Julie Selves, Palm Tree Home Care

My background is actually in hospitality, I was running a restaurant 10 years ago. I decided this wasn’t enough for me and after a conversation with a friend, I ended up applying for a job with the Guinness Care Trust where she worked.

I started as a carer and I loved it. I worked my way up to team leader and eventually progressed onto registered manager. It was really hard work but so rewarding.

With everything I’ve learnt I set up Palm Tree Home Care with a friend. Palm Tree is a dementia friendly domiciliary care agency with 15 staff. We look after vulnerable adults for over 70 families. And I’m still learning! I am now doing my Level 5 Management qualification with Skills Group and all of our staff are doing their Level 2 and 3 qualifications with Skills Group.
