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.

Choosing the right home
Choosing which residential care home is best suited for your loved one is something that demands careful thought.
One of the ways Morris Care help is by offering trial stays, which aim to give peace of mind and allow you to experience our care first hand. During the trial stay you are able to come and visit the home whenever you like to ensure that your loved one is comfortable and happy and importantly, being cared for just how you would like.
