Welcome to Flower Park Care Home

You'll find Flower Park in the village of Denaby Main, outside Doncaster, South Yorkshire.

Here our dedicated team provides quality care to people who are frail and elderly, and people with dementia, in two dedicated suites. We have an open-door policy, and always welcome visits and input from the friends and family of those living here.

Our welcoming, comfortable, purpose-built home has beautiful, well maintained gardens.

Inside, it's equally spruce, and there are views over the landscaped park next door.

Life at Flower Park Care Home

A carer and a resident

I would certainly recommend this friendly, accommodating, 'person-centred' care home. It was with a heavy heart that our family made the heartwrenching decision to place our Dad in a care home, particularly given that he would need an EMI placement, which ultimately meant that he would be placed in a setting whereby the residents would be very ill, very challenging and very high maintenence in terms of behaviours, physical, emotional and mental health needs. Initially, I have to hold my hand up and admit, we were all, as an over protective concerned family, extremely reluctant to place our beloved Dad, who had been through so much already, in a place such as this, having seen first hand just how ill these EMI residents are and seemingly how few staff were employed on a general basis, to manage all these severely mentally and physically ill residents all of which had immensely complex needs!

That said, they do manage! In fact they do far more than just 'manage'! They excel in their specialised roles! From cleaner, to cook, from care assistant to nurse, they treat each individual resident as if they were their own family member. My family and I visit Dad daily and without exception, we see the staff upstairs in the EMI unit work tirelessly and empathically, in caring for their residents, from the moment they start their shift til the time they finish and at all times are cheerfully laughing, joking and caring for their residents. And this can be by no means an easy task!! They do care for some extremely challenging behaviours and I admire each one of them. They show genuine care and compassion and a remarkable amount of patience, not only towards accommodating residents,but also well intentioned, oft interfering families like ourselves, of whom each with our particular whims, preferences or concerns, and yet, never a disgruntled, begrudging look comes our way, despite the fact they are always so clearly very busy attending to their residents! What I personally find comforting and refreshing is that resident and family member alike is always welcomed with a smile, a knowing look and above all, honesty, mutual understanding and respect.

The genuinely caring, cheerful, hard working staff are without doubt, the home's greatest asset and should be applauded and celebrated as such. My family and I admire them all immensely for the job they do and the way in which they do it as we know only too well that 'caring' for an ill elderly relative can sometimes be seen as a thankless job, but deep down, each of those residents do appreciate and benefit from their care and support.

The meals are delicious and nutritious and they dish up some lovely traditional deserts, which go down a treat!

There is a lovely little park you can take your family member along to, just outside of the home, and it's lovely to enjoy that much needed 'one to one' quality time with your loved one and get some fresh air. My Dad particularly likes watching the mischievous dogs racing off from their owners!

The home is easily accessible by car or public transport (The Barnsley to Doncaster bus stops at many points from Barnsley, Wombwell, Wath, Mexnorough, Conisborough, Balby, etc up to Doncaster)

My Dad's wellbeing and dignity has now thankfully been restored at Flower Park, thanks to each member of staff and their down to earth common sense approach to caring. He, along with all our family, had endured such an overwhelmingly traumatic journey prior to coming to Flower park and we had truly given up on him having the opportunity, moreover capacity, to enjoy living out his days in relative comfort and dignity, in a place that quite frankly 'allows' him to be himself, without resorting to a chemical solution, in a safe nurturing environment.

For this, our family will always be indebted!

My husband was discharged from hospital on 8/1/16 and admitted to Flower Park Nursing Home on an end of life care plan. He was made welcome from the start and continues to be made welcome. He is still struggling to be independent and has been met with a lot of patience. I have also been treated with kindness and respect.

Sheila Skitt, Wife of Resident/Service User at Flower Park Care Home

I find all the carers and nurses work really well and most of the time are under staffed. They are kept clean and fed really well. My partner has been in the home for two years, and is looked after well and seems to like it. The cleaners keep the home clean.

Carole Cooper, Partner of Resident/Service User at Flower Park Care Home

Very happy with the care provided to my wife. All the staff at Flower Park are great!

Harry Burfield, Husband of Resident/Service User at Flower Park Care Home

My brother has been in The Flower Park care home, for eight months, in which time the staff have been very good with him. He was very difficult especially at first when he was abusive. They had so much patience with him, and now he is much better and actually seems to enjoy their company and he even laughs again. He is a different person now, and it's all thanks to the wonderful staff. I cannot thank them enough. I can say it is always a pleasure to visit the home as they try to give each person enjoyment.

Carol Cousins, Managing Director for Four Seasons Northern Ireland, said: “Everyone at Four Seasons wants to congratulate Lorraine on her success. She is an outstanding example in this field and her award is very well deserved.”

Lorraine qualified as a registered mental health nurse in 1998, and now leads Four Seasons diverse mental health services. She is an advocate for ensuring people who have mental health issues have a voice and can make decisions enabling their independence.

Carol Cousins added: “Lorraine beat the competition in this category because of her continued hard work and dedication in this field.

Flower-Park-Tour-de-Yorkshire-1

11 May 2016

Residents and some of the team from Flower Park Care Home in Doncaster got on their bikes, as they went and watched a stage of the Tour de Yorkshire.

The residents and the team joined the throng of people who had all gathered in Conisborough to watch the cyclists.

Amanda Searle, Home Manager, said: “Everyone had a lovely day and cheered as the cyclists rode past. Watching the Tour de Yorkshire isn’t something the residents do every day. It’s a story they definitely shared with their families when they next came to visit.

“One of our residents, Colin is a retired Police Officer. Whilst he was out he spoke to one of the local bobbies on the beat, regaling them with stories of what it was like back in his day. Colin’s day was made when the officer posed for a photo with him.”

The trip was organised by Personal Activities Leader (PAL) Angela Cooper, who was unsuspectedly ambushed by BBC Radio Sheffield.

Amanda Searle added: “Angela worked hard to ensure this day ran smoothly for the residents. She acted like the ultimate professional when she was interviewed by Radio Sheffield. She showed no sign of nerves and did herself and Flower Park proud. Well done Angela, and sorry for trying to make you laugh on the radio.”
