Ali joined the Trinity Homecare team in November 2015. Recommended through a friend, Ali had never considered working in care but decided to take a leap of faith and start a new career path. Swapping from her safe office space within a building company, she jumped straight into her journey to become a TrinityCarer. Initially, she started as an Overnight Carer and then moved over to the Visiting Care team. After just one year, she was given the opportunity to become a Senior Carer which she very much enjoyed, particularly going out into the community and meeting the wonderful clients and their families.
Ali’s hard work and determination didn’t go unnoticed. A year later, she was promoted to Care Coordinator and she soon completed her NVQ Level 3 in Social Care. 6 years on and Ali is now the Care Manager for the Live-In team. A committed and friendly individual, Ali has gained a huge amount of respect from her peers at Trinity Homecare.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her five cats and two rabbits who keep her very busy. She is a huge animal lover and understands just how important pets are in a person’s life.
