Great quality of life for mom's last years!

My mother lived in the memory care unit at Sunrise of Minnetonka from 2016 until she passed away in 2023. The staff gave her absolutely wonderful care that entire time. My mother had dementia, but also another diagnosis that made placement difficult. In addition, she was very active and alert, so she needed beautifully decorated surroundings, lots of interesting daily activities to choose from, great tasting food, and friendship. The staff at Sunrise excelled at all of the above, for almost seven years straight, including through the difficult years of the pandemic, adjusting mom's care as her needs changed. I HIGHLY recommend Sunrise!... Read more

Tour experience

The tour with Sunrise of Minnetonka was fine. We are keeping my loved one at home with full time care and hoping not to go back to a facility. We only toured with 2 places but Sunrise seemed to be a good fit and had good sales people as well.

Review for Sunrise of Minnetonka

We picked this community because, it was close to my home and the price was reasonable. It was higher than some places but lower than others. The small amount of rooms/small community seemed like a good choice for my loved one. Overall, we're really happy with the facility. It's clean, people are friendly and they are really flexible in working with the families.

Comfortable After a Stressful Situation

This is a great place to stay for your loved one. The business side of things needs a little help, such as the explanation of everything related to the cost. I was initially quoted a price and it ended up being more than anticipated. I was told that the first payment had to be made the day of move in; however, no one told me it had to be 2 months worth. This added to the stress of an already stressful situation. The staff are very good at communicating with the family if there are any issues that come up with my loved one. They are also responsive in answering our questions. They have three or four different levels of care available. This doesn't include the medication management.

Our family had an in person tour and it was a definite no, it was not very clean and it had a really low energy feel to it. The residents there had a hard time moving around and our loved one is still very much active.

Transitional move - Road Home Program

Overall the experience was fine. Coming from a fantastic nursing home/rehab facility it is hard to be fair. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was good but most of the time too much. We did have several issues that were handled - just not always as quickly as we had hoped. With the current staffing shortages everywhere due to COVID there usually seemed to be sufficient staffing on hand except maybe involving meals. The 4 week program allowed enough time for continued improvement and to prepare the house for the move home.

Sunrise Assisted Living Makes You Feel Safe During This Difficult Time

We love the community. The staff makes it special and have been wonderful. The food is awesome. My mom has been really happy. She went in with uneasiness and the staff have been patient, kind, helpful, and accommodating. The staff gets to know about the family members. This move has been the best thing for her. She has events to go to, The community is protective of the residents and don't allow anyone in. However, the staff are good at keeping families updated with communication. We get a monthly newsletter that includes pictures of residents, calendar of events, and things that have been going on in the community. The activities department during the pandemic made sure to visit each resident to participate in activities. Sunrise loves feedback from the residents on how to improve. The building is very uplifting and bright. They have white cabinets in the kitchen.

Sunrise is a great community

The staff members really stood out to us in the beginning, and the rooms this community provides are pretty good sizes. The food would be a three out of five, and we would recommend this community to a family or friend.

Very homey feel with music and smells of good food, cookies. Loved [name removed] who herself was 5 stars, and most staff. Even the chef greeted us with nut bread. Just needs work out room/equipment. Memory care had relaxation room, dogs and baby dolls.

A great facility with friendly and caring staff.

My father has lived at Sunrise in Minnetonka in the Memory Care Unit for about a year, we have been very happy with the care he receives. The staff is very friendly and caring. They take him on all sorts of outings which is great to see him getting out of the facility when our family can not be there. It gives our family a piece of mind knowing that he is well cared for and safe.

Terrible place to put a loved one , my mom was living at sunrise in Minnetonka and the staff was extremely overworked and understaffed , management never seemed to be around when I needed to talk to a nurse or a supervisor. Wait times are ridiculously high! The girls that work are great and can't blame them for the poor staffing, they did give great care to my mother that I am forever grateful for, but would not recommend this place if your looking for good management of the facility over all

Mom is happy here

This is a smaller community and they have a house dog and the residents are allowed to have pets. The staff is very nice. The maintenance is slow on fixing things we have put in a request for. They eat 3x a day and she is a vegetarian and they offer veggies burgers and fresh salads. She goes down when they have music and people singing. She will go on excursions on the bus. It is clean in here and they have a locked in garden area that is nice. I would recommend them.

Full range of activities

Everything has been going very well for my loved one. We have been very pleased with the facility and their staff team. The friendly atmosphere between the other residents and the staff has made it an easier adjusting period for my loved one. The facility is very light and airy which was nice. They did a good job keeping the area very clean. Like most places, they have a full range of activities. My father is involved with a veteran group. They get together a few times a week and talk which I think has been good for my father. He also is starting to get involved in exercise classes and religious activities. They have church service on site. Occasionally they also take the residents off site to go to the mall or restaurants. I recommend this location to other families.

Kind Staff, Upbeat, Bright Community

My husband stays at Sunrise of Minnetonka. Overall, I feel that they really do care about him, they’re willing to learn if we feel there is something they need to change, they have been very respectful to us, and they generally have an upbeat attitude. I just wish communication was better. Sometimes, I feel that communication between staff members is not strong and could use improvement. The food is ok, and they have a very upbeat activity director who is very interested in what the residents like to do. They have outings, crafts, bingo, exercise classes, and an all-season porch for residents to sit in. I really like the way the place feels as well. It’s bright and beautiful with pockets of furniture in the hallways. My husband has a really nice studio apartment. Overall, I just can’t say enough good things about the place. Aside from the communication issues, I’d recommend this community to others.

Friendly staff but felt it was outdated.

I toured this property and the staff was very nice. I decided against this property for our dad mostly because of the very wide staircase in the middle of the building. It was beautiful but I did not feel it was safe for our dad as they only had a room available on the second floor and he would have to pass this stairway to get to the elevator. I was concerned with safety and did not think this was the place for us.

Dad Enjoys Himself Here

My dad had a good time while he was at the community. They treated him very well and he was happy with them. He likes the food and the dining experience. He can order off the menu. They also do a great job picking him up with the hoist. Being that they are like a full nursing care, this is what he needed and that is why we picked the community. It has been great and I highly recommend them.
