Kerry’s Story

I came to work for Bluebird Care Swale 4 years ago, I had a little care experience after caring for my Mum until she passed away. I really wanted to make a difference in people’s lives and chose a career in care. 

I love my role as a Care Assistant and find it so rewarding.  Making a difference to people with just a smile or a kind word is such a lovely job.

I now work in the Office 3 days a week as Care Supervisor and lead the other Care Assistants to strive to be amazing Carer’s and to be the best that they can be.  We are a team here at Bluebird Care Swale and work together to ensure that all our Customers have the care they need, when they need it.

I was proud to receive the extra mile and long standing carer award at the Annual Bluebird Care Swale awards in 2019

Sarah’s Story

I came to work for Bluebird Care Swale in 2017. I have worked alongside them to grow and develop my career as a Care Assistant. I enjoy working for Bluebird Care Swale because of the flexibility and variety of their work. Working for Bluebird Care Swale is like having a second family that has supported me and enabled me to progress and grow in my career I appreciate the opportunity to learn new things and to continually develop myself a Care Assistant.  I went off on maternity leave to have my Son, and I was keen to return in 2019.  I had missed my regular Customers and was happy to be back to care for and help others.  I feel my role in the Community is important as some Customers only see us and we can bring a smile to their faces.

Sue's Story

I have been a care worker with Bluebird Care Swale for over 4 years, the job fell in my lap but feel that I have found my niche, I find the job thoroughly rewarding and look forward to seeing the people I care for. My  Customers look forward to seeing me, and I am happy to say that I receive lovely feedback from them via the Office.  It is a great career to get into and so rewarding and fulfilling.  

Recently I became an I Care Ambassador, where I attend meetings and events promoting my role as a Care Assistant.  I encourage other people to take the leap and work in care
