Review of Park House on Monday 9 September 2013 by Diana K (Daughter of Resident)

Park House is a real home from home. We always get a warm welcome and Mum seems content and happy. The house is warm, clean and fresh as is Mum's cosy room. The staff are caring and patient with everyone. I can call at any time to catch up on Mum's progress and I do appreciate this. I know that Mum is in a safe and secure environment in Park House, cared for by lovely people.

Review of Park House on Friday 4 May 2012 by Charles S (Respite Resident)

When visiting the care home before my stay, the staff, and management were very welcoming, explaining and showing all my needs I would have and I would require. The other residents whilst staying there were always in good cheerful spirit. A lovely outside garden to sit in. The activities were very interactive and jolly well run. My room was lovely bright and very clean. The whole atmosphere of the care home made my stay and recovery, one to be recommended anytime. The attitude of the staff was most refreshing.

When we were looking for a care home to admit my mother we were impressed by the happy atmosphere and professionalism emanating from Park House. In the two and a half years my mother has been there these views have been reinforced. I thoroughly recommend it to everyone.
