Our Team Right at Home Far North Queensland

Stephen Ireland - Director

After graduating from university with a Bachelor of Commerce, Steve has spent the last 12 years working his way up through executive management positions in his capacity as a Chartered Accountant. Through this time, he has obtained exposure to a large number of industries, including mining, tourism, construction, government, financial services, training, employment services, and indigenous affairs.

It was during this time, Steve developed a passion not only for business but to use his developed skillset to help other members of the community. This varied exposure has helped Steve appreciate the motivational benefit of working within industries where you can come home at the end of the day with the knowledge that you have helped make somebody’s life better.

As soon as Steve was aware of the possibility to acquire a Right at Home franchise in his adopted home of Cairns, he jumped at the chance, seeing it as an ideal opportunity to outwork these passions in a meaningful way, providing a quality service, much needed by the citizens of Far North Queensland.

Joylene Ireland - Director

Joylene has a heart to serve her community. In addition to being the mother to a young family, Joylene devotes much of her free time volunteering her skills to different charities in her beloved home city of Cairns.

A qualified Chartered Accountant, Joylene has not only a strong technical skillset ideal for managing and operating a business, but also a gifted administrator. Through her career, Joylene has held management positions in several accounting firms prior to branching out and accepting the opportunity to be the Chief Financial Officer of a local private school. In addition to all of this, Joylene also volunteers on the Board of Directors of three local not-for-profit entities.

Having taken time off in the past year to start her family, Joylene is excited by the opportunity to use her skillset in her own business within an industry that supports her desire to help others in need. Her attention to detail and her desire for excellence ensures that the people of Far North Queensland attain only the best quality of care. 

Stephen and Joylene discovered that they love working with people and serving their community. They provide personalised service for aged care clients in Queensland and look forward to helping those they serve to improve their quality of life.
