Situated in the beautiful old market town of Hitchin, close to Stevenage, Elmside care home provides life-enhancing residential and dementia care for up to 69 older people.

The plot of land that Elmside is built on was sold to MHA by the local Moss family, well-known in Hitchin for their grocery stores. The Moss family home was replaced by a completely new two storey building, together with an adjacent retirement living with care community, Archers Court Retirement Living apartments.

Elmside care home comprises fully furnished single bedrooms that offer en suite facilities rooms for 25 people plus specialist care suites designed for couples, enabling their differing care needs to be met.

Communal areas include a coffee shop, IT suite, library, salon and therapy rooms, all of which can be used by residents in the neighbouring community too. 

"The aim is to develop a real community within the Care Centre,” says the Home Manager, “encouraging residents and their visitors to enjoy all the facilities available."

Elmside is also committed to providing alternative therapies such as music therapy to residents, while a Chaplain offers pastoral support to all, whatever their beliefs.

Funded through charitable support, every MHA care home also prides itself in being able to offer unique and memorable opportunities and activities for residents to quite literally help them 'seize the day'.
