Mom deserved to live like a queen. Cedar Creek offers the perfect environment providing for every need of the residents
Words aren’t enough to express our gratitude to ALL of you at Cedar Creek, from employees to every resident we met. Our mother’s, Velma Moore, time living there was superb in every way. She made a new friend with everyone she interacted with and each relationship was unique and brought her great joy. Velma has no idea of how she touched the lives of others with her unconditional love and constant kind words. Sadly, it’s only after the loss of a loved one that we more fully recognize the gifts and blessings of genuine friendship that they have shared with us. Thank you for allowing her a beautiful place to live in comfort and ease for the last year of her life. We reminded her often that she deserved to live like a queen after serving others for many long years. Cedar Creek offers the perfect environment providing for every need of the residents; while in turn they can easily feel self-worth by serving their neighbors, including staff, with appreciation, happiness, and friendship. Also, thank you for the beautiful plant you sent. It reminds us daily of Velma’s love for everything floral as we pass by it each day! Hugs to all!

As needs change, so does the level of attention
I toured every retirement community in Fresno, Clovis and Madera. Cedar Creek was the best value by far. I like the continuity of care. As needs change, so does the level of attention. My dad was well cared for in his final days and throughout the progression of his illness he never had to move. Mom was able to be close to him without the responsibility of being his caregiver. She now has the support of friends and staff.
I Am So Grateful
I am so grateful that a community of this caliber is right here in Madera.
I can get my hair and nails done in the salon, see a podiatrist, have communion and church services without leaving the neighborhood. There are plenty of activities and the desserts are awesome!
Just wanted to say thanks so much for making us feel welcome at Cedar Creek. Also please thank your employees for their kindness. We are looking forward to our new home.

An adventure in S.F.
It was a gorgeous morning with a mixture of that pre-fall feeling and the end of summertime, when five adventurous people entered the Cedar Creek van for a much anticipated trip to the San Francisco Bay Area. There was not a cloud in the sky, and that azure blue sky followed us all the way to San Francisco. A jacket was not needed on the entire day trip. There was not any fog or wind, and when we first saw the bay it was calm and the water’s color seemed to accent the white of the sailboats that began to venture out. No one seemed to be in a hurry, and the traffic moved at a comfortable pace. We were on our way to the wharf and Pier 39 for our much anticipated seafood meal. We soon found that there were crowds of others with the same plans as ours. That warm weather of 98 degrees was not anticipated by these five travelers, who decided not to spend too much time searching for just the right place to eat. Instead, the five travelers focused on finding a cool, comfortable place to sit down and eat. We were quickly successful to find that perfect place, but it did not feature seafood. As a sailor would say, “Any old port in a storm.” This place featured salads and hamburgers, which quickly began to appeal to these warm and hungry travelers. Even with so many other tourists, we found an excellent parking place for the van. The next part of our adventure was just beginning. Getting to the Bay Bridge to get back to Cedar Creek in a timely manner presented a problem. That is when the van and our driver, Ed, encountered a situation that one has to experience to truly understand its magnitude. We became a sea of automobiles five lanes wide moving slower than a fast-moving snail. It was stop and go for at least two hours, and we only covered a short 2 miles. This was typical of our progress for miles. We stopped for gas after we crossed the bridge, and that was when I saw two homeless men sitting on a bridge. Several people asked about the number of homeless there. That was my unofficial count. This adventurous group arrived back at Cedar Creek at 7:30 p.m. Upon our arrival, there were boxed dinners waiting for us at the desk in the lobby. I would not have missed this trip. It was a great outing with lots of new adventures. My wish is to have a repeat trip and to finally get that oyster dinner I had anticipated before, during and after this adventure.
Great people, nice staff…it’s home
I’ve lived here 7 years. It’s beautiful, great people, nice staff…it’s home.
Improved our quality of life
Moving to Cedar Creek has improved my Mom’s quality of life by 100% and MY life by 1000%. I love Cedar Creek.

Just Another Ho-Hum Day at Cedar Creek
It was a chore to get out of that warm and cozy bed to get a banana and a cup of coffee to sustain my body and trod to the main building, hike up that beautiful stair case to the salon for my weekly shampoo and set. When that mission was successfully accomplished next on the agenda was a quick stop by the library to shelf books, straighten the newspapers and get rid of half eaten cookies and partially filled cups of cold coffee. Then on to my bungalow just in time to see that very efficient house keeper leaving a sparkling and clean smelling home. It was now time to get dressed and prepare for an exciting lunch adventure at the Vineyard. This proved to be a great trip with many fantastic people, great conversations, gourmet food and a very relaxing luncheon with very comfortable transportation provided by the Cedar Creek van and the very able chauffer.
One would think that would enough excitement for this senior citizen but more was to come. The movie JOY being shown and overstuffed chairs were neatly placed in our now mini theatre. Bags of hot popcorn were waiting in the chairs for nibbling on while relaxing in this quiet environment. About half way through the movie two very lovely ladies quietly appeared with wine and cheese for us to also enjoy. It would appear that this fun filled day should come to an end. Cedar Creek continued to provide more!
After checking the Cedar Creek Dining Room Menu I became aware that Breaded Shrimp was on the Friday menu. I was immediately convinced that my day was not ending. Off I went to the elegant dining room and seated myself at a table with a group of friends. The waitress took one look at me and said would you like five shrimp and a small garden salad with blue cheese dressing? My reputation for enjoying sea food was following me. Almost immediately this delicious meal was placed before me. I enjoyed every bite!
A Black Cow was also on the menu. I ordered a White Cow, better known in some circles as a Root Beer Float, to go. My evening was then spent in my recliner, watching television and sipping on my delicious White Cow.
