After visiting my mother in Poynton I can clearly see that everyone really cares about all the residents. My mother has had trouble remembering her room when I asked her why " all the doors are white and look the same" one of the cares suggested we put a picture on the door so we put her dog on the front of the door, now mum knows her room or flat as she calls it. I would like to thank all the staff and manager who has taken a lot of interested in helping my mother get settled. The home is very clean the food seems to be good although mum did care for the fish in batter on the Fridays so now they give mum the fish in sauce, five star service! Many thanks to everyone for taking time to visit with my mother and chat with her. You are all so very kind! Thank you again


My mother lived at Parklands for 18 months before her recent death. The staff are excellent and cared for my mother excellently. The quality of care is excellent and shines through all their actions - this is the most important thing and always should be. The staff also extended the care to her family and we are very grateful for this. I really appreciate how all residents, including my Mum, were treated as individuals and respected. The whole staff team work exceptionally well together and do a great job. The food is good and prepared on the premises and individual dietary needs are taken into account appropriate. The social activities are good and all residents are encouraged to take part and supported.


Staff friendly and courteous, nothing was too much. There's a sense of real caring from the manager down to the lowest carer.


Over the last six months. Parklands is conveniently situated. Nicely furnished and allowing own furniture. Management were approachable and very pleasant. Staff were kind and caring and attentive seeing to the requirements of individuals. (Also laundry is taken care of) Dressing them with own styled clothes and advise them. Meals are ok. Medical arrangements with the local GP is very good. On occasions, I think staffing could be better they sometimes appear pushed! Overall the care was excellent wonderful staff at Parklands. Sad to move my mother on but she needs nursing care, it's a shame Parklands is only a care home and not nursing. I must also mention the maintenance man as he was absolutely amazing. He is certainly an asset to Parklands.


My aunt is treated with respect and dignity. She enjoys the food provided and speaks well of the care given. A variety of activities are provided, but she chooses to sit quietly and participates in very few. Fortunately, she has several visitors who help to improve the quality of her life. The staff are generally pleasant and supportive, providing information when required.


My mum has just spent 5 nights in Parklands. All the staff were lovely and went out of their way to make her feel at home. Nothing was too much trouble, they do a fantastic job and I give them praise for what they do. I was welcome to call in any time and stay as long as I wanted, trying to avoid meal times as they are a busy and social time for residents and staff. Her room was very clean and comfortable and there was daily activities, which she joined in with. It was lovely for me to have my mum so close and I hope she will be able to stay for future respite :)


My mother has been living at Parklands since October 2015. Her room is always clean and tidy as is the rest of the home. The staff have been very kind to her and made sure a doctor has been called when necessary.
