Select Lifestyles

10th Anniversary Award – Kulvinder Kaur

Kulvinder (Kully) Kaur recently celebrated 10 years with Select Lifestyles. We asked her a few questions to learn more about her journey with us and her experiences working in our services. Here’s what she had to say:

Can you tell us a bit about yourself? What are your hobbies and interests?
“I love spending time with my grandsons who are growing up way too fast. I also find great joy in my job at Select Lifestyles as seeing the service users happy is the best feeling.”

 

How long have you been at Select Lifestyles? And at what services?
“I’ve been with Select Lifestyles since January 2014. I started at Oaks but have also worked at Allen Rd, Fellows Rd, St Marks, and St Johns Square. While I’ve had the opportunity to work at various services, I’ve always had a special connection with Oaks due to the strong rapport I’ve built with the service users.”

 

What 3 things do you like about Select Lifestyles?
“I enjoy working one-on-one with service users, as it allows me to plan my day with them. I’ve also had the chance to visit places with them that I may not have otherwise. Additionally, building meaningful relationships with service users and their families is incredibly rewarding.”

Can you tell us any recent achievements or milestones that you have reached? Or any challenges that you’ve overcome?
“I’m turning 60 this year, which feels like a significant milestone. Despite feeling young at heart, I’ve noticed the inevitable changes that come with ageing. One memorable achievement was taking the girls on a few holidays to celebrate milestone birthdays, including swimming with dolphins, an experience we’ll never forget.”

 

How has Select Lifestyles helped you on your career journey?
“Select Lifestyles has provided me with the training needed to excel in my role. However, I must admit that technology is not my strong suit. I prefer the simplicity of pen and paper.”

 

What advice would you give to someone who is seeking to work for us?
“I would say that it’s a great job that is incredibly rewarding. For me, it’s more than just a job; it’s about going above and beyond to make a difference in the lives of our service users.”

 

How would you best describe your service?
“We are an all-female service, and while we may face challenges at times, we always come together as a team to get the job done!”

 

We are grateful to have Kully as part of our team, and we look forward to witnessing more of her dedication and compassion in the years to come. Stay tuned for more employee spotlights and success stories from Select Lifestyles!
