Park House is situated in the city of Peterborough and surrounded by exceptionally well maintained gardens that are easily accessible by foot and by wheelchair. The home offers five lounges, each with different décor and character, a large dining room and an in-house hairdressing salon.
The staff at the home are dedicated to ensuring all of the residents’ wishes are met and that they generally feel well cared for. The home has a good reputation in the area for providing quality care. The care team is well established, many have worked at the home a long time and are very familiar to residents, which is reassuring for them.
Daily activities and entertainment are a core part of our quality care at Park House. We pride ourselves on offering a diverse, enriching range of weekly activities and entertainment allowing residents to continue to relish in their favourite hobbies and pastimes or to try out something new entirely.
We involve residents in the planning of our weekly activities timetables and offer one-to-one bespoke and tailored opportunities as requested. We’re also passionate about keeping our homes and residents at the heart of the local community, working closely with community groups, schools and other community connections to keep residents involved in local activities.
Some of our regular activities include:
- Special celebrations and themed events
- Word games
- Crafts and painting
- External musicians and entertainers
- Shopping trips
- Visits to the park opposite
Dining is an essential part of the care package we provide to our residents, not only from a general health and wellbeing perspective, but we believe residents should be able to enjoy eating what they want, when they want.
Residents get a choice of meals and there is lots of opportunity to suggest what they might like to eat. Food is discussed in an open way and residents can suggest menu ideas. The catering team talks with the residents and invites feedback on a regular basis.
Our chef fully assesses all dietary needs, including likes and dislikes, allergies. special diets, through to preferred portion sizes and mealtimes. The catering team prides itself on producing food of the highest quality, using local suppliers to create fresh, homemade dishes each day.
Park House is situated centrally in the city of Peterborough and can be easily accessed by road and by rail. The home not only overlooks the Old Peterborough Park but is within easy reach of the Cathedral and City. There are quite a few local pubs around the area, and at the end of the road is the historic St Paul’s Church.
The health and wellness of our residents is very important and we work closely in partnership with local health and wellness professionals to ensure every resident is able to lead a full and enriched life. We welcome visiting professionals such as GPs, chiropodists, opticians and can arrange visits to other professionals if and when it may be required.
Our visiting pod in the garden, with its two entrance points, protective Perspex screens, intercom system and a nurse call button, allows us to safely facilitate visits from friends and relatives when our infection control procedures prevent us from welcoming visitors into the home itself.
Arranged over two floors, our 49 bedrooms can be personalised to make them a real home-from-home, and residents are able to enjoy a selection of lounges, dining rooms and well-kept gardens for relaxing, socialising and entertaining.
All of our bedrooms are provided ready-furnished with the essentials for instant comfort, and we happily encourage our residents to bring their own treasured furnishings and belongings if they would like to do so.
Amongst our range of well-equipped areas and facilities, there’s always space for quiet contemplation, or for enjoying the company of kindred spirits, and for relishing in interests and pursuits.
The beautiful gardens, bordered by flower beds, offer an al fresco setting to enjoy anything from exercise to taking tea.
