about our home

Welcome to The Branksome Care Home

A real home has as much personality as the people who live there. That’s why we’ve made The Branksome Care Home a place you’d be proud of and happy to live in – just as you would your own home.

Excellently situated, The Branksome Care Home is nestled in the Derbyshire spa town of Buxton. We are centrally located near to all the area’s amenities, including the River Wye, shops, restaurants and Buxton Opera House. You’ll find our beautiful Tudor building just a short walk from Pavilion Gardens and St John’s Road.

A home to be proud of

Our home is set across two floors, and there are communal lounges and a dining room on the ground floor, as well as ample outdoor space, meaning peace and quiet is never far away.

We offer brighterkind care – a person-centred approach that is delivered through quality care, recreation and activities, and food and dining.

"They have done extremely well to keep residents COVID free. During lockdown they’ve regularly updated me and also made the effort to call me so that I can talk with my mother."

delicious appetising menus, as good to eat as they are good for you

Everyone was so welcoming of him and brilliant at keeping us up to date with how he was settling in, and am delighted to say he immediately felt comfortable in his surroundings, which was a great relief. He enjoys good food and praises the meals, where he is given a daily choice and second helpings if he can manage them!

Regulator Reports

We regret that in some parts of our service the home fell below the standards that CQC requires and that we expect. We have taken the findings from the inspection very seriously and have already implemented a comprehensive service improvement plan with additional support for the team. We have already seen the benefits of these new ways of working. The report did acknowledge that all the residents they spoke to are happy and enjoy living in the home with their preferences respected and followed, however we do reocgnise that there are areas identified where we need to improve.
