Welcome to Park House Care Home
You'll find Park House Care Home in the town centre of Wellingborough, Northamptonshire. Here our registered nurses and dedicated care assistants provide excellent 24-hour care to suit a range of needs - from nursing and palliative care to respite and post-operative care.
Ours is a well equipped, comfortable home. Residents enjoy the fresh air in the courtyard or furnished patio, whether it's helping out with the plants or taking afternoon tea.
Inside, there are bright, spacious lounges and dining rooms. All bedrooms are singles with en-suites, TVs, telephone points, and great safety systems. We love residents to personalise these spaces to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Park House Care Home
Our dedicated activities coordinator ensures each person living here has something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward to, and we encourage residents to follow their individual hobbies and interests.
Park House's wide range of group pastimes, outings and diversions includes cooking sessions, pamper days, quizzes, bingo, seasonal craft days, weekly church services, and trips to the shops.
We enjoy visits from the Phoenix Children's Foundation with their Shetland ponies; and residents love the owl displays from Owls to Behold. The local mobile library comes by weekly. We're also entertained by various visiting performers, and particularly enjoy dance displays and concerts given by local school children.
Residents enjoy a barbecue and glass of Pimm's with their friends and family at our annual summer fair, and a hot toddy at our Bonfire Night party.
Our menus are carefully prepared by our chef to meet any individual's special dietary needs, and to ensure everyone enjoys flavoursome, nutritionally balanced meals.
My mum has received exemplary care from the nursing staff and assistants. It is obvious they really care how she feels. In four years of being bedridden, she has never had any bedsores, which for a 93 year old lady is due to good nursing. When we chose the home it seemed the best of 12 we looked at, and it has proved to be an excellent choice. They all enjoy their work there and are always cheerful.
Park House is a very good care home. The staff are caring and helpful.
The whole place is like family, there is a lot of company here, staff treat me as an individual and respect what I want to do. I enjoy the activities here and join in whenever I can. They give me my dignity and make sure I have the things I need.
I find the home, friendly, clean, staff are pleasant and aware of what my needs are, I feel at home here.
My sister has been at Park House for approximately 3 years after having a massive stroke which left her paralysed, doubly incontinent and without speech. She needs 24 hour care and is bed ridden. In that time she has been reasonable "healthy" apart from an abscess. She has never has a pressure sore and is kept very clean. The staff are kind and caring and very friendly to visitors. There are lots of social activities but my sister's condition does not allow her to join in.
Everything seems alright. The staff look after me well, I am happy here, I like to laugh with them.

People embark on a career path because it’s something they love, they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons Health Care, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Programme.
On Thursday 20th December 2017, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 47 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Managing Director for Four Seasons in the North West of England, said: “Here at Four Seasons Health Care we take great pride in our CHAP Programme, and everyone who undertakes the intense 12 week course. I want to congratulate all of the CHAPs for graduating; your hard work and dedication have paid off. These are the first CHAPs in my area, and I’m absolutely delighted at all of your achievements.
“The Programme is innovative and helps the CHAPs to provide invaluable support to the nurses in the homes.
“All the CHAPs have come through this long journey and I want to thank you for your commitment. I also want to thank the Nurse mentors who have guided and supported the CHAPs every step of the way. Well done everyone!”
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefits the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

Everyone enjoys doing activities that are fun. At Four Seasons we work hard to ensure we provide meaningful activities that residents can enjoy on a regular basis.
At Park House Care Home in Northants, Personal Activities Leader Gill has been spending one on one time with residents, making a difference to their everyday lives.
Home Manager, Jayne Lack, explains: “Gill has been doing all she can to provide special experiences of care for our residents. She’s spent time with a lady, who is predominantly bed bound, and helped her make a Valentine’s picture for he husband. She helped another resident create her favourite peppermint creams and played musical bingo with them. These activities don’t sound like much, but if you could see the impact it had had on these two residents you couldn’t help but smile.”
