A WELLINGTON care home’s activities co-ordinator is a finalist at a national awards programme for women in social care.

Helen Hill has worked at Nynehead Court since 2019, becoming its activities co-ordinator the following year.

Since then, she has arranged many wonderful activities and outings for the residents and raised thousands of pounds for good causes through the home’s fundraising events.

She was nominated for an accolade at the ‘Women Achieving Greatness in Social Care Awards’ in the category ‘Superwoman - Care Home’.

She will find out if she has won the award at a ceremony in London next month, which will be hosted by Good Morning Britain’s Ranvir Singh. Home Manager Joanne Fenn said: “Since joining Nynehead Court in 2019, Helen has proved repeatedly what a wonderful and creative member of staff she is. We are all thrilled that she is a finalist in these awards, she will always be a ‘superwoman’ in our eyes.” The Nynehead Court Estate offers gracious retirement living for older people requiring residential care or close-care housing. Set in 18 acres of parkland, it is registered to provide residential care for 44 people within the Court and close care housing for 11 retirees/couples within the Mews. Within the Court, the newly extended Mulberry Wing caters to those with memory impairment, or in need of greater stimulation, with a higher ratio of staff to residents. At the other end of the spectrum, the 11 close care mews houses provide the opportunity to extend home ownership and live independently, safe in the knowledge that every level of care, support, and security is available, when and if required.
