People of Arcare – Helen Galileos

Today we sit down with Helen Galileos, Client Services Manager at Arcare Balnarring. She discusses her wisdom surrounding working together as a team and bringing the community together, as well as building new relationships in the community.

 

How many years have you been in Aged Care? Any relevant experience we can share?

I have been in aged care for 2 years now and love it. My background is working in hospitals (over 15 years), and I decided I need a change but want to stick to health. I have also worked for a major Health fund for approximately 10 years.

 

What are you looking forward to in your role at Arcare Balnarring?

Being in a new home, working together as a team, and bringing the community together. As well as building new relationships in the community is something that I am very excited about.

 

What do you enjoy about your role and working in aged care?

Helping families through the process, as placing your family member in an aged care home can be a very stressful decision.

 

What pearls of wisdom or words of encouragement do you live by?

Take one day at a time.

 

What hobbies or interests do you have outside of work?

I support a charity called Challenge (kids with cancer) and am very actively involved in this organisation.
