“I had been caring for my Dad and been his main carer for over two years as I didn’t trust anyone to be able to look after my Dad as well as I could. I had experimented with care companies in the past and not had good experiences. However, when my Dad got to the end of his life, I had to let others help. This is where Bluebird Care came in, they were completely different, they actually cared. The level of care, support and professionalism, surprised me. So much so, that after my Dad’s passing I realised that this is what I wanted to do, to help other families and people like me. Bluebird Care is different. That’s why I joined the Bluebird Care Team, and I am very proud of what I do and the company I work for.”
