It’s hard to believe that Helen Petrie has now been Home Manager at The Mews for over a year.
Helen first joined The Richardson Partnership for Care in 2002, starting as a Senior Support Worker and then gaining NVQ qualifications in Health & Social Care and Management & Leadership. She left to widen her experience and worked as a Manager in a care home for the elderly, which was owned by a large national organisation. In the five years that Helen was Manager, she turned the home around from having CQC notifications and being non-compliant in all areas to being fully compliant.
Helen returned to The Richardson Partnership for Care as Registered Manager at The Mews in March 2016 and is pleased to be back. She said: “It felt as though I’d come back home. It’s a very supportive environment and I feel part of a big family. I’ve loved my first year back and it’s gone very quickly. It’s good to come back with a new perspective and wider experience. My role has many aspects but I most enjoy helping people develop to the best of their abilities.”
