Sammie Carr

Care Manager

Sammie has been working in the care industry since 2012, joining Bluebird Care in January 2017.  Initially she worked as a Coordinator for the business, moving to Live-in Care Supervisor in April 2019 and then in June 2020 promoted again to Live-in Care Manager working across both the North Hampshire and West Berkshire offices.

As the Live-in Care Manager, Sammie leads and supports the company's Live-in Care Supervisors who are the first people anyone contacting the company about live-in care will speak to.   The whole live-in care team is focussed on taking the time to understand people's needs so they can learn how to best help them.  The relevant Supervisor will then visit the prospective customer and their family to carry out a full care assessment and write a comprehensive care plan, ensuring that it is tailored to suit them. The Live-in Care team then match a live-in care assistant, introduce them and liaise with the customer and their relatives on a regular basis to ensure their care is well managed and delivers exactly what is required.  They then arrange and complete ongoing customer reviews and ensure regular supervisions and observations are completed with the company's live-in care assistants to ensure their practice is at the highest possible standard, their training is regularly updated and that they are happy in their assignment.

Sammie has acquired a range of knowledge whilst working in social care including a level 5 qualification and she has a wealth of experience in delivering all types of care at home as well as leading a team of csare professionals.
