Things to do.
However, while a busy roster of activities looks great on paper, it can never substitute for providing good quality care.
From our experience, we’ve found that residents often move into care to combat social isolation. Many have been living alone. They’ve begun to miss the simple pleasures that come along with friendship and being part of a welcoming community.
Create Your Own Style
As in their own way, each of our residents has led a fascinating life. Some have travelled the world, others have started families and run businesses. As carers, we encourage our residents to share all these experiences with us.
One of the best parts of our job is to learn from the residents we care for, and to celebrate their achievements. It’s for this reason that we don’t opt for an activities overload.
Of course, there will always be time for organised activities which we know our residents like. You can read more about some of the fun things we get up to here in our blog.
But just like in your own home, at Cedar Lodge we aim to cultivate an environment of spontaneous, natural interaction: where wholesome, quality time with each other is prioritised.
When it comes to enjoying their time, our residents set the pace.
If you’d like to learn about a typical day for our residents at Cedar Lodge, call our friendly care home manager Rupert. He’d be delighted to talk through what you could look forward to. Call today on 01386 293 033 .
