Tina Ball – Care Manager
Tina started working in the care environment when she was 15. She was, what was called, a ‘tea girl’ in a residential home for the elderly. Tina would go after school each night for a couple of hours and when she left school, she went on to work there as a carer.
It was whilst working as a carer that Tina discovered her vocation in life – caring for the vulnerable adults who can’t care for themselves. She worked there for 10 years, left to start a family and then worked in the community for the next 12 years.
But Tina wanted to get back into care and successfully applied for the position of a Care Practitioner at Capulet Care’s home, Perton Manor. Even though Perton Manor and its residents were different from her previous experience, Tina loved it. Every day was “different and challenging to say the least.”
Tina eventually applied for Lead Care Practitioner but impressed the management team so much that she was instead offered the higher position of Care Team Manager. She happily accepted and thrived in the role and was later offered the role of Assistant Care Manager. Tina grew into this role as she had her previous roles and, when the opportunity arose, she was promoted to Care Manager at Perton Manor’s sister care home, Woodford House. Tina currently studying for her Level 4 Diploma in Health and Social Care.
“I can truly say I am grateful for the opportunity given to me by Juliet and the team. It really is true what they say; show your worth and you will prosper. I thrive on making people happy and will give my all to those more vulnerable. I am a people person and will go above and beyond to make a difference.”
