Helen Activities Co ordinator

Helen Angel has just joined us in July.  She has a background in activities and events planning for community groups and 12 years of nursing experience, working with the aged population. When she is not with us she divides her time between her role as a mum of two girls, volunteering for Contact the Elderly and being chair of her local school’s PTA.

Helen says:

“I am very excited to be joining Abbeyfield Newcastle.  I am passionate about supporting older people to have fulfilling and enriching lives, and to combat loneliness and isolation. “

Over the next few months, Helen will be consulting with residents on what activities they have enjoyed, and what other activities they might be interested in. Working alongside Claire Murphy-Morgan, (Volunteer Co-ordinator), staff, volunteers and residents, she aims to create a full and varied schedule of activities and events may it be trips to museums or a chat in the conservatory over a cup of tea.
