Residents can enjoy the privacy of their own room or socialise with family and friends in one of the open plan living areas or smaller comfortable lounges. We encourage the personalisation of residents bedrooms, with treasured belongings, pictures and memories.
Outside the attractive gardens provide interesting scents, shapes and colours all year round, as well as raised beds so that residents can join in the gardening activities if they wish. Or in good weather, take advantage of the seating areas as a perfect place to meet with friends and family.
Residents regularly enjoy the daily social activities going on in the central communal areas with the hairdressing salon open during the week.

Meet the team
The talented cook and kitchen team prepare delicious, home-cooked meals on site daily from our own kitchens. We source quality produce for our excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. All-day dining is available for lighter meals and snacks and all dishes are carefully balanced to get the best nutritional value and cater for individual dietary requirements and preferences.
Seasonal produce is chosen whenever possible and of course, relatives and friends are always welcome to join us. The menus change daily, and the kettle is always on. Our chef bakes every day so there is always a fresh cake to enjoy.
Residents are also encouraged to help prepare their own food and to make snacks whenever they choose.
Whether it’s wet or dry outside, we at OSJCT feel that activities are essential in providing the best caring environment to live in.
Hobbies don’t simply stop when living with us at The Cedars. We have a dedicated Activities Co-ordinator who works closely with our residents to create a programme of fulfilling activities and events, tailored around each resident’s requests, hobbies and interests. The programme of events and activities provide a source of fun and laughter, to help each resident live their life to the full and make new friendships.
Here is a sample of activities on offer:
- Trips to garden centres, cafés, pubs, sporting events, National Trust parks, wildlife parks, aquariums and museums.
- Visit from Pets as Therapy Dogs
- Exercise and wellness activities, for example Seated Yoga, Zumba • Board game competitions and quizzes
- Music therapy sessions
- Arts and crafts
- Communal Church services
With so many well-being activities for body and mind on offer, we also recognise that everyone needs some personal space for relaxation and mindfulness for personal reflection. The cosy lounges offer an opportunity for some quiet time or to host family and friends.
Many of the activities feature Reminiscence Therapy to aid those living with Dementia to remember events, people and places using sight, touch, taste, smell and sound.
As we located within a vibrant community, there's never a dull moment. We run regular activities for all to join in:
- Coffee mornings
- Care Home Open Day
- Summer and Autumn fetes
- Christmas parties
