At Sunrise, the residential care we provide is a cut above what you might expect in an ordinary care home for older people.
We provide assisted living services that are all about treating each and every resident as an individual. By understanding our residents’ needs, preserving dignity and respecting independence, we help to create a real sense of home.
Assisted Living is for people who value their independence, but need some help with some day-to-day activities, such as dressing, bathing or taking medication. Exactly how much care is needed will depend on the unique needs of each individual.
For residents who require a greater degree of medical support, many Sunrise care homes are also registered to provide nursing care. For residents living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, every Sunrise care home features a dedicated dementia care neighbourhood called ‘Reminiscence’.
Whatever, level of care is needed, your move into Sunrise starts with an assessment of needs. We meet every resident and their family before the resident moves in — and at regular intervals after then — to define what level of care and service is most appropriate. All of this detailed information goes into an Individualised Service Plan of care (ISP) that is monitored daily.
It’s not just our person-centred approach to care that sets us apart. The Sunrise difference is something that exists across each of our care homes – from the buildings and grounds through to the range of residential care, nursing and dementia services we offer.
It’s our people who are central to everything we do. Passionate, skilled and always approachable, they’re respected not only by our residents, but also by families and medical professionals.
As our residents are all particularly vulnerable to the COVID-19 infection, we have taken the difficult decision to temporarily suspend all visits from relatives and friends, unless in exceptional circumstances. We do not take this decision lightly; reducing visitors into our homes will help protect the health and safety of residents which is our priority. Visits from healthcare professionals and for matters relating to health and safety continue with appropriate precautions.
Our intention is to follow public health advice to determine when visits will return to normal. We will continue to do our best to support residents to keep in touch with loved ones via other methods, such as phone and video calls, letters or emails in the short term.
