Munjal & Prafula Joshi
Directors

Prafula's Story

Prafula started off as a care worker at a large care company and worked herself up to be a care coordinator, but became frustrated with the way things were run. She could see inefficiencies and vast problems that made consistency of care difficult to provide. Determined that a home care company could do better she obtained all the necessary leadership and care management qualifications and founded Bluebird Care (Harrow) in 2007. Due to the great reputation she had built in Harrow she decided to open her second franchise (Brent) in 2012 to follow in the footsteps.   

We recognise that each person is valuable and unique with his and her own purpose, personality and history.

Munjal's Story

Munjal has a background in Business and Entrepreneurship, having worked for a number of start-ups and big companies including running his own shop. However, through his family he had personal experience of the poor level of care delivered and along with Prafula he passionately believed that care could and should be done better.

The package of care is specifically tailored to the needs of our customers and this is reviewed frequently to ensure it continues to meet the person’s needs.

Ushma, Munjal and Prafula’s daughter, has been a member of the Bluebird Care (Harrow)’s team since it first opened in 2007.

Ushma is qualified in Level 5 in Health and Social Care and holds a BSc Honours degree in Media Business, Ushma works very closely with her brother Chaitan who are both responsible for managing both Bluebird Care (Harrow and Brent).
