    Visited with a friend and big thanks to Landie Man for showing us the way in and the history to the place.

    History

    Built by and originally owned by the council; this “Home for Older Peopleâ€￾ was constructed and opened in the 1970’s, and was home to older people. The site closed down in summer 2009 relocating its staff and residents to the new care home in Wing on June 15th. The council sold the site to The Fremantle Trust who still own the land and plan to demolish the existing building, and build a new care home on the plot.

    The Elms provided accommodation for 56 elderly people, split into 5 different living groups. Each resident has their own bedroom, and each group has its own dining area and living area. These groups included: EMI (Elderly and Mentally Infirm) AKA Specialist Dementia Care Facilities.

    The home is set in Elmhurst, a densely populated area of Aylesbury. The building is not very inspiring, and fairly demeaning.

    The site is currently used by the fire brigade as training ground. It is rumoured the building is subsiding, and has structural defects, as some of it is held up with recently installed joists.

    The site was closed due to structural defects, and due to the fact that the law governing living standards for care homes was amended, meaning that every single residential room should have an en-suite bathroom and the room needed to be of an acceptable size.

    It would have crippled Fremantle to do this, so this home was closed.
