Meet the team

We work closely with our customers and their families, and we will actively encourage an open dialog about the provision of care to identify changing needs. We constantly strive to attain excellence in everything we do which means knowing what is important to a customer; such as time keeping and care worker suitability, or the security of offering the same care worker to provide consistency of care.

We would be delighted to hear from anyone who is seeking or sourcing homecare, or would simply like to talk to someone about the services we can provide. Please feel free to call us or come into the office where the team will be happy to discuss your requirements or answer any questions you may have.

Carlene Daniel

Care Manager

I began my Care Career in 2013. I started as a Care and Support worker,  making my progression to Care Manager in 2018. I started with Bluebird Care in 2014. Prior to working in care, I worked for 10 years at RAF Halton completing a variety of tasks. I thoroughly enjoy my job, no day is the same. I have met the majority of our customer’s which means  I know their needs and we have a great rapport. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my family, friends and travelling to new places home and abroad.  

Leah Buckingham

Office Manager

I started working in care in 2002. Over the years I gained more experience and knowledge which led to me becoming a Branch Manager in 2007. I took some time out of care between 2008-2010 and again in 2012 to raise my children. I started working for Bluebird Care in 2014 as a Care Supervisor and quickly progressed to become the Recruitment & Training Manager. I have completed a Level 5 Diploma in Leadership & Management. I spend my spare time with my three boys and my family.

Sammie Macknight

Care Supervisor

I started my very first job in care at 18 and have stayed in the care industry ever since.  I have been working in the care sector for 8 years and joined Bluebird Care in 2015.  After working as a Care Worker for a couple of years, I left to have my beautiful daughter.  When it was time to return to work I could not wait to come back to Bluebird Care and soon fell straight back into it.  I then join the office team as a Supervisor and now could not see myself working in any other sector.  I love my job, meeting interesting people every day and making a difference in someone's life.
