Woodlands Manor Care Home
Welcome home to true care for elderly residents and people tackling dementia, in Southport, Merseyside.
What makes Woodlands Manor a real home away from home are the little things. We’ve combined a stimulating environment conducive to dementia care, with tasteful interiors and surprising fixtures, in a lovingly preserved property.
Our themed communal areas are where residents put their feet up in the company of others and/or join in social activities. The Family Room is bright and airy. The Conservatory Room opens out onto a verdant garden. While the 1950s Reminiscence room boasts original vintage and retro features like gramophone, an old television and rotary dial telephone. Dedicated staff are always on hand to guide activities and assist with individual needs.
Woodlands Manor has 27 bedrooms with stylish décor and high standard furnishings. Some of these are en-suite. Woodlands Manor received the Gold Standard Framework award by the National GSF Centre for End of Life Care. It is one of two Cedars Care Group care homes based in Southport. The other is Cedar Grange Care Centre.
Activities & Stimulation
Varied and interesting daily activities promote wellbeing and purpose among our residents. That’s why each resident has a life book, drawn up when they first arrive. Life Books keep us aware of a resident’s existing hobbies, skills, and interests. They also guide carers when introducing residents to something new. Find out More
At Woodlands Manor, we believe that every individual has his/her own story to tell. We make it our business to get to know the people we care for by spending time with them. Remembering past achievements and fond memories often help maintain a sense of self and fulfilment.
Family involvement and visits 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. 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 us 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 mild to medium dementia care. 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
Hearty, home cooking really makes a house a home. Our chef creates a wide range of balanced, nutritious meals. These are prepared daily and in accordance with residents’ dietary requirements. Each day presents varied menu options, allowing a choice of seasonal hot and cold dishes. Popular choices are roast dinners, fish & chips and traditional puddings. Special requests for dishes can be made and alternative options are always available. Meals can be taken in the dining room or served in the resident’s room if they prefer. Find out More
My mother has been resident here for almost a year. She has vascular dementia which is getting worse. Prior to entering Woodlands Manor, she was becoming gradually more insular and avoiding people. When my father died, I moved in with her as a full-time carer, his death caused a huge decline in her mental health to a point where she forgot him altogether, she became more frustrated with everyday tasks and eventually became quite violent, forcing a move to residential care.
When she moved into Woodlands for a few weeks respite while awaiting assessment, she started to come out of her shell. The staff were stimulating her interest in other people, she was in a caring and socially acceptable (to her) 'hotel' with minimal need to go home (her dementia had taken her back 60 years to her parents' house).
She is quite happy now, being looked after hand and foot, with active social interaction, good food and health care and a stable staffing structure without too much change
