We've become the only home care provider in Essex to have the Gold Standards Framework Accreditation!

Bluebird Care Colchester and Tendring is one of the first in the UK to receive the accreditation.

Marking a milestone in palliative care, Bluebird Care Colchester and Tendring has been awarded the Gold Standard Framework's accreditation for their exceptional end-of-life care. This makes them the sole provider in North East Essex to be honored with this accolade. Notably, only three home care providers across the UK have earned this recognition previously.

The Gold Standard Framework, an esteemed charity with over 25 years of legacy, represents the pinnacle of care standards for individuals in their twilight years. Bluebird Care's dedication to this cause has been evident over a two-year rigorous assessment, showcasing their commitment to quality and compassion and their dedication to excellence.

This monumental accomplishment was commemorated at an awards gala in Manchester on September 29th, where the team stood alongside fellow care professionals committed to excellence.

Melvyn Plum, Director of Bluebird Care Colchester and Tendring said:

“We are so honoured to be able to support people and their families with truly compassionate care when they most need it, and I am so grateful to the whole team at Bluebird Care Colchester and Tendring for their commitment and excellence. Having this dedication recognised means the world.
Our team has invested almost a year of unwavering effort in gaining comprehensive knowledge and practical experience in the field of palliative care. We have extended our support to customers and their families across the community, while applying the GSF practical and evidence-based end-of-life care improvement programme.”
