Description
Our newly refurbished Memory Loss Support Unit is dedicated to supporting our residents with Memory Loss who require a secure environment in which to reside.

Set in large park-like ground with beautifully maintained gardens, Elmswood is a small, family orientated aged care facility offering Memory Loss Support (Dementia) care in a family-feeling environment. Having been recently refurbished, the rooms are bright and airy, and there are a range of room sizes to suit individual needs. Residents have access to inviting common areas, and a large secure garden and courtyard where they can spend time with family friends of the resident cat and dog.

Our residents can't say enough about the fantastic meals, the consistently high standard of care provided, the great staff, and the always-interesting recreational programme.
