Meet the team

Our Bluebirds

Every business is only as good as the foundations it is built on, and for us Bluebird Care Edinburgh's team of wonderful carers are the most important people in it. After all, it is they who provide the care to you or your loved ones 365 days of the year, come hail or shine.

They change lives for the better, by making a positive difference each and every day.

This has been most evident during the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic, where they have worked tirelessly during this time, sometimes going way beyond their normal duties, and for that, they have our undying thanks and gratitude.

All our Care team are directly employed by Bluebird Care Edinburgh; we are responsible for all their professional training and development, paid holidays, sick pay, professional insurance, etc etc. 

Over and above our legal obligations to them, we recognise and value them through training and development, remunerating them with market-leading salaries & benefits.

The message is a simple one, "Happy Carers = Happy Customers"!

Jane Perry

Director of Bluebird Care Ayrshire, Edinburgh, and Glasgow South

Jane Perry started her home care journey with Bluebird Care in 2008 alongside her husband, John Perry. She started off delivering high-quality home care in Edinburgh and then ventured into Glasgow South and Ayrshire.

Jane entered the care sector after looking for a home care package for her grandmother in Glasgow South. She was appalled at the lack of knowledge, services, and general attitude of the companies she contacted. After extensive research, she chose Bluebird Care as they shared her ethos of providing a good old-fashioned service along with the ongoing support required to get her business up and running.

With Jane’s strong leadership together with her management team, she ensures that the interests and well-being of all customers and her team are met. Working with multidisciplinary teams and integrating with other leaders in the Social Care sector, Jane is driven to deliver the best, home care service possible.

Outside of work, Jane loves listening to music, good food and wine, spending time with her family and let’s not forget taking her dog, Robbie for a walk on the beach.

John Perry

Director of Bluebird Care Ayrshire, Edinburgh, and Glasgow South

John Perry started his home care journey with Bluebird Care in 2008 alongside his wife, Jane Perry. He started off delivering high-quality home care in Edinburgh and then ventured into Glasgow South and Ayrshire.

John spends much of his time working in his local office, Edinburgh. He is normally the first point of contact when someone is looking for care for themselves or a loved one. He is extremely passionate about providing quality customer service so will always spend time getting to know his customer’s needs and ensuring he answers any questions.

Outside of work, John’s interests are Family, Football (Hibs), Golf (8), Trainspotting, The life, and times of Vincent Van Gogh: Most importantl of all, he is a husband to Jane, a father to Nick and Adam and a proud ‘Papa’ to his granddaughters Eva and Alyssa.

Geraldine O'Reilly

Registered Care Manager for Bluebird Care Edinburgh

Geraldine joined the care sector at the age of seventeen as a Care Assistant in a private residential setting working alongside adults and children with learning disabilities. She worked there while attending University to complete my Honours degree in Applied Social Studies. After obtaining her qualification, she moved to Scotland from Ireland and joined the Care at Home sector and states she has never looked back. She is passionate about delivering high-quality homecare service to people within the community and is honoured to be a part of the Bluebird Care team.

Outside of work, you will find Geraldine spending time with her family, returning to Ireland as often as she can, reading and yoga.

Tracie Stevens

Office and Finance Manager of Bluebird Care Ayrshire, Edinburgh, and Glasgow South

Years ago, Tracie took on an opportunity to help run and build a cleaning business. 20 years later, this was built into a national company employing more than 1000 team members. Tracie’s main role was Director of Finance and Administration.

She then decided to give herself a new challenge and set up a cleaning business of her own, but this quickly turned into more of a care role as she would help the older customers with personal care as well as their cleaning. She found this the most rewarding so when an opportunity came up in 2011 to work with Bluebird Care she jumped at it.

She has had several roles within Bluebird Care but currently, she looks after all 3 offices alongside the finances. Making improvements and getting stuck into a challenge are some of Tracie’s favourites but she loves to speak to customers – hearing how much our Care Assistant helps them every day makes her smile.

Nicola Whyte

Supervisor for Bluebird Care Edinburgh

Nicola stumbled across the care sector when she was seventeen and began working in residential home care. She loved the fact she was making a difference in people’s lives; even sitting and having a cup of tea with someone would make their day.

She quickly progressed into a senior post which involved assisting with GP calls, administering medication, and mentoring staff. After taking a break to start a family, Nicola completed her SVQ 3 and joined Bluebird Care to assist with delivering fantastic care at home. As a supervisor role, not only does she care but she also helps the wider team.
