These are a popular place for residents in the warmer months. Your loved one is welcome to help us to keep the gardens looking good.

Each of the bedrooms at our West London care home are beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished. Every room as en-suite facilities, a flat-screen television, a 24-hour nurse call system and a telephone connection.

What others have to say

Here are just some of the comments we’ve received from family, friends and residents at Ellesmere House care home.

All of the staff are really responsive and caring and in just a short length of time they have got to know my father really well, it is a lovely place to visit.

Miss. L.C Relative of a resident, July 2019

They all know her name and refer to her affectionately when they are speaking to me and they seem to be very respectful and fond of her as a person.

Relative of a resident, July 2019

She always seems well looked after and on changeover of staff, any issues with my mum are covered.

Miss S.M, Relative of a resident, July 2019

Staff build a personal relationship with the residents. The staff engage with my relative and with the other residents in the care home. I'm very happy about my relative’s care.

Mr Sean Mcguigan, March 2019

Every time I go there staff are so lovely… My relative is always tidy. Staff bring my relative to the hairdressers once a week. Staff are really lovely to my relative.
