BLUEBIRD Care, a provider of home care, has opened a new office on Salt Lane, which will create 50 new jobs.

The company will provide personalised care for people in their own homes with services ranging from 30 minute visits up to comprehensive live-in care.

It is owned by husband and wife team Hamish and Anna Morton, who have a wealth of healthcare experience.

Mrs Morton has a background in primary care management with local knowledge of the health and care industry.

She said: “We prioritise the wellbeing and safety of our customers and ensure that all our care staff are subject to a rigorous vetting procedure before they start work. Our staff are the lifeblood of our business, so we give our care workers the training and support they need to deliver the best possible quality of care to our customers.

“Bluebird Care recently won the Skillsoft Inspire Award 2014 for our e-learning scheme that helps ensure our care staff are trained above and beyond the industry standards.”

Mr Morton said: “Providing the best support and training to our staff is at the heart of everything we do at Bluebird Care, and we’re thrilled to have been recognised for this with a Skillsoft Inspire Award.

“Our staff deliver the highest possible standards of care and service for our customers, and we’re proud of the results they achieve.

“Training for our staff goes on throughout their careers, so they’re always up to date with the best possible practices. “Our award-winning, flexible approach, including e-learning, plays a key part in delivering the best service to our customers.”
