It was a Christmas to remember for the Cedars Care Group family, as one of our residents received the best gift he could have asked for: a reunion with his old mate Jamie Carragher.

Hailing from Bootle, Kenny worked as a caretaker at Melwood and Anfield for many years. He knew Jamie from back when the Liverpool legend used to be a young trainee. 72 year-old Kenny now has dementia and struggles with his memory. But when Jamie walked into the family room at our Southport care home, Woodlands Manor on the weekend after Christmas, Kenny had no trouble remembering him.

While there is no known cure for dementia, there are many forms of therapy that can help reduce or manage the symptoms. At Cedars Care Group homes, we are always looking for new ways to improve the life quality of our residents with dementia. This month at our Southport Care Home, Cedar Grange, we hosted a trial session with an interactive system called the Tovertafel –or ‘Magic Table.’

This month, residents at our Southport care home, Cedar Grange, took part in the Five Senses Challenge for Alzheimer’s and dementia.

Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia is a progressive disease, which directly affects the mind, and therefore also, indirectly affects the body. As certain parts of the brain gradually deteriorate, the body fails to respond as it should, even if the person is otherwise physically healthy. This is also true of the five senses, which can degenerate with the progression of dementia.

Staff from our Southport care homes, Cedar Grange and Woodlands Manor, came together to take part in a very special voyage into the human mind affected by dementia. The training was provided by Training 2 Care through the Xperience Training mobile dementia simulator, which came to Woodlands Manor for us. Staff who took part felt it was the perfect opportunity to experience the symptoms that some of the residents they are caring for are living with on a day to day basis. The results were very affective, with participants saying they felt ‘challenged and vulnerable’ and even scared during the simulation.

Music is fast becoming a key feature of dementia care today. At Cedars Care Group homes, music therapy is a key aspect of the care and support we provide.

Earlier this month at Cedar Grange Care Centre, our residents Helen, Neville and Joyce took part in a Music Therapy activity. All three were able to play the piano beautifully, relying only on memory, and the skills they had developed from piano lessons they’d taken when they were very young. Helen, Neville and Joyce were overjoyed to know they could still play so well, and inspired by the session to no end.
