types of care at park view

At Park View we are dedicated to providing person-centred care that meets the individual needs of our residents.

 

We understand that a holistic approach comprises many elements, and our model of care enables us to offer residential care encompassing the physical needs of each resident, as well as enhancing their emotional, psychological, and spiritual wellbeing.

Our dedicated staff are committed to providing all of our residents with exactly the right level of support to meet their individual needs and enhance their wellbeing.

We believe that everyone should be valued as an individual and that by working in partnership with our residents, their relatives, friends and carers we maintain and promote the wellbeing, maximise independence and ensure our residents feel comfortable and happy at all times.  

The types of care provided at Park View are listed below. Please click on the title for further information.

Close Care Plus Apartments

On the top floor of Park View there are 17 self-contained 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.

Fees and Care Packages for Close Care Plus Apartments

Of the 17 Apartments, one has two bedrooms,  and the remainder have one.  Because they range from smaller to larger sizes, and have different aspects, the weekly fee varies.   

The fees for the Apartments start at £595.00 per week.  This includes a service charge which covers all your food (within the planned menu), heating, lighting, utilities, council tax, laundry and housekeeping fees.  It also includes some support with personal care, support at mealtimes, assistance with medication, night checks etc.   If you need any further help with your activities of daily living, we will be able to provide this with our onsite staff.

Should you require extra care we can put in place a further package, which approximates to an increment of about an extra 5 hours per week.  If the assistance you require starts to regularly exceed the very high package of care we may request that you transfer to one of the en-suite bedrooms in the home, where we can better meet your needs and keep you safe.  This is due to the layout of the home, and in order to keep the top floor as vibrant a community as possible, and where our staffing numbers will be limited.

Residential Care

Residential Care is for those who are not able to cope at home or would appreciate the social network, support, and activities that Park View can provide. As well as accommodation in an ensuite room or self-contained apartment, meals, laundry services, and assistance with personal care and medication can be provided as required or needed. Park View will provide a welcoming atmosphere in which residents enjoy activities, go on outings and make friends with other residents.

Dementia

Our philosophy at Park View is ‘Person first, dementia second’. For some people living with dementia, finding that their mental abilities are declining can be distressing, leaving them feeling vulnerable and in need of reassurance and support. Staff at Park View will involve the people closest to them - including carers, friends and family – to create a personalised holistic plan of support to help the person retain their sense of identity and feelings of self-worth.  

Park View is a safe, secure, warm and friendly environment, with staff who are trained in specialist approaches to focus on what people can do and promote independence. We recognise that each person has unique requirements and support them to live as full and active ‘normal’ life as possible.

Special features for residents with dementia include alarm systems to alert staff, specialist lighting and way finding, sensory themed and reminiscence areas with a varied menu of food and drinks available at all times of day and night.  

Nursing

Our deputy manager, who is also the Clinical Lead for the home, supervises our registered nurses who are fully qualified and have the specialist expertise required to care for residents' varying medical needs and requirements. 

Expert personal and clinical care is provided in comfortable, homely surroundings and tailored to individual needs. We provide compassionate personalised nursing care for people with specialist requirements including Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis or Motor Neurone Disease.   

Palliative and End-of-Life Care

At Park View we firmly believe that everyone deserves dignity and respect as they approach the end of their life and we provide sensitive and compassionate end-of-life care for people with an illness where recovery is not expected.

We understand how difficult and emotional these situations are, which is why we provide respectful pro-active care focusing on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, physical stress, and mental stress of their illness. Indivdualised care ensures the physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the person and their family are considered and met.   

Respite Care/Convalescence/Trial Stay

At Park View we can offer respite care which could give carers a break for a few days or a few weeks. We understand how difficult it can be for families or friends providing ongoing care and this offers your family or carers the chance to do daily chores, go on holiday or simply have a break.

We also provide convalescent, intermediate or re-ablement care to help you to recuperate after a hospital stay and to support you to be well enough to go back home.

Some people may come to stay at Park View home temporarily for a ‘trial’ period to decide whether they want to live here permanently and to begin to make themselves familiar with life in the home.

We also offer rehabilitation, which  may be provided in a care home
