About us

Here at Bluebird Care Edinburgh, we've been helping people in our community since 2008. We joined Bluebird Care after struggling to find high-quality care at home for a loved one. When it wasn't possible, we decided to make a change. We are extremely passionate about the level of care we provide in Edinburgh and that is reflective in our Care Inspectorate reports. You can read more about our 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 Edinburgh with the following services:

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

No day is the same. Whilst we try to ensure our team visit the same customers to allow them to build relationships, they cover a wide range of services. It helps to keep the job fun whilst also rewarding.

Our Bluebirds

Every business is only as good as the foundations it is built on, and for us Bluebird Care Edinburgh's team of wonderful carers are the most important people in it. After all, it is they who provide the care to you or your loved ones 365 days of the year, come hail or shine.

They change lives for the better, by making a positive difference each and every day.

This has been most evident during the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic, where they have worked tirelessly during this time, sometimes going way beyond their normal duties, and for that, they have our undying thanks and gratitude.

All our Care team are directly employed by Bluebird Care Edinburgh; we are responsible for all their professional training and development, paid holidays, sick pay, professional insurance, etc etc. 

Over and above our legal obligations to them, we recognise and value them through training and development, remunerating them with market-leading salaries & benefits.

The message is a simple one, "Happy Carers = Happy Customers"!

Tracie Stevens
Office and Finance Manager of Bluebird Care Ayrshire, Edinburgh, and Glasgow South

Years ago, Tracie took on an opportunity to help run and build a cleaning business. 20 years later, this was built into a national company employing more than 1000 team members. Tracie’s main role was Director of Finance and Administration.

She then decided to give herself a new challenge and set up a cleaning business of her own, but this quickly turned into more of a care role as she would help the older customers with personal care as well as their cleaning. She found this the most rewarding so when an opportunity came up in 2011 to work with Bluebird Care she jumped at it.

She has had several roles within Bluebird Care but currently, she looks after all 3 offices alongside the finances. Making improvements and getting stuck into a challenge are some of Tracie’s favourites but she loves to speak to customers – hearing how much our Care Assistant helps them every day makes her smile.

Julie Forbes
Accounts Assistant for Bluebird Care Ayrshire, Edinburgh & Glasgow South

I have had various roles throughout my career, I previously worked within the care industry as a carer when my two daughters were very young. I left this role to move from a small town on the Scottish borders to Edinburgh where I took on a job in the courier industry. I loved logistics as it was like solving a puzzle, getting items from A to B without delay. Daily dealings with customers, government agencies and various logistic providers have given me the transferable communication skills to deal at ease with a range of people confidently.

I took on numerous roles within that company during my time there, but I found the most interesting and best suited to me was working with accounts. I want to continue and further my career in accounts and feel my new role as Accounts Assistant at Bluebird Care will help develop my existing skillset and challenge me.

Angela Young
Senior Coordinator for Bluebird Care Edinburgh

Angela joined the Care Sector 12 years ago when she began looking after her grandfather. After he passed away, she knew she had a desire to continue within the care sector. She wanted to help care for people less fortunate than herself by pricing those in the community with quality home care and bringing a smile to their faces.

Angela started with Bluebird Care as a Care Assistant, progressed to On-Call Coordinator, and then she was offered the role as a supervisor but assisted with coordinating when needed. She has now landed a role as a senior coordinator and has completed her SVQ4 in Health and Social Care and achieved the James Watt Level 2 Dementia certificate.

Lindsey Clark
People Development and Engagement Officer for Bluebird Care Ayrshire, Edinburgh & Glasgow South

Lindsey has had a varied career background but over 5 years ago, Lindsey was looking for home care for her mum and found that the way the Care Assistant dealt and interacted with her mum struck a chord with her. Helping others, less fortunate than herself, in the comfort of their own home appealed to her. Like fate, a role came up with Bluebird Care and Lindsey joined the team as a Care Assistant and loved making a difference in people’s lives.

Since then, Lindsey has progressed to be a Recruitment Resourcer to help expand our team of Care Assistants so that we could help more people in the community. She has a passion for learning and developing people to ensure only the very best care is being delivered so she has landed a job as a People Development and Engagement Officer.

In his spare time, he likes to go to the theatre, look at British classic cars and go travelling.
