When visiting, there is always a warm family feeling, which I am sure is felt by the residents.

Thank you all for your excellent care of our dear friend. It was so good to know he was in such good hands whilst he was going through such an awful illness.

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 Life Book 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, or can be found here. 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.
