Lord Mayor drops in to Park View open day
Lord Mayor of Liverpool Roy Gladden had a look around, spoke to staff and people viewing their services and joked with residents throughout the day. Park View is one of 34 homes across England run by Kingsley Healthcare.
The new dementia unit will bring the total residents up to 56. Director of operations, Pauline Parker-Moore told the ECHO: "We open within the next couple of weeks, we've invited the community today so they can see what we’ve got to offer our residents.
"We’re training our care staff, our support workers as enhanced care home practitioners. They are not nurses, but can support the nurses. We have a very high level of trained people to deliver a very person centred care".
Park View offers 24 hour care for all residents, which comprises 14 on the ground floor, 21 on the middle floor for general nursing and the new unit will hold 21 residents with dementia. Residents get regular trips out, visits from local entertainers and their favourite meals are incorporated into the menus.
Care home manager, Neil Hooley said: "We show any prospective client around, then cover a very detailed assessment so we can anticipate if we can meet that person's needs. Everybody's care is individualised to suit their needs.
