Hello I’m Chris Reed the Home Manager at Astley Hall. I’m a dad of 3 wonderful daughters. I hail from the Black Country originally, but now live on the ‘borders’ in Hagley. I’m a dually Registered Nurse, qualified in both adults and children and have a management qualification from Aston University. My hobbies are photography, history, travelling and cooking. I also love to listen to music and go to rock concerts.
For the last 13 years I’ve managed Acorns Children’s Hospice in Birmingham and previously to that worked for two national neuromuscular support charities. I’m now embarking on a new and exciting journey with Astley Hall and I plan to put all my passion, drive and experience into the mix with the wonderful team here.
Friends and family are welcome to visit whenever they want, to pop in for coffee, stay for a meal and join in any events or outings that we organise. As manager, I am always available to meet with families and friends on an individual basis, and hold regular informal meetings that give residents and their friends and families the opportunity to meet with me and discuss and plan future activities or events as well as a chance to feedback on how things are going. Individuals change and circumstances change and as a care home it is important that we recognise this and provide care that is flexible and constantly reviewed to ensure that it is meeting individual’s needs and preferences.
I am supported by a great team of nursing, care, activities, housekeeping, catering and maintenance staff, all of whom are committed to making Astley Hall the best it can be, who work together to ensure that we provide the highest standard of care.
We have long-standing and dedicated nursing teams in our homes, with many years of professional experience between them. This has enabled us in a number of our homes to have achieved the highest accreditation for nursing care, the Gold Standard Framework.
"My wife has been a resident at Astley Hall for some two and a half years and I have been delighted with the quality of the care and support that she has received during this period. My wife's condition has deteriorated during her time at the home due to the nature of her illness and her care has always been appropriately adjusted to ensure that she remains as comfortable as possible. I am welcomed warmly by the staff no matter what time of day and continually in awe at the way they attend to her feeding and personal care requirements. As a result, I am very happy with the decision to make Astley Hall her home. "AN, husband of resident, July 2023
"Astley is a nice home out in the country where the clients are well looked after. All staff are very welcoming and friendly, from the day nurses to the admin officer and entertainments lady. The views in the back garden are spectacular and the clients do use this space whenever the weather permits. "AH, niece of resident, July 2023
"Our father has been staying at Astley Hall for about 3 years. He had to be moved from his previous residence as he had a number of behavioural issues. Since being at Astley Hall, he has settled down and appears very happy. Both the environment and the care he receives are excellent. The staff are exceptional and our father and ourselves would be devastated if he had to move. "ML, son of resident, July 2023
"Absolutely beautiful home. The staff are always happy and smiling, and nothing is too much trouble. My friend is extremely happy there and enjoying his newfound friends. The gardens are superb, with stunning views. "CH, friend of resident, August 2023
"The setting and staff are excellent. Our father seems happy and extremely well cared for. Not only do they provide a stimulating, comfortable and caring environment for him, they also make it easier for all of us. As such we could not recommend strongly enough, or imagine a better place for him. "AL, son of resident, September 2023
