Meet Helen, Physiotherapist at Tyne Grange 

Having worked as a Physiotherapist in private practice for over ten years, Helen was looking for a new challenge! She joined the team at Tyne Grange when the care home opened in 2020, and loves the variety that comes with working as a Physiotherapist in social care.

She shares: "My favourite thing as a Physio is the ability to see so many different patients in the same place. Anything from spinal cord injuries to brain injuries, to people that are independently mobile that just need a bit more support. It’s unusual to get all of that into one job."

Meet Jowana, Activities Coordinator at Maypole Grove

Jowana previously worked in a nursery, so had a lot of the transferable skills required to work in social care. 

When she saw the advert for Activities Coordinator at Maypole Grove, it caught her eye - so she applied and has never looked back. 

In her role she's responsible for planning one-to-one and group activities in the home, to enable people to continue doing the things that they love, and support them to develop new skills.
