Meet our team of care professionals

John and Suzzanne Elgar
Directors

Husband and wife team John and Suzzanne are passionate believers that high quality consistent care at home should be available and accessible to everyone as a basic right. 

The decision to move into provision of care came about after a family member became more dependant and required significant care.

"Without my grandmother, the idea of a service which emulates what you would expect for your family would never have come into fruition, and the idea of running a care service, let alone an 'Outstanding' one, would never have occured to us," said Suzzanne

The care offered in some cases was not of a good standard and this has led to a partnership with Bluebird Care who we feel hold the same standards and core beliefs surrounding care provision as ourselves.

John

John brings to Bluebird Care Cherwell a wealth of business experience having spent the last 25 years in the IT industry working for and with a large number of global companies providing business and sales solutions for a wide range of customers. John will provide business operational skills to the Bluebird Care Cherwell team.

Suzzanne

Suzzanne comes from a financial background working within some of the major financial institutions before having a career break to establish a family unit. She has also worked within the community as a volunteer worker and really understands the difference good quality care delivered in familiar surroundings can have on the individual concerned.

We feel that the care we provide should be second to none and that it should be delivered with the level of professionalism compassion and respect that we would expect for our families.

Marko Grubnic
Customer Care Support Officer

My name is Marko and my first experience in care was 12 years ago when I volunteered one summer at a Red Cross day centre.  I absolutely loved my time there and the company of the people who attended the centre.

I then studied Pharmacology at Portsmouth University to further my education. Once I completed University, I found employment   in a customer facing role where I stayed for 6 years as I really enjoy meeting new people and that human connection.

When Covid hit and we went into lockdown I was placed on furlough. This gave me time to reflect and made me realise that I wanted to do something more with my life and really help people which was why I made the decision to go into care and I have never looked back.

After researching local companies, I first joined a small company to gain valuable experience and then once the opportunity at Bluebird Care presented Itself was an easy decision for me. Having personally known John and Suzanne through being a friend of their son for many years I knew how dedicated they were to helping people in their local community.

From the first day that I came in to meet the team at my interview there was a great energy within the team and a sense of unity that I knew I wanted to be a part of.

Hayley Lewis
Senior Carer

I joined the Bluebird team back in 2015, a few years previous, my Nan who was sadly diagnosed with Lung Cancer, came to live with me and my family for her final few months. I began to witness how much she was struggling with day to day tasks such as getting dressed. I have a vivid memory helping my nan to get dressed after having collapsed on the stairs and we had rang for the paramedics, who then admitted my nan to hospital. It is then I thought that there must be so many other people out there who need help at home and wondered if there was a job that entailed this.

I joined Bluebird as a Care Assistant and absolutely fell in love with the job. Meeting such a wide variety of individuals, getting to know them and their life is so interesting and is such an integral part of this job which is hard to find elsewhere. It is such a pleasure to be able to assist our customers to carry on living in their own homes. You get to know how someone likes their tea in their favourite mug, how someone likes their bed made or knowing they like to wear colour co-ordinated outfits and it is these little things that make such a difference to our customers life which, in turn, is a very rewarding and heart-warming feeling.

Two and a half years in, I decided I wanted to use my experience as a Care Assistant as a stepping stone into a Nursing Career (which I know many do!). However, after a few months of working in a hospital, I felt it was not for me and rang Suzzanne explaining how much I missed this job. The next day, I was back in the office for an interview and the same day was offered to rejoin as a Senior Carer.

I am so glad I came back, I've never looked back and can't imagine myself doing anything else! 

Georgie Steadman
Senior Carer

My name is Georgie and I started my Bluebird journey as a Care Assistant three and a half years ago.

Previously I had been working in the catering industry for five years until I made the decision to get out of my comfort zone completely.

After witnessing the amazing work Bluebird Care provided for a very close family friend making her comfortable at home for the last stage of her life,  I knew this was the company I wanted to start my career with.

From the beginning during the interview process everyone was so friendly and welcoming making me feel at home, so I knew this was the job for me.

After my first shift supporting customers in our local community, I honestly thought I couldn’t continue working for Bluebird Care . My nerves got the better of me but due to the support offered by all the team at Bluebird Care,  here I am 3 years later starting a new position as a Senior Carer where I get to mentor and train the new carers into their new role at Bluebird Care.

I absolutely love making an impact on people’s life even if it’s for a chat and a cup of tea. Every day is different with new challenges and training to keep your mind busy and improve on your skills set. I will forever be grateful for Bluebird Care for the opportunity to meet and support people in  our local community.
