The Cedars Care Home in Salisbury

The Cedars is a beautiful and friendly care home in the village of Landford, 10 miles from Salisbury on the edge of the New Forest National Park. Our warm and inviting residence provides the comforts of home with 24-hour residential and nursing support for older people. We also provide specialist dementia care for individuals on different stages of their dementia journey, and respite care is available for those requiring shorter stays.

Dementia Care

We provide specialist support for individuals living with dementia in our bespoke Memory Lane Community, where care is focused on independence, dignity and choice, with a person centred approach. We have also invested in a 'Magic Table' for our home, an interactive light projector designed to support people living with dementia through mentally and physically stimulating games.

Each unit features two living rooms, and new residents can choose between the traditional features of Old Cedars and the more modern style of the new wing for their bedroom. We also have woodlands, ornate gardens and raised beds, which are perfect for fresh air and socialising.

Our activities coordinators plan a wide range of activities for each day of the week, from picnics in the New Forest and pub lunches to dancing and live entertainment. If it’s sunny, staff try and get outside, so everyone can appreciate the best of the day. Residents vote on what they would like to do in monthly activity meetings, and make comments in their satisfaction surveys, so that staff can be sure everyone’s looking forward to something, every day.

Technology has opened up the world for residents here at The Cedars. From meeting a great-grandchild for the first time on Skype to a live virtual tour of an art exhibition in Copenhagen, staff are on hand to guide residents through the wonders of new and exciting technology.

Our Team

The dedicated and experienced team are passionate about providing quality care to each individual living at the home.

Jo Pattison

General Manager

I am delighted to be joining the team here at The Cedars, we are in a great position to move forward following the CQC inspection earlier this year. The overall ‘Good’ rating from CQC gives me the opportunity to support the team to deliver the very best care and life enrichment in later life and achieve an even better result at the next inspection.

In my previous home I was thrilled when my team improved on their inspection rating under my leadership coupled with the support of my management team. I have enjoyed a varied career working in social care for adults with learning disabilities, more recently my experience nursing homes has enabled me to appreciate the diverse lives our residents have led, travelling, working and caring for their own loved ones. I look forward to sharing their stories and experiences with my team, growing our family here at The Cedars.

We will also be supporting the community with their local initiatives, reaching out to groups who can bring enrichment to lives of our residents, sharing our knowledge and experience, showing empathy to our neighbours.

Please do pick up the phone or email to talk through any concerns you have about a loved one living alone or needing support, we can arrange a visit, in person or ‘virtually’ on a day or time to suit you. Here at The Cedars you will be sure of a very warm welcome
