My father in law was admitted to the home due to his deteriorating health, and through the three weeks he was there, he was always treated with respect and dignity. Our visits were always welcomed, regardless of time of day, and by all the staff who were supportive and helpful at all times. Their help and support being very much appreciated, through the difficult times to the eventual passing of my father in law.

I was very impressed with the quality of care delivered. Also very impressed with the meal preparation. My Father-in-law always enjoyed his food right up to when he died. Staff were always very courteous and friendly. The Matron (Breda) was extremely helpful and very supportive when my Father-in-law died. R.I.P. Any person asking me if I could recommend a nursing home I always recommend Elm House. I felt very lucky to have found such a good home. My Father-in-law was bed bound so did not participate in the activities available.

Elm House

Elm house is a relatively small nursing home in a victorian building. This building has narrow corridors, which connect excellent facilities and large rooms. The conservatory is lovely to sit in and socialise in. Regular singers/entertainers are invited in for residents. There is also a separate activities room looking out on an accessible garden (residents ducks ass interest) The rooms are ensuite and well cared for/cleaned to a high standard. The staff are incredible and constantly go the extra mile to help residents and their visitors/family. The matron Brenda and staff are very caring about the residents and good communication to family members. The chef is excellent and prepares great food. The activities co-ordinator Vincent is also excellent and communicates well with family. We enjoy seeing his updates on the website. We are very happy with the care homes family atmosphere and the way they deal with our relative. I would highly recommend an excellent service.

Anxious about sending a loved one into care. A difficult decision. I am certain now that I made the right choice. There may be nicer decor in some of the so called other luxury homes but the standard of care in this home is superb.

From my first contact with Elm House I encountered caring support and genuine interest. Albeit mother's stay was brief she was looked after with tender loving care and received exemplary nursing attendance. For the first time since her onset of ill health I experienced 'peace' with the assurance of her being well looked after. We were both treated with respect and awareness of our differing needs. Thank you all.
