Rest Home

At the heart of Elmswood, is our rest home - the hub of the village. Visitors talk about feeling the friendliness as soon as they come through the main doors.

The rest home offers high quality, full residential care, 24 hours a day, with a registered nurse on site at all times. Our nurses are backed up by a multi-disciplinary team of doctors, physiotherapists, podiatrists, dietitians, and other health professionals who visit Elmswood Retirement Village throughout the week. Respite and daycare are also available.

Elmswood has a reputation for great food, prepared on site by our chefs and kitchen staff. As well as delicious and nutritious meals, fresh home made baking is on the menu everyday. We also cater for a wide variety of dietary needs.

Activities and entertainment are offered throughout the week in the Rest Home’s large main lounge. Intimate sitting areas are also scattered around the facility, giving residents a variety of places to read a book, have a chat and a coffee with friends or family, or simply take in the view of our beautiful gardens.

Our 54 Rest Home rooms are private and all located in the main building. Residents are encouraged to bring personal furniture and treasures to make their new home, their own.
