About Us

A home from home

Elizabeth House stands in a quiet grove in its own pleasant grounds. A short walk away is Shirley shopping centre with access to all the amenities our residents may need.

We’ve designed the house to create a feeling of home. Every resident has their own private bedroom, carefully decorated to bring calm and contentment. There are three lounges, two with colour television. Our residents enjoy regular entertainment and activities. Meals are served in our spacious dining room, and daily menus offer both choice and variety. We also cater for any special dietary requirements.

Families & friends

Families and friends are welcomed at Elizabeth House. We encourage all of our residents to keep up their hobbies and interests as well as developing new ones. Some of the activities currently enjoyed include quizzes, card games, art classes and music recitals. We also organise several outings a year for those who wish to take part.

Culture & faith

The cultural and faith needs of our residents are important to us. We will arrange for religious leaders to visit the house if required and we host a monthly Communion Service. We also arrange for all residents to receive the service of doctors, dentists, chiropodists, opticians and hairdressers as and when they need it.

We are always listening to what our residents want, and formally consult them at regular residents meetings. In this way we are able to make sure we continue to meet the needs of each person staying with us.
