Early Christmas cheer for Bluebird Care customers.


With the problem of loneliness among older people hitting the headlines recently, Burnham based care-at-home provider Bluebird Care ensured its customers enjoyed plenty of festive fun at its annual Christmas Afternoon Tea Party at The Grovefield House Hotel.

Around 80 customers and their families attended the Christmas party on December 4th, with musicians ‘All That Jazz’ providing plenty of Christmas spirit and entertainment.

The sumptuous afternoon tea provided in the beautiful surroundings of the Burnham hotel, included Christmas crackers, party hats, a demonstration of the ancient art of bell ringing and festive Bingo, ensuring everyone enjoyed a Christmas to remember. 

The daughter of a customer commented ‘I want to thank you all for the Christmas Tea Party. Mum enjoyed the whole thing from beginning to end and was still talking about it in the evening when I called her….it sounds like you got it just right!’

The homecare organisation, rated ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC, even provided transport for some of its customers to ensure they didn’t miss out on the event, which for many, is one of the highlights of their year.

Bluebird Care Director Anne Inglis said, “We organise the event each year so that as many of the people that we care for as possible can get out in their local community and celebrate the spirit of Christmas with others.

“We urge people to support older people over Christmas, calling on their neighbours, friends and family who may live alone and wouldn’t normally see anyone over the festive period.

“We are extremely grateful to everyone who gave their time to make the day so special for so many of our customers.  Huge thanks also to both The Grovefield House Hotel and to Leah and Phil from ‘All That Jazz’ day - we couldn’t have done it without such great support.”
