Bluebird Care Teams up with High Street Pharmacist Boots
Bluebird Care and Boots have teamed up to offer customers who require prescription drugs at home a seamless service of help and care. A franchise that provides home care, Bluebird Care’s 43-strong team of care managers are working with pharmacists, using tried-and-tested Boots’ initiatives, to help people safely use their medication at home.
Customers and carers are being encouraged to use specially designed blister packs and pill dispensers, to ensure they are taking their medicines correctly. Extra devices are also available to help the partially sighted and visually impaired, including a credit card-style design with pre-recorded information. Additionally, Bluebird Care’s promotional literature is on display at pharmacies, providing clearly written information for customers seeking to receive care at home, either for them or a relative.
“We are delighted to be working with Bluebird Care,” says Chris Glass, Domiciliary Care Manager for Boots. “We see them as a major provider of quality care and our working together will offer our customers both information and practical help.”
Bluebird Care Managing Director Paul Tarsey adds: “It is often confusing and difficult for people to get the help they need and the support in place to enable them to stay at home. We are working alongside Boots to help people through that maze, whether that is organising care at home or help with their medication.”
