Cedar Park Nursing and Residential Home

Cedar Park is a listed Georgian building, which creates a striking impression in a quiet residential street in Oldfield. Its elevated position affords beautiful views from almost every aspect.

Cedar Park operates as two separate wings: the Georgian wing and the Orchard wing. The Georgian wing is an elegant building retaining many period features. The Orchard wing is relatively modern and faces an apple orchard. Both wings open onto well tended gardens and consist of conservatories where our residents can enjoy the stunning views.

The home is part of a bustling community, with Moorland Road, St Bartholomew’s Church and Bear Flat within walking distance. Just outside the home is a bus stop that links directly to the city centre and Bath bus station.

Type of Care

General Nursing

Both Georgian wing (32 bedrooms) and Orchard wing (20 bedrooms) provide general nursing care for people with enduring physical conditions or conditions resulting in physical disability. The primary aim is to assess needs in the context of remaining abilities, habits and lifestyle. Support or assistance is then provided in daily living according to individual choices and preferences while clinical health risks are managed.

We can facilitate long or short term care, respite, convalescence, placement whilst waiting for specialist external assessment for a permanent care package, hospital admission avoidance and packages for people with complex or unstable needs (Continuing Healthcare). Dedicated care is also provided for people who are approaching the end of their life.

What CQC said about us: Excerpts from the April 2015 Inspection Report

Visitors spoke positively about the care and support their relative received. One visitor said their relative was always treated with respect and staff were very polite and gentle with her. Another visitor said "the staff here are marvellous, they really care. They’re [people] not treated like residents, they’re family." Three relatives told us they felt welcomed and could visit whenever they wanted to. One relative said “we can come and go at all hours”

One person said “the staff are very good; they look after me and are kind and very nice.” Another person told us “I have absolutely nothing bad to say, staff are good and kind and will help me with anything I need help with.

A registered nurse told us they appreciated having a good staff team who really cared about the people they supported. They said “without good carers you’re at zero without a chance. They are my eyes and I need to count on them to monitor and raise issues. Luckily I can do this, they’re really good”.

Staff were aware of people’s needs and were committed to their well-being. People had access to varied social activities based on their personal preferences. Staff were clear about promoting people’s privacy and dignity and consistently demonstrated this within their practice.
