A magnificent place to call home, Sunrise at Frognal House was built in the early 18th century. It is the birthplace and residence of Thomas Townshend, 1st Viscount Sydney, after whom Sydney in Australia was named. It has the feel of a country residence, but is set close to many local amenities - including the local hospital - with good access to Kent and Central London. Set in 7 acres of beautiful grounds, the community is resident to numerous British birds including woodpeckers and kestrels. Stroll in the beautiful grounds and find a quiet corner and bench to relax and admire the stunning setting of Sunrise Senior Living at Frognal. This magnificent home possesses extensive care facilities including expert Assisted Living care and Reminiscence, a specialised, separate neighbourhood for seniors suffering from memory loss.

Reviews

9.1 Sunrise of Frognal House has a Review Score of 9.1 (9.055)

The Review Score of 9.1 (maximum of 10) for Sunrise of Frognal House is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.5 out of 5 from 40 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Sunrise of Frognal House in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.5 out of 5 from 14 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Care Home / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Care Home receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.521 for Sunrise of Frognal House is calculated as follows: ( (287 Excellents x 5) + (153 Goods x 4) + (23 Satisfactorys x 3) + (2 Poors x 2) + (5 Very Poors x 1) ) ÷ 470 Ratings = 4.521

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Care Home to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Care Home with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.534 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Sunrise of Frognal House is based on 14 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 26.2 positive Reviews (131 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 14 Reviews ÷ 26.2 Target = 0.534

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Mum moved into Sunrise of Frognall in February 2017. It was a worrying time but Mum has settled in very well. The thing that Sunrise excels in is their staff. They are wonderful, witty, caring, have time for the residents and try to keep them occupied by providing many activities to join in.

I would definitely recommend Sunrise! I'd like to say a special thank you to Mum's carer who is wonderful. She is an absolute credit to your care home. When no one else can get through to my mum, she can. Mum had a urine infection and needed to drink more. Mum told her carer that she hated drinking water so her carer brought her in a bottle of barley juice and got her drinking this regularly. To me, this was going over and above in her role and showed a true want to help and support us as a family. She is an absolute credit and I would like to nominate her for an award.

Sunrise have been very accommodating to my mother's needs and have tailored a particular plan to cater for them.

They have a flexible, friendly attitude, but do ensure the essentials are catered for their residents.

The accommodation and food is very good and the household is clean.

They have done a great job for my mum.

Dad has resided at Sunrise of Frognal House for just over three years and in August reached the grand age of 100, with family arriving from all over the world I wondered how on earth I would cope.
I needn't have worried, Sunrise of Frognal House pulled out all the stops to help me and give dad the most wonderful party ever. The marquee was decorated, photo's of his life were put on display, champagne served and the most sumptuous buffet prepared. My thanks to all the staff at Sunrise for a truly memorable occasion and for being so kind, caring and supportive in the way you look after Dad.

My mother has mild dementia, she can look after her personal care but needs support with her memory loss - Since living at Sunrise of Frognal House, her quality of life has improved 300%. The staff are caring, show genuine affection to the residents and do everything they can to give their residents choices, activities, be ambitious in learning new things and most of all, laugh and enjoy life.

My very dear friend moved into Sunrise about 4 years ago. The trauma of selling up her home was very great for her.
However, being able to bring with her the favourite items of furniture and possessions deviated that stress. She was made most welcome by the staff and they make every effort to help her settle in. She is 96 years old this year. She obviously has had some health problems but the staff have been most responsive to her needs.
The chef makes sure her food is mashed for her as she has problems swallowing. She is very deaf, yet the staff accommodate this and she loves sitting in the foyer watching the activities and reading her daily newspaper. The place can be likened to a 5-star hotel. Foyer, bistro and en-suite rooms excellent.

I have been going to Sunrise for about 4 years visiting a lady who is now 96 years old. When she arrived there, with the help of my friend and I, she was quite unwell and unable to care for herself. With good food, lovely surroundings and very caring staff, she has continued a much happier life, never lonely and everything is done for her. My friend and I say when the time comes, this is the place for us.

I found all aspects of care excellent - cleanliness, caring, atmosphere, facilities and communication. I feel everyone who works there wants to be there, and are happy in their jobs, which creates a warm, kind, happy atmosphere. Considering a care home was not something we wanted to do, however Mum and her family and friends have all been very happy with the decision.

When I arrived at Sunrise there was a "good" feeling. Everyone was friendly with a smile. I was directed to the information desk where my questions were answered. The home is clean and inviting. Information packs are available relating eg accommodation, dining, light precautions, laundry, maintenance, outings, post, well-being, hairdressing etc. I'm pleased I became a resident here.

I was nervous when I came not knowing what to expect but I made some good friends and have been as happy as possible without my lovely husband who I lost to prior coming here. It's lovely here in good weather as the grounds are lovely to have a walk in, and in summer we can sit out and have our tea or coffee. The staff work hard to keep us all well looked after and content.

The care home is friendly, bright and cheerful. They provide a lot of activities for the residents. The communal areas and gardens are clean and tidy. The residents are always well turned out. They make the family who visits residents welcome problems/issues are responded to very well by the care manager whose door is always open. The only issue is the time it sometimes takes to answer the call bell. There have been several occasions where my mother has waited a long time (Up to 1 hour) to be taken to the bathroom and put to bed. Not all carers are told the background to my mother and so do not know how to take her to the bathroom, etc. My mother is very immobile and her bathroom does not allow for her to have as if it was a "wet room" then she could shower.

My dad has been at this home for over two years and we have nothing but praise for the care and attention he has been given by every member of staff. The atmosphere of the home is relaxed and friendly and feels more like a hotel, a five star one. We as a family have no worries or anxiety about dad's care and that is worth its weight in gold. Everyone from the managers, carers, receptionists, kitchen staff, bus driver and handyman always have a friendly smile and a hello for us and dad. His life is comfortable and safe and he is happy and that is down to Sunrise.

