Local care service celebrates ‘Good’ CQC rating

By | NEWS

A local care service in Nottingham has been rated ‘Good’, following an inspection by the Care Quality Commission (CQC).

Radis Community Care, who help people to remain as independent as possible in their own homes was inspected in March, and the newest report gave the service a glowing report.

The Visiting Care service achieved the rating thanks to its ability to deliver a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led service to its service users.

Inspectors praised the service and recognised that service users who currently receive support from Radis were “treated with kindness and respect.”

The report also noted that service users were “supported to have maximum choice and control of their lives and staff supported them in the least restrictive way possible and in their best interests.”

Paula Hoggarth, Group Operations Director for Radis Community Care said: “We are delighted by the CQC’s ‘good’ rating which is nothing less than what our incredibly dedicated and hardworking staff deserve for the amazing services that they provide to people in Nottingham – particularly in these current challenging times.

“Thanks to their commitment, people are able to remain as independent as possible within the comfort of their own homes and we’re really proud of them all.”

As part of the inspection, a number of service users, staff and relatives were spoken to and encouraged to provide feedback on the support they received from the Beeston-based branch.

Inspectors said that people’s feedback about the service “was consistently positive”, with people commenting on how care staff went above and beyond.

One relative commented: “The staff have really gone the extra mile to help my relative, so I can’t say anything bad about them at all.”

The CQC report commended Radis in its overall summary and noted that “people were protected from the risk of infection when supported in their own homes”. They also added: “staff who had training in infection prevention and control, had access to protective equipment, and understood how to maintain good infection control practices when providing care.”

Staff were also described in the report as being “proud to work at the service”. One individual commented: “It’s really good working here. The best place I’ve worked. The staff are all so friendly to each other and if there is a problem, we help each other.”

Radis Community Care Nottingham is a Visiting Care service providing personal care to people in their own homes.

New Supported Living scheme offers independence

By | NEWS

We’re thrilled to be working with Bromford Housing Association again as the new care partner for their latest My Place Scheme – Baron’s Place in Burntwood, Staffordshire.

Due to open in April, the scheme will have 14 self-contained apartments offering people with a learning disability a safe and secure home where they can live independently with the care and support they need from Radis.

There is also good quality communal/shared space on the site, extensive gardens and parking. The site is located right in the centre of Burntwood with easy access to community facilities.

Life at MyPlace is all about raising aspirations for people with a learning or physical disability or people with an enduring mental health diagnosis. Offering people the chance to take control of their lives, live independently and make the most of their opportunities.

Residents will have their own front door, the use of a friendly community hub, onsite care from Radis and housing support from Bromford to ensure the perfect mix of independence, safety and security that we all need.

The self-contained apartments at MyPlace offer a springboard to enable people to blossom and flourish in a safe and secure space.

See our Supported Living page for more information about how we help people with diabilities, autism and mental health problems to live independently. Alternatively, email: communications@radis.co.uk

Cakes for a good cause

By | NEWS

Staff from across Radis showed their support recently for Dementia UK’s Time For A Cuppa campaign.

After baking and buying cakes, colleagues organised cake sales, with proceeds going to the charity to help them raise funds for the dementia specialist Admiral Nurses on Dementia UK’s Helpline.

We’re really proud of the care we provide every day to people with dementia, which helps them to remain as independent and well as possible, and we were pleased to support such a worthy cause.

At Head Office alone, we raised over £150!!! Well done to everyone involved.
