Radfield Home Care is a family company which was established in 2008 by brother and sister team Alex Green and Dr Hannah MacKechnie, a qualified GP. They themselves grew up in a residential home for elderly people so have had a lifetime of caring for others and understanding the unique needs of people as they grow older. Alex and Hannah have always strived to ensure that we provide the highest standard of care to our clients and that Radfield Home Care also offers the best employment opportunities. We do this by really looking after our clients and carers, in short treating them as if they are part of the family.

Owner/ Director

Kiain McKean 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.
