About the Home
Elm Grove is a stunning building that's been converted from a private
house and is located on the outskirts of the historic Roman town of
Cirencester. Elm Grove underwent an extensive refurbishment in
November 2014 which included full redecoration and brand new
furnishings throughout the home. Leafy grounds and flat screen
televisions are just two of the additional features that residents enjoy.
As well as their individual care plan, we also draw up a 'Map of
Life' for each resident when they arrive at the home. This is
completed with the help of the resident themselves, their family and
friends. This is then used so we can build up a clear picture of that
particular person's emotional and social needs.

Who we are
Bupa Care Homes provides expert nursing, dementia, residential and
specialist care throughout the UK. Our purpose is to help people live
longer, healthier, happier lives.
Passionate about making lives better, every decision we make is
because we care. It's why we inspire and support our carers to put our
residents' wellbeing at the heart of everything they do.
