Overview

The Review Score of 9.2 (maximum of 10) for Parkview House Care Home is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.2 out of 5 from 23 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Parkview House Care Home in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 21 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

Detailed Breakdown

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. 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 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.

    The Average Rating of 4.245 for Parkview House Care Home is calculated as follows: ( (114 Excellents x 5) + (115 Goods x 4) + (43 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) ) ÷ 274 Ratings = 4.245

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. 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 Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Parkview House Care Home is based on 21 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 10.6 positive Reviews (53 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 21 Reviews ÷ 10.6 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

9.2 Parkview House Care Home has a Review Score of 9.2 (9.245) from 23 Reviews

My father was welcomed into the home by the carer who was in charge of his particular area in the home so he was not confused by too many new faces.
I have visited at different times of day but on every occasion there have been carers working hard, making tea or serving meals, taking residents to the bathroom etc. There are various activities for the residents if they wish to join in. My father is kept clean and tidy and the care home always appears fresh and warm.

This review relates to the first day of residence of my mother in law. In a sentence, the care and support of all staff and management have been wonderful. We feel hugely relieved that we are leaving our mother in such caring, supportive hands. We look forward to developing relationships with all the staff at Parkview.

I do feel the care, carers and kindness of the staff has greatly improved over the last 6-8 months, and in the last 3 months is even better. All the staff are good now and not just some of them.

The entertainment and interaction with residents is much, much better and long may it continue.

Very kind and caring staff. Nicely decorated inside and out. Clean rooms and personal items allowed on walls. Plenty of flowers and a pleasant garden. Various activities are offered to residents of the home and also outside. Good medical care is given - access to doctors and district nurse, hairdresser, chiropodist, and a head massage is all available. Day rooms are well laid out and not too crowded.

Parkview House Care Home provides a caring environment. My mother-in-law's physical needs are well provided for. She is allowed to take meals and to get up and retire at her own convenience. My mother in law does not take much advantage of the activities provided and we feel she could be encouraged to do this although ultimately this is her own choice. Her one complaint is that the tea is too weak!

My husband has a rare type of dementia. The staff at Park View have been wonderful in supporting him and have taken a lot of care in learning about his illness. In addition, they have given me emotional support which has been much appreciated.

Overall, I am very happy with the care home and my mum has settled in extremely well here. The care staff are very sweet, effcient, helpful and kind. A few, however, are not very "warm" with the residents and do not interact very much with them other than doing the basics. The receptionist lady is lovely and so helpful and makes such a big difference to families.

My mum really enjoys her meals at Parkview and she looks very well. I do think that there should be more activities including singers, maybe dancers, entertainment trips to the coast? On a much more regular basis.

Mum had several short stays in Parkview for respite care, enjoyed her stays and was happy to return there as opposed to other care homes we had tried. We had at last found a "care home" that actually put an emphasis on care and where staff seem to work together alongside management.

Mum, unfortunately, broke her hip a year ago and needed 24hr care. Parkview found her a ground floor room, covered the hospital transition and supported her recovery needs while she was immobile, eventually getting her back on her feet. Mum's dementia, unfortunately, advanced quite quickly so she stayed on. She has been looked after very well and her changing needs taken into account.

Parkview staff are fantastic. Staff turnover seems to be low, allowing relationships to be built with residents as opposed to high attrition/contract staff I met in other homes. They are friendly and attentive to residents wants and needs. Mum is always dressed well, clean and happy when I visit, regardless of time of day. Mum certainly enjoyed the day activities last year, the seaside trip last summer was amazing and events such as the music entertainment days help bring visitors into the home.

Caring staff who look after their residents as individuals, not as a group.
I'm always kept in touch as to what has been happening.
Clean rooms, activities on offer to whomsoever wants them and food served on time every day to establish a healthy routine. Well done.

Staff and day to day care are excellent.
My mother is severely sight impaired and finds life very boring. She can not join in many of the activities but would welcome more communication and conversation with staff members.
Cleanliness has been reported on various occasions. Comparatively minor matters made worse because of my mother's poor sight - getting teeth brushed, hair brushed and finding the bathroom cupboard.

Jasmine Pearson, Sales/Marketing at Parkview House Care Home responded to this review on 31 Jul 2017:

Thank you for your feedback! I personally ensure a member of staff contacts you to see how we can provide more appropriate activities for your Mother. If you need any further assistance with this matter please do not hesitate to get in contact!

In my opinion, Park View is a pleasant and happy environment. We are pleased with the level of personal care and the staff are caring and friendly. There seems to be enough to entertain the residents (quizzes, puzzles, skittles etc) to keep their minds active (I wonder if there could be a little more ie more frequently?). The hairdressing salon and visits from the masseur an the chiropodist are good for her well being.

Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to hear that you are pleased with the level of care and staffing. We really appreciate your thoughts and would like to reassure you that we have appointed a new Activities Coordinator whom has now produced and is implementing a new Activities plan for all residents. Please feel free to pop in at your convenience to have a look at the new Activities Log, which you will find in reception. If you have any further questions or queries, please let any member of staff know and we will be happy to help you further. Look forward to seeing you soon.

The purpose built modern care home is surrounded by beautiful well-maintained gardens. It is ideally situated next to a public park with excellent transport facilities and a large range of shops close by. There is space for visitor parking and the staff are well-trained, caring and sensitive to individual needs. Accommodation and food (choice of menu) are excellent. An activity coordinator has recently been appointed and safety and medication are well organised. A recent change of manager has seen further improvements.
