A Christmas Message from Bluebird Care

As the end of 2014 approaches, I want to take this opportunity on behalf of the 1,500-strong team at Bluebird Care, to thank you for your support this year. BRIAN_MACGOEY_Web

We work with very many health professionals, families, individuals, businesses and other stakeholders to deliver the highest standards of quality homecare to hundreds of people every day across Ireland.

We look forward to 2015 when we will continue to support our charity partners, roll out a series of events on specialist subjects of interest to our customers, host more Food for the Soul cookery demonstrations with ‘The Restaurant’ Chef Gary O’Hanlon and of course the publication of the Bluebird Care Irish Pensioners Handbook takes place in January.

Many of our team members will be working throughout the festive season ensuring that families are together at this special time. It’s important that loved ones who choose to be at home for Christmas, have that opportunity.

We are proud to be able to help make Christmas more special for our customers. I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy 2015.

Sincerely,

Brian MacGoey
