Who We Are

Who We Are

Adrian Mullins

Founder & Managing Director

Adrian has worked in both the health and hospitality sector, which has given him core principles in customer service and first-rate care.

While working in healthcare, Adrian was sadly exposed to poor levels of service delivered to the elderly.

And his experience allowed him to see how moving an individual into unfamiliar surrounding such as a nursing home could lead to deterioration.

But it was the personal experience of trying to find his grandmother high-quality care at home, that prompted him to establish CuraCare.

Adrian feels passionately that more choice should be given to the elderly to continue living in their own home.

In his spare time, Adrian is a SUCBA diver and enjoys travelling.

Ciara Mullins

Operations Director

Earlier carers in sports sponsorship and TV production, saw Ciara work on many large-scale events.

She developed impeccable planning and organisational skills, which alongside her attention to detail and excellent relationship building skills ensure she is a superb support for customers and team alike.

Elderly care is very personal for Ciara. After caring for her grandfather in his own home for nine years, Ciara understands more than most the challenges of helping a loved-one.

Ciara’s appetite for new challenges has seen her successfully help her brother’s Ultra marathon Cycle team raise more than £25,000 for various charities.

Ciara greatly enjoys travelling, singing, horse riding and attending sports events.

Care Team

Our care assistants are at the very heart of what we do.

We are dedicated to attracting the right people to join our team. Many of our carers have been attracted to the role following a personal experience – something we find sets them apart.

Three of our care team were regional finalists in the Home Care Worker & Care Newcomer categories of The Great British Care Awards 2018.

We are very proud our care team, all of whom we’d be happy to have look after us or our family.
