"Love, affection and personal caring"

I (on behalf of my Family) would like to formally say a big thank you to Sunrise in Tettenhall for the love, affection and personal caring that Dad was given by all staff in the Rem Department. He was very happy there, and I am proud he ended up getting close to the carers who were just so kind to him. They say a job’s and job! But certainly not under these circumstances and I cannot praise them enough. They made him peaceful at the end. Thank you. - Family Member - Sunrise of Tettenhall

"A message on Facebook"

To all the wonderful people in the Dementia Unit at Sunrise in Wolverhampton, Oksana, Jane, Sandeep, Almeira, Sodji and June PLUS all the others there. Thank you so much for giving my Father a brilliant final resting place and looking after him so lovingly. I am so happy he was so settled with you all. Much love. I shall never forget! - Alex X

"We are sure we have made the right choice"

Please can you pass on our family's sincere thanks for the way the staff welcomed Heather into Sunrise of Tettenhall last Thursday. The move was exhausting for the few family members who were able to help Heather. She had lived in the same house for more than fifty years and we somehow had to make decisions about what she should bring with her. It was such a generous gesture to allow us to have supper together as a family in your lovely dining room. I began to relax when I was offered a glass of wine with my supper ! Her new room is beautiful and we hope that having some of her own furniture and possessions will help her settle. The caring atmosphere at Sunrise is amazing. Everyone we spoke to was patient and considerate. You all seem to appreciate that making this move is difficult even though it is the right thing to do. We are sure we have made the right choice. Thank you again for all your help. - Daphne Johnston, December 2015

I have been delighted with all aspects of the service offered by the team at Sunrise of Tettenhall who support my husband's needs. All the staff have really made a huge difference to me as well whilst I struggle to come to terms with my loved one's escalating needs. Thank you for all your support to us both at such a traumatic time. You are all-stars.

My mother has been a resident of Sunrise for almost 5 years now. She leads a happy and fulfilled life and I can't ask for more, for someone who is 95. The staff are attentive and friendly and she is well looked after. She enjoys the food and is particularly keen to take part in the many varied activities on offer.

Dad has only been in Sunrise for a short time, but we have been so impressed with the care and respect that is shown not only to dad but to all of the residents. He is always treated with warmth and affection by all the staff which really helps in what is a very difficult and confusing time for him.

My Mum and I had considered several care homes, read many brochures and sought word of mouth recommendations. When she decided the time had come, we asked Sunrise to admit her. The managers made the admission and transition as simple as possible and from then on the staff have been superb. Mum has never regretted her decision to move to Sunrise. She is well looked after and is now considerably physically stronger and more mentally buoyant than she had been for a long time. All the effort and energy she had been expending in looking after herself and running her home can now be directed into enjoying life. Nothing in life is completely perfect - but for the care of the elderly Sunrise is the nearest thing to perfection I can imagine. All the worries I have had in the years since Mum turned 90 and became frailer have now completely gone. Managers, front of house, carers, caterers, nurses, cleaners, launderers all have one focus: Providing the best possible care. I hope I will live here eventually.
