The ADINA Story
ADINA Home Care Services Ltd was established by Patricia Forbes as the a result of a very personal family situation - the need to find quality, trustworthy, reliable and affordable senior home care for Patricia’s aging grandmother, Adina Hinds, in her own home.
Patricia found the plight was similar to others across the country: an elderly parent with working adult children, who are parents themselves; a great-grandparent with a zest for life and a disabling physical condition; a senior with an undeniable need for homecare assistance doing everyday activities, yet with a determined desire to stay in their own home. Patricia also faced the same situation with her own dad Clifford Forbes who is still currently in his home in London at the age of 90, where a nursing home is "out of the question."
What's a family to do? With their own life to manage, this was how the family business commenced.
Patricia studied and graduated from Bucks New University as a qualified nurse receiving her certifications in: Diploma of Higher education in Nursing, BSc Hons Nursing, Mentorship in Practice, Managing people and performance, practical assessments skills for seniors, safeguarding adults & Children, Best Practice in Dementia Care Facilitator Training.
From a teenager Patricia knew the family needed help in caring for her grandmother Adina and began a search to find competent, caring and affordable assistance. The family search turned up very little and Patricia decided she would take on that role herself. In fact, after extending this role to her aging dad she found there was a relative void in London for the type of home care services the family sought. Clearly, a resource was needed.
Being "go-getters," Patricia, in the position of sister in a ward in a large Hospital in London, along with the family solved the problem for themselves, and hundreds of other families by establishing ADINA Home Care Services Ltd to offer specialised private duty home care services plus a Nursing agency for the community.
And the rest is history! ADINA Home Care Services Ltd, commitment to excellence remains true today. A strong dedication remains, to ensure that our clients are consistently treated with the highest level of respect and dignity and are matched with the right private duty caregiver to provide care services in the home, hospital, assisted living facility, or nursing home.
Adina, who lived to the age of 104, credited her longevity and well-being to Patricia."She's the reason we started it all!" Says her great grandson Jermaine, giving credit (to his mother Patricia) where credit is due.
