Meet the team

Tim Roberts

Director

Home Care in South Warwickshire is provided through a franchise owned and operated by Tim Roberts. Tim has many years’ experience at board level in service-orientated consumer facing businesses at the “high end” of the leisure sector. This background, together with the support and experience of the Bluebird Care franchisor, has made it possible for Tim to create a strong operating platform from which the team’s care specialists can provide structured and high quality care services to a range of customers within the South Warwickshire area.

The “Good Old-Fashioned Service” ethos of Bluebird Care matches Tim’s attitude to business and through this he has managed to create a care service that is both highly valued by its customers and widely respected professionally.

Tim decided to become a Bluebird Care franchisee after unexpectedly becoming the main carer for his disabled father who was suffering with Parkinson’s disease and vascular dementia. 

Nothing could have prepared me for the huge pressure and helplessness that this situation brought with it. Following my father’s death in 2008 I vowed to use my personal experience of care to operate the very best home care service possible in my local area. What Bluebird Care stands for is exactly the type of high quality care provision that I want to be associated with. We judge ourselves daily by whether the service we provide would be good enough for one of our own family members

Rebecca Weaver

Operations & Registered Manager

After being set on a life in Veterinary Medicine and studying hard Becky lost her father to early onset dementia, She needed to work and continued to pursue an animal orientated career as horses in particular are her passion. She worked as a freelance groom and also for a large animal welfare charity for almost ten years. With few prospects for progression she decided she needed a new direction.

Becky says: "My mother has worked in care since I was young and my sister followed her path. (They are both now Bluebirds I might add!) I had a lot of experience working for myself and providing a customer service role for those whose animals I had cared for so I felt I had some transferable skills for the role as well as a tough constitution, especially having done both a physically and mentally demanding role in animal welfare. 

I felt I would give it a try and it didn’t have to be permanent if it didn’t fit. I went on to work for a local care agency providing home care for elderly and disabled adults for 6 years, from that first week I never looked back.

I joined Bluebird Care in 2015 and soon completed QCF Level 2 and became a mentor. In 2017 I gained a promotion to Supervisor and achieved Level 5 QCF in Social Care Leadership & Management, in 2019 a promotion to Lead Supervisor, in 2021 I became Registered Manager, in 2022 I have taken on running the general Operations of the Business, it's goals, vision and direction.

There isn't many roles I haven't now had within Care and that stands me in a really good place to fully understand the people, the service and the value, efforts and challenges each member of the team has in their contribution to this excellent service.

Working for Bluebird has shown me there are opportunities for a career in care, I am a working example of that and I feel I can really make a difference. I want to share that with everyone who crosses my path! I enjoy meeting new customers and hearing about people’s lives and history and working with people so they can continue to lead full and independent lives as much as possible at home.
