The care Mum receives is excellent. After 4 months in Reminisce Mum looks so much better. The food is excellent, lots of activities and outings a couple of times a week. Dementia residents are encouraged to join in activities downstairs as well and Mum loves the singer/music they have each week. The whole building is spacious and welcoming and feels like home from home with traditional comfortable furnishings and carpets rather than being too modern and clinical. Nothing is too much trouble and they are adaptable and flexible. I am encouraged to phone or visit whenever I like and can take Mum on outings anytime. A lot of Reminisce staff seem to have been there a good few years and tell me they view residents as 'family'. They are experienced, kind, caring and compassionate and seem to have endless patience and reassurance. Not only the Reminisce staff - the administrative staff also are very supportive and take an active interest.

Our sister/sister-in-law has been at Sunrise of Edgbaston for 9 months. We are delighted with the care she receives. The staff are kind, courteous and patient with her. They understand her condition of vascular dementia and treat her accordingly. She has integrated well because of the care and friendliness she receives. We are more than satisfied with everything.

It was difficult to find a suitable home from home for my cousin who had lived in a beautiful flat with her mother. After her mother's death, we searched and searched finding every place totally unsuitable. Then we were told about Sunrise Edgbaston. I had no expectations this time as we looked around but after a tour plus a long conversation with the wonderful manager and head of nursing I knew it was just right, especially as there was no smell as we entered the hallway which we had found in other homes we looked at. My cousin was hard to sway but after a visit and meeting with the manager and nurse, she signed the documents. Sunrise has been amazing the care, nursing friendliness and food have been faultless. The staff go out of their way to care and spend time listening to my cousin never in a hurry or brush her off. Every concern is shared with me by a phone call and my calls are always returned. My cousin has improved since entering the home, her demeanour is good.

My mother moved to the Reminiscence Unit at Sunrise of Edgbaston on January 3rd 2017. This followed the sudden closure of the care home she was in. It is still early days but so far we are so pleased with the welcome we have all had from the staff, who are unfailingly cheerful, polite and reassuring. The Dementia Community Relations dealt with the clerical and financial side of things efficiently and everything seemed to go really smoothly. It is such a relief that all the staff on the Reminiscence Unit are trained in dementia care and they are so quiet and gentle with the residents. The unit is calm and peaceful and every effort is made to maintain the dignity of the residents. My mother is starting to settle in her new surroundings and we feel confident that she will be well cared for. Our aim for her is that she will be "contented" and we think this may be achievable at Sunrise.
