The Ideal Team…

When you join Ideal Carehomes, you become part of an award-winning luxury care home group with over 10 years’ experience in providing person-centred residential and dementia care to residents in beautiful, state-of-the-art homes. 

The people we employ are the best at what they do and provide the highest standards of care to our residents. With higher than average rates of pay, industry leading training and development, as well as the opportunity to work with our team of likeminded caring individuals – there is no better time to join our growing group of care homes.
