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.

On Monday 27th March 2017 Four Seasons scooped the ‘Flu Fighter Social Care Award’ at the prestigious Flu Fighter awards.
The Flu Fighter award celebrate the great achievements of flu teams and organisations who promote the importance of flu vaccinations to everyone in their organisation.
Four Seasons was shortlisted for the ‘Social Care Award’ after being nominated following the success of the internal Flu and You campaign. Before being presented with the award, Daniel Mortimer, Chief Executive for NHS Employers said: “Four Seasons Heath Care launched its campaign with the goal of reducing the occurrence of flu in its colleagues. They created leaflets and flu packs that provided details about the importance of the flu vaccination and how to get vaccinated. This worked really well and they had an extra 1,600 colleagues vaccinated, which increased uptake by 22% this season. Well done.”
