Director of Clinical Services, Responsive Management Inc.
As the Director of Clinical Services for Responsive Management Inc., Alicja provides clinical leadership, consultation and support to various nursing and support staff positions in our long term care homes. She is a collaborative leader who puts our residents first by embracing a person-centred philosophy and by establishing a standard of clinical excellence. Alicja brings a passion for looking after seniors and for mentoring and coaching nurses in leadership positions. She finds creating solutions to new or existing problems exciting and is energized by collaborating with forward-looking colleagues to find solutions for the future.
Alicja joined Responsive Management Inc. at its inception in 2011, with our acquisition of seven homes, including Eatonville Care Centre, a long term care home where she had been the Director of Care for over 10 years. Over the last few years, she has moved from her role as Director of Care to Regional Nurse Clinician to her current role of Director of Clinical Services. Before joining Responsive, Alicja worked in hospitals and long term care in a variety of positions from casual Registered Nurse to Assistant Director of Care to Director of Care.
Alicja graduated in Nursing with a Neuro Psychiatric profile from the Professional College in Krakow, Poland. Her curiosity and aptitude for learning have motivated her to complete many courses related to Long Term Care, Gerontology and Health Management. Alicja’s commitment to her profession is ongoing: she is a member of the Mississauga Halton Local Health Integration Network Director of Care committee and task force. Additionally, she chairs our in-house Joint Director of Care and Nurse Clinicians committee meetings.
Alicja enjoys spending her spare time with family and friends, as well as travelling, reading, walking, biking and going to the gym.
