What makes our homecare 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.

Care Manager

I have been working for Bluebird Care since January 2016, with my role being a Supervisor. Before starting with Bluebird Care I had 6 years’ experience in various care settings.

I’m very passionate about my job, I enjoy the daily challenges this role brings and work well as part of the team. I also provide support to the senior management team. I’m confident within my job role due to the experience and support I have received within Bluebird Care.  I love my job knowing that I contribute to customers being able to stay in their own homes promoting their independence, as well as supporting the team to deliver this service.

Live-in-Care Manager

My career with Bluebird started in 2014. After working in a family run residential care setting where senior roles were taken for the foreseeable future, I wanted an employer who offered progression and that is what I got! My roles have included Carer, Support Supervisor, Supervisor and now Live-in Care Manager

I am the point of contact for our live in service, dealing with queries, concerns and requests.  I enjoy getting to know our customers as individuals and their needs and working with the live in care team to ensure they receive the care that they require to enable them to live in their own homes where they feel comfortable and the care is focused on them.

I thoroughly enjoy my job, it’s more often than not fast paced, challenging and no two days are ever the same.

Michelle
Michelle
Supervisor

I started my career with Bluebird Care in 2014 after returning to work having had my second child. Having two young children and a partner who works full time I started as a part-time Care Assistant working evenings and weekends, which fit in perfectly with family life. As time has gone on, I have been able to offer more availability and progressed to the role of Support Supervisor and now acting Supervisor for the South Oxfordshire area.

I worked in retail management prior to working in the care industry and at that time my Grandfather had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. He started with domiciliary care but as the disease progressed, he had to move into a residential setting. I witnessed things, good and bad, and decided I needed to help care for our older generation.

Support Supervisor

I started my role within Bluebird Care in January 2020. I started with Bluebird Care due to having two very small children, the hours worked very well around my family and I started as a care assistant working evenings and weekends. I enjoyed my role as a care assistant but felt I needed more from my job. I soon became a Support Supervisor for South Oxfordshire and the Live-In teams. I have since enjoyed very busy days & no two days have been the same which is great!
