Adrian MullinsFounder & 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 surroundings 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 keen SCUBA diver and enjoys travelling.
Ciara MullinsOperations Director
Ciara began her career in the sports industry, where she worked on large-scale events.
Here she developed impeccable organisational skills, which alongside her attention to detail and excellent relationship building skills ensure she is a superb support for customers and staff alike.
But like Adrian, it was the experience of caring for her grandfather that led her to CuraCare.
After caring for him in his own home for nine years, Ciara understands more than most the challenges of helping a loved-one.
Ciara’s positivity is unmatched and her appetite for new challenges has seen her successfully help her brother’s Ultra Marathon Cycle team raise more than £25,000 for charities including the Alzheimer’s Society.
Outside work, Ciara enjoys horse riding and travelling.

Our care workers are at the very heart of what we do. We invest significant amounts of time and money recruiting and training people who we would like to provide care for ourselves or our family.
Many of our care workers have been attracted to the role following a personal experience – something we find sets them apart.
In addition to the standard checks on criminal records and employment references, we also listen carefully to peers and clients to ensure that we are employing the very best care workers.
