About us

As a national home care franchise network that’s forward-looking and award-winning, we’re working with our Franchise Partners to set new standards for the quality of home care for older people.

A family-owned company

Radfield Home Care is a business built on a very clear sense of purpose. That purpose is the same today as it was more than 35 years ago when franchisors Alex Green and GP Dr. Hannah MacKechnie’s parents first set up the Radfield business as a residential care home for the elderly in Shrewsbury, Shropshire.

As the world has changed in many ways since then, the business has continued to be a leader in home care innovation. Under the vision, passion and leadership of brother and sister Alex and Hannah, Radfield Home Care is now a fast-growing, home care business, operating nationally through a network of Franchise Partners and providing exceptional care and support to clients and their families every day.

Radfield Office Team

A family business and a franchise community that cares

“We love bringing new Franchise Partners on board because it’s like adding another member to our family. We’ve run local offices ourselves, so we know what it’s like and we know what it takes. If you’re approachable, enjoy meeting new people, a good listener and also willing to put yourself forward then we’d be very keen to hear from you.  As our franchise family grows so does the impact we have and that’s what makes it such an exciting opportunity.”
