Wish there was more continuity with carers. Carers are very good at their job, very considerate of my husband's needs and keep him motivated.

We were very impressed by the professionalism of Bluebird Care from the initial assessment all the way through our experience. The carers were well managed and showed great compassion and skill in looking after my mother at home. Without their help, it would not have been possible for her to stay at home during her last illness. The carers helped us cope at a very sad and stressful time and allowed my mother to be comfortable and dignified to the end.

Eve, Admin Assistant at Bluebird Care (Totton) responded to this review on 17 Oct 2017:

Thank you very much for your kind words.

The care team who looked after my dad were not only very competent in their job but they took the time to talk to dad and bring some laughter into the time they spent with him. They were courteous and compassionate and by carrying out their care so well it allowed us as a family to spend quality time with dad. From the management to the care team we had support as a family and the communication was excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend bluebird care team to anyone.

When I came out of the hospital after having a fall, I found I was not very steady with walking. I needed a walker and was advised to get help. To help me to walk and anything else, I now have carers which I am glad to see. I do not fall and they even make me a cup of tea. I find that these care visits at home are very good and give you the confidence to carry on.
