I am a solicitor and my initial contact with Ellerslie Gardens was a solicitor to a client. When my aunt needed are I insisted she goes to Elleslie Gardens as I was extremely happy with the care and support provided to my client. My aunt enjoyed superior care and I am so grateful to the staff of Ellerslie Gardens because it is obvious that to them it is not just a job. They care!
