Park View Care is state of the art containing a number of low zero carbon systems to make the building energy efficient and kind to the environment, such as a ground source heat pump system that will provide under floor heating and hot water for the home as well as state of the art low energy lighting throughout. Special consideration has been given in the development of Park View to ensure that the building blends well with surrounding properties and architecture and is of benefit to the local community. The home is ideally placed in the centre of Gloucester in an area of urban regeneration adjacent to Gloucester Quays, is within walking distance of local amenities, and has good public transport links. Park View has a secure direct access from the home into Gloucester’s main park which is adjacent.
Built on 4 floors with facilities and services designed with the specific healthcare requirements of older people in mind, Park View can support people who still wish to remain independent whilst having peace of mind in a self contained apartment, to those who require nursing or specialist dementia care in a secure environment with dementia friendly design. With such a wide range of care provision it is our aim to be able to provide ‘a home for life’ for all of our residents living here.
On the ground floor of the home is a café and hairdressing salon which will be open to the public, then through into a private area there are bedrooms looking out over Gloucester Park.
Our Ethos upholds the desire to make a difference to the experiences of those who are both living and working at Park View by creating opportunities for lives which have meaning and purpose. As a socially and environmentally responsible home, our mission is ‘Creating tomorrow’s environments’; to create a welcoming community in which we support Older People and our Staff to flourish and thrive. We believe that a person’s individuality should not diminish with age but that all staff and residents should be valued and their lives enriched and fulfilled.
The Vision is for Park View become a community of those who live there at the centre, with staff, relatives and friends all having a sense of belonging and a vested interest in the life of the home.

New inspection ratings
The CQC are moving to a new inspection model and rate services according to how safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led they are, using four levels:
Outstanding – the service is performing exceptionally well.
Good - the service is performing well and meeting the CQC's expectations.
Requires improvement – the service isn't performing as well as it should and the CQC have told the service how it must improve.
Inadequate – the service is performing badly and the CQC have taken enforcement action against the provider of the service.
No rating/under appeal/rating suspended – there are some services which the CQC can't rate, while some might be under appeal from the provider. Suspended ratings are being reviewed by the CQC and will be published soon.
