Cygnet Elms

162-164 Streetly Road, Birmingham, B23 7BD

Cygnet Elms is a 10 bed high dependency complex care service for women with learning disabilities and other complex needs. In June 2018 the Care Quality Commission (CQC) rated Cygnet Elms ‘Outstanding’ in all areas.

When individuals come into our care they can often be mentally and emotionally fragile, due to the transition and change. We believe that creating a calm and inviting environment we can enhance a person’s progress and self esteem to help them on their care pathway. Our communal living spaces are fresh, spacious and encourage social interaction.

All of the bedrooms are en-suite and furnished to a high standard. The people in our care are encouraged to personalise their bedroom to their own taste.