The staff at Sunrise are caring, compassionate, smiling, happy and extremely welcoming. Even though my father was only in there a few months, they treated him with dignity and respect. They were alert to his problems and he called them his angels. The building was always clean and they always welcomed everyone. Even after he passed on, they still showed dignity and respect. His last journey was from Sunrise and the carers and management came out to pay their respect. They lined the drive and to this day, his family found it overwhelming and cannot thank them enough.

Everyone has been most helpful and kind to me at all times. The staff and carers in the dining hall are kind and caring and nothing is too much trouble for them, whatever you want! all staff greet you with a smile and a cheery word, which is very encouraging when you first arrive. All in all I feel relaxed and getting better by the day!

My mum had a 4 weeks trial at this place in an 'independent' unit.
She was assessed by the care home before the trial started.
My mother could not cope with the 'independent' unit at all.
I removed her after 9 days.
There was no apology or even a sympathetic reply from the organisation.
I felt they were only interested in the fees.

My parents moved into Sunrise at Frognal House three months ago. At every stage from assessment to preview visit, through the move and subsequent term of residence myself ans all the family have been delighted with every aspect of care and service provided. Having checked out 6 different residential care facilities there was nothing even close to comparing with Sunrise at Frognal. Our expectations were high and in every aspect have been exceeded. Thank you.

During my stay here I have been treated by everyone as somebody very special by all members of staff, my room is really lovely with all my personal furniture and family pictures. I would very strongly advise anybody wanting courtesy and comfort to pick this care home, having checked out every home in the area.

As I have been able to bring my own bed and furnishings it has helped me to settle in my room and feel cosy and comfortable. Also with a nice view from my window. The meals have been varied and nourishing. Serves at small tables set for four people to enjoy the company at meal times. The bistro area has plenty of seating and a coffee and tea making machine. There are always some activities to interest most, like Yoga, Quizzes etc, and always my own room if I need some quiet time.

I am more than happy with mum's care. We have had occasions to complain but we have spoken to management who have looked at our complaints and we are pleased to say that matters have been resolved in a quick and caring manner. Whilst I understand increases in mum's monthly care are going to happen, I believe that they are on the high side!!

The carers have shown nothing but warmth to mum. They are patient and take time to ensure that she gets help when needed. When visiting mum we often hear her laughing and joking with a member of staff, they genuinely care about her, which is comforting from relatives point of view. From kitchen staff to the chap who drives the bus they always have smile and a word with mum.

I have found this care home one of the best I have been in. My relative is well looked after and she has everything she needs, and the staff cannot do enough for her. It is a very friendly place and every time I visit there is always something going on for the residents to do. I am always made to feel welcome by the staff when I visit her. It is a lovely place to live for the last few years of your life.

Since my father went to live at Sunrise he has received excellent care in all areas. There is always someone to speak to regarding his health, diet and wellbeing. I cannot praise the carers enough for all they do. The food is to a very high standard and it's good to see my father gaining weight. He is very happy and praises the staff every day. I didn't want my father to go into a home but from the moment I walked through the doors and met such kind people I knew it was the very best for him.

My mother started off in independent living but when her friend was unwell she found it difficult to find her way to the main building. She has macular degeneration so found it impossible to use the keypad to open the door. She is now in assisted living and they have helped her make the transition to the new building and new room. She is still settling in but the staff have been patient with her and allowed her to keep her independence.

The home is welcoming, well run and caring. Staff interact with residents and well thought out activities are planned and carried out most days. The food is varied, fresh and well prepared and served.

Residents rooms are clean and well maintained and the hotel service is good with care taken regarding residents clothing and personal belongings.

The home is well maintained with beautiful decor and kept warm with future work programs advertised in local news letters to residents and relatives. Communication is good with regular resident/relative and staff meeting forums.

The home has beautiful grounds and gardens which the residents get involved in and enjoy.

The staff to residents ratio is good during the day, cannot comment on the night time but no reason to believe it is not adequate.

Security is excellent with records to demonstrate movement of visitors and residents alike.

The senior managers are approachable and communicative willing to discuss and react to concerns of the relatives and residents.

Overall a well run care home.

David Clarke

Job Title: Activities and Volunteers Co-ordinator

Description:

I have worked for Sunrise at Frognal for 7 years, I came to Sunrise having worked for 6 years as a Training Development Coordinator for a national youth charity and I remembered the Joy of Service to Seniors from when I worked as a care assistant during my college years so decided to change from working with minors. I was attracted to Sunrise because of the principles of service to our residents and since then I often feel like a stick of Blackpool rock (if broken in half you’ll find Sunrise written through me). In my spare time I volunteer and am in charge of a sea cadet headquarters in Dartford where I enjoy canoeing, rowing and other adventurous activities, socially my partner and I enjoy country line dancing which I teach to my local community and at home I find gardening relaxing and enjoy spending time with my 12 year old daughter Sara and our pet dog Jack. My proudest achievement is my Honours Degree in Youth Leadership and Management and being presented with the Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

I joined the team at Frognal in January 2014, bringing with me more than 18 years experience in health care. I am very happy working within the Sunrise team.

Helping people to make a positive change for themselves or for a family member and seeing a new resident flourish and make new friends within the community is very rewarding.

Job Title: Director of Community Relations

Description:

I joined the team at Sunrise of Frognal in April 2017. I have an extremely rewarding role in guiding and supporting families through what can be a distressing time in choosing somewhere for their loved one to live. I get to spend time with residents and their families before a resident moves in and get to hear all about their interesting pasts. No two days are the same and it makes the job very interesting and varied.
