Park View, Witham, Essex

Park View is situated in Witham and many of the rooms overlook the parklands. Yet, Parkview’s unique location is such that the heart of the town is a short walk away, giving both peaceful location and the busy town.

Park View has a wonderful friendly atmosphere, and paved courtyards allow the space for outdoor activities as well and all these activities are designed to stimulate, amuse and entertain all of those cared for.

The Home is spacious with beautiful lounges, dining areas and a conservatory, again another peaceful area for either gentle activities or to sit and read or complete a crossword.

Reviews

9.5 Park View has a Review Score of 9.5 (9.466)

The Review Score of 9.5 (maximum of 10) for Park View is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 28 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Park View in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.9 out of 5 from 16 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • 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 4.536 for Park View is calculated as follows: ( (198 Excellents x 5) + (120 Goods x 4) + (18 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 336 Ratings = 4.536

  • 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 4.93 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Park View is based on 16 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 17.2 positive Reviews (86 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 16 Reviews ÷ 17.2 Target = 0.930

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

My mother was admitted to Park View in November 2014 when her Alzheimers became unmanageable at home. The staff were extremely caring in a very difficult situation right from the start. I have found both the carers, management and support staff exemplary in their very difficult roles. I admire and applaud their patience and professional attitude and have seen them perform above and beyond their remit.

My wife has been here 18 months. She is in comfortable surroundings. The meals are acceptable but from my point of view need more variation and more flavoursome.
She relishes the more spicier extras I take into her.
Towels, flannels and toilet rolls are regularly lacking. I would like to see more activities to exercise her brain.

I have been here as a resident since May 2016. I have a quiet, private, first-floor room which I am obliged to pay for.
The management and caring staff are kind, patient, overworked, underpaid I like the home and all the staff but miss having many opportunities for good conversations.

Dad has been taken care of by Park View for a year now. It has taken time but he is settled and happy here. He may not say much but I know he appreciates all the people involved with his care. The carers and all staff are first class. If anything is not quite right, it is soon put right. The home is very well led by the Manager and her team.

Park View is an excellent place. The staff and management treat residents with care, respect and dignity. They are so patient and engage my mother even when she is having a difficult period. They encourage and never give up and are always happy and cheerful. I can turn up at any time and always find a cheerful atmosphere. I am happy to know that my mother is well cared for and in a good place.

As a first experience of care homes, it has been surprisingly good- all the staff are very caring and friendly. Mum has settled in very well. It is comforting to know she is so well cared for especially as her condition is deteriorating. She enjoys the food provided especially the cooked breakfast.

I visit my wife several times a week. When the weather was warmer I sometimes took her into the park. At other times, I would read to her, in the conservatory or her room, or sit looking into the park watching the birds and the occasional squirrel, or the children in the playground. We would be offered tea or coffee, and biscuits. Or we would just sit and talk, and reminisce.

My mum has been in the home since June. The care she reached here is outstanding. The staff are always very kind and considerate and give mum all the time she needs. Although my mum has Alzheimer's and Dementia, she says she is very happy and well cared for. The home is always clean and tidy and the staff create a very caring and happy atmosphere. It is a joy to visit. The laundry and office staff are also very good. My mum has improved since coming to Park View. I highly recommend this home for any awards - they are outstanding.

I have always found Park View to be a first class residential home. The staff are always kind and caring towards the residents. The home itself is very well run and the hygiene and care are excellent. My mother has been in care for a number of years and I feel that she would not be with us if not for the care that she has received. Well done to Park View and all of its staff.

It has been a very difficult and upsetting time putting mum into a care home- but Park View has been very patient with mum and she now appears to have accepted the change and is content. This has put our minds at rest and feel the best decision was made and we have nothing but praise for the home and most importantly the staff.

My wife has been in Park View for 9 months and naturally it took some time to settle. She has been well cared for by ever cheerful staff. She now stays in her room mainly, I think, due to the lack of communication with other residents with most having dementia. Her main complaint often mentioned is how bland the food is. She loves spicy food whereas most elderly do not and the chef has to cook for the majority. The main thing is she is in a safe environment.

I have been treated so kindly since coming to Park View. Being diabetic, there have been a few problems trying to sort a diet which suits me but every care is taken to assist with this. There is truthfully not one member of staff who has ever upset me in any way. It helps when everyone is so friendly and helpful. If I could not spend Xmas with family, I'm sure here would be fine.
