Parkview House is located in a residential area of Edmonton, London, positioned between Jubilee Park and St Edmund’s Catholic Primary School.
On the doorstep of a picturesque park with lots of green spaces, the care home is only a 10-minute walk from Edmonton Green train station. Tucked away from the busyness of London, we are still really easy to get to for our residents’ loved ones when they visit.
The care home features a beautiful garden and allotment area, with sensory planting and raised flower beds. The outdoor space is a haven for our keen gardening enthusiasts. Enabling our residents to continue a pastime they adore is so important for their wellbeing and happiness. The gardens also feature pockets of seating areas, where residents relax during the summer months. It's a really calm place to be in the heart of London.
Elsewhere in the home, the therapy room is somewhere residents can enjoy hairdressing and beauty treatments. A professional hairdresser uses the room once a week for appointments with the residents. The team also uses the space to do one-to-one, person centred activities with the residents that help them to relax and unwind. They often like to have a hand massage or a manicure, while relaxing music is played in the background.
There is always so much to do in the home and every day is different. One day you can find us stretching in our regular music to movement classes. While the next, we are taking it in turns to fuss over a gorgeous therapy dog or even rabbit during animal handling sessions. We even enjoy our very own concerts and performances, with musicians visiting from far and wide.
Best Activities Co-Ordinator for People Living with Dementia
As you can see we take our care home activities very seriously here at Parkview House. Our loved ones often share how much they enjoy seeing their mum or dad so engaged and fulfilled. So, when our activities co-ordinator was nominated for a national care award, everyone was thrilled for her.
Maria Swallow, who has worked with us for just over three years at the time of the nomination, was shortlisted for the prestigious National Dementia Care Awards. She made it all the way to the finals in the Best Activities Co-ordinator for People Living with Dementia category. Unfortunately, Maria missed out at the final hurdle but within her nomination she was described as someone who lights up any room, never without a smile and always going above and beyond.
What high praise indeed and we couldn't agree more. In fact going above and beyond is embedded into the culture of Parkview House. Our staff genuinely care for residents as if they were members of their own family. And that's what makes us truly special.
