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.

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Jessica Pateman

Senior General Manager

Hello. My name is Jessica and I am the General Manager at Elm Bank. My aim is to ensure residents, staff, families and visitors all feel they are in a welcoming environment and being supported by every team in our home. I have always had a passion to care for others due to personal experiences in my early life. I make an effort to stay in regular contact with residents’ relatives, to make sure the family also receives support and information from us, and so we can answer any queries as quickly as possible. 
I began my career as a Carer and have gained experience and qualifications to progress to my current role. I have worked in other Barchester homes, so I fully understand the high standard of care and superior lifestyle delivered throughout the company.
