My husband spent only a short time at The Auberge, but while there he received the best care of his three-year journey through the various stages of dementia. From the minute I walked in the door till my loved one drew his last peaceful breath, the staff was totally supportive, caring, attentive and professional to the highest degree. I only wish we could have known about this place at an earlier date.

I think the biggest thing for me is that for the first time, I'm not so stressed out and anxious all the time. I feel confident that they're doing a good job with my loved one, who has dementia. Because of her dementia, I'm having to really put a lot of trust in the caregivers there, and they've been wonderful. I've gone there unexpectedly, and her bed is always made, and her room is spotless. Every time I see her she says "They're so wonderful here," "They're so kind," "It's a beautiful place." At the last place she was in, it was always "I'm so bored," "I don't want to be here." It has been phenomenal here at Sunrise. They just had an Olympics get-together with residents and their families where they served hotdogs, and they do things like that periodically. My loved one is a very social person, and they spotted that immediately. Even if nobody else is doing anything, they'll take her on a walk and keep her entertained, which is exactly what makes her thrive. It's such a great environment. You feel like you're walking up to a Victorian home, not a "nursing home." And it's so homey inside. It feels like someone's house, with a dog there to greet you. The rooms are really nice. I'm so impressed with them overall. I appreciate so much everything they've done for my loved one and our family. It's been such a smooth transition from assisted living to reminiscence care. They called us after a couple of weeks with her in assisted living and said they felt like reminiscence would be a better fit, which was really scary at the time. But it's been the perfect transition for her and for us. Whenever I go there to visit, they greet me by name and tell me how wonderful my loved one is doing. It's such a warm, caring place, and I give them so much credit for everything that they do.
