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.

We are looking for people who are passionate about great care. If you share our commitment to provide the best home care services, get in touch with us today.

Meet our team of care professionals

Bernadette and Hugo Mills
Owners

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 and Pete the dog. 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.
