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.

Activities

Varied and meaningful activities are a fundamental part of day-to-day life. They are vital for the wellbeing of seniors, and those living with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

At Cedars Care Group homes we facilitate activities suited for the interest and capabilities of all our residents. Physically and mentally stimulating, they are designed to enhance life skills and promote a sense of purpose and self-worth in the people we support.

An activity that is meaningful for one person may not interest another. We know this because we care for individuals. Cedars Care Group homes are small and intimate. This means residents get personalised support by specialist carers and activity staff who work to engage them sensitively. Each resident’s This is Me profile helps staff keep track of existing hobbies, skills, and interests. They also guide carers when introducing individuals to something new.

Group & Individual Activities

There is no single activity which is beneficial to seniors or people with dementia. What’s important is that an activity is meaningful to the individual taking part. While some residents may be more involved in group activities, others will prefer to sit down with a book or talk about the good old days. This is why our activity staff work with residents on a group and individual level.

Birthdays and seasonal events are important to us. We put a lot of effort into making them special and celebrating together. Planned activities and occasions such as these are key opportunities for family participation and support. Resident families are always encouraged to attend. A full calendar of events is displayed at each home monthly. You can also follow us on Facebook and Instagram for regular updates.

Indoor & Outdoor Activities

Indoor activities at our homes range from quizzes and board games to arts and crafts. Regular visits from external facilitators allow residents to enjoy everything from live music to a bit of pampering by the hairdresser or chiropodist.

We often organise external visits to country parks, theatres and historical places of interest. For senior residents with green fingers, our gardens offer the opportunity for planting and nurturing plants. While others will prefer to pull up a deck chair and enjoy the flowers and birdsong.

What our families say

My grandfather was at Woodlands Manor for a number of years. My grandfather suffered from dementia. It was very hard for us to acknowledge and understand what was happening to him. The staff at Woodlands Manor were very understanding with us. They always updated us with his care and alway looked smart. The laundry lady always told us if he needed anything, just ask. My grandfather also told us how he enjoyed the food. The care staff couldn't have offered any better care. He could be challenging at times but they showed excellent skills with him when he was. Sadly my grandfather passed away this year. My grandfather was taken to the hospital and there was nothing they could do. I don't know how they did it but all the staff at Woodlands got him home as fast as they could so he was back in his own bed. They got district nurses to come and help that night so he wasn't in any pain or agitated. I know my grandfather couldn't have been more peaceful the last days of his life and happy.
