It's a wonderful place. They're very open to visitors, even through Covid. In fact, I've stayed there for a week with my family member. The only restriction was that you couldn't be out in the common areas. You were to stay in the room with your family member. And if you were out of the room for any reason, they required everybody to wear an N95 mask - staff, residents, and visitors. The staff are great. They all go out of their way to help anybody and everybody that comes in. They are always clean, washing their hands. They have great activities. They did pictures for Mother's Day, dyed eggs for Easter, and they have days where they bring in ice cream sundaes. They really keep their tenants very active. They go on walks. They brought in a pet that everybody shares, a dog name Mr. Pickles.

So happy that we moved both of my parents into Sunrise of Leawood. The previous assisted living facility was terrible and I was not sure of what to expect. Well Sunrise of Leawood gave me much needed piece of mind. My parents are active in the activities and look forward to the meals in the dining room. The apt is a good size for them. They have become stronger mentally and physically since arriving at Sunrise. Before I was getting calls in the middle of the night and going to the ER weekly. Since moving into Sunrise I have NOT had ONE INCIDENT. They are thriving in their 90's and I am thankful they are there. The staff is very happy, attentive and works well with everyone. THANK YOU SUNRISE!

We chose Senior Star at Villa Ventura because my mom liked the size of the community, some we looked at were too large. There are less than 200 here. It also has a walking trail and is not in a busy congested area, it is very quiet and backs up to a golf course. She is satisfied with her apartment size and is perfectly comfortable. I would recommend to others looking.

We chose Addington Place of Lee's Summit at the time because of the overall feel that I had when I toured the facility. We are very happy with it. Everyone is super caring and they want to do everything they can to make sure residents are comfortable and happy. Both of my parents are here, my dad is in memory care and my mom is in assisted living. They help my folks to have meals together and visit with each other. Yesterday was their 69th wedding anniversary and I took flowers and cards up there and they made sure they were delivered and they had a dinner together and the staff sang to them and made them a special desert. They do have a portal where they let you know what activities they have participated in and they post pictures on that and respond to comments which is helpful. I would definitely recommend to others.
