The facility appears to be well maintained. The staff was friendly towards the few residents that I saw. Would want to visit during non Covid to see how the residents interact with more staff. Cost seems very high.
This community's price range was much better than others we looked at. They are companionate, professional, empathetic, and kind. The food is good and the room sizes are very nice. The staff and management are very professional. I would highly recommend this community.
Sunrise was such a great place. My brother received excellent care there. We chose the community for its location but also because we had a couple of bad experiences at other communities in the area. At Sunrise, the care was absolutely stellar. I would definitely recommend it to other families.
Unfortunately, my mother moved in over the Holidays, and Sunrise at LaCosta was way understaffed. It's understandable that employees need to take time off over the Holidays, but it's the management's responsibility to make sure that appropriate arrangements are made to cover the important work that their staff members do. Even after the holidays were long over, they were not cleaning my mother's room regularly and they kept losing her linens when doing the laundry. The suites are too dark, with only one window for 2 rooms. Although the public areas were very clean and well maintained, the décor was outdated and was filled with cutesy knick knacks that did not seem suitable for mature adults. If my mother enjoyed playing bingo all day, she would have been happy there. She did enjoy the pleasant garden area around the building and took frequent walks out there.

The sales person is a bit interesting. It is very difficult for us to understand their "point" system. It seems like they are going to bill to what the insurance will pay. It felt more like a sales pitch than a caring visit. The property is very nice, and in a terrific area but we are choosing elsewhere.
Beautiful facility. A resident stays in the same room even as services increase. Only Wednesday medical day. Alcove room with services = $7,000/mo
I did a lot of research and found Sunrise to be the very top of my list of facilities to tour and I was not disappointed. Several of my friends have placed their loved ones with Sunrise and were very happy with the services and loving care their parent received. The amenities are very well done and well appointed. It is a beautiful property, intimate, just the right ratio of staff and residents. The staff is exceptional. The price point is what I expected, further Sunrise offered the best community deposit rate. Sunrise offers both Assisted Living and Memory Care. They have a large variety of programs and outings for the residents. The menu options and food is very appealing, the food is quite good and they do make an effort to provide dishes and entrees that are pleasing to their residents and this age group. I did in fact place my parent at Sunrise. The suite my mother in law is in is quite spacious, each time I visit her, my parent's suite is immaculate. I always find her well coiffed and dressed to her personal standard of daily attire, she loves her bling. The staff is exceptional I am always greeted warmly and treated as if I am part of the family. A couple times a week, the facility will take the residents out on the bus for outings and adventures. They even offer dance classes; my Mother-in-law has been a dancer her whole life and even with dementia, she’s never forgotten a step. If there’s no program going on, the staff will dance with her and twirl her around the lobby. I’m happy with this facility and the care my family member is getting. I would absolutely recommend them and have already done so."
Mom was in a skilled nursing home and we had to move her into hospice care. I was hesitant to move her to Sunrise because it was an Assisted Living place and they had no nursing at night (although I think they may have hired one since I was there). The level of care and responsiveness to my mom was truly a Godsend. From the level of care, to the room and even the food it was such a blessing. They were so much more responsive than the nursing home. I thought that Sunrise was for healthy people, I had no idea what a good place this was for my mom. They treated her with respect and they were super friendly. I would recommend this to anybody and everyone. I was relieved my mom was here for her final days.
I toured here when looking for a place for my grandmother and it was nice. They’re a bit older so they have a bit more experience I think and they seem to be nice with all of the residents. I wouldn’t say it’s run down, but it’s starting to show it’s age. Other than that, it seems really nice. When I went, it was lunch time and you could smell it all over. It seemed like every time our tour guide would walk by, she would say hi to everyone and everyone recognized her and knew who she was and everyone seemed to be having a good time there. Everyone was very friendly and everyone knew each other and was talking with each other. The only thing was that outside, in their garden area, you could see the age of the landscaping. The chairs and stuff outside were really old and rusted and you could just tell that it wasn’t new.
I toured Sunrise with my husband, and I would have been pleased for mom to move into this community because it is very close to my house. However, when we arrived to take the tour, the [Removed] was answering phones at the front desk, we were told that there was no appointment scheduled for us, and that the person who was supposed to show us around was already with another client. The community itself is beautiful, but the staff’s lack of presence was really unsettling to me.

This is a top notch facility. Lovely accommodations, professionally run, beautifully decorated.
I am happy with the care of this community. My parents were taken care of very well at this community. They both liked the meals. My mom loves the activities that are offered. The community is clean and the staff is so helpful. I would recommend the care and value of this community to other families
My dad has seemed to really be liking his stay at this community so far. He has been really enjoying the meals they serve and has yet to miss a meal time. I love how clean not only the dinning room stays but the entire facility, the house keeping team does a great job. The only thing I wish is that residents where more inviting and friendly to him.
The sales people were eager to take him as a patient. After the assessment they could not accept afterwards. They would accept the money evaluation. The staff was informed on the needs before hand. It was a nice and clean community.
Very clean facility. Staff seems very friendly and attentive.
This location appears to be a little more on the upscale side and quite a bit pricier. I was not impressed by the quality of the rooms and facilities in the rooms when everything else appeared to be very nice.
Sunrise is a gorgeous place. The facility is kept immaculate and the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. It is like a resort for Senior Citizen's here. The staff is so professional and you can tell that they take a genuine interest in the residents well being.
The team at Sunrise has surpassed my expectations. Every department has made what can be a challenging transition for a family smooth. Clearly they are in their professions because they truly care about the elderly. My mother is in the memory care unit now for six weeks and her needs are so complex, yet all involved go way above and beyond. I can't recommend Sunrise higher.
I had a mixed experience with Sunrise At La Costa. I brought my grandmother there and it turned out not to be a good fit for her. They were not very good at communication. It was very hard to get a hold of anyone. I would leave messages and never hear back. They did not do a good job keeping me informed of how grandmother was doing, which was very important to me. It ended up not being a good fit for us.

The moment my sister and I walked in the door, we had a good feeling about Sunrise at La Costa. We were looking for a place for our dad, who has Alzheimer's, to live. The first thing we saw in the middle of lobby was a large, beautiful yellow lab (labrador retriever) laying on the floor. We came to find out he was a retired seeing eye dog and his name was Landon. Landon is the unofficial canine greeter at Sunrise at La Costa. He is very welcoming and friendly and helps to make the property feel very homey. The decor in all the common areas is comfortable with big overstuffed chairs and warm lighting, and all the rooms are nicely appointed. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with rose bushes, flowering annuals, tropical perennials and palms. The one bedroom apartments are spacious and offer generous closets and storage. Most importantly, though, is that the licensing and programs at Sunrise allow for residents with Alzheimer's diagnoses to live in assisted living for as long as possible before moving to memory care. That was key reason my sister and I ultimately chose to move Dad to Sunrise. He is relatively self sufficient and fiercely independent, so the idea that he could live in an assisted living apartment rather than a studio in memory care was important to us. Last but not least, the people who work at Sunrise are friendly, compassionate and caring. Most have worked there for many years--a sure sign that management is stable and the work environment is good.
