Home news

Residents, colleagues and members of the local community have joined together in celebration at the official opening of Cedrus House care home, on Creeting Road East in the Cedars Park area of Stowmarket.

The official opening event took place on Tuesday 21st July, where residents David Burrows and Jean Wallis cut the ribbon alongside Suffolk County Council’s cabinet member for adult care, Councillor Beccy Hopfensperger and the chairman of Suffolk County Council, Councillor Jane Storey.

Michelle Webster, Cedrus House home manager, said: “The opening event was such a special day and we were all delighted to welcome so many members of the local community to join us in our celebrations.

“Cedrus House and the adjacent Cedrus Club have been open for a few months now and it’s great to see how quickly they have become established within the Cedars Park community. Following the success of our recent Health and Wellbeing event in the Club, we look forward to hosting many more informative events for those living locally who may be caring for loved ones at home, including a Butterfly Afternoon Tea on Friday 24th July, from 2.30-4pm, and an ‘Understanding dementia’ event in September.”

Going forward, we’ve got a range of fun and interesting activities and events planned for our residents and Club members to enjoy, as well as informative events and support for those living locally.”

Councillor Beccy Hopfensperger, Suffolk County Council’s Cabinet Member for Adult Care, said: “It was wonderful to attend the opening of Cedrus House. Some residents have been living here at the new home for a little while now so it was great to recognise the new facility as being officially open. The Cedrus Club site also offers a range of activities for those coming along for day care services. This modern, fit for purpose home offers residents and visitors good quality services and a friendly and welcoming atmosphere.”
