At Bluebird Care Herefordshire we support our team in their career development and believe we can provide a career journey for everyone. Whether this is remaining with their customers delivering care in the home, or moving into an office role where they can use their passion for care to help develop the business. Whatever they choose, there is an opportunity to develop their career.
 
Over the last year experts at Bluebird Care have developed and launched a new application called the Staff Guide App. This supports care assistants out in the field, giving them instant access to the information they need in their role. 

On top of this, Bluebird Care Herefordshire have implemented the PASSsystem which allows care teams instant access to customer care plans, keeping office staff informed of any developments. Due to be launched soon in Herefordshire is OpenPASS, an app providing verified customers & family members access to real-time care plans recorded in the PASSsystem.
 
These innovative developments are essential as they support care teams in their training, as well as enhancing their skills to continue delivering excellence in care. 

Hazel Godsall, director of Bluebird Care Herefordshire, commented:
 
There has been a real shift in the care sector over the last few years, with people living longer and more individuals choosing to remain in their own home. It is important we are well equipped to continue delivering the high-quality care that is expected and that our customers deserve.
 
I believe in offering every member of my team the best training opportunities, supporting them in delivering excellence in care across the whole of Herefordshire. By developing our care team, we can look at what further support we can offer our customers and support them in living the life they choose.
