The Benefits of Personal Care

We understand that personal care can be sensitive to each individual.

As with everything else we offer, our personal care services are tailored to you and your wishes.
Bluebird Care provide professional companion care, helping older people across the UK to continue to live a fulfilling life, in their own home.
What is Companionship Care?
Many people we support simply want company and conversation, whether they live alone and cannot see their family and friends as often as they would like, or if they are recently bereaved and are finding it hard to adjust. Loneliness can have serious effects on a person’s health and Bluebird Care aims to prevent loneliness through companionship care.
From giving you a hand with the weekly shop, accompanying you to your doctor’s appointment or to your favourite social group or event, companionship is simply being there for you or your loved one. If you need someone to make sure you’re eating healthily or just fancy popping out for lunch? No problem, our care team will be there for you.
We believe that age in’t a barrier to adventure. We’ve also had a huge amount of success in helping people start something new. Many of our clients have taken up new hobbies such as learning to dance, play instruments, knit and cook specialist dishes. If there’s something new you’d like to start, or an old passion you’d like to revisit, we can match you to the right person to help you achieve this.
What is live-in care?
With Bluebird Care live-in care, a carer is chosen to be a companion to your loved one to live in their home and support with daily activities. It’s all down to you and your loved one to decide how many hours of care you require each day. A live-in carer is available not only as a companion, but as a source of comfort and care, day and night. You can be confident that help is at hand for your loved one, in the event that any unforeseen circumstances occur.
For people who need round-the-clock care and want to remain in their own home, we can usually arrange a team of carers to ensure that your relative is receiving attentive care 24 hours a day.
Why choose live-in care?
A carer will be matched to your loved one, based on their shared interests and personalities. We only employ kind, caring people with a huge heart and this means a strong bond of trust is formed. The client’s needs always come first.
There are common situations, conditions and events where live-in care offers the solution to challenges you might face moving forward, which may require you or a loved one to need some extra support:
Long-term conditions: Diseases like Parkinson’s require close and careful monitoring. Our carers are trained to observe any changes to a client’s health, well-being and behaviour, ready to take action if there is ever a cause for concern.
Dementia care: Living at home means staying in familiar surroundings and maintaining those daily routines that might not be possible in residential care. Home care suits somebody living with a dementia, where continuity of life in the home they have grown to love is proven to be beneficial.
Losing a spouse: When a spouse dies, it takes some time to adjust, not just emotionally but practically too. A carer can be a much needed companion and fulfil the support role that was recently lost.
Frailty: Getting older for many means not being able to do the simplest of things, even lifting the kettle to make a cup of tea. Live-in care can support someone who is becoming frail to maintain their independence and quality of life.
Unexpected illness and events: Whether it’s a fall or a sudden illness, your loved one could be susceptible to events that may quickly have a need for care. Professional help will relieve the pressure from you and your family.
What do live-in carers do?
They will be your companion and reside in your home, helping you to carry out those tasks you need them to. More importantly they will become a familiar face and a source of company whether it’s cooking a memorable meal, watching a favourite TV programme or reminiscing about the ‘good old days’.
