Bluebird Care Give Clients Easter Treat
12:01pm 2nd April 2013
Bluebird Care made a special delivery to their clients before Easter.
50 care workers dropped off over 200 eggs and mugs to customers in Weymouth and West Dorset.
The care at home provider also made donations to the Alzheimer's Society to give away at their memory cafes and singing for brain groups across the county.
Alzheimer's Society Social Events Co-ordinator, Sian Smail, said "We are extremely grateful to Chris and all the team at Bluebird Care for this thoughtful gift, in addition to the wonderful cakes that they already donate to some of our Memory Cafes. Those who attend our Memory Cafés and Singing for the Brain groups will no doubt be delighted to receive them. Should anyone wish to attend our groups or have any concerns regarding dementia or need support, we can be contacted on 01305 259740.
Director of Bluebird Care (Weymouth & West Dorset), Chris Scriven, said 'I came up with the idea as a result of something that happened last Easter when I took eggs in mugs to residents of a sheltered housing scheme where I was giving a talk. Some weeks later, I met by chance the daughter of one of the residents who commented on how happy the egg had made her mum. This inspired me to replicate the idea on a larger scale this year by distributing eggs to our customers and to the Alzheimer's Society in the hope that they will bring a smile to people's day. At Bluebird Care our service places an emphasis on the little additions and services that can make a positive difference. It's never 'every day's the same' with Bluebird Care and we do what we can to ensure none of our customers miss out on major cultural events or celebrations. We are also keen to bring this ethos to the wider community and are pleased to be able to make this donation to support the invaluable work of the Alzheimer's Society'
