Assisted Living is for people who value their independence, but need some help with day-to-day activities, such as dressing, bathing or taking medication. Exactly how much care is needed, will depending on the unique needs of the individual. Residents still have access to all the social activities should they wish to take part!
Every Sunrise care home features a dedicated, specialised dementia care area that is devoted entirely to residents who are living with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other forms of memory loss. We call it our ‘Reminiscence’ neighbourhood.
It’s the same high quality, individualised care that you’ll find in the assisted living neighbourhoods of our care homes – but with a specialised focus on caring for people who are living with the effects of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia.
Sunrise of Frognal House offers Independent Living to a limited number of residents. As the name suggests, Independent Living is a lifestyle that can require no care services – although they are still available should you need them.
Independent Living is like living in your own home, but without the worry of maintenance, chores or even the cooking.

Respite care stays are a great option for a short stay in one of our Sunrise communities. This could be because a caregiver is unavailable for a short period due to work, family commitments or a planned holiday. A respite stay at a Sunrise community is also a viable option for extra assistance following a recent hospital visit.
Many Sunrise care homes are registered for nursing care – just like an ordinary nursing home for the elderly, but with all the Sunrise Signatures that make life more enjoyable in your later years. Older people who are recovering from an injury or hospitalization, or have a long-term condition can benefit from nursing care.
