Sheree brings a wealth of professional management expertise to Bluebird Care. Prior to owning Bluebird Care Leeds North, Sheree was a Quality Manager with the Bluebird Care Franchise Support Centre, providing advice and support to around forty Bluebird Care franchises in the North and East Midlands region.
Bringing with her, 18 year's experience in the health and social care sector in a variety of roles, Sheree initially worked as a front-line Support Worker, Registered Manager and then Senior Manager of multiple services. She worked as a Quality Assurance Manager for a large Yorkshire based Housing Association and then started her journey with Bluebird Care working for the Franchise Support Centre before investing in her own Bluebird Care franchise in early 2019.
A career in the social care sector has given Sheree the opportunity to lead a range of services including domiciliary care, care homes, extra care, supported living and day services and has experience of working with older people, people with learning disabilities, mental health issues, drug and alcohol misuse, homelessness, chaotic lifestyles and children and families.
Throughout her career, Sheree gained vital knowledge of the care industry and understands what excellent care looks like and more importantly, the impact that poor care has on the people who receive it.
"Bluebird Care stands for exactly the type of quality care provision that I want to be associated with. I knew the moment I became involved with Bluebird Care that this brand represented the type of quality services that I’m happy to put my name to. Coming from a care and quality background, I self-assess our service on a daily basis and I’m only satisfied with a service that holds dignity and respect at its heart and is good enough for my own loved ones.”
Sheree is a local Leeds girl and is very proud to be able to bring outstanding quality home care to her local community.
My name is Sophie and I'm the Care Manager at Bluebird Care Leeds North. I started at Bluebird Care as a Care Assistant in 2012 and absolutely loved it. I was promoted to Support Supervisor in 2014 and further promoted to Care Supervisor in 2015. In April 2018 I became the Care Manager. My role is to operationally manage the business, this involves delivering our business plan, supporting my colleagues to provide excellence in care and ensuring we exceed the expectations set out by our regulator, the Care Quality Commission.
I'm so passionate about this company and feel that my experience working my way up the ladder has helped me greatly, in my role as Care Manager. I understand what's needed at every level of this business to make it a success.
As you'll see from my colleague’s profiles, we are a team who have progressed within Bluebird Care. This speaks volumes about our passion for the business. Continued professional development is important to me and my team. I'm so proud of the team we have here at Bluebird Care and couldn’t be happier to be able to represent such a wonderful, caring bunch of people.
My name is Claire and my role is to organise our customer’s visits according to their preferences and plan our Care Assistants work. I have worked at Bluebird Care for over 10 years and still love coming to work every day. I know our customers and team well and really enjoy the challenges every new day brings.
My work is key to the smooth day to day running of the business and the delivery of reliable, safe and consistent care. I enjoy speaking to lots of different people and I find helping people really rewarding. I love making a difference every day to the quality of people's lives.
I have worked in the care industry for over 12 years and joined Bluebird Care Leeds North in June 2014 as a Care Assistant. Whilst at Bluebird Care, I have completed my NVQ Levels 2 and 3 in Health and social care, allowing me to gain recognised qualifications whilst continuing to gain experience working out in the community. I'm currently working towards a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership in Health and Social Care.
In November 2017 I was promoted to Care Supervisor and this role involves meeting customers, setting up new care packages and putting tailored care plans in place to meet the need of our lovely customers. I also carry out risk assessments with customers and my colleagues and review care plans regularly to check we are meeting our customers' needs.
I love working in care because I enjoy meeting new people and thoroughly enjoy working as part of a team. Bluebird Care is a great place to work and I'm proud to be part of such a great team, where we all take pride in delivering consistent, outstanding care.
Doris is a three-year old miniature Dachshund and our resident Therapy and Office Dog. She loves to be around people and is a funny little character!
“Therapy dog” is a general term used to describe a dog that is used to benefit people in a therapeutic way. Office dogs are known to improve mood, decrease stress levels and even improve productivity and we do like to keep busy at Bluebird Care! She’s always a great point of conversation when we welcome visitors to our office.
Did you know?.... that petting a dog for just 15 minutes releases the feel-good hormones serotonin, prolactin, oxytocin and lowers the stress hormone cortisol.
Doris works hard in our business to keep smiles on people’s faces and is available to accompany our Care Assistants on visits to our customers homes or on gentle walks if our customers have a special love for dogs. Many people who require our services have kept their own pets in the past and although they may no longer be able to care for a pet of their own, they still love to spend time with animals.
If you would like to speak to us about spending time with Doris during your care visits, please get in touch with our team on 0113 258 9677 or email us at email@example.com.
