Elmhurst provides a modern, light and spacious place to live for all service users and an excellent working environment for staff. It also encompasses beautiful landscaped gardens that are accessible for all residents. We are proud to deliver high quality person centred care to all.

The home is single storey, split into four units of ten bedrooms, many of which are ensuite. Each unit has its own fully equipped bathroom/shower room, dining area and lounge. The units also include several separate seating areas and quiet lounges. There is a large front foyer as well as a lovely 50's themed sitting room for all to enjoy.  

In May 2017 at our last CQC inspection we were rated Overall Good.

Here at Elmhurst we offer a wide range of activities to our residents. This includes:

  • Craft Sessions
  • Dominoes
  • Bingo
  • Quizzes 
  • Card Games
  • Armchair Exercises
  • Monthly bus trip out to local places of interest, often going to the Lakes or coastal towns
  • One-on-one trips into the local community
  • Links with Men in Sheds
  • Regular visits by Little Beasties Ulverston (local animal encounters company)
  • Regular visits from nearby Primary School and preschool - children have craft and singing sessions with our residents
  • Residents also attend Croftlands Community Church Lunch Club
  • Attending ceremonies at local churches.

We also support and enable residents to engage in other social activities, hobbies and leisure interests outside of the home.

Residents are also supported to attend religious services of their choice. There is an in-house Church Service once a month and residents also have the opportunity to receive a visit from the local priest on an individual basis.

Karen Shepherd, Home Manager -  "I feel privileged to work at Elmhurst with a dedicated team who provide a happy, safe and positive environment for our residents and their families.  Here at Elmhurst we have created a friendly home where residents are encouraged to maintain their interests and hobbies. Friends and family are always welcome and are encouraged to take part in our events in the home and within the local community.  Elmhurst has been recently modernised and provides a very high standard of accommodation with beautiful, easy to access gardens which our residents and our Blooming Marvellous Gardening Club enjoy relaxing and working in."

The May 2017 CQC inspection captured the views of some of our residents and family members:

Relatives spoke highly of the staff that supported their family members:

"It's a good place"

"I can't fault them here"

"We think it's great here for [relative]". 

Residents had positive things to say about the home too; they are "Happy" living here and said it was a "Grand place" and that staff are "Kind".


Our cooks are well trained and pride themselves on delivering high quality, homemade meals for everyone at the Elmhurst. At meal times there are always a variety of delicious hot dishes to choose from, with no pre-booking required.

Snacks and fruit are available all day. Individual preference and special diets are well catered for at all times.

Treats are also provided upon request and for special events/occasions. Our kitchen staff like to make sure every resident gets their own personalised birthday cake.
