The Elms

Swains Road, Bembridge, Isle of Wight, PO35 5XS
01983 872248

An outstanding care home in Bembridge. The Elms is a delightful character residence providing personalised residential, dementia and respite care in the beautiful village of Bembridge on the most easterly point of the Isle of Wight. This wonderful Edwardian property was originally a hotel and has been adapted to include a purpose-built wing, providing a warm and comfortable environment for its residents.

UPDATE: at Hartford Care, we’ve been making some home improvements to all of our existing properties and The Elms has benefited from the following investments. New tarmacking and lining to the carpark, repainting of whole building facade, and a new state-of-the-art hydro spa bath. Ongoing works include- decoration of communal areas, creation of a new hair salon, refurbishment of two communal bathrooms, and brand-new kitchen equipment. Our facilities team will continue carrying out improvement works to all of our existing homes in such a way that residents are disturbed as little as possible. As always, our goal is to improve the lives of our residents by increasing comfort, activity options, and happiness.

Our residents benefit from specialist nursing care delivered by our fully trained, compassionate and caring team. The Elms is comfortable and welcoming, and provides a full schedule of activities, entertainment and outings to cater to everyone’s taste.
