Luis only joined in October last year, but thanks to his naturally caring and compassionate nature he has quickly become an invaluable member of our team and very popular with all his customers and their families.
Originally a Business Manager from Spain, he had volunteered many times in his holidays, teaching maths to mentally and physically disabled people and working with the homeless in Paris. He later worked with impoverished older people in France, accompanying them on much-needed holidays, before applying for a job with Bluebird Care.
I’m so happy in my work and I now realise that I wasn’t very satisfied before. This is my first caring job, although I have worked as a volunteer, so I knew that I enjoyed helping older people. I am very lucky to have some great colleagues and customers and I also feel very at home in England.”
He is a naturally warm, kind and caring person, exactly the sort of care professional we want at Bluebird Care. Very quickly, due to his maturity and compassion, Luis was receiving warm and generous compliments from his customers and their loved ones, and he is delighted to be having a positive impact on the quality of life for those he cares for. Luis also has a great sense of responsibility and dedication to his work with us, and is extremely popular with all his customers and colleagues.”
