Very very satisfied

We were not able to really visit the community that much due to the pandemic, but when we did the meals seemed to of looked and smelled good. They took good care of our loved one and we would recommend this community to others.

My mother is very happy here!

She moved in a week before COVID so we haven't been able to go visit. When we did move her in though, the activities coordinator seemed to be very engaged with the residents, always trying to keep them engaged and active even on lock down. . The food is good my mother hasn't complained yet. The staff is very good with keeping the families informed with what is going on on a daily basis. For the memory care side every thing is on the first floor, which makes everything very accessible. We like the way it looks on the outside. When we moved her in we were able to see her room which is pretty good in size.

Be careful

I feel like that evaluation wasn't accurate and they immediately said my mother was appropriate and could meet her needs but they could not. Also, the coordinator of the memory care had no medical background or knowledge. The staff were not loving at all. They just ignored my mother. The staff would blame everything she did on her. They "nickel and dimed" us for everything, costing $30,000 in just two months. It was an incredibly expensive mistake. I would highly suggest that if you are considering placing your loved one at Sunrise's memory care, ask for a trial period first.

Very nice facility. Hosted by Director of Sales, [name removed], I was able to tour multiple areas and rooms, and see residents involved in numerous activities. Wasn't able to get a firm cost estimate, as services tend to be level of care-related, kind of an ala carte basis. Hope to have a firm number soon. Sunrise is definitely on our "strong possibility" list. Thank you, [name removed], for your kind attention.

Similar to Wayne. Room layout was ok. Sales Dir. was a sales person, seemed a little too eager.

We chose this place for my sister-in-law because of the Memory Care Unit.On the tour , we were impressed by the friendly staff and the cleanliness of the facility.On subsequent visits, we were convinced we have made the right choice for her.Our A Place for Mom advisor [name removed] has been with us every step of the way. So have [name removed] and [name removed] from Sunrise. We needed their support when an unexpected hospitalization really gobsmacked us.Thankfully, everything worked out. A big plus for us is that our Siberian Husky Sky can visit her " Mommy Susie ", as I know that they do miss each other.

Our visit

The community seemed clean. I was not impressed with this community. The person that assisted us with our tour talked to us and acted like my loved one was not in the room. He felt disrespected and this was not the way we wanted him treated.
