Meet the team
Graham’s background is in business, where he trained as an architect and ran a busy Architectural practice, before using his management expertise to build and run a national charity in outdoor education and training.
He likes to support vulnerable people, and now uses his business and problem solving skills to ensure the Bluebird Care team are resourced and equipped to deliver high quality care for our customers.
Graham also wants to build strategic partnerships across the private and public sectors, to provide joined up services in Health and Social care, which are innovative and cost effective in meeting individual needs for the most vulnerable people.
Outside work Graham likes sailing, has been walking the Cornish Coast path with Carol, and is involved in community life through local church and club activities.
Carol is passionate about care in the community with 30 years NHS experience as a Health Visitor working with elderly, families and children. She loves to meet individual needs, finding solutions and bringing relief to improve quality of life for those who need it most.
Her second love is for teaching and mentoring, passing on her knowledge to a generation of student Nurses, Health Visitors and now Care Workers, encouraging them to provide the high standards of care she expects of herself.
She also has practical management expertise, working in multi-agency Health and Social Care teams, to encourage joined up services which can deliver high quality, person-centred care throughout the community.
At Bluebird Care Mid and West Cornwall, Carol sees these passions fulfilled in overseeing and supporting a skilled work force of carers to provide consistently high standards of care for our customers, who rely on us for meeting their daily needs.
Away from work, Carol keeps up with family and friends, and likes contributing to local church and community life. She has been walking the Cornish Coast path in easy stages, and enjoys fair weather sailing in warm places.
Registered Care Manager
With over 14 years of dedicated experience in Health and Social Care, my journey began as a novice domiciliary care assistant, visiting numerous customers daily. Witnessing the impact of brightening someone's day became a pivotal moment, affirming my passion and commitment to this field.
Eager to expand my knowledge, I pursued and completed my Level 2 and 3 Diploma in Health and Social Care, progressing to supervisory roles and eventually stepping into management. Ensuring high standards of care and support in the community became my focus.
Seven years ago, my wife and I made a conscious decision to transition from the hustle and bustle of city life to the serene beauty of Cornwall. This move presented the opportunity for further growth, leading me to achieve my Level 5 Leadership and Management in Health and Social Care.
Joining Bluebird Care Mid and West Cornwall in 2019 as an Area Manager marked another significant milestone. Through dedication and hard work, I progressed to senior management and currently hold the role of Registered Manager.
Beyond my professional endeavors, I find joy in spending quality time both on and by the water. Walking along the beach with my loyal dog, Ruby, and cherishing moments with my wonderful wife are beloved activities outside of work
