You may have noticed we have been asking some very different questions when we have been reviewing your care package recently. There is a very good reason for this – that people’s physical health is strongly linked to emotional health and well-being. A number of studies have shown that when people have a good social life and are able to anticipate events and activities which they will enjoy, that their physical health is maintained or even improved. Inversely, when people are subject to stress and isolation, their physical health can decline much more quickly than normal.
As a health care provider, it is our job to understand all of these factors. We are here to help you eliminate unnecessary stress and worry, and to support you to have more things in your life to enjoy.
If there is some problem which is bearing on you and you would like to resolve, or something which you really miss doing or would like to try for the first time, you can talk to any of your carers or the office team. We are able to find equipment and services which can make you able to act independently, we can help coordinate your family and friends, and we can help you access resources which are already paid for by your taxes.
So, if you’re feeling a little down (and there’s a lot of it about at the moment!) you can speak to anyone who works for Bluebird Care, and we’ll be delighted to work with you to create something to look forward to in 2021.
