Meet our Activities Coordinator, Danielle King
Danielle joined us in September and already made a real impact on the activities in the home, she is full of energy and passionate about life enrichment for our residents.
Activities are the cornerstone of a wholesome home experience, and our Activities Coordinators are always putting their creative minds to the test by organising new and exciting social events for residents to partake in. Of course, we take into account the likes and dislikes of those we support, so if someone doesn’t feel like trying something new, there will always be something on offer to reflect their personal interests. For the people who may just prefer some peace and quiet instead, we also offer one-to-one time that can be enjoyed with a nice cup of coffee or just a simple chat – whatever they desire.
Life at The Cedars Care Home
Our residents at The Cedars participated in a relaxing and soothing sensory yoga session with Sandi this month. Residents worked on their breathing techniques, gentle arm and leg exercises and practising mindfulness. Residents also enjoyed the upbeat movement exercises with our colourful scarfs.
Coffee & Coke Outing
Residents at The Cedars enjoyed their first visit out of the minibus with an exciting trip to Headlands Farm Fishery Café. Residents enjoyed fancy coffee and a delicious slice of homemade cake from the local bakery! We had such a fantastic time eating in the café and walking amongst the beautiful grounds.
Cheers to Wimbledon
Residents at The Cedars enjoyed watching the Wimbledon 2021 finals this year with a refreshing Pimm’s cocktail in hand! Residents also enjoyed a delicious afternoon tea including homemade scones with plenty of thick cream and strawberry jam. We raised a glass to finally having live sport back on our screens!
Resident’s personal messages
Handmade individual cards are really in many people’s thoughts this Christmas so residents decided to craft their own for family and friends this afternoon. The forest theme was very popular and we hope they bring joy to those receiving a card made at The Cedars
A beautiful setting
Pheasants are often in the grounds grazing and they look so colourful when you get close up, from the lounge and our garden rooms the views are stunning over the lawns and trees – it’s difficult to appreciate our stunning setting from just photos so do call us to arrange a virtual tour (on WhatsApp, Zoom or Facetime) or face to face visit. For personal visits we do ask you to follow our visiting protocols to protect residents and staff as we are proud to remain ‘Covid Free’!
Cocktail and Mocktail evening
We all enjoyed and evening of cocktails and mocktails in the lounge, the drinks were served with nibbles to bring a really festive feel to the event
