Meet The Manager

Audrey is Care Manager at The No1 Care Agency.

What made you go into care? 

I really enjoy talking with people and listening to what stories people have to tell! As well as caring, you meet so many people from all walks of life; it’s a learning experience!

What do you love about your job?  

This is a very rewarding job, you build new relationships and as a carer, you are an important part of someone's life and can be a very big support in them meeting their personal goals and becoming more independent.

Home is where you feel most comfortable. It’s the place you’ve worked hard to build, where memories are stored and belongings abound, where families have been raised and friends, past and present, have visited. It’s part of who you are, and if you wish to continue living your fullest, happiest life there you should be supported to do so. 

At The No.1 Care Agency, we see it as our mission to enable more people to be able to do exactly that. And as a registered not-for-profit enterprise one of the central ways we do this is by ensuring that our services are as affordable and accessible as possible.

Our pricing structure is simple and transparent. What’s more, each and every penny of our revenue goes back into our operations to create exceptional, accessible care. By relentlessly focusing on fairness, community and social value we are also able to attract high-calibre carers, counting the very best in the care profession as part of our team.

Why do you love your job? 

Live-in care is my passion, I love to help people who are in need. I love this job because supporting people in an environment they’re familiar with enables me to spend more time with the service user, meaning more meaningful and worthwhile relationships can be built. 

What’s your approach to caring?

I believe taking a holistic approach to every individual is what makes a good carer. Using a holistic approach enhances the carer's ability to apply person-centered care.  Person-centered care is, of course, the best approach as every individual is able to feel that their needs are met and are respected.

What made you join the care sector?

I’m a caring person,  a people’s person.  And I knew I would do so well helping and supporting those that are unable to do so themselves. 

What do you love about your job?   

I love that the job permits me to make a difference in people’s lives.  Interestingly, there’s no single day that’s the same.  You have to think on your feet, but the rewards outweigh the challenges by far.  You go to bed knowing you’ve supported, cared for and ensured someone is comfortable.  What a beautiful feeling!

What do you love about your job?

I love my job because I love being on the front line of care. Supporting clients is hugely rewarding as I can see the outcomes of my work and the difference it makes to client’s well-being. 

What’s your approach to caring?

It takes courage to work with clients through the person-centered approach, but it’s essential in order to achieve the highest quality of care, to communicate effectively and build meaningful relationships. Above all else, competence and commitment make a difference when improving a client’s well-being every day.
