About the community The Elms Retirement Residence

The Elms Assisted Retirement Campus is located in a beautiful Victorian neighborhood central to downtown Westerly, RI. We are within minutes of safe walking distance to Granite Theatre, Wilcox Park, Westerly Library and many churches, shops and restaurants.
Founded in 1985 by onsite Owner Guy Maiorano, we have been a trusted home to thousands of seniors who desire worry-free, month to month apartment rental with full amenity services, as well as healthcare support as needed.
We are privately owned and operated, and completely resident-focused unlike most other assisted living communities controlled by large corporations and burdened by unreasonable distractions, overhead expenses, and constant turnover of staff.
At The Elms main building, residents enjoy an independent, autonomous lifestyle with daily fitness, social and cultural opportunities, dining, maid and laundry service, and chauffeured transportation and outings. Most utilities and safety/security systems are included in the rental fee. Staff are onsite and available to all residents 24 hours per day. The community's electrical system is backed by a generator that provides 100% power supply in the event of an outage. The Elms is also licensed to centrally store and administer medications and assist with dressing and bathing as needed.

The Elms Retirement Residence

The community is kept clean. The staff seems to go above and beyond to keep an eye on the people that live there. They do offer activities to the residents. Definitely a good value for the price.

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.

A good community

The staff are wonderful. There is always a head nurse and enough staff to be attentive to all the residents. The food is good and they offer a lot of healthy options. They always have something going on for the residents. The residents seem happy with each other. The community is clean, small and quaint. I would recommend this community.

Elms memory care assisted living for my mom.

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.

Very nice place!

During my tour of the Elms Assisted Retirement Campus, I met the nurses and the staff. The place was nice and clean. The tour guide was very friendly and took me around the entire building. We chose another community because of location, but this was a good option.

Staff is as nice as can be !!!

Chef is wonderful at making sure my mom is happy with her meals and making adjustments if needed. The staff is very kind and always helping my loved one with her bathing and morning hygiene. They offer a great happy hour at 4:00 pm for all of the residents, and have a great variety of activities. They often hold events for the families to be involved in , I am amazed by this community

Wonderful Care for Seniors with Dementia

My father spent the last couple of months of his life in The Elms Carriage House which is for seniors with dementia. The care he received was wonderful - professional, friendly and very personal. The staff cared to know my father as a person and we're very engaged with all the patients. What impressed me even more though was the care shown for my mother as my father's daily visitor. The staff always made sure she was well fed, emotionally supported and frequently asked after her own well being. I highly recommend this program to families searching for care!

Staff couldn't be nicer

The first thing that sold me on The Elms was the layout, I love the layout of the Carriage House. I love the staff, the staff is wonderful. The food is good there too. My sibiings and I visited my mom her everyday last week and we all are very happy, it's a great place.
