A lovely place, looks like a grand hotel. Staff are friendly and caring.
My mother entered the home in December 2017. The staff were very understanding in a difficult situation. Mother has settled in very well with no problems. We have had daily contact to begin with, staff always giving us time to discuss any concerns we may have had.
Sunrise has a great atmosphere, a very positive, can-do attitude and residents look very happy and relaxed.

How likely would you be to recommend Sunrise of Eastbourne? Extremely Likely
I was greatly impressed with Sunrise of Eastbourne.
It is a very attractive building with lovely gardens.
The food is excellent with lots of options. Beautifully presented, healthy and delicious.
But most importantly the care is second to none.
I was treated with dignity and respect at all times by kind and compassionate carers.
As I have MS my body is not always easy to move-particularly in the morning-but the carers were patient and kind at all times.
Quite simply if you looked up the definition of the word care in a dictionary and you will see Sunrise of Eastbourne care home.
Thank you all very much.
I have returned home feeling stronger both mentally and physically.
Review relates to November 2017.
My husband, who has advanced Alzheimer's, arrived at Sunrise after 10 days in hospital having had a fall, and subsequently a seizure. Technically he was categorised as palliative and requiring end of life care. My perception of the staff is that they have extraordinary patience but also demonstrate genuine compassion and I'm sure that this has contributed to my husband's growing strength and energy. After just a month his medication was reviewed and it has been arranged for the Speech and Language Therapy team to assess him for a return to normal food. I sense a positive culture at Sunrise and feel confident that my husband's needs are, despite the challenges, being met as well as they can be. I have no hesitation in recommending Sunrise for dementia care.
I am extremely happy with the care my mother is receiving at Sunrise. The whole process of trying to find permanent residential care is very traumatic and we viewed many care homes in our search, none could compare to Sunrise. The layout has been thoughtfully and creatively designed to be a stimulating environment for someone suffering from dementia, and the attention-to-detail felt truly person-centred. The whole process was so smooth and staff have been helpful and supportive to our family every step of the way. It gives my sister and I great comfort to know our mum is being well looked after in a place that feels 'alive' and stimulating. In this area, I don't think there is any other service that can compare to the warm, welcoming and person-centred quality care that Sunrise offers.
Review relates to October 2017.
A big thank you to all the care staff and many residents mum has made friends with. We move from Eastbourne Sunrise to Purley so now will be nearer family.
