Avante Care & Supports dementia care home, Parkview in Bexleyheath, has recently completed its refurbishment programme which has improved areas of the 69 bedded home to be of the same high standard as the rest of the home. The programme started back in October 2015 and has included improving the entrance and reception area, corridors and the day care centre.

The revamped reception area is a welcome addition to the home and also a pleasant quiet area for families and residents to enjoy. The area is full of light and bright colours and boasts a welcoming feel as soon as one walks through the homes doors. There is also a new entry phone coded system at the home allowing families better entry access into the home.

Parkview is a well-established dementia are home in the area and greatly supported by the local Bexley community. The care home offers a variety of lounges and dining areas over two floors with tastefully decorated rooms and bright and cheerful furnishings. Many of the single rooms at Parkview benefit from en-suite facilities all have been individually decorated to provide comfort and relaxation.

The refurbishment programme included freshening up the corridors and bedroom doors with bright colours bringing all areas of the home in line to give a fresh and bright environment for residents to live. A request from the residents and staff at the home were to include renovating the gardens to encourage more activity and interaction with some of the green fingered residents at the home.

Jo Thompson, Activity Coordinator said, ‘We have some keen gardeners at Parkview so it has been amazing to watch the gardens transform and to also see some of our not so green fingered gardeners get involved. We have strawberry plants, a new pergola and raised planters. The residents have been taking full advantage of every opportunity to be out in the gardens come rain or shine!’
