Rachael Griffiths

Rachael has been the Owner and Director of Home Instead Senior Care Shrewsbury, Ludlow and Oswestry since 2013. Rachael’s passion to deliver the best quality domiciliary care service was based very much on her own personal experiences. Rachael was lucky to know all her Grandparents to a good age but also consequentially their increasing vulnerability. Between them they experienced various levels of care and support from hospital care, community care, domiciliary care and residential care.

Because of her experiences (and to satisfy her curiosity) Rachael felt the need to pursue a vocation to provide domiciliary care. Not only to support clients with everyday personal care tasks but to enable them to continue to remain socially active within their communities. She had learnt from her experience the importance and the huge benefits of keeping people mentally, physically and socially active enhancing their quality of life and retaining their dignity and independence.

Over the years Rachael has recognised the importance of SPiC in supporting the development of her business. It has enabled opportunities to share training and examples of good practice. This has inevitably led to the continuous developments in the care offered by her own service.

Rachael has always looked beyond her own service in order to develop awareness in the local community. She continues to support local charities through community events and post pandemic looks forward to hosting more community events again.

Rachael is enthusiastic to promote care in the local community – raising people’s awareness and in many cases reducing the fear factor. She undertakes talks to local groups on Dementia Awareness, Scam Awareness and End of Life Awareness. She is also keen to explore many avenues in order to raise the profile of care in the community. It is Rachael’s belief that by taking a creative approach to care and support we can make such a difference to the lives of older and vulnerable people in Shropshire and prevent crisis in the future.
