Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Durham, NC
Morningside of Raleigh
4.2

I was fortunate to find a memory care unit that both my parents could move to and stay together. The care my parents are getting is wonderful and the staff is always very helpful when I have a question. My parents haven't really gotten in to the activities yet but they have only been there for 2 months. I no longer need to worry if they are safe or need something because I feel Morningside is taking good care of them. The staff checks on them frequently and is very attentive to their needs concerning personal hygiene. Medication management has been flawless. Questions are answered easily by checking excellent records kept on chart. I have been very happy so far.

Brookdale Cary
3.9

This facility is very warm and welcoming on the front end. Housekeeping is often and not perfect, but they do a good job for the most part. Ongoing communication with the family needs improvement. If we reach out we can usually get answers, but it would be nice to receive updates on dad. Especially with him being in memory care and not being able to tell us things on his own. Like activities, for example. I know they have them, but I don't know if he participates or not. One thing I would suggest is offsite activities. I don't think they have them but I think they should. Overall, dad's needs are being met and he is taken care of here. We didn't have a lot of time to look around, our need was pretty immediate. If we would have had time to look around, I'm not sure this would have been our top choice. However, it's working out ok. I would recommend them to family and friends.

Sunrise of Cary
4.5

We chose Sunrise of Cary because when we got there for our tour they were prepared, they were very friendly, and we did not feel like we were rushed through it. We got to see everything from the dining room, the activity room, to the residents room. We had interaction with the current residents here as well and they seemed to be happy. It was also very clean and the residents looked more put together. The ladies had their hair brushed the men their beards were trimmed, they all just looked great. It is more expensive than the average cost of an assisted living facility. For us, it is worth the money knowing she is getting the care that she needs. They do have a lot of outings and a very nice outdoor space. They also offer the doctors on demand and in house physical therapy and occupational therapy of which we are taking advantage of. All in all, we are very pleased and she likes it here and considers it home now.
