I am so grateful for the The Elms! What an amazing and supportive community, the staff and other residents really go out of their way to engage with you and make you feel at home. The units are really bright and comfy. It is located in the heart of Westerly, directly across the street from Wilcox Park. Its very scenic and serene. If youre considering the Westerly area, I would highly recommend that you check out The Elms!

I have been an Elms employee now for 6 years. Its a job I love waking up everyday to go to. We all are very family oriented there. This is what makes The Elms different from any other assisted living and memory care places in the surrounding areas.

Im so thankful that we found the Elms Retirement Residence for our mother. The staff is friendly and caring and theyve bent over backwards to accommodate my mothers particular requests - shes not easy. The facility itself is very well thought out - you have the sense its a resort. Theres entertainment, a wonderful restaurant (with local, fresh fish), and beautiful common spaces. My mother was recently moved to their Carriage House since she needs more support, and our family was just so relieved when we saw how comfortable it is. The Elms is wonderful.

The Elms is a great place for Mom and or Dad. The staff is accommodating to needs and wants. The food is excellent and always nicely served by a great group of people. Many activities for the residents. Always decorated for seasonal holidays. Bright with many common areas should your loved one be inclined to socialism.

The Elms was a lovely place. Luckily, they had the perfect room in the perfect location available. During our tour we witnessed many of the residents out and about and engaged in conversation with each other. It has a nice ‘homey’ feel to it.

Have been familiar with the Elms since the 80s due to work. My parents are there now. Superlative in every respect.

I recently placed my mom in Chestnut Cottages. This is a memory care unit at the Elms. The Elms is a respected local business that has proven to be an excellent choice. The facility is beautiful and the staff does an amazing job. I am a retired senior citizen police advocate that assisted many families over the years. When it came to dealing with my own mom, all my experience "went out the window" due to my emotions. I appreciated the caliber of the Elms more than ever. This is a difficult decision for any family. Rest assured this is a great choice.
