Peaker Park Care Village in Market HarboroughPeaker Park Care Village in Market Harborough received this phenomenal review on carehome.co.uk! A massive well done to the incredible staff team there ?? "I cannot rate Peaker Park highly enough. Not only is it spotlessly clean with modern rooms and ensuite facilities but the environment is calm and caring. My father settled in very quickly and was very happy there. They offer a variety of stimulating activities from making gingerbread houses and bird feeders to bingo, puzzles and games. During the pandemic, I was constantly kept up to date with photos and news about my dad. When my dad celebrated his 100th birthday, the team arranged a party for his unit and ordered a beautiful cake and decorated the dining room with banners and balloons. The empathy and care the team gave my father in his final days were absolutely amazing and the stories they told me about him made me realise they truly knew him and cared about him.

All of us here at Riversway are loving this sunny weather.
As it’s been so nice outside today we all decided it would be a brilliant idea to have a bit of lunch in the garden for a change. We had a bit of music on in the background and had lots of laughs and chats with each other. We are looking forward to having lunch in the garden again sometime.
