What Our Customers Say

  • Anon

    Meals are as good as home cooked with an option every day at lunchtime. Meals are brought up to my room and are always hot with very good quantity and quality. The way the meals are served is done very nicely and the dining room is a pleasant place to eat.

  • Anon

    I\'ve settled in very quickly and staff make me feel very secure. It\'s a great feeling of relief for me to be here. I\'ve never seen the staff vexed by anything; they are so skilled and caring. I am very satisfied; there is nothing they could do better.

  • Anon

    The staff are all very nice and helpful and there is nothing I would change. I\'m quite independent but starting to slow down now. Staff, including the manager, are always available and any problems are sorted out.I\'ve made some nice friends here. I knew the home before I came in so the choice was easy as I was very impressed

  • Tina Heathcote

    Dad has been in The Branksome for sixteen months now, I thought it was time that we recorded how very pleased we all are with the way that the staff care for our father. Dad never ceases to say how kind everyone is to him; the warmth and humour of all your staff, coupled with absolute professionalism, makes The Branksome an extraordinarily special place.For dad’s family, too, the compassion and sensitivity shown to us has been of great comfort and the respect shown to dad gives us confidence that his needs are always effectively prioritised.

What Our Staff Say


I have worked in other care homes in the town but The Branksome is the only one where the focus is clearly on looking after the residents rather than making money. All the staff and management have the same approach which makes for a really good working environment. I always call the Branksome Gods resting place because the residents are pampered, well cared for, fed well and well dressed ’

Branksome Care HomeBuxton, Derbyshire

At The Branksome there is always a trained nurse on duty, 24 hours a day, with an appropriate number of care staff to assist. The home’s staff are selected for their qualities of reliability, integrity, skill, friendliness and professionalism.

The Branksome Care Home is now managed by Four Seasons Health Care, who is one of the largest group in the UK predominantly devoted to care of the elderly. The Branksome Care Home along with Four Seasons Health Care is committed to providing the highest possible standards of care.

Set in the old spa town of Buxton in the glorious peak district The Branksome is situated close to all local amenities. A Tudor style house set in its own gardens, it can accommodate 34 residents requiring residential and nursing care.

All residents have their own room some with en-suite facilities, and are able to meet and socialise in one of the three large lounges, each with its own charming character with many of the original features such as large chandeliers and impressive fireplaces.

Lifestyle and Activities

At The Branksome the staff endeavour to create a warm atmosphere with the focus being on home life, the emphasis being to create an environment that all our residents find comfortable and relaxing. The Branksome has just completed a major refurbishment and our residents are delighted with the results.

Our Activities Organiser helps in meeting the social care needs of our residents and organises activities such as shopping trips and day trips to the vast Derbyshire countryside scenery. We are fortunate enough to have our own minibus which has been adapted to take wheelchairs.

Catering is of a high standard and our team of chefs plan the daily menus with the emphasis being on individual choice.
