An East Suffolk family-run care service has expanded and opened a new office in Gorleston-on-Sea in the borough of Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, creating 30 new jobs.

Bluebird Care East Suffolk, Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft is led by Kerry Hobbs, who was inspired to start the service after supporting her own grandparents.

Also helping to lead the local care team is registered manager Deena Malvin, who has years of experience, including specialist dementia care.

The Bluebird care team will bring a range of different care services to the Gorleston-on-Sea community, including domiciliary and companionship care, live-in and respite care, and night care.

"I’m delighted that we are now able to offer home care services across the Gorleston area," said Kerry.
"I know from experience how difficult it can be navigating the different care options available, and so I’m pleased to be able to make this journey easier for people in the local community.

"The wider Great Yarmouth area means so much to me and my family is all still based here too – so when the opportunity came to bring our services to Gorleston-on-Sea I didn't think twice.

"The team and I are already getting stuck in to making sure people can maintain their independence within the comfort of their own home, rather than moving to a residential care home if this isn’t the right time for them."
