Chris Audsley - Registered Care Manager

We would like to introduce you to Chris, registered care manager for Radfield Home Care Stamford, Peterborough and Rutland. Chris is responsible for the day to day running of the office in line with CQC regulations and also for ensuring that the service is safe, caring, responsive, effective and well led. Chris is the key point of contact for carers, clients and their families and promotes individual's wellbeing at all times.

Chris joined Radfield in April 2021, and brings with him a great range of experience from within the health and social care sector, including having worked for 4 years within a domiciliary care company in Peterborough. With a level 5 in health and social care and management experience that includes qualifications as a ‘train the trainer’, Chris’ skillset is a perfect match to a care manager role.

Chris explains his inspiration to join the adult health care sector and his journey to becoming a care manager:

“I was a fully qualified chef prior to working in adult social care when my Grandad became ill. I was looking after him while working and when he sadly passed away I felt like I wanted to give something back. I then went into ‘care in the community’ and fell in love with the job - I had such a sense of fulfilment knowing I was making a difference in someone's life and from then I never looked back!

My experiences have ingrained the core values of putting the clients needs first and valuing the person's individuality and abilities, something I know Radfield strongly believes in too. This all helps me to run an effective and compassionate team of care professionals and undertake the day to day management of the Radfield office.

As a care manager Chris is also clear as to what he hopes his experience will bring to Radfield’s clients:

“Having come across many different situations in my career in care, I have learnt many different techniques to help others to adapt to changes in the care needs of others. I have been training care staff for most of my adult social care career and have developed ways to share and enhance the knowledge held by care staff - I know in turn that this then has such a positive effect on the quality of life of Radfield’s clients.”
