ProCare Nursing have been established for over 20 years and was formed in 1997, our office is shown above. Throughout July we have been talking about the nitty-gritty from green papers on social care the conservative government are currently writing, to the service that we offer and the kind of clients we work for, however we thought we would spice things up and take a trip down memory lane, so lets see what was happening in 1997 while ProCare Nursing was being established.
So here we go, what was happening in 1997 twenty two years ago, wow we feel old.
In 1997 the film Titanic was made and directed by James Cameron. Titanic starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet and the film raked in £22,961,480 in its opening weekend. Who remembers going back and forth to the cinema to watch Titanic over and over, we have a couple in our ProCare Nursing office and they are not ashamed to say it.
Everyone knows the phrase Google it ,right? Well in 1997 Google registered their domain name google.com, Google went from strength to strength hitting a few curve balls along the way. In 1997 who knew that Google were going to be caught up in scandals such as election rigging and all kinds of other human rights issues. Google today is worth £45,868,127,142 (Just under 46 billion pound).
Tony Blair was elected Prime Minister forming a Labour Government
