Meet the team

Anoop Sekhon

Owner

Bluebird Care Waltham Forest is led by Anoop Sekhon. Anoop started delivering homecare in Waltham Forest to help support customers in the area 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 Anoop’s absolute goal and the team 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.

Anoop holds a BSc in Business Information Technology. She has worked with the Youth Service for the London Borough of Tower Hamlets for 6 years as a HR manager.

Her background in working with young people, including those with significant care needs, has inspired her to work with people with a wide range of care needs and to open Bluebird Care (Greenwich) in March 2012. She is committed to ensuring that she provides a high quality service to the individuals she works with and that the exacting standards of Bluebird Care, UKHCA and CQC are satisfied in full.

Ramaa Kalia

Operations Manager

I joined Bluebird Care Greenwich & Docklands, Stratford and Wapping in February 2018 and now Waltham Forest in November 2020, however I have worked alongside Bluebird Care Greenwich since 2013 in various other roles. Working with Bluebird Care I have found it very rewarding compared to my corporate background from previous jobs.

In the care industry, no two days are the same. We have the best teams in our offices, with difference personalities and abilities with the core value of putting our staff and customers first. Working with Bluebird Care, isn’t working with colleagues but family.
