Rediscovering life with home care in Ilkley, Skipton & Otley: Mrs Shaw’s new shoes

The beauty of home care support is not only about keeping people healthy, but it’s also about maintaining their happiness and ensuring a quality of life that they appreciate. At Radfield Home Care Ilkley, Skipton & Otley, we understand how important it is for the older generation to take part in their favourite activities, bringing normalcy, happiness and more meaning into their lives. Understanding Mrs Shaw’s aspirations, under our professional care, she recently experienced a way to find joy in the simplest things that matter to her.

The journey to finding the perfect fit

Recently, our dedicated Care Professionals have been working closely with 92-year-old Mrs Shaw who lives at a Cliff Vale residential home after suffering multiple fractures due to a traffic collision in February 2022. Fondly remembering her active lifestyle and regular outings with her daughters-in-law, Mrs Shaw expressed her desire to buy a new pair of shoes.

Working diligently with Mrs Shaw, after several failed trips, Natalie Nutting and Ryan Pask of the Radfield Home Care Ilkley, Otley & Skipton office finally helped her find the perfect shoe shop. The joy on Mrs Shaw’s face when she found her perfect pair was truly gratifying. Sipping coffee at a local café afterwards, she happily expressed how contented she felt. Mrs Shaw turned to Natalie and said: “You know, I just had a right nice feeling knowing that I’ve got my new shoes.”

An affirmation of the personalised home care services here at Radfield that go beyond health needs.

A Taste of Favourite Delights

But that’s not all. Our Care Professionals also accompanied Mrs Shaw on a trip to enjoy fish and chips – her favourite food that she hadn’t indulged in two years. Our focus on enriching Mrs Shaw’s life with routine activities that she loved showcases the attentiveness of our home care services that we pride ourselves on.

Aiding Community Access through Personalised Home Care

Our personalised approach extends beyond Mrs Shaw. While our residents may be partially or completely reliant on us due to physical restrictions or other reasons, we make sure they actively participate in their community with our help. At Radfield Home Care Ilkley, Skipton & Otley, we believe every individual deserves to enjoy a sense of independence and remain connected to what matters most.
