Benetas is pleased to announce its appointment of experienced aged care and health industry leader and practitioner Helen Kemp to fill Benetas’ key executive role of General Manager, Community Health and Care.
Helen brings a wealth of experience and is well known in the aged care sector for her expertise in customer centred care and workforce management. She has held senior roles in both public and private health sector organisations over her career.

Helen said, “I am delighted to take up this role with Benetas and support our Community Health and Care division to provide our clients across Victoria with the supports that they need and deserve.
“Australia’s aged care sector is facing significant challenges across all services. This gives us the invaluable opportunity to really step up and provide next level care to our clients and their families.
“Over the past few weeks I’ve been able to work with the team to do just that. When it comes to home and community care, there is a great deal more for us to achieve and I look forward to working closely with the team to create a great service.”
Helen said that Benetas provides a valuable opportunity to have a positive impact in aged care and drive forward continuous improvements to the services and experiences that our clients have.
“I value what Benetas aspires to in terms of their customer focus and care. I am looking forward to the opportunity to help the existing team take their vision for this forward and maximise the community impact that they have.”
