Gloucester MP, Richard Graham performed the official opening of Park View, Gloucester on Friday 21 October.

Now registered with Care Quality Commission, Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and Gloucestershire Adult Social Care, Park View is a state-of-the-art care home situated in Gloucester. With specialist dementia and nursing facilities, residential care, Close Care Plus apartments and respite care, Park View offers a range of care services for older people and is now open to residents.

The official opening was attended by local dignitaries including the Mayor of Gloucester, Councillor Neil Hampson and Chief Executive of GFirst LEP David Owen. Park View was part-funded by GFirst LEP, through the Gloucestershire Infrastructure Investment Fund (GIIF). The event was also attended by local health care professionals, key suppliers and staff from the Gloucester-based Markey Group, who are behind the new development.

Park View provides 24-hour individualised care and already has its first residents. The 97 bed state of the art care home will have capacity for 102 residents across four floors and will be supported by a dedicated team of care staff. The home will provide employment for around 150 people when full.

Paul Markey from the Markey Group, commented: “We are immensely proud of Park View, which is going to be a great asset to Gloucester and the surrounding area. The whole project has brought together many different aspects of the Markey Group resulting in a fantastic finished product.

“The team here at Park View will provide 'a home for life' in which individuals can flourish and thrive. They will adopt a holistic approach dedicated to meeting the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual needs of all the residents. Early feedback from residents and their families is already very positive”.

Richard Graham, MP for Gloucester, added: “Park View is another strong example of Gloucester moving forward. This is business-led regeneration of a prominent cross roads site that was derelict, now reborn as a modern care home open to residents – providing a service we need and 150 jobs.

On the top floor of Park View there are 17 self-contained one and two bedroomed apartments, each with a separate bedroom and ensuite shower room and a living/dining area with a galley-style kitchen where residents can live as independently, or with as much support, as they require.

September 2016 - Close Care Apartments Open

Close Care Plus Apartments  
On the top floor of Park View there are 17 self-contained one and two bedroomed apartments, each with a separate bedroom and ensuite shower room and a living/dining area with a galley-style kitchen where residents can live as independently, or with as much support, as they require.

Facilities
We believe that the apartments at Park View are best suited to those people who are still quite independent and we have made the assumption that you will be able to shower or wash and dress yourself. We also assume that you are able to make a cup of tea and a light snack using the provisions we have stocked your kitchenette with.   Your breakfast, lunch time and evening meal are prepared for you, and can be eaten in the communal lounge dining room, or in your own apartment as you wish.   There is an assisted bathroom where staff can help you enjoy a soak,  and a domestic laundry room where you can do your own washing and ironing, with or without support if you do not wish to send your washing to our main laundry.

If you need any further help with your activities of daily living, we will be able to provide this with our onsite staff, and have a range of packages of care with different fee levels to suit your needs,  however should your care requirements increase beyond the scope of the staffing ratio, we may request that you transfer to another room in the home, where we can better meet your needs.
