Posted 15/02/2021 : By: Debbie Dennis

Paul and Jo 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 weeks of the office starting to deliver care, the business already had enough turnover to have hit break-even point! This was achieved through the office being part of the well-known brand Blossom Home Care, that is highly regarded, market leading and award-winning with strong ethos and values.

The brand has won the 2017 ‘Best Customer Service’ award at the Hambleton Business Awards and the ‘Palliative Care Team’ award in the North East, Regional, Great British Care Awards 2019. Most recently being high 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.”
