Welcome to Park House Care Home
You'll find Park House Care Home in Birkenhead, Wirral, just across from Birkenhead Park.
Here our team of registered nurses and well trained, dedicated care assistants provides excellent quality 24-hour care. We offer different levels of care to suit a range of needs, from nursing and palliative care to shorter-term, respite and post-operative care, to dementia care.
Our well equipped, comfortable care home has great transport links. Outside, we have large, mature landscaped gardens with a furnished patio. Residents enjoy the fresh air in these delightful areas, whether it's helping out with the plants and herbs, or experiencing the sights, sounds and smells of our sensory garden.
Inside, there are bright, spacious lounges. All bedrooms have great safety systems and most have en-suites and lovely garden views. We love residents to personalise their rooms, and choose their own colour schemes, to make them more familiar and homely.
Life at Park House Care Home
Our dedicated activity coordinators ensure each person living here has something stimulating and enjoyable to look forward. They encourage individual hobbies and interests, and also make sure there are plenty of group activities.
Park House's varied and flexible programme includes handicrafts, gardening, quizzes, bingo, concerts and trips to local places of interest - including nearby Birkenhead Park.
We also celebrate at least one special seasonal event a month, such as Burns Night, Mother's Day and Wimbledon.
Our nutritionally balanced menus are carefully prepared by our chef, who won a silver award in the Four Seasons Health Care Chef of the Year competition.
My father was admitted with vascular dementia in 2014, at one time he was prescribed morphine due to the pain he was in. He reacted badly causing diarrhoea. The care staff cleaned him and his room up, treating him with great respect and dignity. Any wishes my mum has had, the nurses and staff have followed. My mum has a great relationship with the staff, which has given me peace of mind and the family also. They cannot do enough to help and I am so grateful to the home for having such dedicated, caring and compassionate nurses and staff. My father has now put on weight and is looking good. Thank you so much.
My Mum has Alzheimer's. The staff on the Conway unit have been so.. well just brilliant frankly I don't know what we would do without their support. They are so good with Mum who can be a handful. They are patient professional and above all kind. Always have time to sit and chat with her nothing is too much trouble for them. I can't praise them enough and would recommend Park House to any family for their Mum or Dad.
Park House is just the place for residents with dementia. All the staff are trained to deal with dementia. The residents treated with respect and dignity. There is plenty of corridors for the wanderers. Each corridor is themed. One is music (with piano and instruments) another is olden days with old furniture and books, another is holidays and another for ladies, dresses and handbags etc. Excellent.

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.

Many people start their career path doing something they love, and they yearn to develop, grow and blossom in their profession.
Here at Four Seasons, Care Assistants can up-skill themselves on the organisations Care Home Assistant Practitioners (CHAPs) programme.
On Tuesday 20th December 2016, a graduation ceremony was held at Shawcross Social Club in Wigan, celebrating the achievements of 41 newly qualified CHAPs.
Rachael Junge, Four Seasons Northwest Managing Director said: “Everyone is really proud of every single CHAP and nurse who mentored them through the programme. We’re often really busy, and forget to recognise the hard work people put in, but this graduation ceremony is our way to reward and recognise you all. The journey is a long one; it takes a lot of dedication to complete. You can all wear your uniform with pride, and know that we’re all extremely proud of you. Well done everyone and congratulations once again.”
Mike O’Reilly, Risk Management Director for Four Seasons Health Care, said: “It’s a real privilege for me to attend ceremonies like this. The CHAPs programme is very innovative, and it really does make a difference to our residents’ lives as it provides continuity for them. I want to echo Rachael’s statement of congratulations to everyone who graduated and those who supported them.”
A total of 41 CHAPs graduated from the programme and will be working in 16 homes across the Northwest. The homes benefitting from the CHAPs skills are:
- Ashcroft Care Home in Chesterfield
- Bamford Grange Care Home in Stockport
- Bebington Care Home in the Wirral
- Holbeche House Care Home in Kingswinford
- Laburnum Court Care Home in Salford
- Meadowbrook Care Home in Oswestry
- Morcambe Bay Care Home in Morcambe
- Park House Care Home in the Wirral
- Preston Glades Care Home in Preston
- Riverside Court Care Home in Maryport
- St Catherine’s Care Home in Bolton
- The Gables Care Home in Oldbury
- The Heights Care Home in Chesterfield
- Victoria Care Home in St Helens
The newly qualified CHAPs are now able to provide some general nursing duties such as medication rounds. This benefit’s the home as it enables the nurse to deal with more complex issues.

On Saturday 18th June two Four Seasons care homes worked together to host a spectacular summer fair.
The event saw a number of games including; hook a duck, beat the goalie, a raffle and tombola, plus a bouncy castle for the children and the chance to sponge the Home Managers of both homes.
Rebecca Ashton, Home Manger for Park House, said: “Everyone had a great day, and even the weather stayed dry which was a bonus. It was great to see the local community getting involved and rallying behind the two local care homes. The residents and their families really enjoyed it to. It was nice to hear the young children laughing and joking and watching all of our proud and happy residents.”
As well as games and stalls, visitors were also treated to the usual food and drink and musical entertainment from a local entertainer.
Simon Shaw, Home Manager for Grove House, said: “The event was a great success. We managed to raise over £878 for the two homes. The money will go towards providing special resident experiences for those in our care. We also received a special surprise on the Saturday as we were informed we had been selected by the local Asda store to take part in their green token scheme, which means we could be awarded and extra £500. Thank you to everyone for making the day a success, and raising so much money for our residents.”
