Meet the Sheltered Housing Officer: Maureen Ball
"Hello, my name is Maureen and I have been a Sheltered Housing
Officer for over 15 years. Before that I was a Care Worker for 10
years so have spent all of my life helping older people.
"I love the fact that it’s possible to change a person’s day for
the better just by giving someone a bit of your time and help and
seeing someone smile as a result always makes me feel good.
"Allendale House has won Best Sheltered Garden for the last 7
years, something we are all very proud of, and it is the perfect
setting for our annual summer fair where we bring the local
community together, giving local children a day to remember and
raising money into the bargain.
"Working in this job has meant that I have developed a lot of
knowledge about all sorts of useful things, so if you’ve got a
question just ask and I’ll see what I can find for you.
"If I had to describe myself I would say that I am an honest and
open person, and not afraid to speak up when it helps people living
at Allendale House!"
Interesting fact: "I’ve always had a love for dolls houses
and hope soon to spend some time restoring my daughters’ dolls
house from when she was a child".
