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

A carer and a resident

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.

Kate Spencer, Resident / Service User at The Cedars and Larches Care Home

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.

Sydney Meecham, Husband of Resident/Service User at The Cedars and Larches Care Home

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.

Four Seasons Health Care were finalists in nine categories at this year’s LaingBuisson Awards, and at the awards ceremony on Wednesday 15th November, the organisation was awarded with a well-deserved award.

The LaingBuisson Awards recognise and celebrate industry excellence and innovative services in the public, private and third sectors.

Four Seasons Health Care scooped the award in the ‘Nursing Practice’ category in recognition of the innovative approach to the advancement of nursing knowledge and nursing education within the care home sector.

Our Care Home Nursing Journal (CNJ) along with our individual Nursing Twitter channel (@FSHCNurses) won plaudits with the judges for being totally unique within the care sector.

Furthermore, there was a recognition of the achievements of the front-line nurses who have written articles, presented at conferences, won scholarships and been finalists at numerous nursing awards in the past 12 months. Again, these achievements are unique within the care sector.

Joanne Strain, Head of Nursing, said: “This is a terrific result for Four Seasons Health Care and real recognition of our growing influence amongst care home nurses in the UK. This is only the start of our journey and I want to dedicate this award to all our tremendous nurses across the FSHC family”.

Carol Cousins, Northern Ireland Managing Director, also commented on the award success. She said: “This award is recognition for inspirational nurse leaders in creating the first clinical nursing journal in the independent care home sector – well done to all involved”.

While CNJ editorial board member, and Clinical Lead Nurse of Cameron House Care Home in Bury, Craig Priestley stated: “I’m so proud we won – the CNJ is one of the best learning resources we have for Four Seasons Nurses. It has shaped and improved nursing practice and helped to improve quality of life – well done to all involved in its production!”

If you’d like to take a look at the award winning journal, it’s available on the Four Seasons website in the publications area.

The team and residents at The Cedars and Larches Care Home in Ilkeston have been doing their very best recently to make a real difference in their community.

They’ve done a number of charity events which as seen them donate money to organisations, food, toys and blankets to a local dg charity. Their latest venture sees them helping local women who have found themselves without a home and living on the streets.

Personal Activities Leader, Alison Richards, explained: “We’ve been collecting handbags that we’re filling with personal items, for example, socks, vests, sanitary products, soap, toothbrushes etc to support those ladies who find themselves living on the streets. There has been a huge drive to do this, and when Rachel Kirkpatrick, the local co-ordinator for this initiative came to collect the bags she was stunned by the amount we had. I want to thank everyone who donated to this worthy cause, and helping us to make a difference in our local community.”
