Review of Parkhill Nursing Home

I would recommend Parkhill as I have been in there for a year in 2006-07 after a serious illness. The staff were very good at helping me to walk, eat by myself etc. I have recently been in again after problems with my hands, this time for respite care and found the care to be very good. The staff are hard working and very friendly. Perhaps the one criticism would be that the showers and toilet facilities need upgrading. A wet room would be very beneficial to enable residents to have regular showers or baths.

Review of Parkhill Nursing Home

I found a nursing home for my ex husband 10 years ago, I was not very happy with it, then it was being closed from nursing and I had to find another. I am so happy, about 3 years ago I found Parkhill. When I entered we were made so welcome, the cleanliness is very good, the staff all seem lovely, caring and very thoughtful. I thought it was more a hotel than a care home. The only smell you get is the beautiful scented aromas, of the course unless someone has used the toilet.

Review of Parkhill Nursing Home

My mother was cared for by the staff at the home for three years. She was treated with dignity, respect, and loving tender care. Her nursing plan was regularly updated, and myself and other members of the family attended frequent reviews. Excellent leadership - maintained high standards. Christine, David, and senior nurses always had time to listen to any queries . Their kindness supported my mum, but also myself and family. Thank goodness for Parkhill.

From the moment I walked through the door of Parkhill Care Home I knew it was the home I wanted my mum to live in, the friendly atmosphere and the caring staff I know my mum would be well looked after, and she is. All the residents are well looked after, I have seen this whilst visiting my mum and I have peace of mind 24/7 knowing she is well looked after.

Review of Parkhill Nursing Home

I turned up announced to look around Parkhill initially for 2 weeks respire for my mum. I knew within 5 minutes of entering Parkhill it was the right place. Parkhill became Mum's new home with her staying permanently. Each and every member of staff treated my mum with the utmost respect and dignity and met her individual needs 100%. Parkhill has a lively, friendly atmosphere and is one big happy family. My mum recently passed away on the 27th April 2013. I was so overwhelmed with the care, dignity and respect of the staff of which they gave to my mum in her final days. Parkhill still keeps in touch with me and has invited me back to the fantastic events they put on for residents. I am made so welcome by all the staff when I see them. One of my mum's carers (before Mum moved into Parkhill) went to visit her a few weeks later, she sent me a message after seeing Mum it reads: "Aud looked great today and well cared for, happy and interested in everything around her. She gave me a lovely welcome and I am certain she recognised me as a friend. I shed a little tear when I left her as she looked so pretty - when you look after people you get very close to them, she looked so at home there, safe and happy and amongst new friends." Yours faithfully B. Kenyon

Review of Parkhill Nursing Home

My sister and I have recommended Parkhill to many of our friends for their loved ones. Like us they wanted their parents to be in a safe, secure, and happy environment, knowing when you leave to go home, they will be looked after 100% by caring professional staff. This care home is exactly what it says, a caring home. The management and staff are wonderful and you can approach them with any queries or concerns. Many activities go on through the week, and trips out. The residents are encouraged to join in, but are not forced to do so. The building and gardens are beautiful.
