Description
Bupa Parkstone is a newly built care home, with all the benefits of a purpose built modern building. We provide rest home, hospital and Bupa Short Stay Care. The care home is located right next door to Parkstone Retirement Village, which opened in 2015.

Parkstone is located in Ilam, with plenty of garden areas and seating for family and residents to enjoy. We offer a large variety of activities 7 days per week, because we believe you should choose how you want to spend your day. There is a range of activities for you to get involved in if you choose to.

We love getting to know our residents and their families, who are welcome at any time. It is important we get to know you well, so we can deliver care that is right for you. You and your family are included in decisions about your care every step of the way.

You’re welcome to visit us any time to look around. If you have any questions or want to make an enquiry please contact Sarah Radburnd on 0800 60 80 99 or 027 273 2113.
