Helen Petrie - Home Manager
Helen Petrie gained experience of the care profession early in her life as she did voluntary work in a Christian-run home for people with learning disabilities while she was at school in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe).
Helen started in the care industry as a nursing auxiliary then trained as a Registered Nurse in Mental Health (RNMH). After taking a career break, she returned to work as a kitchen assistant, became a carer then a senior carer with the local authority. In 2002, Helen joined The Richardson Partnership for Care as a Senior Support Worker where she completed her NVQs. She later 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.
Helen has three children, the youngest still at school, and six grandchildren. When she is not busy looking after her family, Helen is a very competitive darts player.
