A new care provider has flown into south east Northumberland.
Bluebird Care (Northumberland South) was officially launched by Wansbeck MP Ian Lavery at a special event at its headquarters in Annitsford.
The company has been set up by Wah Akram with the aim of making a real difference to the lives of the people in the community.
Mr Akram, who has nearly 20 years experience at all levels of customer care, will be supported in the running of the business by office manager Susan Fender, and already has a team of staff in place.
It will be part of the Bluebird Care network, which has more than 180 offices throughout the UK.
Mr Akram said: “Care at home normally involves one or more visits a day for relatively short periods, possibly up to an hour, to help with the everyday tasks of life.
“However, the service does not stop there because longer duration visits are available as well, including overnight help or even live-in care.
“We provide care for everyone. People who have physical disabilities, short term respite and post-operative support and, of course care for the older people.
“We offer everything from personal care to shopping, domestic or social visits. In fact everything you need you need to stay in the comfort of your own home.
