Eleanor Nursing and Social Care was founded in 1979 and since we have developed extensive experience and knowledge in the healthcare sector.

Since our humble beginning in 1979, we have developed extensive experience and knowledge across all areas of the healthcare sector.

Today, we are a large independent provider of a wide range of Health & Social care services including Care at home, Hospitals logistics, Residential care homes and Day centres. Our services and staff support thousands of NHS patients and Care at Home individuals of all ages with varying levels of need for support.

Our consistent high standards of care are delivered by a compassionate and dedicated team of people. Our staff are always encouraged and supported to expand their skills with a catalogue of course options available at our dedicated training facility in Lewisham.

We operate in both the public and private sectors to deliver our support service to NHS clinical teams and care to our service-users nationwide.

Over the last decade our portfolio has expanded in particular within the Hospital Logistics and Patient Transport markets. This development has seen us become the Eleanor Healthcare Group we are today.

What we do

Eleanor COVID-19 outreach

Langton Way began in April as an Eleanor initiative to provide domestic care and support on behalf of the Greenwich Council.

What started with just 10 beds, a manager and 3 staff, has evolved into a lifesaver for the NHS during COVID-19 Crisis.

Care at home

Care at home is all about your personalised support to get you up and about in the morning, support to take your medication at the right time, help you move around the house and even to feed your pets.

There are a variety of services available for you to choose from.

What people say about us


I believes that without the Smerdon Day centre coordinating activities and providing support as they did through lockdown, it would have been incredibly more difficult than it was. The staff at Smerdon as 100% dedicated to their roles, which they do every day, every week and every year!
I'd like to immensely thank the team at Smerdon for showing love, care & support to my son & daughter.
