Sunrise of Bassett launched its brand new memory care neighbourhood last week, at a special VIP party featuring delicious food and drink, and live entertainment.
At an event attended by the Mayor of Southampton, Councillor Les Harris, guests were treated to mouth-watering canapés and flowing champagne, and enjoyed a music performance from a soothing harpist.
Councillor Harris gave an inspirational speech before declaring the luxury neighbourhood officially open, while the Head of Memory Care at Sunrise Senior Living UK, Jackie Pool, spoke to guests about the community’s beautiful surroundings, and caring, compassionate team members who go beyond the call of duty to ensure residents lead enriched lives.
One of Sunrise Senior Living’s 25 communities in the UK, Sunrise of Bassett provides expert dementia care, focused on a range of individual needs.
The community’s other services include first-class assisted living and nursing care.
Councillor Les Harris, Mayor of Southampton, said:
“I hope those who live here have a good life and visitors enjoy visiting. It feels like a real home, which is safe and secure.”
Joanna Audley, General Manager at Sunrise of Bassett, said:
“Launching our new memory care neighbourhood at a special VIP party was a great chance to welcome members of the local area to come and see our vibrant community.
“The party gave guests the chance to enjoy delicious food and drink, enjoy the lovely sounds of a live harpist, and socialise with a diverse range of people.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Councillor Les Harris for his rousing speech, and say how much we are looking forward to hosting many more events over the coming months and years.”
Jackie Pool, Head of Memory Care at Sunrise Senior Living, said:
“The VIP launch of our newly refurbished memory care neighbourhood was an excellent opportunity to share our experiences, vast knowledge of memory care and how our caring, compassionate staff ensure residents continue to live enriched lives.”
