Review of Park House on Saturday 21 December 2013 by Tracey Marshall (Relative of Care Home Resident)

The home has a warm, friendly feel to the environment & I can see that money is being spent on things such as painting to give the rooms a modern & clean look. The staff are approachable, easy to talk to & the nurses are always willing to discuss any questions that I have about my aunt. The menus appear to provide a choice of meals & I know my aunt is in the care of some very special people.

Review of Park House on Tuesday 26 November 2013 by Alan Forrest (Son of a Resident)

When my Mam came to Park House she was on the brink, but with the dedication from staff, my Mam has been here for 4 months which we didn't think possible, she is going from strength to strength, which is not bad for someone who is 90 yrs old. Her carers always treat her with respect and dignity, we always get an update from staff every day, on how she has been doing, i.e., sleeping, eating, her health, as a family we are happy with the services my Mam receives.

Review of Park House on Sunday 8 September 2013 by Michael Davison (Resident's Son)

My father has been a resident at Park House for eighteen months. We find the care offered to him by a hardworking staff to be excellent. As visitors the family are warmly welcomed daily and are given regular updates as to how my father is doing.The home is fortunate to be 30 metres away from a doctor's surgery, who also provide excellent care. We believe the home to be well run by a diligent manager who always tries to do the best for residents.

Review of Park House on Friday 9 August 2013 by mark ritson (septimus ritson my dad lives at park house)

After looking at other care homes my first feeling when going in to park house was a good feeling of friendly and caring staff. They have all looked after my Dad very well. All the staff are very good with every resident that I have seen in the years I have been going in to park house even with staff changing! I think it must be very difficult to care for so many different needs! It can be very hard for many people who have to make the hard choice to go in to care but I can recommend Park House.
