About The Cedar Philosophy
We have pioneered an innovative and creative approach which promotes dignity and respect for those living with all forms of dementia.
The Cedar Philosophy, has been developed by us alongside a team of experts from the University of Stirling. It focuses on an individual’s wellbeing and personal needs, not just their nursing requirements.
We work closely with local GPs, consultants and health professionals to offer our residents the best possible care at our homes in Shropshire and Cheshire.
The approach aims to reduce anxiety and stress, and can lead to real therapeutic benefits. In many cases this can mean a reduction in medication as residents are calm and content.
This pioneering thinking uses a range of innovative and creative ideas that are tailored to an individual’s needs, medical background and life story. For all of us our life history has an impact on how we wish to live our day-to-day lives and this is even more the case for those living with dementia. Whether it’s the job they did, the seaside holidays they took as children or getting married to the love of their life, through the Cedar Philosophy and specialist training we evoke and unlock those special moments.
We feel that if we know the person, then we can provide the care they need.
Specialist reminiscence rooms with 1950’s Ercol furniture and designated memory zones with familiar objects stimulate the senses and create positive associations and interaction.
The philosophy encourages residents to live to their own timescales, continue to have a sense of purpose and be part of warm, accepting and friendly community.
We would love to hear your story, so please do get in touch if you would like to speak to us.

March at Morris Care
As we look forward to spring, March brings some exciting social activities and clubs for our residents to enjoy.
How to keep warm in winter
Just as we thought spring was approaching, temperatures across Shropshire and Cheshire are set to plummet this weekend and over the course of next week, with temperatures reaching as low as -8°C in the middle of the day. A cold snap referred to as “beast from the east” is set to plunge temperatures in the UK below freezing as cold air makes its way over from Siberia.
Bilingualism and Dementia
Various studies state that learning a second language is much easier when you are younger and in the “critical period”, when your brain is more absorbent. This could be the reason why many of us shy away from taking on the challenge of learning another language in our later years, because we think it will be too hard or too time consuming.
