We inspected Sunrise Operations Fleet Limited on the 25 and 26 October 2016. Sunrise Fleet provides accommodation and personal care to older people. The home also has a specific care unit for people living with dementia. The home offers a service for up to 78 people. At the time of our visit 76 people were using the service; however three people were independent with their care needs. This was an unannounced inspection.

We last inspected the home in January 2014 and found the provider was meeting the relevant regulations.

There was a registered manager in post. A registered manager is a person who has registered with the Care Quality Commission to manage the service. Like registered providers, they are ‘registered persons’.
