Tina Hayes

Head of Housekeeping

I have worked at The Manor for nearly 18 years. I am originally from Liverpool and married with two grown children. I have lived in Taunton for 29 years. I started as a care assistant working 5pm-10pm shifts while my children were young. I moved on to days when they started school, working 9am-2pm and 5pm-10pm shifts on bank. I went on to days working 25 hours a week until my children were old enough for me to go full time. While working as a care assistant I got my NVQ 2 in care. In 2007 I became a Senior Carer which gave me more of a challenge in my role. In 2010, I was promoted to Head Housekeeper as I wanted more of a challenge - and god is it a challenge which I enjoy.

Lisa Bale

Activities Coordinator

Hi there, my name is Lisa, and I am part of the activities team here at The Manor. I have worked with Barchester for over 10 years and have previously worked as a Unit Care Coordinator before taking on my current role.

I love coming in to work each day and the variety it brings. I particularly enjoy taking residents out for the day on the minibus; most recently, we have been to the seaside and ten-pin bowling. Having fun and making residents smile makes my job worthwhile and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My love of being with people extends into my personal life and I enjoy cooking for friends and family in between renovating my new house.

Peter Clarke

Maintenance Team

Hi, my name is Pete, and I am part of the maintenance team here at The Manor. I joined the home in 2007 and have loved my time here. I am a brick layer by trade, but this environment is a very different one.

I really enjoy the interaction with residents and having banter with them all as I go about the home. I am rewarded when I make a difference to their lives, as such a little thing can make a massive difference to them. In my down time, I enjoy DIY and always have a project on the go.

Rachael Yuill

Care Practitioner

Hi, my name is Rachael, and am a Care Practitioner here at The Manor. I joined Barchester many years ago, back in 2008, when I made a career change from hairdressing. The Manor has become a big part of my life and I enjoy making a difference to the lives of those who live here.  

My love of hair and beauty crosses over into my time at The Manor and I enjoy pampering residents - when we look good, we feel good - and I love seeing their confidence grow when I’ve done their hair or make up.

Pursuing the Care Practitioner qualification was a challenge for me and I was delighted to achieve this; I really enjoy the enhanced role I now have, with every day bringing something new.
