Park View Care Home

My mother went into Park View at very short notice (less than 24 hours) for urgently required respite. The staff and the manager in particular, could not have been more helpful. The home is clean and very well run and food and service are of the highest standards. I hope the need does not arise again, but if it does I would not hesitate to pick the phone up to Park View right away without looking further afield.

Brilliant Nursing Home
I would highly recommend this Nursing Home to anyone what you see is what you get. Not only is the building lovely inside and out the staffing levels are very good and the staff really do care. Unfortunately mum was only here for a very short time due to illness. The staff also work very hard to meet individual needs and has a lovely homely feel to it. The management recognise the need for caring and good levels of staff.

Having spent 10 weeks in hospital following a severe stroke my husband moved to Park View. We have been so pleased with all aspects of care. In the first 2 weeks of residency my husband improved significantly. The staff are so caring and keep me well informed on my husband's progress and medical needs. After 2 months he is recovering well thanks to excellent care and surroundings.

Dad has been in the care home since January 2014 and although his health is deteriorating, his care is 'excellent' in every respect. He is always clean, well fed and checked regularly that he is drinking. Although now bedridden, he is always being checked. All the staff have excellent relations with residents and visitors. The standard of professional healthcare has never been below excellent/perfect.

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.

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.

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.
