caron, Community Fundraiser for the Hospice commented,


“I was delighted to hear that Radfield Home Care has chosen to support the Hospice. The coffee morning proved to be a resounding success. The Hospice relies on the support of our local community through events such as this and we look forward to working with Anna and the Radfield team again very soon.”


 

The Radfield Worcester branch held a cupcake sale with The Dementia Workshop Group in Droitwich (#DementiaFriends), to raise money for The Alzheimer’s Society. Everyone worked hard baking cakes, along with some lovely cake donations from Waitrose and Morrisons in Droitwich too.

Radfield Alzheimers Raise Awareness Funds

Sam Arnold, the Manager of The Dementia Workshop, commented,


“We were overwhelmed by the generosity of people who donated the cakes and are thankful to everyone who helped to sell them on the day. Carers and families really value the service we provide and their much-needed respite wouldn’t be possible without our workshop.”


 

Whilst the cupcake sale was progressing in Droitwich, the staff at the Worcester branch were out and about in the centre of Worcester, selling cakes to passersby. The office was also open for our carers and clients; teas and coffees and a tasty cake and even a competition were all on offer!

One in three of us will get Dementia, which is a disturbing statistic, so all of this fundraising is important as it helps to raise further awareness of this disease and more importantly, raise money for more research into a cure for the future.

Angela, Registered Care Manager for the Worcester branch commented,


“A big thank you to all of our carers and staff at our Radfield branch. Also, we would like to thank The Bell Inn in St John’s, The Dementia Cafe in Droitwich, not to mention Morrisons and Waitrose in Droitwich for their kind cake donations. Everyone had an amazing day, resulting in a huge amount of money raised totalling £469.18 for The Alzheimer’s Society.”

"A big shout out to Lisa and Natalea from Radfield Homecare. An Essex based company that provides support and care in the comfort of mainly elderly people's homes. I have introduced them to my 99 year old neighbour Doreen and she is delighted beyond words. Today she is having some gardening and housework done as well as a cup of tea and a chat. If anyone you know needs this type of support, I couldn't recommend these lovely people highly enough. We need to look out for our elderly friends and neighbours. Not everyone has a family to look out for them and unfortunately we are all going to be old one day!"

Kiain McKean - Director

Kiain is Director of Radfield Home Care Herefordshire & South Shropshire. He has dedicated his working life to the UK care sector for no less than 26 years, starting his career in care at the age of just 16, where he had a part-time job as a home carer, whilst studying at college full-time completing a social care course.

Due to Kiain’s Grandmother receiving poor quality care in her own home he wanted to have his own business to showcase a high quality care service he knew was possible, enabling people to be treated in the way in which he had hoped for his Grandmother.

It is his 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.

Samual Holmes - Director & Owner

Samuel had a fulfilling career as a social worker before deciding to launch Radfield Home Care Hastings and Rother. The experience taught him that chronological age is a very poor indictor of care need and that although there are many aspects of later life which are common or shared, the experience is unique to everyone.

Samuel remains passionate about supporting older people overcome difficult circumstances and believes it is vitally important to listen and prioritise people’s individual hopes and wishes when planning care. This approach is central to the way in which Radfield Home Care operates and ensures all our clients retain their sense of identity and self-worth.
