Sunrise of Guildford
Quite simply, everything we do is based on a very clear mission: to champion quality of life for all older adults. It’s a mission that is every bit as relevant today as it has always been. We believe that no two people are exactly alike and that no two residents need precisely the same service. Our person-centred approach enables Sunrise residents to maintain independence and dignity, even as their individual needs change.

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
Sunrise of Guildford has a dedicated Reminiscence Neighbourhood which specialises in providing excellent care for our Residents with Dementia. It has a skilled and dedicated team who work with individuals to ensure that all who live with us here are able to continue living with purpose.
We would like to extend this to our local community and become a safe place for people and families affected by dementia by providing coffee and refreshments and a change of environment in a safe way.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
The only challenge is sourcing those people that we hope would benefit most from being here.
