Strictly speaking residential care is for frail older people whose needs are low – people who do not require nursing care or specialist care for people living with dementia, for example, but who might need help with washing, dressing and other daily living activities. Confusingly, however, many organisations will use ‘residential care’ to describe homes offering most services such as nursing care or specialised care for younger adults.
The activity programmes provided by our care teams are tailored to meet peoples residential care needs and capabilities – and are thoroughly enjoyed! These include gardening, baking, outings, gentle exercise, pet care and life-skills work. Other specialist activities such as reminiscence therapy, music therapy and complimentary therapies are also a part of our activities programmes.
We are the specialists for dementia care
Here at The Cedar Grange, we place special importance on training every member of our team to understand dementia and what it’s like to live with and care for someone with the condition. Every single member of our team – from each carer we train through to every manager and support staff behind the scenes – is trained in dementia. It’s on one of the many reasons why we’ve become the dementia experts.
The Cedar Grange is specifically designed to support people living with dementia. Corridors have points of interest, offering sensory stimulation and free access to a garden. The Cedar Grange provides high quality of dementia care and improved quality of life experienced by residents.

What is respite care?
Respite care is a temporary care arrangement, often one to two weeks, which offers rest or relief to primary carers.
Caring for another person can be physically and mentally demanding, and much more than purely handling the day-to-day tasks. Especially when caring for long periods at a time, the emotional strain can take its toll. Respite care is there to provide you with a break while still ensuring your loved ones care needs are met.
