About Park View Care Home

Park View Care Home in Medway 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 and less than a mile away is the train station, with a variety of shops just a 5-minute walk away.

Care

We believe that coming into a care home should be as smooth a transition as possible and we aim to provide our residents with a home-from-home experience. With this aim in mind, we encourage residents to bring in items to personalise their rooms whether is be pictures or furniture and we would consider whether or not residents can bring in their pets from home on a case-by-case basis (at the discretion of the manager who will complete a risk assessment for each case). Our care team are focused on providing the highest standard of care possible and treating residents with the utmost respect at all times. We try to help each resident remain as independent as possible, whilst ensuring they are never put at any risk.

Staff

Every carer on our team has undergone comprehensive training in first aid, hygiene and infection control, moving & handling, fire awareness and dementia, as well as covering several other training courses. The extensive training that each member of staff receives is designed to equip them with the skills they need to look after all of our residents at Park View Care Home in Medway.

Facilities

There is a passenger lift to all floors in both buildings, for those who are unable to manage stairs, and all rooms are wheelchair accessible. Most of the bathrooms have a static bath or shower tray, and plenty of room for lifting aids if required. Every room has a nurse call system fitted, and many rooms also have pressure mats that are linked to the nurse call system. Additionally, all rooms have a TV aerial point, along with a suite of furniture that includes a lockable unit where valuables can be stored. The home also benefits from having a lovely outdoor garden area, with raised flower beds should residents with to plant.

Food & Drink

Our residents are served 3 meals a day, along with a range of snacks and drinks outside of normal mealtimes. We operate a seasonal menu on a 4-week cycle, which is designed to provide residents with a choice of dishes at each meal, all of which are homemade and freshly prepared. The menu is designed to provide residents with a nutritionally-balanced diet that promotes physical well-being. Alternative dishes may be offered to residents with special dietary requirementsOur menu's may vary slightly depending on the client's needs/likes. Please feel free to take a look at our Summer Menu.

Park View Suites

Park View Suites is a separate building, but still linked to Park View, which is also on the grounds of the former Municipal Building. Park View Suites contains 8 Bedsits: 4 out of the 8 apartments are double rooms for couples or those wishing to share and the other 4 are large single rooms. It has its own communal kitchenette/dining area where clients may choose to eat and a communal lounge for relaxation and socialising purposes.

By Deirdre P (Daughter of Resident) 10/05/2019, Park View Care Home in Medway

My mother has been a resident in this care home for 6 years and I have seen much improvement especially in the last two years. She is a dementia patient and as a result not always easy to manage. The staff are all lovely and I can see they like and respect her and give her the care that she needs. The food is very well cooked and very enticing although I have not yet taken up the offer to eat with my mother. She is always clean, well presented and dressed in her own clothes. Well done Park View and all your staff.

I would highly recommend this home. Dad wasn't being cared for properly at his old home. We moved him here in June 2018 and he is so much happier, can see the difference in him. Always clean clothes, always cleaned. Hair cut and the staff are so lovely and friendly, always ring if a problem or need to ask questions. I am happy Dad is in this home and is so happy here loved by all the staff. I feel I can trust them no matter what.
