What do others say about this home?
“People continued to receive safe care and support. People and their relatives told us they felt the home was a safe place to live and they felt safe with the staff that supported them. Comments included, "Oh yes I definitely feel safe. The staff are kind people and they have a chat with you"”
“I cannot begin to tell you how grateful I am to all of the staff (but particularly the manager) at Elmstead for looking after him with such care. Even staying in contact to reassure that he was ok.”
