Residential Care Home in Ipswich

Park View has a qualified activities coordinator who works with every resident to develop a programme of activities designed to meet the spiritual, physical and social needs of each individual. Underpinning this approach is the creation of a ‘Life Story’ record for each resident. ‘Life Stories’ were initially devised for residents living with dementia, to create a record of the individual’s life, working with the resident and family and loved ones. However, they have proven such a useful resource for understanding and engagement that they are now being rolled out to all residents who wish to take part.

In addition to the traditional occasions known and loved by all, Park View regularly holds special weeks in all seasons, where residents can take part in themed events and staff and residents can raise money for charities.

These occasions provide a wonderful opportunity to build upon the community spirit within homes and make a difference for some very worthy causes.
