"I think all the staff do a great job, they have a lot of patience. I admire them and think they are marvelous" - that’s what a relative told us in a recent survey. That’s a great thing to hear about the team at Parkside, a 20 bed home which offers care to young adults with complex mental health needs including Huntington’s disease and neurological disorders.
Would you like to be part of the team that such praise from relatives of service users? If the answer is a resounding yes, then maybe you should consider moving to Parkside.
