At Sunrise Senior Living, we prepare all meals in our own kitchens each and every day. The menus are varied and designed to be nutritionally balanced. In fact, we can even provide you with a nutritional breakdown of each recipe that we use, so that you can see exactly how much protein, fat, fibre, calories and so on is contained in the meals we serve.
Our kitchens provide three meals a day – either in the congenial setting of our restaurant-style dining room or in the comfort of a resident’s personal suite. In addition, snacks and drinks are available 24 hours a day.
In our ‘Reminiscence’ neighbourhood, dedicated to those living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, we have special hydration and snack stations, designed to maintain healthy levels of fluid intake and nutrition.
Our residents deserve the best and we ensure that they receive it from a wide variety of high quality suppliers. We are incredibly proud of our partnership with Donald Russell, a gourmet butcher and meat supplier. Below you can see exactly what this means for our residents and the fine dining experience at Sunrise.

We continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis, following public health advice. We've a detailed set of criteria to inform when an individual home can be reopened safely to limited visiting either by families of existing residents or by potential new residents who may want to view one of our homes. The majority of our homes are open for admissions.
As part of our approach to reopening for visitors, we'll be operating in a very different way. To minimise the risk of infection we've produced a safety guide.
We'll continue to follow public health advice to determine when visits will return to normal and will continue to do our best to support residents to keep in touch with loved ones.
