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.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

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.”
