More people than ever are choosing to receive care at home, but what makes them choose Bluebird Care?

Our staff members are the face of our company and it’s our care teams that enable our customers to stay in the comfort of their own homes. Our teams provide vital care and support as well as building and growing relationships, bringing smiles to the faces of our customers, laughing, sharing experiences, listening to stories and sometimes wiping away tears.

Working with some of the most vulnerable members of society can give enormous satisfaction to the right person. It offers the opportunity to make a real difference to people’s lives; a vocation rather than just a job.

Sue MacLaughlin
Franchise Owner

Sue started Bluebird Care Coleraine in 2009 following her experience of home care for a close family member.  Sue was disappointed with the quality and reliability of the service provided and believed that a better standard of home care should be available.

Prior to Bluebird Care, Sue had a successful career working in the health and leisure sector.  From her previous work developing health initiatives, community engagement, and managing teams she was able to bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in starting Bluebird Care Coleraine.

Sue holds extremely high standards and expectations in the delivery of our care at home service.  She believes that the reputation of Bluebird Care Coleraine is attributed to our amazing care assistants delivering our services, and the support of the management team.  Sue believes in nurturing her team at all levels and is always keen to support their development and learning.
