Meet the team

Becky Clements

Registered Manager

Becky's career in the Care sector began in 2007 as a Support Worker working with adults with challenges around their mental health, including dementia.

 

With this experience Becky joined Bluebird Care Sevenoaks as a Care Assistant shortly after the office opened in 2012. Within a year, Becky's excellent work with customers earned her progression to Supervisor level, a role she enjoyed immensely. 

 

With a change in management 2018, Becky was promoted to Deputy Manager and became Care Manager herself less than a year later - a promotion thoroughly deserved.

 

She believes passionately in the Bluebird Care ethos, which places customers always at the centre of the Care process. Becky really enjoys the variety of her role as well as the occassional the challenges! She takes great pride in being part of a team which provides a first-class service enabling vulnerable adults around Sevenoaks to remain living independently in their own homes.

Karen Kutchera

Live-in Care & Deputy Care Manager

Kari first joined Bluebird Care in 2012 as a Care Assistant, having been a paramedic for 11 years and a pre-school teacher before that. We were sad to lose Kari when she left the area but very happy to see her return in 2016 on the Live-in team, where she was instrumental in establishing Bluebird Care as renowned local provider of Live-in Care.

 

In 2019 Kari spent a number of months with another well-known local provider of “Self-employed” Live-in Carers, but was unimpressed with their operation. As a “supply-only” service, there was none of the silky-smooth customer service, bespoke care planning or personal attention to detail that she was able to afford her customers as a facilitator of a locally-managed, premium Live-in Care service.

 

Naturally we were delighted to welcome Kari back to the Bluebird Care family, where her role is to respond to new Live-in Care enquiries, “onboard” new customers, ensure their Care remains appropriate and up-do-date as their needs change, and manage the relationship with their family and involved healthcare professionals.

 

Kari is proud to be part of Sevenoaks’ leading provider of Care at Home. She describes the company as “exceptional”, and whose staff will always go above and beyond to ensure that the needs of each individual customer – and their families – are met.

 

In June 2020 Kari was deservedly appointed Deputy Manager of Bluebird Care Sevenoaks – go Kari!

Vicci Connolly

Vicci has been employed in the Care industry since 2003. She has worked in both Residential Care and Nursing Care Home settings, and has extensive experience of working with older people and those with Learning Difficulties and Physical Disabilities.

It was while working as part of a community project that Vicci realised that her passion lay in helping vulnerable and otherwise isolated people take an active and engaged part in community life, as much as it did in assisting them with their everyday care needs.

Vicci joined Bluebird Care Sevenoaks as a Care Assistant in 2012. She was quickly promoted to the positon of Senior Care Assistant and finally to the office team as Care Supervisor in the autumn of 2015.

We feel very fortunate to have Vicci with us, furthering our ability to deliver the exceptional service that our Sevenoaks customers have become accustomed to.
