My mother was diagnosed with early onset dementia and spent 6 years living in Sunrise of Sonning being cared for by the Reminiscence team. She was one of the longest staying residents. Throughout the whole time, the team have gone above and beyond what I would expect, showing real intelligence, professionalism and passion for the people in their care. For the relatives, they prepared us for each new stage before it happened, carefully discussed the options and had the confidence to nudge us in the right direction if we were unsure. For my mother, she was cared for with love and kindness. Even in the final stages they thought of everything and made sure she was treated perfectly, even if that meant taking some tough decisions on their part or putting her needs in front of their own. Both of her lead carers are now part of our family and join in family events. I could not recommend them more highly nor praise them more.

How likely would you be to recommend Sunrise of Sonning? Extremely Likely
Sunrise of Sonning is an excellent facility with a team of managers and staff who genuinely care about their residents.
In particular, they took great care of my Uncle during very difficult circumstances.
I cannot praise the attitude and levels of care and compassion too highly.

My 64-year-old sister stayed at Sunrise of Sonning for the last 12 weeks of her life. She was always treated with dignity and respect. Nothing was lacking in her end of life care. All staff were very friendly at all times. Her cat who stayed with her was also very well cared for. The food and activities were excellent. Nothing was too much for any member of staff. We were always made to feel very welcome, part of a big family and encouraged to join in activities.

My dad was a resident at ‘Reminiscence’, Sunrise of Sonning for almost three years suffering from vascular dementia. The care, love, support and respect that my dad was given by the 'Reminiscence' team at Sunrise was exemplary throughout. My father's dementia journey was not easy for him or our family, but the staff were flexible, proactive and understanding the whole time. Communication from the staff to the family was also excellent.
Dad and our family are eternally grateful for the care and compassion shown. Thank you to all at Sunrise of Sonning.

Everyone has made my mum feel at home and treated her very well. Staff have been compassionate and caring. On one occasion, mum didn't receive help to get undressed and her buzzer didn't seem to work. This was resolved by mum leaving her room to find someone. I understand this was an oversight and hasn't happened again. Any problem has been dealt with immediately and with support and understanding.
