Sonjha Young is Registered Care Manager at Bluebird Care Solihull & Birmingham West.

I have worked for Bluebird Care Solihull for over 6 years and have always found it to be a very professional environment with a constant focus on quality in the delivery of care and customer service. I began my career with Bluebird Care as a care assistant and was promoted within a year to care co-ordinator, then in January 2017 I was promoted into the Care Manager position.

I have completed my level 2 QCF in Health and Social Care, level 5 QCF in Leadership and Management, Level 2 in The Principles of Dementia Care and many other distance learning courses to further my skills and knowledge in the health and social care sector.  

I am a trained trainer in Medication Administration, Dementia, End of Life, Moving and Handling of people, Safeguarding Adults and Basic Life Support and CPR.

What makes our home care services different is that we put you first. We aim to provide you with the same standard of care that we would expect for our own families. This means valuing each person’s unique qualities and seeing them as an individual, and not as a list of care needs.

We work alongside families and individuals to tailor our services to help our customers stay in control of their own care for as long as they are able to. Delivering the very best homecare is our passion, and we strive to achieve this every day

Operations Director

Having started my career in care 4 years ago, I am lucky enough to say that I have found a career in a sector that is not only rewarding, but one that I love. During my time in care I have seen the difference the highest quality care can make, not just to the lives of our customers but also the lives of their families and loved ones. Providing high quality home care to individuals allows them to live their lives with the feeling of safety and independence that can only be gained from within their own homes.

I am proud to work for Bluebird Care Solihull alongside an inspirational owners, Indy and Kam, who are determined to make a difference in the social care sector. It is my role to help support our team of dedicated office staff and carers to ensure the customer experience from initial contact througout their care journey with us is of the highest standard.

Recruitment and Business Development Manager

Having recently joined Bluebird Care Solihull as Recruitment and Business Development Manager, this is my first role within the health care sector.  

Growing up, my mother ran care homes all over Solihull and the surrounding areas, so it is an industry that has always been close to home. Even more so after my nan became ill and I had to provide care for her. It was in doing this that I really felt I could utilise my skill set I had acquired from years in corporate management and transfer them across to working in a sector I feel so passionately about. 

It is my role to ensure that we are not only recruiting the right talent of the highest quality, but to also support our team in guaranteeing we maintain our high-quality standards.

Care Coordinator

I have worked in care for 10 years, the last 3 being with Bluebird Care Solihull. I started off out in the field as a care assistant and loved it from the get go - meeting and getting to know customers, supporting them and their family members to provide the best level of personalised care that I could. After a little it became more like visiting friends and family!
After my first year I was awarded Carer of the Year and I was promoted to the role of Care Co-Ordinator. This role allows me to work closely with our team of carers and our wonderful customers, ensuring we provide the quality level of service we are known for. In this role I have insight into different areas of the business which also allows me to progress in a professional capacity.
I honestly feel proud to work at Bluebird Solihull and for the opportunities it has given me.

Terri Salmon
Care Supervisor

I started with Bluebird Care Solihull in February 2020, having been in the care industry for 9 years. Having progressed within my career by completing my NVQ level 2 and 3, the previous companies I had worked for didn’t offer me further opportunities to progress and for me to keep learning but immediately, I knew I would have this chance at Bluebird.

After completing my 3 month probation period as a carer I was promoted to Senior Carer. Bluebird had given me the drive to progress again, providing me with the relevant training to broaden my knowledge and skillsets and understanding within my roles.

In August 2021, I was promoted to Care Supervisor, which I thoroughly enjoy. This role has given me the chance to work with and support our carers and ensure they get the training and development they require.

Care Supervisor

I have been a professional care assistant for 5 years and previous to that I was a personal care assistant for approximately 4 years providing complex end-life care. Until I joined Bluebird Care, much of my experience was within residential care homes and nursing homes specialising in more complex health conditions such as Dementia.

I have always loved my role as care assistant as I've always found it very rewarding. Since joining Bluebird Care Solihull in January 2021 I have been promoted twice, I was promoted to Senior Carer in April 2021 and most recently I was promoted to Care Supervisor in May this year.

I have recently enrolled onto my Level 3 which will help further my skills and knowledge in care and help me to participate in my role as Care Supervisor to the best of my ability, supporting both our customers and care staff.
