Bluebird Care Exeter, East Devon & Exmouth launches #TalkCare 2018 campaign

Bluebird Care Exeter, East Devon & Exmouth launches #TalkCare 2018 campaign with series of short films talking to their customers.

In a bid to kick-start a county-wide conversation on care, Devon-based care provider, Bluebird Care, which has offices in Honiton, Exeter and Exmouth, launches their #TalkCare campaign today (18th June).

A series of short films will be released over the coming weeks in which Bluebird Care customers are asked to share their “nuggets of wisdom” - life experiences, personal achievements and motivational thoughts. The ambition of the films are to encourage a conversation on care and ageing amongst local families and encourage people to start planning for their future now. However, the films also illustrate how home care uniquely has the ability to create the space, time and environment to really listen to a group of people who, because of their age or health, are often socially isolated and sometimes disenfranchised form their communities.

Director William Flint said: “It is inevitable that we will all at some point need care and support, but it still remains a conversation that we’re either simply not having or leaving far too late.

“How and what care is eventually chosen is of course up to individuals – but these choices can’t be made until people better understand the often confusing and complex world of care.

“We want to start a new type of conversation about care. A care conversation that is positive, informative, open-minded, inclusive and above all, hopeful. “

The local award-winning provider of care at home services, whose team of Devon Bluebirds enable and support people to remain independent in their own homes for as long as possible hope to support the launch of the films with localized activity in the areas they deliver care. A series of fundraising events are being held by each of the local Care Hubs in Honiton (28th August 2018); Exeter (27th July 2018) and Exmouth (5th July 2018).

The first film is launched on 18th June and all films will be posted over the coming weeks across Bluebird Care Exeter, Exmouth and East Devon’s social media. Search #TalkCare.
