The facility looks very nice, but the walls are not sound proof. You can hear conversations and the noise next door. Breakfast consists of canned fruit, frozen donuts, cereals, eggs, bacon, sausage, juices, coffee, tea, milk, and pancakes. Lunch is soup, sandwiches, salad, hamburgers, meat, fries, chicken, fish, and a dessert. Dinners are chili, vegetables, spaghetti, meatloaf, chicken, fish, salads, and pork. There are plenty of choices with each meal. The same people who serve food also perform chores for the residents like bathing, help with the toilet, dressing, laundry, pushing wheelchairs, and any assistance needed. The care managers are very nice people and they show respect for the elderly people. The fees are on the higher side of care costs. They do not provide rides other than the scheduled activity for the day. The medicines are given in the dining area. The level of care is determined by a point system which has the effect of increasing costs. I had the feeling that the staff was always running from one thing to the next. Wait times for the call system were too long in some cases. The building is spread out, so it is easy to get exercise indoors by walking. A physical therapy room is needed to add to the physical wellness of residents. The housekeepers are always cleaning. The daily classes are good with yoga, singing, stretching, art, movies, scenic rides, and trips to a store or restaurant. The most important thing to look for is the quality of care for your elderly people. Compare the most important offerings with other facilities to help with your decisions on the best place to live. Get more than one reference and ask to meet the staff first. Ask about qualifications and training. Look at more than one room, and ask if you can attend a meal to get the feel of the way things work each day.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
It's as if the sunlight and warmth of Sunrise embraced my 92 year old mom-in-law and said, "It's going to be more than ok." A month since moving here, she's walking more, engaging more, and dancing to the music. I've happened upon several occasions that leave me grateful, the way the staff brings joy and humor into solving little complications, the way the staff engages those in memory care when one word misheard begins a totally different conversation and the staff goes with the flow, almost like the creation of a crazy quilt which turns out gorgeous. It's a deeper level of life in a harsh dementia world. It's not only the staff but the ambience of Sunrise. It feels like a cozy well-appointed home. Having visited three other places - one a hospital setting, one with a depressing feel, and another trying too hard to look grand - finding Sunrise was good fortune indeed. We had magical caregivers but the creeping dementia and occasional gaps in coverage made it impossible to remain at home. Stop first at Sunrise. It's the beginning of a new level of opportunity for your loved one in a setting almost like home.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
Overall my experience with Sunrise was mixed. I found the pricing per service option was too expensive. The food is good and nicely prepared. The meal plans come from a corporate headquarters and they stick to the plans. When my family member arrived it took 5 weeks to set up the physical therapy through their nursing office. There is no physical therapy room, which would have been a plus. You are free to hire your own outside care providers, and I should have done more research and asked more questions. Early on I felt that there were not enough management people on site to supervise the operations. The care staff from Nepal is just wonderful. They are very nice people with a genuine desire to help the elderly people. At times, they are asked to work overtime to fill in for people who call out. It seemed like they were running from one task to the next and they were efficient. On occasion, the call system would take too long to get help. The housekeeping staff is excellent, and I never found the facility to be lacking in cleanliness. The dining room has been remodeled recently and is very pleasing to the eye. The same people who do the caregiving are in the dining area serving the food. I think a separate set of food delivery people would be appropriate to prevent cross contamination. Because it is run by a corporation, they are motivated to increase revenue and save on expenses. The annual increase was supposed to be for food costs, and staff wages, but I didn't see any better or higher quality food being served. You are wise to survey each facility, and even look at the outlying areas. Each place is different, and you may find something that suits your family very well. Sunrise is one of the better facilities if your family member needs a minimal amount of care. If the care needs increase, then you are going to pay for it through a higher level care plan or asked to leave if they don't feel their staff is qualified or adequate to take care of the needs. The daily rates can add up over time. Basically you are buying a rental room for your family member along with the food. Cleaning is included with laundry and bathing once a week. If you desire more services then there are add on fees depending on what you want and need. Remember that it is the quality of care that is the most important feature of any elderly assisted living operation.Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
