Review of Buxton House

The staff are very friendly and helpful and always thinking of ways to encourage residents to join in with games (Bingo etc.) and physical exercises and raising money for trips out, organising coffee mornings, Summer fetes, Christmas fairs etc. Residents are encouraged to sit out in the sheltered patio area on warm days, I would recommend it. Not forgetting the cleaners too who work tirelessly to keep the home clean.

Review of Buxton House

I believe it would be beneficial to provide a secure wi-fi facility for residents and family. This would enable visitors to use their laptops/iPads/Kindle HDs etc when visiting to show family members emails/family photos on Facebook, and even make Skype calls to the family! I suggest this as I bring my laptop, and often want to show my mother family communications on Facebook.
