Forest Care is a family owned and managed company, currently with four care homes that are rated either ‘Good’ or ‘Outstanding’ by the CQC in Hampshire and Surrey. With over 30 years’ experience, our focus is to ensure we provide the very highest standards of care to our residents, and their ongoing welfare, comfort and needs are central to how Cedar Lodge, Oak Lodge, Rowan Lodge and Holly Lodge are run. We believe our homes should be a home in the truest sense, and we do everything we can to make our residents feel at home from the outset.
