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.

My father is a resident at Sunrise, Hale Barnes. It is a well run care home with a highly motivated team. Residents are treated with respect and all the staff know and speak with residents using their first names. The quality of the surroundings and rooms speaks for themselves. My father quickly settled at Sunrise and made a new circle of friends.
Excellent activities. Supported by staff and chef. Ate well in the sunshine, we had an excellent BBQ.
