Five things to consider
When it comes to choosing a Live-in and Home Care provider, it is important to consider these five things in your decision making process:
1. CQC rating & report
The Care Quality Commission (CQC) is the independent regulator of health and social care in England. They monitor, inspect and regulate all care services to make sure they meet fundamental standards of quality and safety.
Don’t just look at the CQC rating but also read the report.
Our Colchester & Tendring branch scored overall "Good" with "Outstanding" for Well-Led

2. Consistency and continuity
Continuity is so important. Customers need to see the same friendly faces day in, day out.
At Bluebird Care, we keep our Customers comfortable and relaxed in their own surroundings with Care Assistants they know and trust.
3. We are a local family company
Unlike many care providers who are large national companies operating out of far-away head offices, we are local to you. Being close by means it’s easy to keep in regular face to face contact with you and your carer assistants and we are never far away if extra support is needed.
Local people, delivering care and support in the area they live in.
4. Highly trained staff
Only the best Care Assistants pass our selection process and unlike many agencies, we employ all our own staff and train them to standards exceeding other care companies in the area. We recognise, reward and look after our team properly.
We have specialised in house training sessions which run weekly to ensure all of our staff are up to the standards we expect.
5. Home and Live-in Care experts
Bluebird Care provide bespoke Home and Live-in Care tailored to you and your precise needs.
Our care services range from 30-minute visits right up to 24-hour care and full overnight support. This means our Live-in Care Customers can make use of our Home Care team when their Live-in Care Assistant needs breaks or double up support.
