Bluebird Care Mid Essex live-in carer Christmas party 2021

Published: 13/12/2021

Bluebird Care Mid Essex, started the Christmas festivities by organising their first Christmas staff parties for our live-in carers

The Bluebird Care Mid Essex party was held on 1st December, inviting our regional live-in carers to our Chelmsford office. Bluebird Care adhered and followed the covid regulations, by asking all to complete a negative covid test before attending.

When we asked our live-in carers, what is the reason they enjoy being a live-in carer compared to being a home carer, they all said, it’s being able to build a closer bond with the customer, it is a two-way street, as much as they enjoy the one on one, the customer gets to build a bond with them too.

Wiping bums and making tea is not what it is all about, it's dealing with a customer’s everyday living, supporting them to stay in their own home, supporting their emotions, making their quality of life better and allowing them to live independently. Companionship is the most important element, sitting and talking with them, ensuring they are not lonely. It is not just about their physical needs, but also their emotional needs too.
