Lorraine Ball

General Manager

Hi, my name is Lorraine, and I am the General Manager here at Tewkesbury Fields. Welcome to our website!

I have been privileged to work across the care sector with older people and adults with learning disabilities. I have worked in quality and compliance roles, as well as in management. I qualified as a nurse in 1998.

My ultimate goal has always been, and always will be, to enhance and enrich the lives of those we have been trusted to care for and support. I’m a nurse by background, and like most nurses, I started my journey in the NHS. I joined Barchester because I believe very much in, 'Celebrating Life'. I live this core value in every aspect of my life and work. 

I am dedicated to putting our residents at the heart of everything we do. It is important help people live a life that is meaningful to them. I am excited to help our residents achieve this. 

My experience in quality and compliance work means I am always keen to achieve & improve the highest standards of care. I am a great believer in consulting our residents so that their experience with us can be the best.

Liesel Bolchev

Deputy Manager

I joined the Tewkesbury Field Care Home team in June 2020 as Deputy Manager and Clinical Lead. Being South African born, I became a qualified nurse in 1998.  Moving to the UK in 2006, I have worked within the care industry for over 14 years. Initially as a midwife, moving into psychiatric nursing and end of life care. I’ve worked within other care home settings and welcome the opportunity to bring my wealth of knowledge to the team and residents here at Tewkesbury Fields.

I believe we can all learn something new each day and should always strive for excellence in all we do; to keep improving and evolving. I am looking forward to getting to know our residents and supporting the Tewkesbury Fields team. This is such a beautiful home and great environment to work in, enabling us to deliver the best care and support to residents and their loved ones.
