    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. It's very scenic and serene. If you're considering the Westerly area, I would highly recommend that you check out The Elms!

    I have been an Elms employee now for 6 years. It's 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.

    I'm so thankful that we found the Elms Retirement Residence for our mother. The staff is friendly and caring and they've bent over backwards to accommodate my mother's particular requests - she's not easy. The facility itself is very well thought out - you have the sense it's a resort. There's 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.
