Woodlands Manor Care Home
Welcome home to true care for elderly residents and people living with dementia, in Southport, Merseyside.
It’s the little things that makes Woodlands Manor a real home away from home. Here, we’ve combined a stimulating environment conducive to dementia care with the tasteful interiors of a lovingly preserved property.
Woodlands Manor has 26 bedrooms with stylish décor and high standard furnishings. Our themed communal areas are where residents put their feet up in the company of others and/or join in social activities. These include the bright and airy garden room, overlooking our garden, and the 1950s Reminiscence room, which boasts original vintage and retro features like gramophone, an old television and rotary dial telephone.
Our home has an in-house hair dressing salon where residents benefit from regular grooming and pampering by a dedicated hairstylist who visits weekly. A resident’s kitchenette is easily accessible to all, allowing residents and close family to help themselves to light refreshments as and when they want. Dedicated staff are always on hand to assist with individual needs and guide activities. Woodlands Manor also boasts a Remembrance Garden with memorial plaques. This is where we hold our annual remembrance day for past residents.
At Woodlands Manor, we specialise in End of Life Care, and have received the Gold Standards Framework award by the National GSF Centre. It is one of two Cedars Care Group care homes based in Southport. The other, is Cedar Grange Care Centre which also holds the GSF award for end of life care.
Activities & Stimulation
At Cedar Grange we have a dedicated activities coordinator, Liz Seville. Liz ensures that varied and interesting daily activities promote wellbeing and purpose among our residents. Furthermore, each resident has a ‘This is Me’ profile, drawn up when they first arrive. This is Me profiles keep us aware of a resident’s existing hobbies, skills, and interests. They also guide us when we are introducing residents to something new. Find out More
We believe that every individual has his/her own story to tell. At Cedars Care Group homes, we make it our business to get to know the people we care for by spending time with them. Remembering past achievements, and the good old days, often helps to maintain a sense of self and fulfilment.
Family visits and family involvement are vital to the wellbeing of our residents. That’s why we aim to provide an environment that’s comfortable and invigorating for both residents and their visitors. Our planned activities and events are key opportunities for family participation and support. While the option of privacy is always available.
Personal Space & Personalised Care
Familiarity and reminiscence is invaluable. It keeps our residents connected with life; can ease the transition into care; and is helpful in improving memory skills for people with Alzheimer’s. At Woodlands Manor, all our residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with small belongings and photographs. This inspires a sense of personal space and belonging.
We offer several types of stay depending on the level of support required: Residential Care; Convalescent Care; Respite Care; as well as Dementia Care for early and middle stage dementia. Each resident receives personalised support in accordance with his/her individual care plan, under the supervision of a dedicated home manager.
At Woodlands Manor we actively seek feedback. It helps us ensure our care home continues to offer the highest quality support and care, tailored to the needs of our individual residents. Leave Feedback
