Bluebird Care (Fareham)

What does it do?

Care visits can be from 15 minutes upwards. There is no top limit but, in reality, most of our care visits are something between 30 minutes and one hour long. Some of the services we offer are;

We can assist with ‘starting the day’. Help to get up, wash / shower / bath, get dressed and have breakfast, and getting ready for bed at the end of the day.
We provide care services through the night for those people who need them. This can either be on a ‘sleeper night’ basis, where the care worker expects a reasonable night's sleep but is on hand for emergencies, or a ‘waking night’ where the care worker is on duty throughout the night.
In addition to person care we can go shopping, either taking our customer out with us or, alternatively, we can come in, agree a shopping list, go to the shops, come back and put it all away! We can also do domestic tasks like cleaning, laundry ironing either on a regular basis or as a ‘spring clean’ (even if it is in the autumn!)
We also prompt medication, prepare food and drink and provide respite care.
If there are other services you require please feel free to ask as we may be able to assist.

What it costs:

We will put together a detailed plan for each customer which, as well as setting out the care to be delivered, also shows the weekly costs. Many people will be entitled to assistance with the cost of their care either from their local Social Services office or via other Government grants. Ask us about it and we will advise you about your rights.
