​We are proud to have recently celebrated our fifth anniversary with a special event to reward our hard-working Care Assistants and valued customers.

We are proud to have recently celebrated our fifth anniversary with a special event to reward our hard-working Care Assistants and valued customers.
 
We recently hosted a Customer Afternoon Tea at St Mark's Church Hall in Tunbridge Wells where The Mayor of Tunbridge Wells, Councillor Julia Soyke, joined more than 30 customers, carers and their families at the event to mark our five year anniversary, where they were treated to afternoon tea, as well as activities including bingo and dancing.


 
Councillor Soyke, who attended the event as the guest of honour, said:
 
This is one of the early events in my time as mayor and it has been a fantastic afternoon. From learning about the type of support Bluebird Care provides, it is exactly the way I would like to be supported if I ever needed it – in my own home.
 
Claire, Care Manager at Bluebird Care Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells, said:
 
We are very happy with how the last five years have gone as we have been successful in bringing quality home care provision to vulnerable adults across the area.

We provide regular customer events as part of our service and this afternoon was a roaring success.

We were thrilled that so many of our valued customers were able to enjoy our afternoon tea event, as we wanted to celebrate this fantastic milestone with them.


Since our opening, in 2012 we have supported hundreds of people living in their own homes and in the past year, we have provided more than 100,000 hours of care to customers across the Tonbridge and Tunbridge Wells area, supporting them to live independently at home.


 
Terry, a customer who attended the event, said:
 
Home care from Bluebird Care has really changed my life, as I need help with everyday chores like cooking and cleaning, as well as dressing and washing.

I am confined to a wheelchair due to an illness I contracted as a youth player for West Ham football club. Without regular visits from care assistants I would have to move to a residential care home.
 
The support I receive is invaluable as it has helped me to feel comfortable and confident that I can continue to live independently.
