We have unique training and development initiatives through our Ideal Academy, including industry-leading training, career progression opportunities via a range of learning resources such as E-learning and specialist workshops.

Ideal Academy was founded with the idea that anyone can have a career in care. Somebody could start with us having absolutely no experience, on a starting salary of £22,000 per annum with paid breaks, and can very quickly be fully trained to have a career with us through our internal management course, Ideal Futures.

Sarah knows that supporting the Ideal Carehomes staff team is a key priority and has recently introduced a ‘Wellbeing Pathway’ to the Ideal Academy.

The pathway consists of a regular mindfulness techniques and advice on nutrition, exercise and ways to reduce stress and improve overall health and wellbeing.

The company also recognises and celebrates their staff team each year with a glitzy awards gala evening, which sees thousands of nominations from colleagues, residents and their families and friends for carers and ancillary staff who have consistently gone the extra mile to make a difference to the lives of others.

Managing Director, Stacey Linn, said:

We are very excited to be opening our first luxury care home in Shrewsbury and are keen to hear from people living in the local community who are seeking fulfilling careers within social care. Whilst our environments are second to none, it is our staff team who make our homes the best places to live, and who help our residents to retain their independence whilst supporting them to live an active lifestyle.

We are looking for people who really want to make a difference and would like to be part of the Lime Trees story right from the very start’.
