About the service:

The Park Residential & Nursing Home is a ‘care home’. People in care homes receive accommodation and nursing or personal care as a single package under one contractual agreement. CQC regulates both the premises and the care provided, and both were looked at during this inspection.

The Park Residential & Nursing Home accommodates up to 41 people in a purpose built building. At the time of the inspection there were 36 people in residence.

¿ We found improvements had been made following the previous inspection of the service by the Care Quality Commission.

¿ We found The Park Residential and Nursing Home met the characteristics of a ‘Good’ service.

¿ People and family members were consistent in their praise for the service provided. A family member told us, “I would recommend it here, I have done. I feel positive about the place and have peace of mind, I have faith in their judgement and the care they give. If I have any concerns I can raise them, and I go to the appropriate people and I know they will listen.”

¿ People’s needs were regularly reviewed with their involvement or that of a family member and changes were acted upon, which included referrals being made to the relevant health care professional. The service had strong links with a local surgery who provided scheduled and regular visits by a health care professional, to support people’s health and welfare.

¿ People spoke positively about the meals provided, all meals and foods were homemade and met people’s dietary requirements. Food and drinks were in plentiful supply, with snacks and drinks being served throughout the day. Mealtimes were an important social event.
