Welcome to Cedar Court Care Home
You'll find Cedar Court in Abbeywood, South East London. Around the clock, we provide specialist, high quality residential care - and day care - for individuals with dementia.
Ours is a purpose-built home. Its large garden has a patio, greenhouse and vegetable patches - making a safe and stimulating space for people living here to spend enjoyable time.
Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges - perhaps watching TV, listening to music, or having a quiet read. All of these areas are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Our bedrooms are decorated to a high standard, and many have en-suites.
Life at Cedar Court Care Home
People living here get very involved with our activities coordinator to plan our programme of goings-on.
This includes arts and crafts, reminiscence exercises, gentle gardening, quizzes, and live entertainment. We also love catering for special celebrations, such as residents' birthdays and anniversaries.
As supporters of the UK National Dementia Strategy we help ensure key life skills are maintained, building purpose and providing nurture for those with dementia. We organise group and individual activities, but in our experience it's the one-to-one sessions that people find most calming and rewarding.
Mealtimes are an enjoyable and sociable part of the day. Each dining area has tables laid with fresh flowers and linen, and our menus are displayed to show the choices available. Snacks, fresh fruit and refreshments are provided 24 hours a day.
We have highly nutritious and varied menus, and cater for all dietary and cultural needs. All food is prepared using fresh ingredients every day in our kitchens. Depending on how they feel, each resident can choose to have their meals in their own room, or in our dining room. We encourage friends and family to join us for meals or afternoon tea any time.
Every member of staff cleaners to managers are friendly to residents and visitors. It is where I would like to be should the need arise.
How can you improve what is not broken!
Small home, makes it excellent for residents. Very caring staff, well trained in dementia care. Residents and relatives are made very welcome. Staff respond quickly to needs and requests. Nothing is too much trouble. The activities co-ordinator provides daily activities for residents and monthly social events are regularly planned e.g singers, bbq's which the relatives are encouraged to participate in. It has a family home feel, a hairdresser and doctor make weekly visits and other health needs are provided if needed e.g dental, physio, opticians etc. We know mum is safe and well cared for in pleasant environment.
A lovely friendly home. Lovely atmosphere very caring staff and always made to feel welcome.
I love the fact there are animals here for the residents, the staff are always happy and smiling. I never thought mum would settle into a home as she was always against going into one. However, she settled very quickly and is completely 'at home' and contented, I am very pleased and relieved!!

Four Seasons Health Care picked up three accolades on Tuesday 5th December 2017 at the Training Journal (TJ) Awards. Winning three categories meant that Four Seasons Health Care led the way, as they were the only organisation to win in multiple categories.
Who were the winners?
The Dementia Care Framework won the ‘Best Change Management Programme’, which is a fantastic achievement and further highlights the positive impact this is having on the lives of people living in Four Seasons homes with dementia.
The Judges commented: “We recognise Four Health Care work in the field of dementia care as innovative and thorough in its approach, being both effective and transformative. It had a bold vision that was well executed in a challenging environment.”
The Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ), Four Seasons’ very own internal publication to develop nurse knowledge and share best practice won its category of ‘Best Organisational Development Programme'.
The Judges commented: “The design of this intervention, which on the surface appears very simple, completely meets the needs of the organisation and has had significant impact. A particular strength was that Four Seasons Health Care decided to make these resources freely available to anyone, making the impact even greater and is improving healthcare outcomes in care homes everywhere.”
Finally, Louise Morris the Care Home Assistant Practitioner (CHAP) Lead won the main award of the night and was crowned the ‘Learning and Development Professional of the Year’.
The Judges stated: “Louise has had a transformational impact, not only on the learning and development of staff at Four Seasons Health Care, but also on the well-being of residents. Through a review of an existing programme, Louise drove design and improvement which has had significant benefits through improved care, staff practice and confidence and commitment to their work and professional development.”
Congratulations to everyone on this fantastic achievement!

Residents from Cedar Court Care Home in Abbeywood swapped the nice clean setting of the home, to that of Mudchute Farm, where they had the opportunity to be farmers for the day.
The residents had the chance to look around the farm and get hands on with the animals who live and work on there.
Acting Home Manager Richard White, said: “It’s important for the residents to get out and about away from the home. Just because you live in a care home doesn’t mean your life should stop. Actually a few of our residents would say this is where life begins for them. When the residents came home, they filled me in on everything they had done at the farm, which was lovely to hear. By the sounds of it they’d be happy to go back again and get up close and personal with the animals.”

A care home in Abbeywood unveiled its sensory room last month, which will continue to enhance the loves of the residents who live there.
The sensory room at Cedar Court, which is operated by Four Seasons Health Care, encompasses the latest technology benefitting those with sensory and cognitive impairments.
Richard White, Acting Home Manager, said: “The sensory room will have a fantastic effect on the residents here at Cedar Court. It’s the creation of Richard, a resident here at the home, and his family. They wanted to provide something special that Richard and the other residents at Cedar Court could use and enjoy on a regular basis.”
The sensory room will enhance the specialist care that is already being provided at Cedar Court. The sensory room will offer a tranquil and stimulating environment for everyone at the home as well as their friends and family.
Richard White, added: “We cannot thank Richard and his family enough for their thoughtful and kind act for all the residents here at Cedar Court. Everyone is really excited about using the sensory room.
