Dad has been at The Cedars since the end of April and has been welcomed into the home by the staff and many of the residents. The home is very friendly and nicely decorated and has a lovely atmosphere. The staff go the extra mile for Dad and he is clearly very comfortable with them. The home environment is safe and the main lounge is always a popul… ar gathering place for residents. The food is lovely, fresh and home cooked with lots of variety. There are plenty of activities and a nice outdoor seating area. The carers are so friendly and approachable and the management are efficient and very proactive. In short, The Cedars is a lovely care home which I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

I am very pleased with the care and attention my husband has received since moving into The Cedars seven weeks ago. He has been excellently looked after in a care home that is lovely, as are the staff who are approachable and show thought and attention to their residents. The home-cooked food is always tasty and presented well and looks delicious. … Management are very approachable and extremely quick to sort any problems. First-class care home!

My mum was here when Covid struck. The care and attention she received was absolutely amazing. The staff are second to none. They keep the family well-informed and up-to-date with everything. Cannot recommend this home enough. Keep up the good work.

My mother has been living at the home for 4 months now and the change in her is fantastic. She has regained some of her independence that she previously lost when she was living alone. When I visit she appears happy and content and does speak very highly of the care staff. The staff are welcoming and friendly and treat my mother with dignity and re… spect and are attentive to her needs which is all that I could ask for. The Manager has been very supportive in helping us through the process of arranging 24 hour care and nothing is too much trouble. I would highly recommend the home for anyone looking for first class care for their relative.

The staff are all brilliant. Very caring and I am confident that my mother is being looked after very well when I am not there. The home is kept very clean and there is no lingering smell of urine as I've encountered in other care homes.

Lovely clean home with caring staff who know my nana well and look after her very well. The entertainment is nice and they get the residents involved especially with the singing and dancing. I know all the family are pleased with her care.
