Highly recommend

We chose Sunrise at River Road because of the availability at the time and also after talking to staff and looking at the community, it was really top notch and we figured would be a good fit. The room sizes are very ample. It is very well maintained and staff members are very attentive to the residents. I am not local so some things I would like to have a little more communication and updates on so I can address things in a more timely manner. It is definitely a 5 star facility and I would recommend them.

Conversing with [name removed] at this location. Appears to be another good option. Will touch base with her once I know it is safe to fly.

A Good Place for my Aunt

I feel they are handling the quarantine very well. Very clean property. Staff is very friendly to my aunt. They have good care levels that can manage my aunts needs. I would recommend Sunrise at River Road to a friend. My aunt loves the food.It has been hard for me since I am 200 miles away but they have good communication and offer video conferencing to help families stay connected.

I was impressed with this facility. Lovely setting, friendly people. The director was playing cards with a resident - teaching her a new game. It is likely we will need for my sister to "graduate" to full memory care and that part of the facility is separate and secured. Did not tour that part of Sunrise.

Sunrise at River Road

I toured Sunrise for my loved one. I feel it is a beautiful community, and the facility itself seemed very nice. However, it is quite expensive. I also did not care for the fact that there was no outside area for my loved one to go walking.

Very lovely but a little pricey

I toured this facility when I was trying to find a place for my friend. I met [Removed] who is the director here and she’s very nice. I have a very good opinion of the place; they have assisted living and memory care available. It’s very lovely but a little pricey. It’s a very big place, so you really need to be able to move around. This is like a hotel quality. They have different levels of care available depending on what you need and they’re all at different prices. The feeling here is lovely and it looks like a bed and breakfast style. If I ever had to put myself in a place, I’d probably come here.

Love it!

She really loves it at Sunrise at River Road. The staff is friendly and attentive to our loved one's needs. They are easy to talk to about any questions or concerns that we have. They are welcoming to our family members when we come to visit. Our loved one is already making friends. They stop at each other's doors to get their group together to go and dine together. It is a great place for socializing. The meals are really good they have a lot of variety and choices. You also have choices of how much or if you want to cut the meal size in half. They also have a bistro that is open all day for refreshments and snacks, a great place to go and sit with friends and family for visits. A really nice thing is that if she isn't hungry at the time the main meal is being served she can go and order off a menu when she is hungry. The staff encourages the residents to participate in the activities they offer, they are also posted to let them know what is available. In the front of the community, they have rockers where residents can enjoy the sun and fresh air. Our loved one has her own patio on her unit. She is eating properly and her medications are being taken in a timely manner. We feel she is in very good and caring hands.

They Fit All Our Needs For Him

My dad is doing great and just fine. I have no complaints about them. I like that it is not so big and not overwhelming. They offer plenty of activities to enjoy. The food is great and he likes eating the meals, he gets 3 meals a day. I'm happy with the community and they are only 10 minutes from my home. The room is nice and they let me hang as much pictures as we want. He is happy and they met all my needs when I was looking for the right fit.

this was our 2nd choice

This is a very nice community and the staff who that did our tour did a great job. They took their time showing us around and answering all our questions as well. There are a lot of amenities here for the residents to choose from, the community is very nice, bright, open and clean and the staff was friendly. This was our 2nd choice and I would recommend taking a tour of this community to see for yourself.

I couldn't have found a better facility if I tried!

This is such a beautiful facility! They fulfilled every promise they made to us! They have beautiful food, and it is prepared very well. They make sure that the food is prepared in a way that is specific to community's needs, namely those with very few teeth who cannot chew that well. The caregivers are very professional, and I could not have asked for better facility! They were also willing to negotiate the price to fit my loved one's budget. I don't think I could have picked a better facility if I tried, it has almost a Christian atmosphere, in that it is bright, positive and upbeat!
