Welcome to Parkwood House
Parkwood House is our Plymouth based care home, situated in a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking Devonport Park.
Rated Outstanding by the Care Quality Commission, Parkwood House also holds the Certificate of Registration from the Eden Alternative UK & Ireland. This recognises that the residents and the team at Parkwood House are well established on the Eden Alternative journey and have fulfilled the requirements for inclusion in the Eden Alternative philosophy, developing strategies to address potential problems of loneliness, helplessness and boredom.
At the Celebrating Excellence in Care Awards 2019, the Team at Parkwood House won the Commitment to Workforce development, Manager of the Year and Innovation in Technology awards.
Everything you need
Parkwood is just a short stroll from the centre of Stoke Village, with its corner shops, cafes, and other amenities.
The home offers an insightful focus on dementia, together with a high standard of general care and rehabilitation.
Built with love
Parkwood has plenty of communal living areas, along with extensive amenities including a cinema, a fully fitted hairdressing salon and a jacuzzi bath.
A sheltered courtyard garden is easily accessible where meals can be enjoyed soaking up the sun.
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.”
