All 13 bedrooms in the unit are single and ensuite with nurse-call facilities, flat screen televisions, personal safes and wi-fi access.

Services and Therapies

Our experienced physiotherapy team will conduct an initial assessment to identify your needs and a treatment plan is formulated. Together with our care staff, they will implement rehabilitation protocols to facilitate your safe discharge to home. This assessment and bespoke programme is included in the fee for those staying in the Elgin Convalescence Unit.

Just because you’re not at home, you should not have to make any concessions in terms of the food you love. All our food is locally sourced and freshly prepared. We are happy to discuss any special dietary requirements and can set up a meeting for you with our chef. We cater for individuals who may require specific diets, such as vegetarian, diabetic, coeliac and low fat.

For clients who are well enough there is access to our gardens and, of course, all the facilities which are available at Orwell Private including The Avenue which is home to our hair salon, shop, 50 seater café and rehabilitation gym.
