Ideal Carehomes has announced the appointment of Paul Farmer as Managing Director.  Paul is joining the company to support the 15 homes in continuing to improve service provision to current and future residents, focussing on promoting person-centred care and offering aspirational lifestyle choices. 

Paul was previously Managing Director at St. Philip’s Care where he was responsible for 28 care homes providing nursing, residential and mental health care in England and Scotland.  He has over 15 years’ experience in health care property and his strong leadership on compliance and quality care delivery at St Philip’s Care saw them achieve a prestigious award as the “Most Outstanding Care Group” at the UK Over 50s Housing Awards 2016.

Ideal Carehomes is part of the LNT Group and is sister-company to care home builder, LNT Care Developments.  Matt Lowe, Chief Executive of LNT Group welcomed Paul Farmer to the team:

“Paul’s appointment denotes an exciting milestone in Ideal Carehomes future.  We are pleased to have his knowledge and experience to continue improving our offer to current and future residents.”

Paul Farmer said: “I am joining Ideal Carehomes at a very exciting time.  Over the past 18 months, Ideal Carehomes has taken stock of their position and reflected on the changing realities of delivering care.   The expectations of care, from residents and their families, have changed substantially in the last decade and the regulatory environment is certainly catching up to this.  

Given the quality of the purpose-built care homes, Ideal Carehomes’ had a good basis on which to build improvements, allowing an acceleration of improvements in the delivery of care.   Now that ground-work has been done, and the results are bearing fruits, I am looking forward to building on that work further. Alongside growing the portfolio, my focus will be on offering our residents personalised active lifestyles through aspirational choices.”
