Radis kicks off 20 year anniversary with 20 random acts of kindness

By | NEWS

We have kicked off the celebration of our 20th anniversary by spreading kindness across our team of dedicated Care Workers.

Throughout the rest of this year, we will be picking staff at random from our 3,000 strong workforce and delivering a variety of gifts in recognition of their hard work and dedication.

Joanne Wilson, Service Manager at Beacon Park Village was one of the first to receive a gift and said: “When I opened the package I was shocked and didn’t expect it, but it did make me feel that I was in the company’s thoughts. It was a nice feeling knowing you’re not just a number and you are appreciated.”

Deepesh Patel, Co-Founder and Executive Director of Radis commented: “I’m incredibly proud of all our team here at Radis, who give so much of themselves to ensure others are well-cared for.

“Over the last 20 years, our team has regularly gone above and beyond to make sure they consistently deliver care to some of the most vulnerable people in our communities.

“We’ve seen staff walk for miles through snow, take boats through floods and over the last year, throughout the pandemic, do whatever it takes to make sure our clients are getting the care they rely on daily.

“We are so proud of our team and of the kind, caring company they have helped to build.”

Funding advice for Radis clients

By | NEWS

We are delighted to announce that we have joined forces with 3Q Financial to help our clients access advice about funding their care.

For people whose personal savings and investments mean that they aren’t eligible to have their care funded by their Local Authority, choosing how to pay for the support that they need is an important decision.

There are a number of ways that people can fund the cost such as from personal income, savings or investments, from an annuity or equity release.

Now, anyone considering equity release as a payment option for Radis services can be referred to 3Q Financial (who are registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), for a free consultation.

Equity release is the name given to a range of products aimed at people aged over 55 who want to access the money tied up in the value of their home but wish to continue to live there.

Andrew Myall, Mortgage and Wealth Protection Consultant for 3Q Financial said: “Some people may be wary of equity release however, regulations and equity release products have moved on from the ones that got a bad reputation back in the 1990s. Equity release is now highly regulated and there are options which allow people to access the equity in their homes without relinquishing ownership of the property. However, it is still really important that anyone thinking about this option carefully considers their existing financial situation and long-term goals before committing to this plan.

“Our aim is to provide people with independent advice so that they are empowered to make an informed decision about the funding option that is right for them.”

Liz Lewis, Service Development Director for Radis Community Care added: “We understand that for anyone who has to pay for their own care, making a decision about how to fund it is really fundamental and can also feel like a huge barrier to overcome. We hope that by working alongside 3Q Financial we can offer potential clients a source of useful advice and information to support them through this process and enable them to go on to access the care and support that they need to make a positive difference to their lives.”
