There is an excellent team of carers and nurses who I can see actually "care" about the residents and relatives. I feel very fortunate to have found such a great environment for my mother to be looked after in.


The lady who looks after the activities is excellent so we as a family are very happy to say to others this home is both caring and safe. My mother is happy so we are all happy.


The care and attention that was given was wonderful. Full marks to everybody in the home.


Comfortable and caring. Staff are competent and caring, always ready to help.


The staff are wonderful and the care my husband receives is excellent.

Chick Hatching at Cedarwood House Care Home

Earlier last month, at our East Sussex care home, Cedarwood House, we received a chick hatching kit from Incredible Eggs and a total of 5 eggs! the eggs came from our local farm, Valley View, and were partially incubated.

For several days, staff and residents waited eagerly for them to hatch. When the big day arrived, all of us fell instantly in love and were quick to choose names for our little chicks. We called them: Mushroom, Humbug, Pepsi, Guinness and Nugget.

The new life brought calm to some of our more unsettled residents, stimulating memories of caring and nurturing. Watching the chicks grow so rapidly was a different joy in itself, inspiring feelings of responsibility and accomplishment. It wasn’t long before we had a hutch built in the garden to house our hens and cockerels. And now we’re all looking forward to fresh organic eggs. We dare say, Jane, our resident cook, is the most excited of all, and has been inspecting the hutch to see where she needs to go for the egg collection when the time comes. 

There are no shortage of research articles that highlight the benefits of animal assisted therapy for people with dementia and Alzheimer’s. Studies have shown a marked decrease in feelings of sadness and anxiety, when elderly people in care took part in activities involving pets.

Meaningful activities are a fundamental part of day-to-day life at Cedars Care Group homes. They are vital for the wellbeing of seniors, and those living with dementia or Alzheimer’s. Pet Therapy comes pretty high up on our list of spiritual and therapeutic activities with great benefits to residents. You can find out more about our Activities Here.
