Has anyone heard of Sunrise? Senior living.
i believe its like a respite care ome rather than a full time care home, thatspecialises in alzhemiers.
If so do you have any views on the place? especially the one in chorleywood?
love laura

Well what a coincidence - they are building an absolutely ginormous facility just down the road from me: these people seem to have a world-wode presence.

Sunrise is everywhere

We have quite a number of them here in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area). They are what we refer to as "retirement homes". They look gorgeous but are extremely expensive. From what I've seen & heard, they are not suitable for more advanced cases of dementia. The cost of a shared room (!) is 3 times the cost of a shared room in a provincially legislated Long Term Care Facility (aka nursing home).

There are other retirement homes which aren't so expensive but even so, retirement homes are not geared for the kind of care that a NH can give. Plus, they will provide additional care but you must pay for everything.

Can you tell I'm not a fan of this type of care?

i wanna work in somewhere like this because i didnt like the care my dad got i always thought he was being ignored, and atleast if i work there, because im young i wont have an as important role, which means my time can be spent more with the residents, whether it be just checking on them, or sitting and having a good old chat.
just so they feel cared about, and feel like someone actually has the time for them.
i understand why people are against care homes, alot of people do it for a job, for the money, jsut to earn a living.
i dont i wont to do it to make a difference i want people who have very few people left to feel like someone cares this is my aim.
the contact form says they will reply within 48 hours so hopefully i will hear tomorrow.
thanks for getting back to me.
