A Trip to the Future
I had a guided tour of Sunrise at East 56 to placate my 2 sons, who wanted me to have a plan for my future, when I might need assisted living. The interior, amenities, activities and Susan, who represented Sunrise and provided all background, financial, and overview information as well as the tour, was an extraordinary guide. She was knowledgeable, an exceptional listener, and very understanding of my situation and needs. She extended an invitation to visit anytime to talk with current residents, which shows her confidence in the experience there.

The freindliness & helpfulness of the admin staff is excellent who listen and try to resolve any complaints or issues that arise All to often in the case of care givers and in house nursing staff they seem either not communicate or ignored The chef often creates superb menus some at fine dining level The sous chefs often fail to execute with excuse that ingredients have run out or lacking prep skills The servers frequently go out of their way to make up with speedy delivery and attentiveness Unfortunately they don't acquaint themselves with the ingredients of dishes and when asked must ask sous chiefs which delays delivery The activities are eithe banal mostly or performed by local staff whose capabilities are insuficient. However when outside activities (not often enough) are brought in from the vast cultural community in NYC they are outstanding The top of my list, being in rehab, is the outpatient physical therapy who's staff of two always available

Sunrise E 56th
My family and I can’t say enough good things about Sunrise E 56. We moved my mom there about 6 months ago and we haven’t seen her this happy in a while. She is busy from sun up to sun down. The staff is beyond caring and wonderful. They are very attentive to all the residents and always have a smile on their face. The communication with the families is top notch as well. We know that our mom is safe and well taken care of.

Upscale Senior Living
I’m very glad that my elderly and very demanding parents are living at Sunrise on 56th. The reasons are many. The first reasons is their staff. They are friendly, courteous and professional, not matter the situation. A second reason is the dining. The residents dine in a dining room with cloth table cloths and napkins, more importantly, they eat food that is at the level of an upscale restaurant. A third reason deals with the residents’ health and safety. Because Sunrise on 56th has a nursing staff available, plus a system to summon help when needed, they have the ability to attend to a resident’s physical and medical health. With its contemporary, ambiance and decor, Sunrise on 56th is like living in an upscale hotel in midtown Manhattan that also provides assistance the elderly.

My mother is thriving!
My mother has been a resident of East 56th Street since it opened in December 2021. My mother has dementia, and we had struggled to care for her at home. She has been expertly cared for over the past 18 months and is currently happy and stable at Sunrise. Sunrise at East 56th operates with a very high level of resident care as the norm. My mom receives a ton of attention from the staff, who all seem to know her, her preferences, and her habits. If she so much as has a hangnail, they will call me to give me an update on her condition. All of the healthcare and activity services you could possibly want or need are under one roof. There is a roster of activities available every day, and the staff members make sure that she is invited and encouraged to participate in what she likes, and they do not pressure her to be at the ones she doesn't like. She is happy with the meals and personal attention given throughout the day. Sunrise at East 56th is a blessing for our family!

A great place for seniors
My sister has been a resident of Sunrise East for the last four months and I have visited her frequently. Sunrise East is run like a “Swiss watch”. The staff is well trained, supportive, caring and alert to the needs of the residents. The residence is in the midst of one of the busiest areas in Manhattan but you cannot hear any annoying street notices. Sunrise East is Technically designed for personal health and comfort. Every effort is made maximize comfort, enjoyment. The dining room offers a wide variety of quality food choices served by a wait staff who know each person by name and are eager to please the diners. The furnishings and accessories are first class. All this doesn’t happen by itself. It takes a lot of planning, training, and attention to make it work and Dani Greene is the person who does it. [name removed] is one of the best administrators I have known and she deserves credit for managing this organization to provide a safe and loving experience for the residents

Sunrise at East 56. This is it!
After touring so many communities, SUNRISE at East 56, truly stood out amongst the rest. Straight away, I just knew this must be the place. It has been 18 months and mom is smiling, busy and just happy. Only made possible because of the amazing staff they have assembled at this beautiful property. Attending to the residents ever changing needs this team easily adapts to each situation with a caring, empathetic and professional manner. They have a can-do attitude which transcends their roles. From sales, dining, housekeeping, activities, maintenance and security, they really have it all. Daily activities and NYC-worthy outings year round…and a rooftop penthouse to enjoy! The beautiful property is modern, relaxed and inviting. At its heart is the dining room. If your loved one is like mine, their food is “everything.” Amazingly delicious choices prepared by creative chefs and a dining staff so polite, considerate and welcoming. Absolutely visit this property and put your mind at ease.

A very special oasis for loved ones
My mother-in-law moved to Sunrise at East 56th six months ago. We are continually impressed and appreciative of the kindness and diligence of the caregivers and the whole team at large. Everyone is responsive and friendly. The light-filled space is beautiful, tasteful, and exceptionally clean. The full roster of daily programming is varied and engaging. There is something for everyone. Guests are invited and encouraged to join the residents for meals; the quality of the food and diversity of menu options makes the dining experience a genuine pleasure. Costs are competitive with other top tier facilities in the city, but it is undeniable that this level of quality care comes at a premium.
