I came to live at Sunrise two and a half years ago. I had been very unwell before and I was glad I made the decision to stay, it was the best decision I have made. I have been shown much love and care from all concerned and each day is filled with lovely activities. If you wish to take part. We are all like one big family. Thank you - Patricia

I first came to Sunrise of Bassett (Southampton) in 2013. I was not very well and came in for a month's rest. During this time I would have gone home as it took a while to settle. I really LOVE being here and wouldn't want to go anywhere else. I really have a lovely time, it's like being in a big family. Everyone is so kind and caring.
I have lived here for 16 months. I am happy. This is hotel-living with care provided when required. I am relieved not to be responsible any more for looking after my home, shopping, cleaning, cooking and laundry.
I am mobile and go out for a walk every day.
I enjoy the activities provided. Although my general health is very good, it's comforting to know that there is a nurse and carers here night and day. I'm surrounded by lovely people - residents and staff.
As regards care homes, I say to you;
No need to visit the rest, this is the best!
