Carolyn Ball has been appointed general manager at Belong Morris Feinmann, a care village based in Didsbury, Manchester.
An experienced leader, Ball brings six years’ Belong management expertise, including the last two years spent front of house at the Didsbury complex, which features independent living apartments and specialist households providing 24-hour nursing and dementia care.
Commenting on her new post, Ball said: “I’m thrilled to be leading the team at Belong Morris Feinmann. My goal is to lead by example and ensure our village continues to provide exceptional care for our customers, while building on the happy, positive and vibrant community we are known for.
“Working your way up really gives you a solid understanding of how the business operates. My career with Belong is testament to the organisation as an employer and the unique village model we have is incredible. It just works.”
Ball has been influential in recruitment, training and mentoring colleagues at Belong Morris Feinmann and Belong Warrington, drawing on her HR and administration experience, which she has developed since joining Belong Macclesfield in 2008.
With her Belong background, she has strong expertise in dementia care provision and has built a close relationship with customers and colleagues across the north- west.

Her commitment and determination to grow her Belong career over the past twelve years has created another ‘homegrown’ leader. We’re very proud of Carolyn, her achievement is well-deserved, and we look forward to her building on the success of our Didsbury care village.”
