About us

Here at Bluebird Care Ayrshire, we've only been helping people in our community since 2021. However, our experience is vast. We started our journey with Bluebird Care Edinburgh in 2008 after struggling to find high-quality care at home for a loved one. When it wasn't possible, we decided to make a change. A few years later, we decided to branched out and took on Bluebird Care Glasgow South to allow us to help more people and here we are now in Ayrshire. You can find our Care Inspectorate reports here.

To ensure we deliver the very best care, we work alongside our customers and their families to tailor our services to help our customers stay in control of their own care for as long as they are able to. As our customer's needs can change, we continually review their care plans to ensure we are as adaptive as possible. 

We can help people in Ayrshire with the following services:

  • Companionship
  • Housekeeping 
  • Live-in Care
  • Making Nutritional Meals 
  • Medication 
  • Personal Care
  • Respite Care
  • Shopping
  • Sleeping Nights
  • Waking Nights

If you find yourself unfulfilled with your current job and want to know you’ve made a positive difference each day, a career in care could be for you. It can provide an amazing and varied career pathway. No two days are the same, and you’ll have the opportunity to meet some amazing people and hear their fascinating stories. You’ll also have the knowledge that because of the vital work you, and the wider Bluebird Care Ayrshire team do, our customers are able to remain safe and happy in their own homes.

Nina Maclean
Head of People

I have 10 years’ experience in the care at home sector, all of which have been with Bluebird Care Edinburgh.  I have been lucky to have been able to grow and develop my skills, during this time, from a care coordinator to my current role.  As Head of People it allows me to work with a great team across Edinburgh, Glasgow and now Ayrshire, to ensure that we recruit, induct and support amazing care staff. I am passionate about training, career development, supporting our employees and creating a positive working environment for all.  As part of the management team, I am in a privileged position to be able to shape the way of the future for our customers and employees.

Outside of work, I am mum to Edith who keeps me on my toes but teaches me a lot about myself and the world.  I have a wonderful husband Neil, who makes me laugh daily and reminds me that I can achieve whatever I set I mind to.  I love to keep fit and still use my personal training days to help others, achieve their goals.

Peter Stevenson
Recruitment Resourcer

have been involved within the recruitment industry for over 30 years at various levels throughout my career, being REC accredited and part CIPD qualified. I truly understand the importance of listening, engaging and delivering for prospective candidates, having latterly worked for a large health organisation managing a large area, ensuring medication reached vulnerable people in the community. 


This enthused me to move into a care role that would utilise my skills and add value to the Bluebird Care family ethos; the feeling I get when providing a dedicated and caring individual from initial contact through to first day induction …. Is “Brill”

Valerie Chan
Business Support

I graduated in 2015, achieving a 2:1 Business with Tourism degree from the Northumbria University Business School. I spent two months in Hong Kong working at a PR and advertising firm during my second year summer holidays, and I also achieved a First in the Undergraduate Consultancy Project which focused on marketing for the National Dyspraxia Foundation.

I moved to Edinburgh in 2016 and got married in 2018. Moving to Edinburgh was the official start of my career and dare I say the start of “adulting”. My first role was working in the travel industry and supporting the city breaks team, here I established my business support experience and copywriting for both physical and digital. Though my interests are within travel, I felt I needed to broaden my horizon and move on to develop my skills elsewhere. After this, I worked at a wine merchants as Sales Support, here I was learning a completely new product and supporting sales teams on the field and in the office. Although an exciting role to have, I felt a great desire to give back to the community which is completely different to my past leisure and hospitality industry experience.

The perfect timing arrived  when I came across the job advert for a Business Support at Bluebird Care. I am very grateful to have started this role especially in the Covid-19 pandemic, to help and support Bluebird Care in these times and see my colleagues work so hard is inspiring. I am learning more about the care industry and I am grateful for the opportunity to put my social media and copywriting skills to the test too!

Lindsey Clark
People Development & Engagement Officer

My career background initially was always secretarial. When my children were small I wanted something that would give me to flexibility to enable me to work from home, so I started a small ironing business with a few clients. As my children moved onto High school I felt the time was right to re-evaluate my career and see what my next challenge would be!

Around about the same time, my mother had been receiving care at home and I was taken with the way the carers dealt with and interacted (or not) with her and the whole thing struck a chord with me. The whole concept of looking after others, less fortunate than myself, in the comfort of their own home really appealed to me so I did some research on the sector. Upon reading, it made me want to make this my new profession as I felt I would be good fit for any good organisation willing to take a chance on someone who never did this type of thing before, but someone who had a good heart and was keen to learn.

I applied to Bluebird Care Edinburgh, as I’d heard great things about them, was interviewed and offered a role which I readily accepted. I really enjoyed the initial week induction training and felt I was ready to start my new career as a Care Assistant.Being a Carer really made me feel that I was making a difference, I loved going into my Customers houses and making a difference to their daily lives.It made me realise that even the little things meant such a lot to them. My role gave me such a feeling of job satisfaction that I have made a difference to people lives.

I have been with Bluebird Care for 5 years now and have really enjoyed it all. I am very keen to progress my career and when a position became available working as the  Recruitment Resourcer, I jumped at the chance to further enhance my care sector experience. I loved seeing how the new staff progressed, from my initial contact through to the delivery of care and some of the wonderful comments from both colleagues and customers alike.

I have a passion for learning and developing people within the workforce and overall care sector and I am proud to say that my new role as People Development & Engagement Officer has re-invigorated me and I am thoroughly enjoying this new role within Bluebird Care as I still feel that I can make a difference, but just in a different area.
