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.


About Us

At Cedars Care Group, our nursing, care and residential homes are small and intimate. Many of our residents and their families describe our homes as, ‘a home away from home.’ That to us is testament that dementia, Alzheimer’s and old age need not be as bleak or frightening as it might initially feel.

A family run company, Cedars Care Group began in 2003, when Ty and Sarah Yilmaz purchased their first care home. Having elderly parents of their own at the time, their work was driven by a genuine empathy for residents and their families. With Ty managing operations and Sarah in charge of finance and administration, they put heart, sweat and tears into building a standard of care they’d feel comfortable entrusting their own parents to.

Today, Cedars Care Group runs seven boutique homes across the UK, offering nursing, dementia and elderly care. Our specialist carers provide personalised support and stimulating activities that enable each resident to lead a fulfilling life. Sarah (Director) and Ty (CEO) still play a major role in the day-to-day running of the company. Both have a hands-on approach to managing staff of all levels. To that end, they can often be found in the kitchens of our homes, cooking a Christmas dinner for residents, or in the gardens cutting grass.

Ty is onsite at the homes throughout the working week, and sometimes even weekends. He knows the residents by name and works alongside staff to ensure Cedars Care Group is providing the highest level of personalised service at each and every home. Read CEO’s Message

What our families say

My mother has been resident here for almost a year. She has vascular dementia which is getting worse. Prior to entering Woodlands Manor, she was becoming gradually more insular and avoiding people. When my father died, I moved in with her as a full-time carer, his death caused a huge decline in her mental health to a point where she forgot him altogether, she became more frustrated with everyday tasks and eventually became quite violent, forcing a move to residential care. When she moved into Woodlands for a few weeks respite while awaiting assessment, she started to come out of her shell. The staff were stimulating her interest in other people, she was in a caring and socially acceptable (to her) 'hotel' with minimal need to go home (her dementia had taken her back 60 years to her parents' house). She is quite happy now, being looked after hand and foot, with active social interaction, good food and health care and a stable staffing structure without too much change
