Bluebird Care supports campaign
A care provider is celebrating its team of home care assistants, and the difference they make in their local communities every day, as part of a nationwide campaign.
The Bluebird Care Peterborough and Rutland is supporting the #MakeADifference campaign.
The campaign launched on May 8, and 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 proud to provide homecare.
Trudy Fenton, Bluebird Care Peterborough and Rutland’s longest-standing care assistant – of over five years, said: “I have been working for Bluebird Care for just over five years .
“Over this period of time I have met some amazing people from all walks of life. The satisfaction I get out of my working day is knowing that you have improved someone’s quality of life.”
With the rapidly increasing ageing population and rising numbers of people living with complex conditions - that require specialist care - for example dementia, Parkinson’s disease 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.
Bluebird Care Peterborough and Rutland will be hosting events in Stamford and Oakham at local venues as well as the company’s offices at Wharf Road, Stamford throughout May - August to promote the campaign and to encourage those who have considered a career in care, or what to make a difference by giving something back.
The events will allow people to find out more and join them to support people in the communities of Stamford and Rutland through a career in care.
The first ‘Care Recruitment Café’ event will be hosted at the Stamford Art Centre, on Tuesday, May 22 at 10am until 1pm.
The events will provide a chance to find out about the care assistant role and a career in care in a relaxed atmosphere - without committing to an interview.
