As you may be aware, Jo and Paul Hamilton are the proud owners of the Blossom Home Care franchise territory, covering Teesdale and Weardale, from their office on the Harmire Enterprise Park in Barnard Castle.
Within the first couple of months of starting to deliver care the business has had a fantastic response from the local area and is delivering care to many more clients than we could have anticipated. Indeed, it has already exceeded ALL its forecasted targets – which is bloomin’ good news in anyone’s book!
Blossom Home Care is a well-known, highly regarded brand. Its market leading, award-winning ethos and values gave Blossom Home Care Barnard Castle the start it needed back in November 2020. The brand has won the 2017 ‘Best Customer Service’ award at the Hambleton Business Awards, the ‘Palliative Care Team’ award in the North East, Regional, Great British Care Awards 2019 and, most recently been, highly commended at the National 2020 British Care Awards for ‘Palliative Care Team’.
“We wanted a change in lifestyle and to be our own boss. The Blossom franchise appealed because we were confident that with the proven business model and support of John and Fiona, we could build a successful home care business; especially given Jo’s nursing background. What’s really surprised us is how quickly things have taken off!” said Paul.
“We’ve really enjoyed building a team that’s helping the local people we care for remain living in their own home.” added Jo. “Blossom’s holistic approach to care ensures we fully meet client needs while the 50-minute minimum call means our carers have time to interact with clients and do all the things that really matter. It’s great to represent an award-winning brand. Franchising with Blossom has certainly given us the confidence, and support, we felt we needed to take that step into business ownership.”
And just look at the result! We are really proud of the Barnard Castle Office and the fact that after just over two months in business they’re in front of all their targets and the phone is still ringing! It just demonstrates that the demand for bloomin’ good care is high and we’re sure this will apply whatever area of the country you are in!
