The Cedars Nursing Home

I recommend The Cedars Nursing Home because the staff are dedicated to their jobs of looking after their residents. Without exception, they are friendly, caring , understanding of relatives' problems as well as those of the residents. Throughout the months I have been visiting my husband at The Cedars, I have seen smiling faces and felt the caring ways at all times. Nothing seems too much for the staff to do to make life more tolerable for our loved ones who are suffering from such terrible diseases. I cannot speak too highly of the care received at this Nursing Home.

The Cedars Nursing Home

This is a very well run and clean care home. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the standard of care is high. There is good contact with me about my aunt's well-fare and a good opportunity to provided feedback on the quality of service and care. My aunt's condition - total blindness and dementia - can be a challenge but the carers are coping well and she seems to have settled well in the home. I recommend this care home highly.

The Cedars Nursing Home

Excellent care. Staff been there since opening over 15 years happy atmosphere. Despite the fact that residents are mostly 'away with the fairies' the staff go to enormous trouble to have fun days i.e. Royal Ascot Tea Part, day at the seaside party etc. Food all home cooked, no routine so residents can have a 'duvet day'. My mother was on a lace drip of antibiotics and sleeping pills when admitted from another home. Gradually recovered off everything. Couldn't recommend more happily.

The Cedars Nursing Home

My friend was wonderfully cared for throughout her stay at the Cedars. Her sensory deprivation (both loss of sight and hearing) did not get in the way of the wonderful way all staff managed to communicate and involve her in every aspect of her care. She was valued for the person she was. She died very peacefully surrounded with love and superb care.
