Review ofSunrise at Fountain Square
4.9

I would say absolutely sign your loved one up and get them in there as soon as you can! Everybody was friendly. When you walk into a place like that, you expect a certain smell, but there was none of that. It smelled like they were making homemade cookies. Everyone was so o nice, and they took the proper Covid precautions, including requiring masks. The nursing staff was helpful, even if it wasn't a nurse assigned specifically to my mom. The food was okay, pretty good for the setting. The only gripe I have is I was charged a several thousand dollar move-in cost, and we had to move ourselves in entirely. They didn't even have a dolly for us to use. Also, the people who live there were walking in the hallways, so if you were standing there with a heavy piece of furniture, you had to wait for them to move out of the way. I would have expected for that move-in fee for someone to at least hold the door for us and clear the way. Aside from that move-in fee, the cost was good for the care they provided to my mom.

We had a very nice tour at Sunrise of Gurnee. The man who showed us around was very knowledgeable and helpful. The reason we didn’t go with them was because the cost was not all-inclusive. There seemed to be charges for every little thing that all added up.

This community looked awesome. It feels like you are walking into a casino for the elderly and the greeter is a dog. My feeling is that it was more for people that were more independent and did not need as much care as others.

Our family had an in person tour and the lady who gave the tour was very nice and informational but the community was just to expensive. We also go very confused on the tour with all the different floors we felt like we just kept going up and down and were getting lost. We did not like the layout of the rooms, and the community just seemed to be not as bright. The wood tones were darker, the lighting was darker and just to dim.

Our loved one were there for 10 years, and unfortunately had to leave because they did not accept medicaid. However, it was kept very clean, the staff were very nice and did a really good job keeping up with all the changes in the protocols. They constantly checked everyone's temperatures and kept families up to date. It is a cooperate community so much bigger with more residents. Our loved one did say the meals were kind of a draw back, they changed vendors and when that happened the meals sort of declined.

When our mother became very ill, we all agreed she needed nursing care and we didn’t have time to look at options. Mom has always been very social with energy to spare. 3 years later, Mom was still in nursing care but had made a recovery that told us she needed to have her life back. We found Asbury court and, though it’s only been a short time, she is her old self. At 94 she is newly alive! our salesman, our 1st contact answered all our questions and allayed our fear that independence for Mom might only be a wish. Everyone we have come in contact with has been so kind and compassionate. Each new experience for Mom has come with encouragement and understanding from whatever staff member has been involved. She looks forward to all the activities that are offered and the independence she loves so well, knowing that if she needs help with anything it’s there. We are all breathing a big sigh of relief and so happy to see Mom smiling again.

If you have a family member that needs memory care, I would recommend this community to others. They are friendly and supportive. One thing that appealed to us is the music, and one of the residents plays the piano. This allows other residents to do sing alongs. They even have quiz sessions for the residents to participate in. They have both physicals and occupational therapy if needed by residents. The community has birthday celebrations for the residents. Over the holidays they did virtual visits with families and residents to keep them in contact. This was great and I appreciated that.
