Welcome and much needed help!

After searching for months through 20+ facilities to find the right place for our father I was pleasantly surprised by the sunrise of Crystal Lake community. We could not wait to get our father out of his current memory care and into sunrise and when we finally did we realized it was the best move we could’ve made. Everything from the facilities to the people is incredible. The communication about every little detail has been nothing short of exceptional and i can now feel that our father truly has the best care we can provide for him! Any reservations or phobia I used to have about visiting my father in a memory care unit are gone. The facilities are so clean and the staff is so pleasant that I actually look forward to going and spending time with my father.

Custom value. We looked at 7 different facilities and found Sunrise of Crystal Lake to be the most caring, warm family type place. Team member we would like to recognize- oh my!!! Everyone!!! Front desk ladies are fantastic! Always answering my questions and helping. [name removed] in sales was so sweet and caring. The ladies in the dining room could not be more attentive to each resident. The staff who stands out the most for us has been [name removed]. He has helped our mother time and time again. He has been so kind and patient, what a gem you have in him

our families experience

I felt that my Mother's meals could have been w/a little more variety even though her food was puréed. My Mother was kept clean & was carefully watched for any redness in her bottom area. Breakfast, lunch & dinner were kept on schedule for the most part. Could not comment on activities because my Mother was not in any condition to participate. She was only there for 1 month.

My mom loves it here. It's a nice and small place. It's worked out really well for her. Unfortunately, due to rising monthly cost and level of care need, we're looking at having to move her to another facility, which they've been trying to help us with. I would recommend them to friends and family for assisted living.

A Place for Mom has scored Sunrise of Crystal Lake 9.9 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score. Communities with no recent reviews will not have a review score, even if older reviews are positive. The maximum A Place for Mom review score a community can receive is 10 points.
