About Park View

Park View Care Home has been purpose built within the grounds of the former Municipal Buildings, Canterbury Street complementing Charing House; it has been tastefully built as a Care Home to an extremely high specification. The Home stands in its own grounds and has the added benefit of being adjacent to Gillingham Park. There is a good bus service with a bus stop immediately outside the Home, less than a mile away is the train station and a variety of shops just 5 minutes walk away.

We offer all our clients 3 meals a day, which are breakfast, lunch and high tea, as well as snacks and refreshments throughout the day. We offer a variety of dishes to choose from our menu each day for each meal. Park View has a seasonal menu, which works on a 4 weekly cycle. All our food is freshly brought in, homemade and nutritionally balanced, which we feel is very important. Our menu's may vary slightly depending on the client's needs/likes. Please feel free to take a look at our Winter Menu.

There is a passenger carrying lift to all floors in both buildings for those unable to manage stairs. The Home has been designed and furnished to ensure wheelchair access in all rooms, and most bathrooms contain either a static bath or a shower tray and are large enough to accommodate lifting aids. The Home has a variety of specialist equipment required to care for our clients. All rooms are fitted with a nurse call system and pressure mats in some rooms which are linked to the call system, a telephone and aerial point, and a suite of furniture one of which has a lockable facility should the client wish to maintain safe keeping for personal effects.

We believe that coming into a care home should be as smooth as possible and our residents made to feel that they have a home from home experience. Where practicable and safe, we will consider whether or not residents can bring in their own pets from home but this would be at the discretion of the General Manager and would involve a risk assessment having to be completed.

Park View Suites

Park View Suite’s is a separate building, but still linked to Park View, which is also on the grounds of the former Municipal Building. Park View Suite’s contains 8 Bedsits, 4 out of the 8 apartments are double rooms for couples or those wishing to share (E.g. with a partner or sibling) and the other 4 are large single rooms. Park View Suite’s has its own communal kitchenette/Dining area where clients may choose to eat and a communal lounge where clients may choose to relax.
