Bernadette and Hugo Mills

Since 2012, Bernadette and Hugo’s Bluebird Care franchises have been delivering home care to enable customers to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their own home. Delivering the highest quality of home care and assistance is their absolute goal and the team would be delighted to hear from anyone who is seeking support, from short daily visits to 24-hr care, for themselves or for a loved one, or who would simply like to talk to someone about the services we provide.
Bernadette and Hugo Mills live in the New Forest with their 3 children. Having previously worked in finance in London, the couple took the lifestyle decision to live and work locally. Once the children were old enough, Bernadette began to look for a business they could run which would give them family flexibility but also a bit of a challenge. They were also very aware of the growing local (and national) demand for care at home. Starting their first Bluebird Care franchise in the New Forest in 2012 certainly didn’t disappoint!

Driven by a passion to deliver high-quality care, they subsequently opened offices in Southampton (2015), Totton (2016), and, in 2017, took over the Portsmouth franchise too. Yet it is not their intention to build the biggest care business, but rather to deliver the best service on a local level through staff who genuinely care. A key focus is establishing a joint partnership between all the teams in order to provide outstanding daily home care and live-in care.

Bernadette and Hugo are particularly enthusiastic about supporting the local communities in which they now operate. Taking part in community and charity activities is very important to them, and they are as ‘hands-on’ in appearing at local events as they are in ensuring their businesses deliver care of the highest standard. You may well have seen one or both of them on the back of a carnival float, dangling from a zip wire over Portsmouth harbour, running an inflatable obstacle course or serving tea and cake in a church hall.
