Welcome to The Elms Care Home in Peterborough

Our home is situated in a quiet area of the attractive market town of Whittlesey outside Peterborough. Formerly a large private residence retaining many of its original features including beautiful stained glass windows, The Elms has been carefully converted and thoroughly modernised to offer a high standard of care.

Our dedicated team of professionals are on hand 24-hours a day, providing carefully tailored support to residents, while at the same time allowing them as much independence as possible. Our focus is on respect and quality of life.

Life at The Elms Care Home

Engaging activities are a vital part of the care we provide. We try to make sure our residents have something fun to try every day.

Our activities

Group activities are a great way for residents to get to know one another, while at the same time improving general humour, appetites and sleep patterns.

We have activities to suit all tastes and abilities – from the baking club, light gardening, arts and crafts to musical afternoons. There are also visits from friendly cats and dogs, which are always very popular with residents.

There are regular volunteering and charity events that we invite friends, family and members of the local community who might be living alone to join in with.

Can I bring my own furniture?

Depending on its size, new residents are welcome to bring furniture to their new room. Many of our residents bring a favourite armchair or pictures and other small belongings to personalise their room.

How soon can I move in?

This depends on availability of rooms in the home, understanding the cost of care and the person moving in receiving a care assessment.
