About Cedar Trust
They are a family-owned local company that has been caring for people in Gloucestershire for over three decades. They opened their first home in Cheltenham in 1986 with one aim in mind – to look after everyone in a warm, compassionate, safe and friendly environment.
Although they offer the very best care for you or your loved one, their five homes are much more than just about caring; they are about enriching people’s lives at a time when they thought that might not be easily achieved. They have been, and remain, proud to be able to help people find happiness, friendship and fulfilment in their later years.
