Bluebird Care Gets on the Road with Vantastic

35 accessible vans delivering 12,000 trips per month across Dublin

Homecare company Bluebird Care has partnered with accessible transport company Vantastic to ensure they can continue to deliver 12,000 monthly trips across Dublin city and county.

The charity offers a low-cost affordable service to people of all ages and with varying degrees of ability. They employ 50 staff to provide seven day-a-week accessible transport services.

Cormac Moloney, the charity’s CEO says corporate social responsibility is a vital part of their revenue streams.

“As a charity we rely heavily on support from companies such as Bluebird Care to keep us on the road. This current partnership over 12 months will help us deliver on our massive commitment to bring circa 1,000 people a week from their homes to community centres, to their place of work, hospital appointments and even on shopping trips.

“Accessible transport is the link which affords independence, well-being, good mental health and in many cases interaction with other people.

Brian MacGoey is Managing Director of Bluebird Care Ireland. He says that their work as private home care providers ties in perfectly with the work of Vantastic.

“We deliver 10,000 home care visits per week to people who live in Dublin and its surrounding areas. While we ensure that people can remain in their own homes, the vital link for full independence is transport.

“So often we take for granted the chance to go out, meet friends, go shopping or even visit our GP. This is why we are so delighted to partner with Vantastic and support their invaluable work.”

Bluebird Care spent a day with Vantastic recently and met their customers and their staff.

Bluebird Care Welcome’s HIQA’s Comments on Home Care Regulation

Bluebird Care, an independent health and social care service provider, welcomes the comments made by the CEO of the Health Information and Equality Authority (HIQA), Phelim Quinn, in relation to the statutory regulation of all domicillary care services and community based services, during a recent meeting with the Oireachtas Future of Healthcare Committee.

Mr. Quinn informed the Committee that, “HIQA supports the extension of home care packages, but is concerned about the vulnerabilities of people in receipt of personal care and support services within their homes”

“Therefore, we must extend statutory regulation to cover all domiciliary care services, and other community-based social services, in order to ensure that vulnerable people are safe and receiving the best-possible support.”

The Managing Director of Bluebird Care Ireland, Brian MacGoey, strongly supports the views shared by Mr Quinn.

“We want to see regulation and have publicly called for it for many years. We believe the development and introduction of National Standards within this sector and their subsequent implementation and monitoring is key to the provision and delivery of safe quality care to all service users/customers who access such services.”

Bluebird Care has 26 offices throughout Ireland providing health and social care services within the home setting and local community. Quality and safety is at the core of all its work.

Service provision is nurse-led and all care staff are trained to place the customer at the heart and centre of every interaction and to provide care with kindness, compassion, consideration and respect.

All Bluebird Care offices are independently owned and managed.
