A recent review from the niece of an Ideal Carehomes’ resident wrote: “Our aunt has been at this care home since May 2017. As far as we are concerned she has always been treated with care, love and respect. The manager at the home is very supportive to us and she’s always available for a chat and advice if we need it. l don’t think we could have found a better care home for our aunt. She’s settled there and seems happy. We can’t fault it. The staff are always welcoming and we feel content with our choice for her.”

Paul Farmer, Managing Director of Ideal Carehomes said “To win this award for three consecutive years is a great achievement and is testament to the hard work and dedication of our staff.  The wellbeing and happiness of our residents is at the heart of everything we do and we are continually moving our homes forward to provide them with the very best care possible. 

For instance, we have recently invested in electronic systems for care planning and medication management to better aid record-keeping and enable staff to monitor resident requirements much more easily.  Alongside this, we have introduced Lifestyle Managers who are devoted to social activities and a brand new induction and training programme for managers and staff. 

It is pleasing to see that residents and their relatives are happy with the care we provide and that our homes are a great place to live.  We look forward to sharing and celebrating this great news with residents, relatives and our staff.”
