Staff at Bluebird Care Herefordshire are proud to support the Dementia Friends initiative. By wearing their badge on their uniform they are showing they support the belief that people can live well with dementia.

Our Care Manager, Annette Castro-Griffiths, is currently rolling out Dementia Awareness training to all our staff which we hope will lead to a Foundation Certificate in Dementia Awareness. We believe this training will help us to feel better equipped to care for people with dementia care and help us to support our customers who have dementia with greater understanding and sensitivity.
