Review of Park View Care Home on Thursday 3 April 2014 by Betty B (Wife of resident)

My husband was treated with exceptional care, love and understanding during his stay in Park View. The staff, nurses and carers always treated him with kindness and dignity, allowing him to remain in control until his death. Peter made an impression on everyone during his stay of five weeks and many of the staff also made an impression on myself and saw their quality of care was exceptional.

Review of Park View Care Home on Monday 3 March 2014 by Sheila Nunn (Daughter of resident)

This care home is like a 5 star hotel with wonderful care alongside. My mum has been so happy since she has been here (July '13) and to know that the standard of care she is getting is excellent makes our lives so much better than before. She sold her home of 70 years and went in. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and at the age of 97, she has made some lovely new friends. My whole family is very impressed.

Review of Park View Care Home on Tuesday 10 December 2013 by June Talman (Resident)

The home is like a five star hotel. The carers are wonderful, friendly, and understanding. I've been here nearly a year and when I came they gave me three weeks to live, but with all their care and attention I'm now looking for somewhere to live so I can move in with my husband of 46 years, but I will miss the home like crazy - we will visit.

Review of Park View Care Home on Tuesday 8 October 2013 by Sheila Nunn (Daughter of resident)

I am so pleased that we have found this care home. My 97 year old mother is so happy here. Having spent the last 70 years in the same house it wasn't easy for her to leave. The staff have made her so welcome and the care is fantastic. What a difference this had made to all our lives.

Review of Park View Care Home on Thursday 4 July 2013 by Mike K (Resident)

The home,being built to order, had everything normally missing in the home in an adaptation. Large old house is; light switches and sockets at a reachable height, wide doors and right sized lifts. Ample space throughout (exception- bedroom very cramped for wheelchair maneuvering!)

We recommend this home because we were so impressed by the building and the accommodation, and the food plus the pleasant staff. We were very impressed by the spaciousness and the good atmosphere. We also liked the interior decoration. I can only comment on 2 options below as I was only a visitor.

Review of Park View Care Home on Tuesday 5 February 2013 by David Youle (Husband of resident)

My wife and I needed a placement in order to visit our recently born grandson. The Managers were exceptionally flexible and the ambiance of the home is Grade 1. Quality furnishing and facilities and the staff are exceptionally helpful and responsive to individual needs. Care given is of an outstanding quality and the catering is excellent. Staff are meticulous to detail, very efficient and friendly. The quality of access and parking is also excellent whilst maintaining security.

Review of Park View Care Home on Friday 18 January 2013 by Hazel W (Daughter of former resident)

We visited several homes within the Ipswich area. The reception of the management, there willingness to make the right choices for us and our family were outstanding and knowledge of nursing benefits etc. Although a new build it still had lots of things to make it warm and friendly. Staff were friendly, asking questions to gain knowledge. Unfortunately my father only spent 5 days at this home as was sadly rushed to A&E and passed away, but Park View gave him an amazing Christmas and last few days of his life.

The person I look after is probably one of the most challenging residents a care home could have. She shouts 'help' often for 8 hours a day. She is treated with the utmost kindness and care and nothing is too much trouble.

Review of Park View Care Home on Wednesday 2 January 2013 by Helen Beecher (Daughter of resident)

Park View is like a hotel. It is both beautiful inside with plush furnishings and outside with a wonderful landscaped garden. It is directly across from the park. My father lived here for palliative care and as a family we were welcomed to use the home as our own, with kitchen facilities on each floor, a comfortable lounge and additional sitting rooms. The staff were like family and helped us while we were coming to terms with my dads cancer and during the difficult hours of his passing. This home really is a home.

Excellent accommodation, knowledgeable staff. The staff team are caring, experienced, approachable and have excellent skills in supporting and caring for people with dementia. The menus for the clients are nutritious and varied. We as a family would recommend this home to anyone who was looking for care for their family or friends. Just to add, the manager has gone out of her way to support my mother-in-law and us as a family with the move to Park View. Thank you.
