Elm Bank Care Home in Kettering

Elm Bank Care Home is nestled in the 'Rose of the Shires', Northamptonshire, We are local to Kettering town centre, easily accessible by car and bus for visiting family, and not far from Wicksteed Park.  At Elm Bank we provide a range of accommodation and services for older people in need of short breaks or long term care such as 24-hour residential care.

Our beautiful bedrooms are set across four suites with a number of communal lounges, dining rooms, and relaxing gardens, meaning peace and quiet is never far away.

We have a lovely community for residents with lower support needs, giving them the care and support they need to remain as independent as they can with a choice of active and social opportunities every day.

The home also includes a Grade II listed mansion, which has been beautifully transformed into luxury assisted living accommodation. This accommodation is suitable for individuals who are still very independent and simply wish to have a little help with some everyday personal care. We have a wonderful private courtyard, a patio area and a Victorian summer house, perfect for fresh air and socialising.

We have a lovely suite for respite guests coming to us when their families go on holiday, or for rest and recuperation after an illness or operation. Some people come to Elm Bank simply for a change of scene and to be pampered.

Dementia Care

We also provide specialist support for individuals living with dementia in our bespoke Memory Lane Community, where care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with an individual approach. We have also invested in a 'Magic Table' for our home, an interactive light projector designed to support people living with dementia through mentally and physically stimulating games.

General Manager

Hi, my name is Marvellous, I am the General Manager here at Elm Bank Care Home. Welcome to our website.

I have been a registered nurse for 18 years. I trained at St Bartholomew School of Nursing, City University London. I worked in a large London hospital for many years before relocating to Northamptonshire with my husband several years ago to start a family.

My experience is varied having worked in a variety of settings including local hospitals, rehabilitation units, community and nursing homes. I have 6 years of management experience and I thoroughly enjoy equipping staff with knowledge and skills to help them to give their best to our residents and enjoy their work.

I love working for Barchester and feel privileged to be leading a great team and ensuring our residents are provided with quality service that meet each individual needs.  The atmosphere at Elm Bank is welcoming and we strive to create a community that is homely, happy and active for our residents to live fulfilled lives.
