Promoting Independence at Home

Independence and choice is important so that you have the freedom to be your individual self - 3 min read

What does ‘Independence’ mean at Bluebird Care Market Harborough and Oadby?

Independence means that you will maintain control in your life and remain at the centre of your own decision making.  It is important that you feel each care visit helps you with the care support you have chosen.

You will be encouraged to do as much as you are comfortable to do and supported when you need it.  

When planning your care, our skilled care assessors will talk you about your individual needs, the areas that you would like support with and any areas you would like to continue independently. For example, you may wish to have support with meal preparation, but would like to make your own cup of tea,  prepare elements of your meal or wish to have the complete meal prepared and served to you. We can tailor your support to your wishes and continue to amend your care plan as your circumstances change. 

To have a chat about all your care needs in Oadby, Wigston, Market Harborough, Kibworth, Fleckney and the surrounding villages of Harborough,  please contact

Our friendly office team are here to listen to you.
