The Cedars has nine bedrooms, two substantial airy lounge areas, a dining room, a utility room, and a tranquil garden which offers a relaxing atmosphere and a quiet retreat. A large wooden lodge is situated in the garden which is used for arts and crafts, computer activities, watching films and relaxing. Our aromatherapist also uses the lodge when making visits.
Everyone is encouraged and supported to use our two kitchens to prepare and cook meals for themselves and others. People are encouraged to personalise their bedrooms, to make the service as homely as possible.
Developing independence skills
The people that we support are encouraged through their Person Centred Plans to achieve their goals and aspirations. This might be attending college to access courses such as cooking, art and daily living skills, or it could be work placements and other day opportunities in line with their goals.
Within the service we continually and consistently promote the development of social skills, independent living and personal responsibility. Individuals learn these skills and responsibilities through tasks such as shopping, cooking, doing laundry and cleaning.
The Cedars is situated within a residential area of Gloucester, with excellent local amenities and the city centre just a few minutes away by foot. Local buses pass nearby every 10 minutes and the train station is also within easy reach.
