Bluebird Care Carlow, Kilkenny & Waterford Palliative Care and MS Training and Information Day

Care staff from the local Carlow, Kilkenny and Waterford Bluebird Care office recently took part in a very interesting training and awareness day on Palliative Care and Multiple Sclerosis.

The Palliative Care training was given by Bernie Brophy from the local Carlow/Kilkenny HomeCare Team. Carers found the presentation very beneficial with everyone keen to learn more about this important area. The afternoon session was hosted by the MS Society with a detailed and interesting presentation on MS and some guidance on how to Care for people with MS.

Brian Egan Managing Director of the local Bluebird Care office said that there was great feedback from everyone about the training. This forms part of the varied Bluebird Care Carlow, Kilkenny and Waterford training programme. Aside from the mandatory Induction & Orientation workshop and Manual Handling and Patient Moving Training the local office has held training workshops in the following areas over the last year : Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care, Disability Awareness, Parkinson’s, Motor Neurones and now Palliative Care and Multiple Sclerosis.

The training was done by Disability Consultancy Services and all the topics covered should hopefully be of benefit to the carers in their work’
Brian added ‘ we are now already planning our next training which will cover important areas such as Palliative Care, further training on Elder Abuse and an overview on record keeping and Documentation’
We are providing care for people of all ages and with a range of different needs throughout Carlow, Kilkenny and Waterford so having experienced and trained care staff is so important’.
