I am really happy with the care my Dad receives for a life with dementia and in his 90's. He needs a high level of care and monitoring. When a carer speaks to him a big smile appears on his face. His life is varied by activities, entertainment, trips out and good food. I am kept informed of his health and any changes. The carers amaze me with the level of patience and kindness. It's great to see a mix of male and female carers too. The atmosphere is one of happiness and I enjoy visiting him because it feels like he is in an extended family.

Review relates to May 2019.
The home is clean, modern, warm, beautifully decorated and furnished, like being in a very nice hotel, with a lovely relaxed homely feel, we knew from the first time we visited it was the right place for Mum and Dad. Care on Reminiscence is excellent, we had complete peace of mind they were well cared for and supported with good liaison/support for us as family. As well as dementia, Mum had a difficult healthcare need and this was managed well. Staff always seemed kind, calm, gentle and very patient. Quality and choice of food and drink is excellent. Plenty of daily activities and residents are encouraged to be involved. We were able to visit at any time and made very welcome. It was during the last weeks of Mums life when she was very ill that everyone at Sunrise really excelled themselves, supporting her and us with the utmost compassion and dignity whilst she was receiving palliative care, meaning she was able to spend her last weeks “at home” rather than hospital.

Lovely care home, friendly staff. Comfortable for my mother.
Review relates to August 2018.
The home presents a welcoming, friendly, professional environment. It is clean, well appointed and spacious. My father-in-law feels secure and comfortable. The positives are knowing he has someone when he has a fall, for instance; companionship of like-minded residents; help with medication; staff are warm and kind.
He would prefer meals that are plainer, less 'spicy'.
We would prefer more 'formal' visits by the GP rather than the informal arrangement.
