I visit Parkside regularly and find the staff very helpful and friendly. I visit three residents and although they are sometimes forgetful due to dementia all seem contented and well cared for. I think that Parkside is one of the most best in Penarth.

Very happy with all aspects of my fathers stay (8 months) at Parkside. Dad, his wife and I were all made to feel very welcome immediately and all the managerial and nursing staff were courteous & helpful at all times. We particularly appreciated the advice & understanding afforded to us when Dad's needs increased and Dad had to leave Parkside. I have now looked at quite a few care homes and in my mind Parkside is by far & always the 'homeliest'. I would certainly recommend Parkside for those needing residential care.

There are daily activities and I am amazed at the beautiful pictures my mother has painted. The cleanliness is outstanding.

First Class Care
I have been delighted with the care and kindness shown to my mother by all the staff at Parkside. Everyone is very patient and exceptionally helpful. I feel very fortunate that my mother is looked after by such thoughtful and compassionate carers. Every effort is made to ensure her comfort and preserve her dignity and it is done in a sensitive, friendly and unobtrusive manner. Parkside is absolutely first class and I have no hesitation in commending it to anyone in search of the very best residential care.

Parkside House Care Home

A very caring and professional home
The mamagement and all the staff at Parkside House cared for Mum in a very kind and professional way. It was very difficult when it came to the time for the most precious member of our family to be moved into a Care Home and especially at the age of 99 years. We looked at several homes and we were waiting for that feeling that one gets when you feel “yes Mum will be safe and cared for here”. Parkside House gave us that feeling and it proved that they not only met but exceeded our expectations. Dementia is a terrible illness and although this came late in Mum’s life it worsened quickly and proved to be very debilitating. The staff working on the Care Unit on the first floor always showed patience and kindness to all those in their care. The management and all the caring staff always afforded Mum dignity and kindness. When times were very difficult they maintained a high standard of professionalism and all always looked for solutions to ease the situation, right up until the end. We cannot praise Parkside House, management and staff, enough for the kindness and support they gave Mum and our family

Extremely satisfied
I am extremely satisfied with the accommodation, the manager Alison Aplin, the caring staff and the meals provided at Parkside. Always clean and tidy and no unpleasant odours! Mum has been there for 3.75 years and she's been very well cared for the entire time. I viewed other care homes before Parkside but this one was far and above the best. Nothing is too much trouble and my family and I always made welcome whenever we visit. 10/10

Parkside House Care Home

The staff at Parkside have been amazing, not only offering support to Mum but also to me since making 5 he very tough decision to move Mum into a home. Over the time Mum has been there, through the patience, understanding and kindness of all the staff at Parkside House, Mum has overcome the severe anxiety she was suffering as a result of the stroke, and the time I spend with her now is quality time. Mum is beginning to enjoy life again and the decision to put Mum at Parkside is one I will never regret. Instead of my family feeling isolated and alone whilst trying to provide the best care for Mum I know there is a team around her who are giving her the best possible care and attention, and finally I'm seeing my Mum smiling again.

Parkside House Care Home

We were very pleased with the care my mother received at Parkside. Although she was reluctant to leave the independence of her own home the friendly and caring staff made the transition much smoother than expected. It was important to have people we trusted looking after mum since we live in the USA and could only visit once or twice a year. Communication with the staff was easy using e-mail, whether we had a question or if they needed to keep us up to date on mum's condition. Highly recommended for caring, friendly and flexible staff.
