Let us put the smile back on your face

At Ernelesthorp Care Home 
our Care Manager has been working in the care industry 
for many years and has a great deal of experience in 
caring for the elderly.

We realise that it’s a big decision choosing a new home for yourself or a loved one; please feel free to 
contact the Manager at Ernelesthorp 
at anytime to discuss any concerns you may have and let us help you to make the transition as
 smooth as possible.



“Our objective is to provide a high quality service, where each person receives excellent care. Where dignity and rights are respected and people are supported to make their own choices and decisions and where people can be as independent as they wish to be so that their life may be enjoyed to the fullest potential.”


“To improve the lives of our residents and the communities we serve by consistently delivering special resident experiences and to be the best place to work in the care sector.”

  • To put people and their individual needs first.

  • To actively listen and respond to the people we support.

  • To seek out, appreciate and encourage the potential in everyone.

  • To support people to achieve their aspirations.

  • To learn when things go wrong.

  • To encourage staff to have a good work life balance.


We are very disappointed to announce that after a recent inspection of our home by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) we have had our rating lowered from “GOOD” to “REQUIRES IMPROVEMENT” in 2 of the 5 key areas. Overall we feel that the report is positive, so we urge everyone to click on the link below to read the full CQC report.

  • To all the nursing staff, carers (day/night), 
cooks, cleaners, laundry, kitchen staff and entertainment staff…
We want to say a very, very big thank you
 for all the care you gave to our mum.

  • I am writing to thank you all for the loving care you gave 
to my mother.  She was very happy and we really
appreciate everything you did for her.

  • To all the staff & residents.
  Thanks for all the care and friendship you gave our
 father and father-in-law.

  • To Linda, Irene and all staff, many many thanks for your 
wonderful care shown to mum over the last two years.
  She could not have been better looked after.

  • I would like to thank you all for all the help and kindness you 
gave our uncle while he was in your care.  
He was with you for just one year but I know he was
 very happy and settled in well.
 Once again thanks for everything you’ve all done.


A high level of care with that all important personal touch.

We recognise that each person is unique. Everyone who comes to stay with us has a plan of care developed which is specifically tailored to suit their needs.  We feel that input from the individual, along with their families and friends is invaluable in order to ensure that the care we provide allows them to live as independently as possible with dignity, privacy and respect and the opportunity to make their own choices.


Everyone deserves to take a break now and then

Looking after a relative or friend no matter how much you love and care for them can be very tiring and stressful. Even if you don’t plan to go on holiday, sometimes just taking a break from your regular routine can give you that much needed time to “recharge your batteries”. At Ernelesthorp Care Home we can offer Respite Care for a period of time that suits you, where you can rest knowing that your relative or loved one is in safe hands whilst you get that much needed break.

For more information on how we can tailor a package to suit your needs, please call the Home Manager at Ernelesthorp to find out how we can help you.


Relax and soak up the atmosphere

Ernelesthorp Care Home is set in a beautiful private and peaceful setting with lovely trees and gardens for you to enjoy.

Each bedroom is beautifully decorated and furnished with most having their own en-suite to give you the privacy you require. Each bedroom has its own nurse call point to give you the peace of mind that if you require assistance, it’s simply a ‘press of a button’ away. Whether it be for assistance to get out of bed or you just want a cup of tea because you have awoke in the night. We are always there for you. There are 3 delightful sitting rooms to relax in and a secure quadrant to sit out in the fresh air when we have nice weather.


Full-time Activities Co-ordinator

At Ernelesthorp Care Home we have a full-time dedicated Activity Co-ordinator who arranges a wide range of activities and social events that are available for you to join in if you wish to; this includes games, quizzes, entertainers and other social events at key dates throughout the year.  Families are welcome to visit and join in to support their loved one.

Good food is something we take particular pride in at the home. All meals are prepared fresh each day to a high nutritional standard by an experienced cook. The menu for each day is discussed with each service user so that you can make your choice and needs understood.
