Thank you so much for your time this morning and showing me around Elms Court. Absolutely fabulous. What a very special place you have there. I was privileged enough to sit quietly for a while prior to us meeting and observe how kind and caring the staff were to the residents sitting in the lounge area. Your programmes are brilliant for entertaining and obviously the residents are kept as busy as they want to be with what's on!

“Thank you everyone for your love and care to our father, you did more for us than you could ever understand”

“Thank you all so much for the great care you showed for my mother. Also for the support and kindness to us in those last days”

“Many thanks for the support and friendship provided to our brother. You have a great team at Elms Court”

“A big thank you to you all for your wonderful care, love and support to Mum over the last 2 years. I know that some times it was difficult but your kindness and love was deeply appreciated and will always be remembered”

“Thank you for your support during this difficult time as Mum comes to terms with her loss of independence. I appreciate your ongoing concern and helpfulness”

“Thank you for the care I received from the staff at Elms Court they made my long respite stay enjoyable”
