Nina Wright, Home Manager at The Cedars and Larches Care Home responded to this review on 09 Feb 2016:

Hello there, thank you for your review of The Cedars and Larches - we appreciate all comments and feedback. In relation to the increase in costs I feel it would be best if we talk in more detail face to face about the reasons behind this. I will be in touch - thank you again.

My wife, as an ex nurse, is cared for in an excellent manner, and myself and my family feel very supported in this care home. I am happy to know my wife is local to where I live.

My friend and former neighbour, Vic, has been a resident of Cedars for more than 5 years. Staff have always been kind to Vic, as well as cheerful. Their good humour is a valuable tool in taking the worries which beset people who suffer from dementia. I know he appreciates them because he tells me so. That supports my view which has formed after visiting at least weekly and sometimes at a much higher frequency. He also loves the food.
