During her career as a Registered Manager she developed a passion to provide compassionate care to the elderly and vulnerable in our society.

Her experience and expertise in Clinical Governance stood her in good stead through 3 regulatory inspections.

Selvie is also a qualified trainer and delivers training to Bluebird Care staff in clinical areas such as Epilepsy, diabetes to name a few to ensure that our staff are able to provide care to a broad spectrum of customers.

Richard Smith

Registered Manager

Richard has had a varied career, spanning the telecom and health care industries. In his most recent roles, Richard ran a large nursing home in the New Forest as well as managing a busy home care business in Poole. Richard first started in care working in Dementia Services with Age Concern Hampshire. Richard has a real passion for supporting people living at home after supporting his grandfather in law who had a massive brain injury which left him needing continuous support at home. It was during this time where he realised how important great quality home care was. 

Prior to care Richard has had a breadth of experience running charities as well holding senior manager positions in various telecoms companies. Richard is known to enjoy a challenge and even spent a few years running a Jazz Bar in Keynsham near Bristol.

When Richard is not at work, he can be found either swimming or sailing, having participated in ocean yacht races as well as more leisurely cruises around the Greek Islands. Richard has two children who go to school locally who often try to accompany him sailing. Richard’s home is a haven for cats as his partner is a research vet who specialises in arthritis in cats (and humans) and they currently have a Greek street cat and Ringwood street cat living with them.

Nina Kiff

Deputy Manager

Nina has been working in the care sector for almost 12 years. She has worked in a variety of sectors including children’s disabilities, domiciliary and care home settings. Nina began her career in the care industry out of a love of looking after people, she has worked with younger people but has found her knowledge and skills to be best suited to working with elderly people within the community. 

Nina has continued to develop her knowledge and skills over her 12 years in the industry and is currently working towards completing her level 5 in health and social care. 

When Nina is not at work she can be found spending time with her partner and father who she also cares for outside of work.
