Parklands homes offer a range of nursing, personal and palliative care services, either permanently, for holiday breaks, short periods of respite care or to convalesce after a hospital stay. Specialist care is available for those with physical or mental disabilities.
Where possible, residents can retain the services of their own GP. However if you reside outwith a reasonable geographic area, then a new GP will be allocated. An appointment with your GP can be booked usually within 24 hours.
We pride ourselves in sourcing as much fresh local produce as possible. Mealtimes are unhurried and relaxed with residents given plenty of time to eat and enjoy their food. Mealtimes represent an important social occasion and we endeavour to make them as enjoyable as possible. Residents can either have their meal in the dining room or in their own room and in their own time. Tea, coffee and drinks are served regularly throughout the day with a selection of home bakes. Menus are prepared weekly by our head cook with several choices available daily. All meals have been analysed for their nutritional content by a senior dietician from the NHS.
Residents enjoy a full and active social calendar, with events to suit all interests. A personal carer is always on hand and a mini bus is provided for days out and shopping trips. Specially invited speakers and musicians often provide entertainment for residents.
We operate a professional laundry service on a 24hr rotation so that anything requiring to be washed will be available, washed and ironed the next day. Dry Cleaning is available on request and is charged directly to the client.
Newspapers and magazines are available and regular visits are made from the local library.
A local hairdresser visits weekly and appointments can be made to see the dentist, chiropodist or optician.
A weekly service is held in most homes and the local ministers operate on a rota basis. If you would like to keep your own minister every effort will be made for him or her to visit as often as you like. Arrangements can also be made for you to continue to attend your own church, if possible.
