Bluebird Care has today (Tuesday 8th
May) launched a national campaign to celebrate their care assistants across all offices, and the difference they make in their local communities every day.
The #MakeADifference campaign, spearheaded by Bluebird Care, a national provider of home care in the UK, aims to highlight and raise awareness of domiciliary care as a profession, which enables vulnerable people to receive the care and support they require in the comfort of their own homes. The campaign will also showcase why Bluebird Care care assistants are #ProudtoCareAtHome.
With the rapidly increasing ageing population and rising numbers of people living with complex conditions - that require specialist care - for example Dementia, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s disease, and more people choosing to opt for care at home, this campaign aims to highlight how patient, kind and compassionate individuals can make a real difference working in domiciliary care.
Many of the local Bluebird Care offices will be hosting events throughout May - August to promote the campaign – ranging from open days, attending recruitment events and lots more.
June Moore, Bluebird Care’s longest-standing care assistant – of over 10 years - who also works at Bluebird Care in Petersfield, said:
Bluebird Care offer me a career that works. The role has been very flexible in giving me a work life balance. This is key when raising a family.
Duncan Berry, Bluebird Care’s Chief Operating Officer, said:
I know I am making a difference in my local community, and helping individuals remain in their own home. Moving can be unsettling, so anything we can do to prevent this should be done. I love spending time with my customers, hearing the stories, seeing the photos. I love being a care assistant.
Some people already have the skills to work in home care; patience, caring, and having a laugh. I have a giggle with my customers every day. I know I will never find another job where I am making a real difference.
I am delighted that we are launching this fantastic campaign which aims to highlight the vital work that our care assistants across the country are providing day in, day out.
Via the #MakeADifference campaign, we want all individuals to learn more about how rewarding a career in home care can be, the huge difference you can make to the people that you support, and why so many of our Bluebird Care care assistants are #ProudToCareAtHome.
We would like to thank all our wonderful carers, and to encourage anyone who thinks they have the right qualities, to get in touch and consider a career with us.
