We are delighted to have been awarded the Gold Level in our recent revalidation of the Eden Alternative.

This was achieved through interviews with a selection of staff, residents and relatives, surveys, audits, and photo-based evidence.

The Validators summarised: “It was a pleasure to speak with the team, residents and relatives. There was a clear feeling amongst staff that the introduction of Eden several years ago had accounted for many significant changes to the person-centred nature of the care and support provided for residents in addition to improved wellbeing of both staff and residents.


The photographic evidence really captured the joy and engagement residents had in relation to activities and events that are put on at Parkwood House. Relatives told us that overall, they rated the level to which Parkwood House addressed the issues of loneliness, helplessness, and boredom as between 8 to 10 out of 10.


The staff team and manager all felt empowered and supported to make changes to support, maintain and improve the Eden philosophy.  There was an emphasis on building positive relationships with residents, and integrating Eden into the day-to-day care provision.”
