About Us


Cedarwood Services is owned and managed by Alyson Graham. Alyson has 20 years of experience working with seniors in community and institutional settings as a Health Care Aide, Activity Director, Assistant Administrator, and Executive Director. She also has degrees in both Gerontology and Sociology from McMaster University.

Alyson was in senior management roles at Blackburn Lodge Seniors Residence in Ottawa for ten years before starting her own business. She has worked as a health care aide at both Maxville Manor and Glen-Stor-Dun Lodge, and as an Activity Director, Assistant Administrator, and Executive Director at Blackburn Lodge.

In the words of David Porter, President and Owner of Blackburn Lodge:

“Alyson’s ability to excel at whatever she does starts with her personality. She is one of the most caring and likeable people I know. Add to that her wide-ranging competence and skill in communication and working with people, her leadership-by-example and motivational abilities in supervising employees, her level-headed and clear thinking approach to quickly analysing and solving problems, and her unshakable commitment to thoroughness and quality in her work, and you have the person I remember as the best senior manager I had in my 25 years of retirement home management.”

Every member of the Cedarwood team is fully qualified to provide the services you require. Our team undergoes thorough criminal background checks, they have clear driver’s abstracts, and exemplary personal and professional references. Cedarwood Services is fully insured.
