Description
Elmslie House is our perfectly positioned Enliven care home close to Wanaka township and the wonderful Lake Wanaka.

There's a sense of community at Elmslie House, where some things make for happier, healthier living. It's where you are encouraged to retain connections with friends and favourite places in the community, and where staff and volunteers work alongside you and your family to achieve those things that are important to you.

Wanaka's climate encourages residents to spend time outdoors, and there are many activities and outings to enjoy with like-minded people. Encouraging residents to be as independent as possible; to make choices in the things that matter to them, is part and parcel of Presbyterian Support Otago's Enliven services.
