When the time comes that you or a loved one are in need of additional care and support, you’ll want to ensure you select the best possible option.

When the time comes that you or a loved one are in need of additional care and support, you’ll want to ensure you select the best possible option; one that is right for you, your family and the unique situation you find yourselves in.

Bluebird Care Cambridge and Cambridge South provides high quality domiciliary care (also known as home care) and support to keep you safe, comfortable, and living independently in your own home.  

We do not believe in the one size fits all model and none of our care packages are ‘off the shelf’. We understand the individual needs of each customer and do our utmost to ensure these are met. You tell us what is important about the way you live your life so we can provide the care you want, the way you want it.

Our Care at Home can be anything from a 30-minute care visit to 24-hour live in care providing support to you or your loved one in their own home. It covers a plethora of support such as: Short care visits • Full 24-hour care • Live-in care • Companionship care • Respite care • Start and end of day help • Personal care • Night care and support • Outings or visiting family • Cleaning and tidying • Medication collection • Mealtime support • Complex care needs • Everything in between.

Our care journey starts with companionship care. It is not always about the complex care or the personal care of an individual, it can simply be about having a companion, a friend, someone to talk to. Our care team can assist with hobbies and interests, attending events and shows, concierge services and running errands or just popping round for a cup of tea and a good chat. Companionship care fits around your needs whether it’s a twice weekly visit to more regularly visits or allowing some hours for rest for a family carer.

The next stage of our Bluebird Care journey is providing light touch care such as personal care, wellbeing checks, supporting and promoting independence of our customers. Depending on your needs, we can provide more frequent visits and complex care needs.

When you need continuous care, you may not want the added stress of having to leave familiar surroundings. Bluebird Care Cambridge and Cambridge South gives you the option of high-quality care without moving to a care home. Our live-in care service offers the reassurance of 24-hour care and support in the comfort of your own home. Live-in care means keeping your familiar friends, family, and belongings around you. No upheaval. No stress. No trouble.

We also provide Respite care for those who need a break from caring for someone or who are looking for short term care. Respite care with our care team would take place in your own home and allows your usual carer, time to rest and take care of themself so they are better able to take care of their loved one.

Carolyn Dailey, Principal Director of Bluebird Care Cambridge & Cambridge South, said:
