The facilities available enable the home to promote independence, maintain dignity and maximise quality of life for all residents. Residents and their families have the opportunity to enjoy a peaceful garden, patio and pond area.

Parkhill is a dual registered home providing long and short term care for residents with a wide range of needs. Carers provide 24 hour nursing care with an appointed named nurse and key worker, a varied menu and choice of home cooked meals and in house laundry service. In addition they also provide a stimulating timetable of activities and events focused on nurturing their physical and spiritual well-being.
Parkhill continuously strives for excellences in care. All staff are qualified to a minimum of NVQ level 2 within their field of expertise. As a home Parkhill has achieved Investors in People, Dignity in Care, Gold Standards Framework and most recently the excellence in care standard award.

  • The maximum Review Score for a care home / service is 10 and it is based on the published (including Restricted Publication) Reviews in the last 2 years. When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

    The Review Score of 9.415 for Parkhill Nursing Home is based on 12 Reviews/Recommendations in the last 2 years.

  • The Review Score (maximum of 10) is made up of a Quality Score (maximum of 5) and Quantity Score (maximum of 5):

    • Quality Score: 5 Points are available for the average rating. For each review the care home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The care home / service receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating. (Please note that the ratings of Very Poor and Poor have only been available since the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015.)

      The Quality Score (average rating) of 4.688 for Parkhill Nursing Home is calculated as follows: ( (108 Excellents x 5) + (27 Goods x 4) + (9 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 144 Ratings = 4.688

    • Quantity Score: 5 Points are available for the number of 'Positive Reviews' for a care home / service. A Positive Review is defined as:

      • Any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this care provider to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

      • Any Recommendation. Before the change from Recommendations to Reviews on 7th July 2015 all feedback was limited to Recommendations (ie positive comments only)

      The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

      1. 3 points for receiving the first Positive Review.

      2. 0.1 Point per Positive Review, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. (ie a care home / service requires 10 Positive Reviews to receive the maximum score of 1 point.)

      3. (Number of Positive Reviews ÷ number of registered beds) x 2, up to a maximum score of 1 Point. ie a care home / service has to receive a number of Positive Reviews equal to half of the number of registered beds to obtain the maximum score of 1 point. eg a care home / service with 40 registered beds has to receive 20 Positive Reviews to obtain the maximum score of 1 point.

        (For Adult Day Care Centres and Extra Care Housing which do not have a registered number of beds, 1) and 2) are replaced by the formula of 0.2 points per Review, up to a maximum score of 2 points. ie a listing needs 10 Reviews to receive the maximum score of 2 points

      The Quantity Score of 4.727 for Parkhill Nursing Home is calculated as follows:

      1. 12 Positive Reviews = 3

      2. 0.1 x 12 Positive Reviews = 1.200 (maximum score = 1)

      3. (12 Positive Reviews ÷ 33 Registered Beds) x 2 = 0.727

Our mum who has Alzheimer's became a resident at Parkhill in Dec 2015. After being in hospital for a long time, her previous care home sent mum there severely dehydrated and delirious then refused to have her back. We didn't think mum would come back from it. It is only due to the wonderful nursing care mum has received at Parkhill, that mum is now doing well. It is an excellent home, mum is treated with care, compassion, respect and dignity which are very important to us and mum. All of the staff are pleasant, cheerful and interact with the residents in a kind and respectful manner. Residents are encouraged to mix in the lounge area, this a homely and cosy atmosphere. Mum's room is beautiful, lovely, light and clean to a high standard. Activities are arranged most days. Food is varied home cooked and looks lovely. The level of cleanliness is above and beyond any other homes we've visited. Security and safety is paramount here. The manager is a great support to us, as are all the staff. Many thanks.

Parkhill is a friendly home and staff are happy. Management are considerate and helpful. The home looking very 'tired' and could do with updating. More access to outside would be good.

Parkhill has always shown care, dignity, respect and a lot of laughter to my friend. He has always felt completely at home and Parkhill has bent over backwards to provide answers and solutions to any problems my friend has had in the four years he has been there.

My mother has lived at Parkhill got more than 5 years. She came to Parkhill after living in sheltered accommodation for several years. Unfortunately she had several major falls and was becoming increasingly frail and losing her confidence.
She took a while to settle in at Parkhill but she soon regained her confidence and became stronger due to the constant care of the staff. She is comfortable with the routines and they appreciate the fact that she likes to go to her bedroom and night quite early. I like the fact that there is a low turnover of staff and the entertainment programme and Xmas activities are excellent.

My father went into the nursing home in December. The transition from hospital was really simple. The care from everyone in the home is excellent from the manager downwards. It is clean, tidy and very homely. All the carers are pleasant and upbeat. Nothing is too much trouble for all the staff. Any questions or requests are dealt with straight away. My father settled almost immediately and with it being Xmas soon after they make a great effort to make it a happy festive time. Have no complaints at all.

Mum was in a previous 'high class care home' for 10 months, because her needs changed she came to Parkhill. Staff are very attentive and create a 'buzz' in the main room where residents are encouraged to be. Residents feel included and chatter socially. residents are entertained well and have all their needs met in the best possible way. Mum is 'happy' there and feels listened to, seeing minor changes made to meet her changing needs. The food is traditional but there is choice. I am really happy with Parkhill and cannot speak highly enough of how they have looked after, over and above, for my mum. Thanks so much.

All we as a family wanted for our mother was for her to have the best. We feel that she was given the best by a wonderful, very friendly and caring team at Parkhill. Mum was cared for with dignity, respect and compassion. The staff were always helpful and approachable.
We as a family were treated with the same care and compassion that Mum had received, particularly during the last very difficult days of her life, we were totally overwhelmed with what the staff did for us and will never be able to thank them enough.

Robert Delaney, Proprietor at Parkhill Nursing Home responded to this review on 30 Nov 2015:

On behalf of all the staff at Parkhill I would like to thank Catherine and her family for the kind comments she has made about the care we provided for her mother. We regard it as a privilege to be able look after residents and families at such an important time in their lives. The kind comments and appreciation expressed by the families of those we have cared for are an enormous incentive and encouragement to all of us at Parkhill to continue with the care we have provided for more than twenty years. There is no greater incentive for our staff than to know that our care has been so kindly appreciated. We regard ourselves as fortunate to have had the opportunity to add Catherine's mum and her family to the many residents in Tameside that have become our friends over the years.

I am really pleased I decided that my mother would be going into Parkhill Nursing Home. All the staff are really caring and look after my mum so well. I do not have to worry about her wellbeing or safety anymore. She is healthier and happier than when she lived at home and I would have no hesitation in recommending Parkhill to anyone who needs a place to keep loved ones safe.

My mother has been in two previous care homes and deteriorated in both, we heard of Park Hill so took a chance on it and found after just one week a change in my mother for the better and has since improved and is happier, kept clean and put on weight and all round contented which is peace of mind for me. The home is clean and smells fresh and the staff greet you with a smile and can tell me anything I need to know about my mother.

The loving care they gave to my dad and to the whole family helped us through this sad time. I would just like to thank all the staff for all their kindness. Many Many Thanks.xx.
