Meet Helen, Physiotherapist at Tyne Grange
Following years in private practice, Helen joined Tyne Grange care home two years ago and loves the person-centred nature of the role.
She shares: “Typically, I have five or six physiotherapy sessions each day. I assess and provide treatment for anybody who has physical needs. We also do group exercise classes to make things fun. The people who live at Tyne Grange tend to be younger adults who are keen to go out into the community, so we facilitate that too.
“In this role, you can make a big difference to people’s lives. You’re responsible for improving their quality of life and empowering them to be more independent. It’s extremely rewarding.”
