Blossom Home Care is a family business, providing ‘bloomin’ good care’ to the elderly residents of Northallerton, Darlington, Yarm, Thirsk, Bedale, Hurworth, Neasham, Wynyard, Sedgefield and beyond, from our Northallerton Head Office. Along with Wetherby, Ripon, Harrogate, York or Leeds from our Tadcaster Office. We enable our clients to remain in their own home for as long as possible and to partake in the activities that can make a real difference to their quality of life. We are a team of compassionate, competent, highly skilled individuals who care about what we do. Our Carers are backed by our qualified nurse, are rewarded well for a job well done and can take time with their clients. Coming from a rural background, we understand the importance of home and that elderly folk can be fiercely independent about remaining at home for as long as they possibly can. Blossom Home Care help’s facilitate this.
Owned and operated by Fiona and John, the business was established when they realised that there was a need for a service provider offering quality personalised care to elderly people who want to remain in their own home.
As a fully qualified Registered Nurse, Fiona worked as a community staff Nurse and constantly witnessed the devastation that failing, low-cost home care was having on people and their families.
Unfortunately, care has become a cost driven industry. Local Government’s are under tremendous pressure and have no option other than to drive down the cost of care in order to achieve budgets. The result is that staff and services are put under pressure to deliver. John and Fiona believe that the vast majority of failed care is due to this downward pressure on costs and wanted to do something about it, especially as people’s lives are at stake.
