We are pleased to introduce Mill View’s Home Manager, Julie Dawson
Julie started work within the care industry in 1987 where she worked as a Care Assistant for 3 years at Summerfield Residential Home. Following this Julie worked as a part time care assistant for a small care home called The Rakes. She stayed at The Rakes for 24 years in total progressing from Senior Carer to Deputy Manager. Along the way she obtained her NVQ Levels 2-4 as well as other relevant training courses.
Julie saw that Ideal Care Homes was opening a new care home in her area and was very interested as she knew the company was known for its high quality services. She applied for the Deputy Manager post at Mill View and was offered the title in August 2010.
She became Home Manager in February 2012 and is currently ongoing with her N.V.Q level 5 qualification. She is enjoying her role as Home Manager and is looking forward to new challenges that may arise.
