Inspectors give outstanding rating to care agency

The Stroud office of Bluebird Care has been given a rating of "Overall Outstanding" by the Care Quality Commission.

Bluebird Care (Stroud and Cirencester) is based in Nelson Street, Stroud and provides personal care to people living in the Stroud area, Cirencester and Cam and Dursley.

CQC inspectors rated the service outstanding for being caring and responsive to people's needs and good for being safe, effective and well led. The overall rating was outstanding.

Deborah Ivanova, deputy chief inspector of Adult Social Care, said: "At its last inspection in March 2015 we rated Bluebird Care (Stroud and Cirencester), good. It is clear at this inspection the service had worked hard to improve on the feedback from our previous inspection and have now gained an outstanding rating.

"People were supported and encouraged to maintain their independence so they were able to regain the ability to take part in previous roles, hobbies and interests. The service is continuously reviewed and were responsive to people's changing needs.

"I would like to congratulate all the staff for the work that they do in providing an outstanding service to the people in their care"

Gareth Powick, Bluebird Care director on-site in Stroud, said: ""I feel immensely privileged to be a part of a team so dedicated to caring for the people of our community.

"While adapting to the many challenges of delivering home care in a rural community, we have managed to remain true to our ideals and think that this is what enabled us to achieve this rare recognition."
