Review of The Branksome Care Home on Monday 7 October 2013 by C.Turner (Family of resident (recently passed away))

I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at The Branksome Care Home in Buxton for providing an excellent level of care to my grandfather in the final stages of his life journey. He enjoyed his time there and the staff made all our family welcome on every visit. The home operates on a basis when family are welcome at all times and there is no need to ring in advance or to be granted access. My grandfather was moved from a different home as his care needs changed and for him this move was highly beneficial and the family finally felt at ease knowing he was receiving such excellent care and interaction. Thank you for your help.

Review of The Branksome Care Home on Thursday 11 July 2013 by Audrey Barron (Sister of resident)

After the disaster of my brothers care (so called) at a home in Chapel-en-le-frith. I thank god for the care he now gets at The Branksome. The staff make us feel he is safe and well looked after and we think he is much happier. Sadly I have not been able to visit for a while due to illness but get regular reports from his son.
