Elms Court is located on Cholmondeley Avenue, a leafy quiet street in historic Opawa. We are only about 100m away from historic Risingholme, which is now a community centre that some of our residents have previously used.

We are also located only 200m from Opawa shopping mall, which contains numerous shops including a cafe, hairdresser, fruit and vege shop, and dairy. A bus service is a short walk away.

I and the extended family are confident and grateful that he is receiving the best of care.


All our rooms have single beds, wardrobes, comfortable chairs, flat screen television and chests of drawers. We do however encourage our residents to personalise their rooms so that they feel comfortable and at home. We can also provide telephones if required and WiFi is available.  Pets are generally welcome.

In 2015 we finished an extensive upgrade of the home. We added four bedrooms, a new bathroom, laundry and an internal courtyard which includes seating and a water feature and is an ideal spot to enjoy some fresh air and relaxation in a private, secluded setting.

We will always think highly of you and recommend your home.


Due to the smaller size of the home, we provide a superior, homely environment for our residents. Staff and residents are able to foster a closer relationship with residents which ultimately means residents needs are better met through personal relationships.
