1395 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA 02476
Positioned to enjoy the greenery & peacefulness of the Lexington Bike Path on one side and the bustling in-town location of Massachusetts Ave. on the other side, Sunrise of Arlington has the best of both worlds under one roof. Our community is perfect for the resident who prefers an urban environment, and many of our residents enjoy strolling to the nearby shops and restaurants of Arlington Heights. Residents and families can also take advantage of our location on the MBTA bus line, providing easy access to Harvard Square and Alewife Station.

The level of care here is poor and I would stay away if your family member needs hands-on care. There were many times when an on-call caregiver would not respond to a page request for assistance. My family member ended up in the ICU on their watch while in the Memory Care unit. The Assisted Living Coordinator is condescending, rude and never engaged me in how care was progressing - it was rather very forcibly trying to upcharge for services and making me feel llike my family member was a problem. She should be fired. The lead nurse also had an incredible condescending attitude. Many listed activities like excercise and lecture are videos on TV instead of interactive sessions with real people. Just like the some of the caregiving at this location - a sham.

Please know that we take all concerns seriously. We’d like to learn more about your experience. Please email Information (at) SunriseSeniorLiving (dot) com so that we may follow up. Thank you, Sunrise Team
Very caring staff in the Arlington, MA facility. Facility's upkeep and maintenance is acceptable-not great-but the staff makes up for it. They showed concern for my aunt when she had her physical issues and compassion for her mental issues. Communication was prompt and timely.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
I'm a resident here, and the regular staff is usually friendly and consistently positive. But not all managers provide the same level of professional response. Some just leave me wondering how they got to their top position, not having the professional understandings, composure, and patience to fulfil expected fundamental job requirements. ... some easily lose patience with residents; as if they bring personal issues to work; ... some respond by talking harshly, as if that's the only way to get response from residents; ... there are some staff who turn the jukebox up high, while residents are trying to talk and understand each other in a common seating area; we simply are not as smart as we used to be, nor our hearing as strong. ... some Rx medication staff talk in frustration, rather than speaking with kindness to some residents who ask if they took their morning meds yet; this is a daily event, rather than having thoughts of a kind-response, and showing the resident where they signed the morning medication chart. ... some staff needs to learn how to Breathe in, breathe out; think and understand the assorted living situations. Show compassion, eliminate any competition in being better than us, in being smarter than us; in making us appear to be failures. Make better use of their healthy brains. We are the people who live here, who require special care. This ain't no hotel for independent yuppies, with BMWs, saunas, and daily wins in the Stock Market. Summary It becomes important to realize each Sunrise location is also under corporate management, who will get involved when local matters are unable to be properly resolved in a timely manner. The Sunrise of Arlington, MA is under the corporate management of the "Sunrise Corporate Office (McLean, VA)" see: [removed] This review will get updated, hoping for positive changes. $4k/mo rent. 2.5 stars is a fair rating [4/2018]. Misc positive notes: The 3rd floor is for people requiring memory care, and the services and staff are terrific. I visit people there, and am routinely impressed with the experience. Also, the location is excellent, with the public MBTA bus service located next door, and plenty of places close by to shop, and eat, etc.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
