Review of Parkside House Nursing Home

I have just visited my auntie, she looked so well looked after. She has gained weight, she looked healthy. Her room was tidy and clean. She told me that this was her home now. She said is is involved in all her care it's her who decides what she wants to do for the day and staff go along with it so she is happy as she is still in control of life. She is sad that the home manager has resigned as she is very fond of her. She said the manager was born to care, always with a smile and always makes sure things are done with respect & dignity. Thanks to all her staff, they do a good job, it's not easy to be a carer.

My husband is on Poppy floor, well looked after, given choice and all care provided is with dignity. The staff are brilliant, always cheerful & bubbly, any concerns raised are dealt with, swiftly. My husband is content, he just wants to be at home however due to his condition he knows he needs 24 hour care which he is receiving now. The quality of care is second to none.
