Care and Support

Independent Living – Security, Care and Support

Elements residents commonly share the desire to actively embrace their Third Age of life. Retirement living at Elements can provide you with many wonderful opportunities to do just that!

We do, however, recognise and understand that from time to time and as you age, you may require additional care and support. For this purpose, we have formed partnerships with Heather Hill Home Care and Tunstall and Watersprings Health Care
