"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

Attentive and caring staff who also respect the individual dignity of residents and enable them to have as much independence as possible. It is heartening that the philosophy is to accept that a certain amount of risk goes with encouraging independence. Amazing range of activities. Friends and family love to visit, including the youngest members because of the welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

Mom has been at Sunrise for just over 12 months and although it took time for her to settle, she is now very happy and contented, mainly due to the management and staff who show her all the patience and care she needs.

Mum was a resident at Sunrise of Tettenhall for 6 weeks of convalescence following hip replacement surgery. It was the perfect location for her at this time. Every member of staff we encountered was caring and extremely professional, from carers to dining room staff, reception staff to nursing staff-no one was less than friendly, professional and welcoming. Prior to admittance, the administrative staff were informative and helpful in finding the right options for us as a family. Initially mum found it hard to settle, but staff listened carefully to her likes and dislikes and bent over backwards to meet her individual needs and preferences, which made a huge difference. There is a varied programme of activities on offer which is inclusive and stimulating. The food is varied, plentiful, nourishing and well presented and individual tastes can be catered for. To sum up, I can recommend Sunrise most wholeheartedly and offer heartfelt thanks for their care, compassion and skill.
