Bluebird Care launches Health & Wellbeing Checks Service across Burton and all surrounding areas.

Bluebird Care has launched a Health & Wellbeing Checks Service for all new and existing customers.


Bluebird Care has launched a Health & Wellbeing Checks Service for all new and existing customers.

The new service aims to bridge the gap between health and social care and free up NHS resources, such as district nurses and GPs, as well as support customers to avoid hospital admissions where possible.

The Health and Wellbeing Checks comprise of a 30-minute appointment from specially trained ‘Care Champions’, who visit once a week to check their customer’s vital signs, such as blood pressure, alertness and breathing, and find out more about their overall wellbeing.

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

Rick Parekh, Director at Bluebird Care said

The service provides a positive introduction into a customer’s care journey and is of great benefit to many customers,  especially those prone to illness and high risk of hospitalisation or those returning from hospital as a step down service whilst recovering.

Bluebird Care offers flexible homecare solutions that range from check-in visits, personal care or 24-hour live-in care, all tailored to their customers individual needs. Care visits can be short term help (following an illness or because the usual carer is having a break), or long-term homecare and support. They have a dedicated team of homecare assistants that are fully trained to assist with anything ranging from help with washing, bathing, preparing breakfast or lunch, social activities support, night sitting service, respite care and a 24-hour live-in care service.
