A good start witnessed for Bluebird Care’s homecare support scheme

Home care provider and franchise, Bluebird Care has taken one step forward to include another great service in addition to the many others that it already offers. The franchise company has linked up with Boots, a high street pharmacist, in order to help people who will require prescription drugs in their homes.

Bluebird Care has its Kirklees area office on New Hey Road in Salendine Nook and will combine its services with Boots so that it can provide services to those customers who are opting for support and care in their very own homes. The franchise has a strong team of 43 care managers across Ireland and the UK and will now join the national network of Boots so that it can provide practical aid to customers that need prescription drugs at home.

Carers and customers from Bluebird Care are persuaded to use pill dispensers and special blister packs so that they take their medication properly. The home care franchise also offers special devices that are of great help for partially sighted people. The company said that its new initiative kept in line with the Government’s policy for helping people remain in their own homes for as long as it is suitable, instead of having to go into residential care.

The company’s managing director, Paul Tarsey said that it is usually difficult and confusing for people to obtain the support and help they require in order for them to stay at home. The home care franchise company has started to expand its services and is opening new offices and creating numerous job opportunities from 2008-2009.

Boots recently launched a £65m re-brand for its pharmacies which included Midnight Pharmacies, one of the biggest changes for the company in an attempt to respond to customer demands.
