My family is very happy with the care my mother recieves at Sunrise! The staff is very dedicated and whenever we have a question or concern they always make sure it is taken care of right away. We have been impressed by the way they have handled the pandemic and made sure that the residents have been protected. The entire place is very clean and they decorate for every holiday. Making decisions about care for a loved one is never easy but I think we made the right decision with choosing Sunrise.

I will forever hold the staff at Sunrise of Wilmington close to my heart. For 7 years my wife struggled with a debilitating illness and the good folks at Sunrise always saw to both her physical and emotional needs. Always done with a smile and, very obvious, to me, with a genuine care for her welfare. I went through similar circumstances with both of my parents, and while they were well cared for, nothing will ever compare to how well the Sunrise team took care of my wife. They were a real blessing in our lives.
