About The Elders care home
The Elders Care Home is set at the top of Ewell Village near all local amenities.
Our large Victorian House is well maintained, spacious and has character. In the mid 1900’s the house was a maternity hospital for the local community, one room was the hospital chapel. There is an extension to the home leading from the dining room and hall which houses a lovely large living room and conservatory, leading out onto a pleasant sunny patio area and large garden lawn.
The home is able to accommodate 23 residents all in single occupancy rooms; we have 11 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and 12 bedrooms near bathroom facilities. We have four assisted bathrooms and one assisted shower room. A good variety of seasonal meals are available for residents to choose from, and we pride ourselves on our ability to cater for individual needs.
Residents assist in the formulation of seasonal menus. Home made cakes are baked daily, and during the warmer seasons we regularly enjoy lunch or afternoon barbecues.
