Providing care at home not only to older people but also to people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities and to children and their families.
Bluebird Care provides high quality care at home. They specialise in working with customers and their families that require social care in their own homes. They offer a unique service of tailored care visits from 30 minutes to full live-in support.
Their commitment to quality and ‘good old fashioned service’ has played an important part in their success. They have over 200 offices in the UK and Republic of Ireland and these provide over millions of care visits at home every year.
They arrange care for customers who may need help and support, such as:
Older people who need some help with getting up in the morning, or going to bed.
Couples who would like some assistance for their partner such as keeping on top of household chores.
People who are physically disabled and who need assistance with the things that their disability prevents them from doing entirely by themselves.
People who have fairly constant care needs but do not wish to go into residential care frequently choose the Live-in Care Service.
Those discharged from hospital after illness or an operation.
Children and their families either on an on-going basis or simply for respite care from time to time.
There is a demographic trend towards an ageing population and the social trend towards older people wishing to remain in their own home. As more and more people are encouraged to be cared for in their own homes instead of moving into residential care, the demand can only increase.
The business started in 2004 from a Hampshire base. They now have over 200 franchise offices across the UK and Ireland. Some of their Franchise Owners are now operating more than one Bluebird Care franchise.

BRITISH FRANCHISE ASSOCIATION
In 1977, the major franchise companies in the UK decided to set up their own association. The British Franchise Association (bfa), was formed to act in the interests of the industry as a whole in assessing and accrediting franchising companies as those which meet its criteria for the structure of the franchise business, the terms of the contract between franchisor and franchisee, the testing of the system and its success as a franchise.
On this site, we only feature franchisors who are either:
Full Members of the bfa
Full Members are established franchised businesses with a proven trading and franchising record. They are prepared to have their reputation examined by the bfa, and have an established network of franchisees.
Associate Members of the bfa
Associate Members have proven their ability to launch and support at least one franchised outlet for 12 months and are now in the business of building their network. There will be few franchisees whose experience you can research and a short period of time over which the business has been tested.
