Meet the team

Get to know our wonderful management team here at Bluebird Care South Somerset.

Bluebird Care - South Somerset is led by Ross Perkins. Ross started delivering homecare in South Somerset to help support customers in the region and to enable people to receive homecare and support while remaining in the comfort and familiarity of their own homes.

Delivering the highest quality of homecare and support is the whole team's absolute goal and we would be delighted to hear from anyone who is seeking homecare for themselves or for a loved one, or would simply like to talk to someone about the services we provide.

Further back, Ross served as a Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Navy, sailing the seven seas and enjoying shore postings in luxurious spots around the world such as Iraq, Sierra Leone and the Falkland Islands.
