We are both pleased with all the aspects of Foxton Court but in particular the caring attitude of all the staff. Our aunt has had a really full life and took it very hard having to give up her home and independence following a fall, she has hearing problems and is visually impaired and yet the staff still manage to involve her in as many activities as possible. Nothing is a problem from arranging hospital appointments and keeping us in touch with all that is going on she is now very much at home there. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful patient, caring staff and managers.

Foxton Court provides a consistently high standard of care that we are very pleased to have found for my mother whilst we have not visited any other homes with which to compare, its what we have heard from other people, convinces us that we have made an excellent choice. The opportunity for my mother to have brought some of her own furniture has made her room feel like her home. The quality of the care staff is particularly high and the Helen McArdle management systems ensure that standards are maintained.
