Bluebird Care South Somerset Roll Out Essential Safety Kit and Community Shopping Initiative During the Coronavirus Outbreak

Bluebird Care South Somerset is rolling out a new ‘safety kit’, designed to maximise protection and minimise risk of infection for both their staff and customers. The home care provider will continue to deliver vital care to their customers, while adhering to their infection control measures.

In addition, all Bluebird Care South Somerset Care Assistants are being issued with thermometers. They will be required to record and report their temperatures to the Senior Management Team on a daily basis.

In order to help many vulnerable or older people in the Somerset and Dorset communities they have also teamed up with supermarket chain Iceland. They will now offer an essential shopping service with home delivery available anyone that needs it, not just for regular Bluebird Care customers.

Bluebird Care South Somerset are closely following and monitoring both NHS and government guidelines to offer the highest possible level of protection to their staff and customers. They will be holding regular reviews of all protective measures and will modify them as advised.

Ross Perkins, Director of Bluebird Care South Somerset, said:

 “The health and well-being of our staff and customers is our top priority. We are working hard to ensure everybody remains safe and assured that they will continue to receive the care that they require. Thank you to all the Bluebird Care South Somerset staff, you are all so inspiring and I know you are providing customers with some much needed comfort and reassurance during this uncertain time.”
