Helen Baxendale

Clinical Director

Helen Baxendale, Clinical Director at Exemplar Health Care was the first private sector nurse to train as a Fellow of the Florence Nightingale Faculty Kings College London as an Advance Nurse Practitioner, Older Persons Nurse where she focused her research on quality improvement within end of life care.

With over two decades in the care sector and a previous six years working as a qualified nurse, Helen has a breadth of experience across care, operational and clinical governance roles. Her roles across the last five years at providers such as Bupa UK and Exemplar Health Care have been focused around supporting teams to deliver the best care, ensuring the service users are at the heart of the organisation.

Helen approaches her role with care and enthusiasm and her long-term goal is to remove the fear people and their families have of care homes; she wants to highlight how the right care and environment can transform the lives of service users and, in some cases, allow them to regain independence they never thought possible.
