Sparking connections through language with Radfield Home Care Worcester, Droitwich & Malvern

Coming from Zimbabwe and joining the Radfield Home Care Worcester, Droitwich & Malvern team in October 2023, Bevan quickly showed keen interest in connecting with our clients. Bevan exemplifies the values of Radfield Home Care – a passion for ensuring that people are not only well cared for, but also remain connected to what matters most to them. This approach makes our Home Care services exceptional in and around Worcester.

Language: A tool for bridging gaps

Bringing his unique heritage and language, Shona, Bevan found a new and innovative way to connect with his client, Madeleine. From the onset, Madeleine showed great interest in Bevan’s origins. This spark of curiosity ignited a beautiful bond between them.

Shona classes beyond borders

Care Professional Bevan noted that teaching Madeleine some basic words in Shona could be a fun and unique way to engage and connect. For Madeleine, who lives with Parkinson’s, this language learning not only served as a cultural exchange but also as a memory booster. Alzheimer’s Society research indicates that stimulating activities like learning a new language can enhance cognitive abilities.

Cultivating connections among our home care Worcester clients

Over the past few months, Madeleine has learned more Shona words and embraced this new cultural experience wholeheartedly. Her enthusiasm extended to writing Christmas greetings in Shona for Bevan, a gesture that thrilled him and cemented their connection.
At Radfield Home Care, we continuously work towards keeping people connected to the things that matter most to them. Our Care Professionals are dedicated to providing quality home care serving in Worcester and surrounding areas. We believe in moving beyond the provision of basic care needs to creating meaningful connections with and between our clients. The relationship between Madeleine and Bevan is a testament to this belief.
