Gwladys B, Respite November 2018

I’ve had a lovely time, it’s been excellent. I will miss the friends I have made. Everyone has been very friendly. It has been easy here and everything has been done for me. The food has been good – my favourite was Shepherds Pie! I have played Bingo this morning and the activities lady is there every day.

Gwladys’ daughter:  My mother has had a wonderful time, everything’s been really good and I can’t fault it. Mum said if she was to stay in a home it would be this one.

Why did you choose Elkington House?

[Initially] I didn’t think of Elkington House as I thought it was just for blind people but my neighbour knows Sarah and therefore recommended it.

Dear Sarah and All the Wonderful Staff at Elkington House Care Home, Just wanted you to know I truly appreciate how amazing you've all been with my Nan. The love, care and attention you've shown her has been nothing short of outstanding. Everything, from the bubbly atmosphere in the home to the beautiful f..

Dear friends a very big thank you for all the care and love you gave to dear Malcolm I do miss him so much but I shall always be most grateful that the final year of his life was spent at Elkington House best wishes to you all with love..

The care and treatment my mother has received since going into Elkington House in December 2016 has been excellent. The home is spotlessly clean as are the residents. All the staff are very caring and get my mother to interact with them, even when she might rather not bother. Communication with me and the rest of my family is very good. I couldn't be happier about her living there. Thank you.  22 Aug 2017

Excellent staff and really caring. My father-in-law moved in for respite care but as everything was good for him he did not want to go back to his own house. He said the food was very tasty and was it cooked on the premises.
There is a lovely back garden to sit in and parking space in front for visitors. As well as a spacious dining area there is a Lounge to where we took his favourite chair from his house.
Entertainment is arranged and social games and quizzes are held regularly.
They could not have done any more for him.


To everyone at Elkington House Care Home thank you all for taking such great care of my grandad, it is so lovely to see him happy with you, you do such a fantastic job !!!..
