Meet the The Cedars Care Home team

Our wonderful team comprises nurses, carers, activities coordinators, chefs, housekeepers and more. These people are here to ensure that residents enjoy their time at the home and are supported to live life to the fullest. Meet some of our staff below:

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
