Sunset Care Home

Set back from the road for privacy, Sunset is located in a quiet, residential area close to all amenities. If you feel like a change of scenery, you can take a pleasant stroll down to Lynfield Cove for a taste of sea air, or visit one of the many parks or golf courses in the area.

Our residents delight in our tasty home-cooked meals and our cooks are happy to take requests in order to cater for your individual likes or dislikes.

We have a culturally diverse staff, with a number of different languages being spoken. Many of our carers often bring in traditional meals from their culture for everyone to try, always willing to go that extra mile.

Features of Sunset:

• Friendly to make you feel at home.

• 24 hour assistance.

• Outdoor spaces to enjoy.

• Space for some quiet time.

• Communal dining room.

Our activities programme is packed with interesting things to do and caters for all tastes. However, it is your choice to participate or not and we will respect your decision if you prefer your own company. We take regular trips to local concerts and events, as well as having entertainers visit us for your enjoyment. It’s your choice whether or not you want to take part though, we will always respect your wishes. View times and dates for our upcoming activities.
