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.
