A homecare business celebrated its first anniversary after a year of flying success.

Bluebird Care Haringey, which provides help to elderly, disabled and vulnerable people in their homes, held a party to mark their milestone.

Having made more than 4,000 care visits in the last year, they invited former Mayor of Haringey, Sheila Peacock, and register care manager Karen Rides to celebrate their achievements.

Mayor Peacock said: "It is just brilliant how their business has tripled within the short space of a year."

Since its development, Bluebird Care, of Millmead Road, Tottenham, has helped those who cannot help themselves by giving companionship, assistance with showering, and help with the gardening, all from the clients' own homes.

Managing Director, Jyoti Kohli, launched the care-at-home business with the hope of creating a better standard of care in Haringey.

Mrs Kohli, runner up in the Frontline Leaders Award category at the Great British Care Awards, said: “We have achieved a great deal in our first 12 months and in the main, that is down to the fantastic staff that we employ and the excellent service that they have been providing to our customers."

"At every level of our business from management to our carers – we have totally dedicated staff who consistently go the extra mile and really make a difference to the lives of our customers.”

In its first year, Bluebird Care donated more than 50 Christmas presents to North Middlesex Hospital Children's Ward, given cupcakes for MacMillan coffee mornings, become an accredited care provider for Haringey Borough Council and become a fully-accredited healthcare training provider.

It has also created 35 new job positions.

Bluebird Care Haringey business has also been nominated for a Spiritof Bluebird Care Award later this year and two further Great British Care Awards next month.
