They say ‘home is where the heart is’ and we at Bluebird Care keep our customers safe and cared for in theirs.​

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.

Being a part of our dedicated Bluebird Care team is immensely rewarding, but it also demands commitment and professionalism. 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.

Meet our team of care professionals

Susan & Philip King
Directors

Susan has a management and administration background and Philip has worked as a Business Consultant for many years.

We have both come naturally to care; Philip having grown up with 3 of his grandparents living with the family at some time, and Susan looking after the older generation in her family, with Philip, when the ‘middle generation’ moved abroad. We have also been respite carers in our own home, looking after two children on the autistic spectrum.

We decided to start our own care service having experienced variable service when we sought care for four of our relatives - from hourly care, live-in care and residential care - over a period of 19 years, and we feel that we can use that experience to make a positive difference to people’s experience of care. 

When needed, we found private homecare services to be invisible, good care difficult to obtain, the standard inconsistent, and the person requiring the care was not always treated with the respect and dignity they deserve. We knew we could improve on that!

We started Bluebird Care (Derbyshire Dales & Amber Valley) on the high street in our local area to deliver excellent quality care to our community, allowing people who choose to use our service to live as contented and as independent a life as possible.  It is a privilege to be part of people’s lives and very rewarding when we experience the positive reactions to our care from customers and their families.  We are proud that Bluebird Care is a familiar part of the community and our service is called upon in an everyday way.

An unexpected pleasure has been our role as employers: we are proud of our staff, who are a well-trained and happy team and we are pleased to offer opportunities to work in a company where staff are valued and care standards are excellent.

Jane McKenning-Wain
Customer Care Manager

Jane began her career in care in 1995, working as an administrator in a care home; quickly developing her role and incorporating care skills to become Deputy Manager.  Within this role, Jane developed a passion for delivering high standards of person-centred care.  Jane went on to become Registered Manager of a Dementia Care Home, where she obtained a degree in End-of-Life Care and Long-term Health Conditions.  Following this, Jane worked in a community-based role commissioned by the NHS, working alongside the Virtual Ward Team (community-based NHS professionals).  This gave Jane great insight into how the community health teams operate and the services available to people living in the community.

 

“In 2015, I began working for Bluebird Care Derbyshire Dales & Amber Valley.  The ethos of the owners reflected my own – to provide excellent standards of holistic care and support to adults in the community, to enable them to stay safe and well and independent in their own homes. This ethos is shared by our team of care assistants and our quality is achieved through excellent teamwork, communication, leadership and training”
