“Elsbeck Grove is in a lovely, safe area and has a happy and busy atmosphere. People here enjoy being part of the community and have many friends in the area. Staff enjoy working at Elsbeck Grove as the people are very social and likeable. The house itself is great because it is large enough to offer enough private space and communal areas to socialise.” Manager, Elsbeck Grove
