Blossom Home Care Franchising Ltd is co-owned and co-directed by the founders of Blossom Home Care Ltd, husband and wife, John and Fiona Leggott.
Fiona, a qualified nurse, previously worked as a community staff nurse. She constantly witnessed the devastation that failing, low cost home care caused clients and their families. At this time, John and Fiona encountered personal experience of trying to find home care for a relative, whom was fiercely independent and wanted to stay at home. This highlighted the lack of high quality care services available, that could deliver care to clients in a rural area and so identified the need for a new company.
They looked for a franchise opportunity that fitted their vision of a well-run care provider that treated staff and clients with respect, dignity and delivered high quality care but could not find a franchise that fitted this ideology.
With John’s business skills and Fiona’s wealth of nursing and social care knowledge and skills they developed a new company; one that created a good patient experience by delivering the best standard of high-quality home care. The sort of care they would be happy for their own parents or relatives to experience.
In 2015, the head office in Northallerton was opened and then a second office in Tadcaster opened a couple of years later.
John and Fiona always had a vision, from the outset, to roll out their business model nationally so everyone could experience the exceptional care delivered by Blossom Home Care.
The strong values and ethos that John and Fiona have established now set a precedent to both employees and clients and instil a sense of pride in being part of the Blossom Family. Blossom Home Care are proud of being a highly regarded, market leading successful brand. Our Director, Fiona has received recognition for her work within the social care sector and won the prestigious, lifetime achievement, Great British Care Awards, Regional Winner 2019, North East Award ‘Outstanding Contribution to Social Care’.
