Meet the team

Bluebird Care - West Dorset is led by Ross Perkins. Ross started delivering homecare in West Dorset 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.

Prior to joining the Bluebird Care family, Ross was UK Director for a global manufacturing agency, responsible for the successful delivery of complex engineering projects. 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.

In his spare time, Ross can be found watching rugby or trying to play the ukulele.

Aleasha Ellis

Weymouth Community Care Lead

I have been working in care for nearly 9 years. I have worked in a range of care home and hospital settings. This is my first job out in the community, and I have loved being able to help customers stay in their own homes. 

I have recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in healthcare (non-honours) and before that completed a certificate in health and social care.

I love going to festivals, watching live music, and choosing my next tattoo.
