My wife Ros and I had lived in our two-story pole house for 20 years in retirement.
We had no plans to move until last year when Ros, who had developed Alzheimers
became unable to manage the steep stairs and had several falls in and around the
Hearing nothing but good news about Sunrise Supported Living in Tuncurry, which
also has nursing backup, we bought a Unit.
We found the staff friendly and helpful making it easy to settle in.
The move to Sunrise has been one of the best happenings in my recent (ageing) life,
after working for more than 30 years with the ABC, in radio, television, and as a
foreign correspondent in South-east Asia and North America back in the 1960s.
Sunrise Supported Living Tuncurry is a great environment to live in. The one or two bedroom units are very comfortable. Morning Tea is held with cakes and fresh snacks or birthday cakse for the residents having their birthday. There are a lot of activities including happy hour and various concerts. It is a very safe place with nurses on duty every day and every night.

To all the wonderful Sunrise Staff,
I just want to say a huge thank you for all the care you have given my mother Barbara Speight over the last 5/6 years. She really had a lovely life for those years and the staff at Sunrise bent over backwards for her.
It really has been a fabulous experience for me as well as I have learnt so much about Aged Care, and also realised that ageing can be a lovely time. At Sunrise I realise that you can still ‘have a life’ and also have wonderful care.
I’m sorry mum did not go to Sunrise earlier.

To all at Sunrise,
I wanted to send a quick email to express my gratitude and thanks to you all.
I am currently living in London and it came as a shock last year when I learned that my Dad had to leave his home in Salamander Bay. He had lived there for over 30 years and was very much part of his community. Being so far away I was concerned that a move away from his friendly, settled and familiar life would have a real impact on him, and possibly, not in a good way.
He moved into Sunrise Village early in 2020 and it has been the most wonderful outcome for him. In the time that he has been there, we have spoken often, though sadly, due to Covid and the travel restrictions, I haven’t yet been able to visit him.
It is almost impossible to say how wonderful it is to hear him tell me of how happy he is living within this your village. He loves his beautiful, new accommodation. He tells me about the beautiful gardens. And he loves the array of different and interesting people he gets to spend time with.
For me, as his daughter and living half a world away, it means so much to know that he has the sense of living independently whilst also having such high quality support and professional care immediately available if needed.
Whenever we end our phone conversations he always tells me how happy he is and how lucky he feels to be living with you all ….. and I believe him, because I can hear the smile in his voice.
Thank you again, and I look forward to meeting you all when I can finally travel back to Australia.
