Welcome to Park View Care Centre, in Kent
Situated in a pleasant area, Park View Care Centre is purpose-built and carefully designed to support our residents to live happy, fulfilled and comfortable lives.
Our team cares for our residents with the same kindness and warmth shown to members of their own family. Working closely together, they provide residential dementia care, nursing care and end of life care.
Located over two floors, our home includes light and airy, open plan lounges/diners as well as spacious en-suite bedrooms, and a variety of communal spaces such as a bar, quiet room and hair salon.
Our landscaped gardens are wheelchair accessible and designed to be a welcoming place for people to relax on one of the patios complete with outdoor furniture, or to enjoy a spot of light gardening in the raised flower beds.
We also have the advantage of being located next door to Jelly Beans Day Nursery. The children visit our residents regularly and everyone benefits hugely from the intergenerational relationships they have formed.
Activities & events
Supporting our residents to enjoy every day living at Park View Care Centre is a key focus for our dedicated team.
By getting to know each person, we are able to tailor our activities and events to their likes and dislikes as well as activities they may like to try.
No two days are the same here and, alongside our usual daily hobby-based activities, we also like to host events which are a little out of the ordinary.
In addition to keeping fit with our chair-based exercises, art therapy, quizzes, movie afternoons, and our knit and natter club, we also take great pleasure in regularly welcoming nursery school children from our neighbouring day nursery, Jelly Beans, which is next door.
Both our residents and the children get so much joy from their weekly visits, as they spend time chatting and taking part in a variety of activities together.
As well as the little ones, we also welcome visiting entertainers, school pupils, and other local groups to our home to enjoy spending time with our residents who love getting dressed up for our themed days throughout the year — complete with themed menus and decorations!

Our team takes a considered approach to dementia-friendly activities and meaningful engagement — supporting our residents who live with dementia to still experience happiness, comfort and contentment.
With an in-depth knowledge of people’s life histories, we are able to encourage positive reminiscence and create a safe and supportive environment where people feel comfortable taking part in both familiar and new activities, trips and events.

Food & nutrition
We are proud of the high quality of our meals here at Park View that are carefully designed to be enjoyable whilst providing balanced nutrition to our residents.
They are lovingly cooked and prepared by our in-house catering team and follow the seasons.
Regularly rotating menus ensure we always have meals which cater to our residents’ likes and dislikes, including those who require modified or specialist diets.
To create a welcoming and pleasant atmosphere for our residents to enjoy their mealtimes, our tables are lovingly laid with crisp table linen, menus clearly showing what’s on offer and cutlery and dinnerware which supports their independence.
We will be able to give a cost to the level of care required once we have completed a pre-admission assessment.

My mother has advanced dementia and is totally bedridden. She has been a resident of Park View for nearly four years. The care given has been excellent. The staff are compassionate and caring. She is always clean, comfortable and safe.
