Why do we Care? Hear from our care team at Bluebird Care Rushmoor & Surrey Heath

Published: 20/07/2021

This year, we reached out to our care team and to ask them ‘why do we care’? This question, central to our mission at all times, and has been even more pertinent throughout the pandemic.

One year ago, while the pandemic was still raging and vaccines were not around yet, we thought to reach out to the community to ask ‘what care means to you’? We were overwhelmed with the response and compiled a very moving and beautiful collection of poems. This time around, we felt that we wanted to reach out to our care team and to ask them ‘why do we care’? This question, central to our mission at all times, has been even more pertinent throughout the pandemic.

Our care team at Bluebird Care Rushmoor & Surrey Heath have been extraordinary during the past 18 months, going above and beyond their regular caring duties to ensure our customers remained safe and supported during the pandemic.

Our care team have been on the frontline supporting customers with a range of conditions, impairments, and disabilities so we asked them to remind us why they enjoy their role and what makes their role such a special one within our community.

Even though each hand is unique, when we put them together a beautiful and strong bond is formed in which we find care, friendship, hope and compassion. These are our values.
