BLUEBIRD CARE SOUTH SOMERSET AND WEST DORSET ENHANCE STAFF BENEFITS

BLUEBIRD CARE SOUTH SOMERSET AND WEST DORSET ENHANCE STAFF BENEFITS

Bluebird Care South Somerset and West Dorset have launched new contracts for current and new Care Assistants with enhanced benefits.  

The new contracts recently introduced by the local home care provider present a number of fantastic perks and benefits. Offered alongside their standard contracts, this innovative type of contract operates on a three-week cycle with one weekend on and two weekends off.  

Different to the alternating weekend contracts frequently found in many social care roles, Bluebird Care South Somerset and West Dorset are hoping these well thought out ‘enhancements’ will give their Care Assistant’s an improved work-life balance. Alongside these new contracts team members will also be able to pick the days and hours they want to work.  

Bluebird Care South Somerset and West Dorset provide care to customers in their own homes and specialises in working with customers who live with dementia, physical disabilities, and many other acute and chronic conditions. Working alongside their customers’ families, social services, and the NHS, they ensure each customer receives the care they need, from 30-minute daily visits, to 24/7 live -in Care. 

The home care provider also offers a competitive salary to all Care Assistant’s and pays their team for travel time to and from customer visits.   

Speaking on what the new ‘Enhanced Contracts’ mean to her, Care Assistant Angela said: “The main reason I changed on to the enhanced contract was so I could know what I am doing from day to day on a three-week rota. Knowing what I am doing helps me hugely with appointments I need to book, where before I would have to request to be unavailable. The hours are good and there is flexibility to pick up extra hours.”  

“The enhanced contract allows me to spend more time with my husband, which helps with family life. The biggest benefit is working one weekend in three. Knowing where I stand is a big benefit for me.”
