Cedar House, Norwich, Norfolk

Cedar House is located in the picturesque village of Yelverton, 2.5 miles south east of the cathedral city of Norwich, just off the main road between Great Yarmouth and Norwich. Cedar House is a fine period property providing residential and nursing care for up to 24 elderly people.

This beautiful former Rectory dates in part back to the 13th century and close to St Mary’s church. Although the current building dates from the 1800’s, records show that property existed here as far back as the 11th century when monks used it as a stopping-off point en route from Canterbury. The lovely half-acre garden with its beautiful trees is a particular feature. Boasting a summerhouse, gazebo and patio area, it is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy fine weather.

Small, friendly and with exceptionally high standards of care, sums up Cedar House. The main building has been sympathetically extended, converted and decorated to reflect its Victorian heritage. At the same time, along with the purpose-built annex, the property is equipped with every modern facility to ensure the best in comfort and care.

Uncle had to go into a caring home when he left the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital. I was given a list of caring homes I went to three other homes but when I came to look at Cedar House the welcome was outstanding I was showed round the home and you were put at ease. Soon as I left Cedar House I knew that it was the home for my uncle I did not look at anymore homes and the management team sorted everything out with the hospital. Also what I like is that they keep you informed what is happening with him, I have told all the family and friends how good Cedar House is and how well my uncle has settled into his new home.

Cedar House

Cedar House has seen many improvements in recent months, including an increase in staffing levels and redecoration, throughout the home. There is a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere with regular activities for residents who wish to part-take. The chef takes a pride in providing well-presented and nutritious meals. Staff have been especially kind to my mother since my fathers recent death; they are vigilant in her care and keep me well-informed regarding her state of health. The home is well managed with a refurbished laundry and a high standard of cleanliness.

I am very grateful for the wonderful care my husband received during the year he spent at Cedar House. Most of the staff are dedicated to giving residents the best possible care, treating them with respect and compassion. There has been noticeable improvement of standard at Cedar House under the management of Ruth, with much better organisation and levels of cleanliness and tidiness. I spent at least six hours a day visiting my husband and was made welcome by the lovely staff that they became like a family to me. This was show by the fantastic care that my husband was given in the last few days of his life and all the love and support given to me by the wonderful staff.

Cedar House

Compared to other care homes we have visited recently - Cedar House has a very homely, friendly atmosphere. The staff are always welcoming and make you feel like one of the "family". The residents are well looked after and the home is always tidy and fresh. The standards in the home have been raised in recent months - decorations are ongoing and new carpets and curtains are to be fitted. The gardens are pleasant and the residents enjoy sitting outside in good weather to experience the relaxing atmosphere.

My partner has severe alzheimers disease and needs 24/7 care as she is unable to wash, feed, dress herself and is unable to move at all without the use of a hoist and a wheelchair. When I visited Cedar home for the first time and I was impressed by the empathy and care given to all the residents on this and all my visits and I was particularly impressed by the manager Debbie and her attitude towards her staff and residents.

Husband enjoyed his stay very much and said he would go back again. The food was very good. The only problem was I had to go back with a leaflet as I wasn't told I needed it and I was phoned for the NHS number when I was away. The staff are extremely pleasant, and overall there is a nice atmosphere.
