Activities at Park View Care Home
Our home is always full of life, and we can thank our wonderful Activities Coordinators for this. Dedication to creating a unique and interesting activities programme is what sets us apart from other homes. We always take into consideration that some people would prefer to pursue their own interests, which is why our team strive to incorporative activities that cater to a wide range of tastes and hobbies. Our trips out are always fun and exciting as well, and residents are guaranteed to return with stories to tell their loved ones!

Life at Park View Care Home
Pet Therapy at Park View
Today we had Pet therapy. Our residents love pets in our home and today we had birds! All 108 residents got to witness seeing them as we were able to go around in each individual's room. The birds were happy to sit on resident's arms, or even run around the beds.
The smile the resident's faces lit up the room!
Breakfast with Santa
Today from a lovely family member we was invited to have breakfast with Santa. We all enjoyed a fry up and enjoyed seeing Santa and receiving gifts.
This was run by the national autistic society.
All residents enjoyed fireworks in the car park of the home.
We also had hot chocolate, hot baileys, hot dogs and burgers! We all wrapped up cosy and enjoyed watching all the fireworks along with residents' families and friends.
Persian Tabby Kittens visit our residents
Today we had kitten therapy in park view! 3 new Persian tabby kittens came to visit our residents.
All the residents got to enjoy seeing them, residents that are bedbound especially enjoyed the kittens on the bed,
They see all 108 residents that are in the home. Resident love a visit from animals.
Trip to Butlins
Today Renata, the general manager, along with our activities team, care practitioner, nurses and carers are on a 5 day trip with the residents to Butlins!
The residents can't wait and were all singing "We're all going on a summer holiday".
That's them getting ready to leave - we can't wait to show all the fab pictures and tell all about our little holiday!
GSF Care homes Training Programme
6 years ago we began to participate in GSF care homes training programme. The Programme assists in supporting elderly residents as they near the end of their lives. We are very proud to be accredited. We submitted an e-portfolio in April this year, we embedded the learning into our practice, our staff are competent and confident in supporting our residents as they approach the end of their lives.
We received a platinum accreditation!
Completing this programme has helped us to avoid hospital admissions during end of life care, and we have been able to work closely with our GP and end of life facilitator to reduce hospital admission and ensure that residents are able to spend their last days in a place of their preference, I would like to say a massive thank you to all the staff who have made this possible.
