Established in 2001, Radis started as a small local provider of visiting care services primarily for older people. Underpinned by a strong Vision and strong set of Values Radis has grown to become a leading provider of care across many regions of England and Wales, supporting people of all ages and with a wide spectrum of needs in many different community setting
Radis supports many thousands of people to live independently in their own homes, providing a wide range of care and support services, for people with diverse backgrounds and needs. Each person is treated as an individual and our service tailored to them.
Radis Community Care shares a set of values that are common across the whole of the Radis Group. These values reflect the views of our staff and were created with their valued input.
We will promote and protect these values in pursuit of our Group vision.
We expect ourselves and our colleagues, everywhere in our organisation, to behave in a way that is consistent with these values.
Our company values were developed from within, by employees from each area of the services we provide to ensure that they reflected the company’s approach in every aspect of care provision. It is the belief in valuing people that ensures Radis is considered so highly by employees and customers alike.
Working responsibly with communities
We passionately believe in being a socially responsible provider. Indeed, one of our values is ‘Social Responsibility’ and so it lies at the very core of our culture and way of conducting ourselves.
We are not only committed to making a positive contribution to the local communities where we provide services, but as a provider of services across England and Wales, we also take seriously our wider responsibilities to work in ethical, responsible and socially conscious ways and as an integral part of the national infrastructure that allows people to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.
We pledge to:
- Involve people
- Protect the environment
- Recruit and train local people
- Support Charities and volunteering
- Work ethically
- Support communities to thrive
Live-in is unlike other types of care, where a fully trained carer stays with you in your own home, rather than just popping in to visit. This means that you will have access to flexible support through the day or even overnight when you need it, with the peace of mind of knowing a helping hand is close by.
You may see moving into a care home as your only option, but Radis’ Live-in service may be just the alternative you’re looking for to help you stay independent your own home, where you want to be.
Having a professional carer staying in your home means that they can be flexible and fit around your needs and preferences.
Typically, your carer will be able to be at hand for 10 or more hours per day, fitting their breaks around you, and able to respond promptly should you need support unexpectedly.
By working in this flexible way, live-in care is a practical solution for many people who have changing needs or may need the reassurance of help at hand to fit around their normal lifestyle. In fact, with live-in care no two days need to be the same!
Radis’ live-in care provides support to people with many different needs and circumstances.
Maybe you just want a companion to give you peace of mind someone is there? Perhaps your needs are changing or unpredictable? Or do you have a disability, suffer from dementia, Parkinson’s or other long-term condition? Even with nursing care needs, live-in care can be suitable for many people.
No two people need the same support, but here are some examples of how live-in can support you:
- Preparing and eating meals
- Household chores
- Getting up in the morning and going to bed
- Washing and dressing
- Going to the toilet and continence care
- Help with (including administration of) medicines
- Getting out and about to shops and other places
- Looking after pets
- Health needs, including nursing care
Before we provide support for the first time, we will visit you, introduce Radis and ask you and your family exactly what support you need and how you would like it. If needed we will visit again, until we fully understand your needs and wishes. We will answer all questions you have, so that you are clear about what to expect from us.
Using this information, we will work with you to draw up a support plan and make clear all costs. We will also offer you choices of carers who we feel are most suitable for your circumstances.
When you are happy we will agree a start date and we will continue to check everything is working fine with you at regular intervals.
