Welcome to The Cedars and Larches Care Home
At the Cedars and Larches Care Home, in Ilkeston, Derbyshire, we provide high quality residential care 24 hours a day for people with varying needs, from specialist support to general assistance with everyday living. Everyone receives a warm welcome, whether they need nursing care, short-term respite care or simply a caring place to call home.
Some individuals stay with us permanently, others for short periods of time. We also offer respite care to give home carers a much-needed break.
Residents pursue their hobbies in communal and quiet lounges throughout the home. These spaces are used for relaxing and socialising in, and are great places to invite friends and families to when they visit.
Life at The Cedars and Larches Care Home
Our activities programme is tailored to residents' preferences, and we have a full and varied calendar. We invite professional entertainers to visit regularly and there's always something going on, from quizzes to musical events.
We organise regular trips to local places of interest, including the library, park and the museum. And we arrange special meal nights when we invite relatives and friends to come along.
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.
My friend and former neighbour, Vic, has been a resident of Cedars for more than 5 years. Staff have always been kind to Vic, as well as cheerful. Their good humour is a valuable tool in taking the worries which beset people who suffer from dementia. I know he appreciates them because he tells me so. That supports my view which has formed after visiting at least weekly and sometimes at a much higher frequency. He also loves the food.
I have been at Cedars and Larches care home for about eight months, I feel safe and settled in my new home, the staff seem friendly and I continue my hobbies daily, my craft needlework is very important to me. I enjoy the trained entertainers. We have social events.
My wife, as an ex nurse, is cared for in an excellent manner, and myself and my family feel very supported in this care home. I am happy to know my wife is local to where I live.
I have liked the above care home for about three years. My room is comfy and warm, I feel safe and well looked after. Food is nice, I am given a choice of meal times. I use the homes hairdressing service. I have a daily news paper delivered. I like being looked after by regular staff, this makes me feel comfortable. The homes gardens are nice to sit out in during the summer months, and local shops are a short walk away. I enjoy games and group activities.

Friday 16th June marked Care Home Open Day, a day that actively encourages people in the local community to pop into their local care home and find out what’s going on.
The theme for this year’s open day was friendship, and Four Seasons homes and their local community certainly forged some long lasting friendships with their local communities through a variety of different events.
The events included:
- The Prince’s Trust heading into Kingsmead Care Home in Swindon sprucing up the garden
- Ty Eirin Care Home in Port welcomed in local school children and councillors for a fun filled afternoon
- A Jazz band kept everyone entertained in Pontypridd at Ty Gwynno Care Home
- It was a more sleepy affair at Whittington Care Home in Chesterfield as the team turned up for work in the PJs before having lots of fun with residents, relatives and visitors to the home
- Music and dancing was definitely on the cards for many of our homes as Benarty View Care Home in Kelty, Gotton Manor Care Home in Taunton, Benholm Care Home in Forfar and Laurels Lodge Care Home in Woodside, all had musical entertainment (and an assortment of other activities) for their guests
- Campsie View Care Home in Glasgow had their own petting zoo for everyone to enjoy
- The Laurels Care Home in Hetton-le-Hole held a country and western themed day which everyone thoroughly enjoyed
- Jazz was the music of choice at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston’s festivities.
- Redwell Hills Care Home in Consett, remembered the friends they’d sadly lost and released some balloons with messages in their honour.
The photos you can see above are just a snap shot of what happened at our homes during Care Home Open Day. It’s great to see from the pictures that everyone had lots of fun.

Residents at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston were transported back to the 50s and 60.
Nina Wright, Home Manager, said: “The 50s and 60s were the hey days for many of our residents, so the fact we could turn back time from them and provide them with things which triggered lots of memories was great. I think this may become a regular occurrence at the home.”
