Review of Sunrise of Cascade

When I could no longer care for my mother at home, my sister and I began searching various dementia care facilities in Grand Rapids. After two weeks of visiting several facilities we were disillusioned and sad. They were all too sterile and hospital like. Then we walked into Sunrise. It was welcoming and homey and we felt comfortable with mom staying here. Please research several places but make certain one of them is sunrise.

Review originally written on A Place For Mom

To start off, I try to stay away from writing reviews but when a senior care facility seems more focused on bottom line figures than their senior patients….It warrants an honest review. NOTE: I would read all recent customer reviews to make your own opinions on whether to use their services or not. But I have to echo other people’s displeasure of the care being given to loved ones at Sunrise of Cascade AND point out many issues we found out during and after using them. Just because its a new facility and they allow dogs,..only goes so far. The fact that you hear from people like us stating major concerns,…should concern you. [Name removed] is incompetent, very dishonest and is more concerned about money than your loved one. We overheard a conversation in passing where she secured a $20,000 a month care package and began cheering and bragging to other internal office staff. She and staff will tell you “everything is going well” but in reality, they weren’t. They tried to hide items going on in the facility. We pulled my father out of their facility for 5 reasons. 1. Cuts on his arms: My father ended up with what appeared to be 5 finger nail cuts in his forearm. We were never told anything or told of any concerns but bruising and cuts appeared. The fact that this happened to a point where five finger nails pierce someone’s skin is beyond excessive. 2. Sexual Predator: While taking our father out on a daily excursion,s taff told us that there were internal reports of a sexual predator on site (outside). Over the last few years he has been found masturbating to staff and those who reside there. In spite of this, no external communication about this has been given to families. 3. Communication: There was an incident where one of their staff members purposefully removed my fathers walker (although he couldn’t walk without it). Due to this my father fell face forward. What is more troublesome is we had to find this out from a 3rd service provider because it appears the facility wanted to keep this "hush hush.” This was borderline “Elder Abuse.” 4. Basic Care: Our father was admitted to the hospital. Sunrise didn't call us immediately when they noticed a change in his condition. It took almost 24 hours before we personally got a call from Sunrise when they knew there was an acute issue. He wasn't eating or peeing and Sunrise didn't even check his temperature, when in fact he had a 103 temperature and was shaking for that day. This is not the earmark of expert care while paying $5,000-7,500 a month. 5. Violation of Tenant Lease: After giving our 30 day notice of departure we were contacted a few times regarding our departure date. At that time we stated that we would be willing to vacate the room prior the 30 days if the new prospective tenants needed to move sooner…BUT only if we were going to be prorated, and refunded our money when they moved in. If we are going to be paying for a room, there was no sense in rushing to move anything. We didn't hear from the office or a sooner move in date from new prospective tenant. When we came to pick up my fathers items on the last day he was legally leased till, [name removed] and Sunrise decided to violate my fathers own tenancy rights and removed ALL items from his room. Sunrise didn't place them in a locked location, but instead placed in the facility's common areas where anyone (residents, visiting patrons, staff, etc) could take or rummage through his items. Not once were we called to discuss this nor would we have given Sunrise permission to do so. We trusted Sunrise to protect all his belongings. As a facility Sunrise had an obligation to protect those items. Because of Sunrise’s actions, items were stolen and/or lost. What happened during my father's stay was unacceptable and I hope for all current and future residents people really investigate and review other peoples experiences so that they don’t experience what we did…BUT most importantly put a loved one through it.

I liked the staff and the facility very much; however, it does not seem like a good fit for my dad. The population is much older and the activities are geared toward that (i.e. Bingo, cards, tea, etc.) My dad is much more active and would need more than that. The accommodations were nice, and the high ceilings helped it feel much less claustrophobic than some other places. I also liked that residents have the same caregivers every day. Unfortunately, I just don't think that the community is the right fit for my dad.
