There is an excellent team of carers and nurses who I can see actually "care" about the residents and relatives. I feel very fortunate to have found such a great environment for my mother to be looked after in.


The lady who looks after the activities is excellent so we as a family are very happy to say to others this home is both caring and safe. My mother is happy so we are all happy.


The care and attention that was given was wonderful. Full marks to everybody in the home.


Comfortable and caring. Staff are competent and caring, always ready to help.


The staff are wonderful and the care my husband receives is excellent.


Our understanding of Dementia

Dementia is an umbrella term used to describe a variety of brain illnesses that affect thinking, memory, behaviour and even the ability to perform everyday activities. These disorders are usually chronic and/or progressive.

There are many different types of dementia, and some people may suffer from a combination of types. Whatever the diagnosis, each person will experience their disorder in their own unique way.

Some Facts

  • People with dementia can still live well. There may be no cure for the disorder, but treatments, and specialised care can help ease symptoms and manage daily life. With the right support, a person can remain active, and continue to do things they find meaningful. Find out More
  • It is caused by neurological diseases, like Alzheimer’s. These diseases alter the chemistry and structure of the brain, or can result in nerve damage. Different types of brain diseases damage different parts of the brain, resulting in different types of dementia. Find out More
  • It involves more than just memory loss. Though a common feature, memory loss is not the only symptom, and in some cases isn’t even an early sign. The disorder can hinder speech, perception, emotions and even behaviour. Find out More
  • It is not a natural part of aging. What’s more, although this disorder mainly affects the elderly, it’s not uncommon among younger people. According to the Alzheimer’s Society, over 40,000 people under the age of 65 have early-onset dementia in the UK.

Dementia Care

Caring for a person with developing dementia requires specialist understanding. Particularly since the disorder manifests differently in each individual, and symptoms change over time. At Cedars Care Group homes we provide person-centred care. Our professionally trained staff offer residents and their families one-to-one support on what can often be a difficult journey.

What our families say

"My wonderful late husband stayed at this beautiful home recently. The care was outstanding. I spent some time with the clinical manager and her nursing team whilst he was very poorly and the new care manager, my apologies her name escapes me. All extremely caring and knowledgable. What would have normally been a very distressing time for us all was made into a loving one by the staff. I would like to thank the clinical manager for giving me that extra time, I was such a mess, her empathy meant a lot to us all. I only have one constructive criticism and that is the lady in the office is too quick on the phone and in person, sometimes we need more time as climbing those awful stairs at my age was a chore. Maybe the offices would be better suited where families and residents can access them. I do talk to all my friends about the lovely experience we have had, thank you."
