An alternative to care homes

What is live in care?

At Bluebird Care Mendip we can provide live in care, a great alternative to moving to a care home. You can remain in your own home with familiar surroundings, whilst receiving round the clock care. We provide our live in care service in Mendip, Frome, Shepton Mallet, Wells, Street, Glastonbury and surrounding areas.

How can we help you?

At Bluebird Care Mendip our live in care service is tailored to each individual based on your own needs and requirements, allowing you to remain in your own home with your loved ones.

happy customerAll of our live in care assistants are employed and trained directly by Bluebird Care Mendip, where we offer regular supervision and professional development to everyone in our care team. Each care assistant is trained and carefully matched to your individual requirements.

Our care assistants will respect you and your home, as well as your own space and privacy but will be immediately on hand to give professional care with the time and attention you would like, which cannot always be provided in a busy care home.
