Parkview Gardens is a 60 bedded two-storey residential home for older adults living with dementia, sensory impairment and physical disabilities. Parkview Gardens is divided into five houses, with all of the houses containing separate dining/communal areas. All residents' bedrooms within the houses have on-suite facilities. Ground floor bedrooms have patio doors leading out onto secure gardens, the first floor have balconies and each first floor bedroom has views of our beautiful gardens. We have a self-serve café/seating area on the ground floor and upstairs we have a shop and hairdressers, laundry for residents to do their own washing and drying if they so wish.

Parkview Gardens is a modern, light and spacious place for our residents to live and an excellent working environment for our staff.

We are proud to deliver high quality care for our residents and provide a homely atmosphere and are one big happy family.

    The May 2018 CQC inspection also captured the views of residents and families:

    People who lived at the home spoke fondly of staff with one person describing staff as their "friends". Residents were observed telling staff members they had missed them when they had been off. One relative said "You never see anyone here in dirty clothes". On another occasion we observed a staff member supporting a person to style their hair after they had just woke up. This demonstrated staff understood the importance of promoting people's dignity.

    Our cooks have many years of knowledge and catering experience between them. Menus are reviewed on the seasons of the year and residents are involved with menu choices which are discussed at residents meetings. Special requests/requirements/nutritional and diabetic needs are catered for. Our kitchens were awarded five stars from the Environmental Health Team.

    Healthy snacks and fruit are available to residents throughout the day. We provide a choice of hot meals every day and residents are able to choose what they would like at meal times.
