Crucial care at home for our older relations
Radfield Home Care specialises in the care of older people in the community and aims to provide a reliable, individually tailored service which promotes independence and enables people to live at home for as long as possible.
Director, Samuel Holmes, is a qualified social worker and established the company after identifying a need for a local home care provider which listens to its clients, understands their hopes for the future, and delivers a service which meets their expectations.
Samuel explained “Although my career was tremendously rewarding, I repeatedly encountered older people struggling to find good quality home care which can result in social isolation, unnecessary visits to hospital or even admission to residential care. My experience is that this is not what older people want and was the inspiration behind launching Radfield Home Care in the area where I grew up”
Samuel added, “We support people to meet far more than just basic practical needs and believe good quality home care has the potential to provide the opportunity to develop real relationships, meet friends, and maintain a presence in the community. Our carers are therefore selected on their ability to be friendly and sociable as well as having the capacity to care. Our thorough induction programme also ensures our carers are competent to work independently and maintain the high standards expected of them”.
The services Radfield Home Care provide are completely flexible and can offer short term support after a hospital admission, respite for family or carers, help to access the community, or ongoing daily care.
Samuel went onto say, “We never deliver care until we have met our clients and carry out a thorough assessment to identify individual strengths and needs. This careful process prioritises people’s wishes and enables us to develop a bespoke care plan for everyone.”
Radfield Home Care is based in Battle and services Hastings, Bexhill, St Leonards, Battle, Rye and all surrounding villages.
