Health and Wellbeing Checks with Bluebird Care

Published: 18/06/2019

A new and unique service monitoring vital signs in the community.

Bluebird Care has launched a new Health and Wellbeing Check service which aims to bridge the gap between health and social care. The new service can help to free up NHS resources such as district nurses and GPs, as well as support customers to avoid hospital admissions where possible. 

For customers not quite in need of a full care service, our Health and Wellbeing Checks are the perfect way to begin, with a short 30-minute visit once a week to check your vital signs. We have specially trained Care Champions that can visit your home on a weekly basis to check your vitals and have a chat to find out more about you and your wellbeing. 

As part of the service the Care Champion will check the following vital signs:

  • Blood pressure and pulse
  • Temperature
  • Breathing and oxygen saturation
  • Alertness
  • General wellbeing which is assessed via a questionnaire

The scores are generated and put into a NEWS2 matrix where, if results show a decline, they are automatically shared with a healthcare professional such as a GP who can then take the appropriate course of action to support the customer. 

For nearly 15 years, Bluebird Care have been experts in delivering high quality, personalised care solutions within the home to people across the UK. Our values are centred on delivering excellence during times that most families find difficult and stressful. Our Health and Wellbeing Check service helps to support customers in their own homes by monitoring any changes that could lead to deterioration, or a visit to the hospital, meaning people can stay in the homes they love.

If you’d like to know more about our Health and Wellbeing Check services for yourself or a loved one, please do get in touch with your local office to find out more about how we can help. We’re available for a confidential and considerate chat whenever you are.
