BLUEBIRD CARE VALE OF GLAMORGAN HOMECARE PROVIDER CREATES NEW JOBS TO TACKLE LONELINESS EPIDEMIC
1.3 million individuals across the UK continue to live with loneliness according to a recent poll carried out by leading home care provider Bluebird Care, who are launching their recruitment campaign to help tackle this shocking statistic. The survey, conducted by, One Poll, shows that 20% of Wales people are spending more than a week alone.Commenting, Huw Owen, Director of Bluebird Care Vale of Glamorgan said:
“It’s shocking to read the results of the survey and we want to make sure that we can provide support to people who are lonely and need our services. The winter months can be hard for everyone in the community so we want to provide rewarding jobs for people and ensure that we can meet the needs of our customers.”
“Many individuals in The Vale are vulnerable and lonely, all requiring help at home especially through the winter months. As a care provider it is often our care assistants who offer companionship and a friendly face to our customers, who may spend a lot of time on their own. At Bluebird Care The Vale we recognise the number of people wanting help at home and so we need to recruit more care assistants”.
