Sheree Jenman, Owner of Bluebird Care explains how their home care service can provide people with the support they need to maintain independence and remain living in the comfort of their own home.

'There is no place like home’ which is why Bluebird Care is dedicated to helping people stay in theirs for as long as possible.

Q: Why should I consider home care for my loved one?

A: We know ‘there’s no place like home,’ which is why we’re dedicated to helping people stay in theirs for as long as possible.

Moving to a care home in later life can sometimes feel like the only option but this can be traumatic and disorientating. With our home care service, you can relax knowing your loved one is being looked after in familiar and safe surroundings by professional, qualified carers.

Carers can help customers keep in touch with family and friends by using applications such as Facetime and Zoom. Picture: Bluebird CareCarers can help customers keep in touch with family and friends by using applications such as Facetime and Zoom. Picture: Bluebird Care

Q: What support can you provide?

A: We can visit as often as needed – whether it’s a 30-minute visit once a week, running errands or round the clock live-in care.

We can support with medication, do the weekly shop, help them with household chores and provide personal care. We also offer specialist support for those living with a range of conditions including dementia.

Q: How can you tailor the care to suit my loved one’s lifestyle?

A: It’s important that your loved one stays in control of their own life. We offer a truly personalised service where customers can decide when and how long we visit for and the type of support required.

We regularly review our customers’ care package to ensure they receive the right amount of care as their needs change.

Q: My elderly relative lives alone and I’m worried that they are lonely, how can you help?

A: Loneliness can harm mental and physical wellbeing, we can help by providing companionship and support so people can enjoy activities in or outside of their home.

We also support individuals to safely use technology to keep in touch with family and friends by using applications such as Facetime and Zoom.

Q: What should you do if you feel your loved one needs support to stay safe and well at home?

A: Taking the first step can be difficult and it’s important to approach the subject sensitively and with empathy.

Try to focus on the positives of receiving home care, for example, they can receive support on their terms and can remain in the comfort of their home. We offer a no-obligation visit to discuss how our services can enhance people’s lives rather than take over them.
