Welcome to Cedars Care Home
Everyone at Cedars gets a warm welcome, whether they need nursing or dementia support or simply a caring place to call home.
Found in the Doncaster suburb of Balby, Cedars is very much part of that community with local schools and churches paying us regular visits.
Here residents are considered part of the family. We put their health and happiness at the heart of everything we do, and our dedicated team of nurses and carers actively encourage them to take part in all decisions - contributing to everything from the way their rooms look to the therapies they receive.
Residents enjoy their own en-suite bedrooms, with many of the comfy rooms big enough to share with companions. Those with dementia are cared for in recently redecorated surroundings.
Life at Cedars Care Home
Our aim is to help people stay as well as they can for as long as they can, so we understand the importance of being active and entertained.
At Cedars we believe residents should be able to pursue their own hobbies as well as join in with group activities if they wish.
There is so much to choose from here, including crafts, gardening, quizzes and outings to local shops and landmarks. Residents can also choose from the busy events calendar, where our team go the extra mile to celebrate important dates throughout the year.
My dad has been at Cedars for a while now and I happy and well cared for. The staff are always helpful and my dad loves it here.

As delayed transfers of care remain at record highs, how can we reduce unnecessary hospital stays for older people? That was the key question at an HSJ event held in association with Four Seasons Health Care.
The roundtable heard that the healthcare system often finds reasons not to deal with care home residents and looked at the success of an innovative collaboration between the NHS and care homes in Belfast.
With a collaborative approach between care homes and the NHS, older people are able to leave hospital and receive expert care, whilst assessing whether their long term future would be in their current home or a local care home. “The idea is that it would provide short term rehabilitation in conjunction with the two trusts in that area. The joint partnerships with the trusts I’ve worked with have just been amazing, and that’s what makes it work”, explained Janice Brown, Four Seasons’ regional manager for the Belfast and Newtownabbey area.
In addition to the improvements from a collaborative solution, South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust reported that the joint partnership approach of providing a bed in a care home reduced their yearly cost by more than half.

Everyone at Cedars Care Home in Doncaster raised money to help in the fight against dementia.
Residents and their relatives took part in various activities thorough Dementia Awareness Week including cake decorating, reminiscing about the ‘good old days’ looking at photos of times gone by, going to the vintage sweet shop, making peg dollies, being entertained by a local singer, a sophisticated tea party all topped off with a raffle.
Angelina Neeson, Home Manager said: “Thanks to everyone’s contributions we managed to raise £65 on the raffle. Over £270 was raised from the funeral collection of one of our residents, who used to live on the dementia unit for several years, who sadly passed away. I’d like to thank everyone for their kind donations as it means we can donate £338 to the Dementia UK Charity.”
