But don’t just take our word for it! Stanley Fishman moved into Elsyng House last month and has spoken about how he has settled in.
“It’s exceptional,” Stanley said. “The staff are very good and the room is excellent – you couldn’t get a better room!
“You’ve got all the furniture you need and because the place is so well organised, you never get bored.
“It is a great location and everything is up-to-date and very modern.”
The pandemic continues to raise challenges for residents and their families but Elsyng House has a number of safety measures and infection control procedures in place.
Family visits can take place in a specially-adapted room with a glass screen, which divides the room into two halves with separate entrances to maintain social distance, hand sanitising stations and PPE are readily available. The visiting sessions can be booked in advance for a 30-minute session.
Elsyng House manager Sonia Kasese explained: “We have achieved a safe service during the pandemic and we have a very high vaccine uptake.”
Elsyng House is named after a former royal palace that once graced the estate, just a five-minute walk away from the home. Henry VIII used Elsyng as a base for his hunting trips, and his children Mary, Elizabeth and Edward spent part of their childhood there.
As Queen, Elizabeth is also believed to have stayed at Elsyng on at least four occasions. Today, Forty Hall Estate is the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of Enfield and is the borough’s top visitor attraction.
