Helen is a registered nurse with outstanding knowledge and experience in the care home sector, which she has dedicated her working life to for many years.
Athena welcomed Helen on board as its clinical governance director in October 2016 and she very quickly became a huge contributor to the organisation, enabling it to grow safely with all risks identified and managed effectively and efficiently.
Helen is a valued board member and a voice of reason and she can often be found in homes with her sleeves rolled up, supporting team members and demonstrating what Outstanding looks like.
Since Helen joined the company and she has increased compliance to a better quality level in each of its homes. She is respected by every manager and the regional team and she is Athena’s go-to person for honest and structured advice. She has the best interests of residents at the heart of everything she does.
Helen makes a difference in Athena’s care homes every day and is also an instrumental participant in many other important projects outside of her day to day role. Helen has fantastic relationships with Athena’s multi agency partners and is well respected and trusted across the sector.
Her calm and influential demeanour has had a fantastic impact on team members and watching people blossom under her mentorship and guidance is a pleasure. Athena is delighted to have such an amazing and inspirational person as part of the team.
