Our experience at Sunrise

We chose Sunrise of Sunnyvale at the time because it was my mother in laws first choice because she knew other people who were here. Everyone here is extremely nice, but it seems somewhat disorganized and I think that the nursing staff could use some improvement on communication to families. Due to our experience, we would not recommend them to others. We feel she is safe but it is just not the right fit for us.

My Review of Sunrise of Sunnyvale

I would recommend you search further especially for memory care. I started at one amount in a month and it almost quadrupled in the next. The staff seems to be fair in most aspects. The office staff is also good to work with.

The staff takes great care of my wife

This place has a very friendly atmosphere and things have been going well for my wife because they take good care of her. The staff is easy to communicate with and they answer all of my questions. I’ve eaten there quite a few times and the food is really good. It seems well balanced and pretty nutritious. The menu offers a lot of different choices, but if you don’t want something on the main menu then there are different options that you can choose. The cleanliness is good, every time I go to visit my wife her room is very clean. They have plenty of games that require physical and mental dexterity, there are quizzes on what’s going on and they help stimulate the residents’ memories with quizzes about their life or the past. The other residents seem happy to be there and they’re pretty friendly. We’re moving to a different community soon, but it’s only because I want to be able to live with her. The rooms here are too small for us to be together.

I had a tour and a lengthy Q&A with [Removed]from marketing. She was very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions thoroughly. This place stands out from the crowd - there is a feeling of openness. People sit where they want at meal time and have choices of activities. There are several common areas as well as outdoor areas. When I visited there were residents in the dining room, in the library, in the TV room, and some chatting on the front porch. Even in the memory care area most of the residents were in the common room interacting with the carers and not shut away in their rooms.

This facility is confident they could take my dad. It seemed good, but I wonder about their scrutiny. They have no memory care units, but do have an assisted living studio. Seemed like staff was engaged, involved, and well liked, but less so than Belmont. Dangled the $5000 move in waiver if we do it in August.

Not the right fit

It was a very nice and clean community that we toured. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We chose another community that was more in line with our needs for memory care.

Enjoyable Environment!!

I have no complaints of how things went during my tour of this community. The staff where on time to my appointment and had nice presentation prepared for my visit. I was offered a meal to try and got to see the entire building from front to back. They had a spacious common areas and the apartments where very clean. It was a great place just not the right fit for me in the end decision.

The Current Resident

For 9 days we had my mom here but it is not the appropriate place for her. It is a nice place but the population was far gone and she is more coherent. She only had one person to talk with. The staff were great and good with the care and the administrator was great. The residents are all high level dementia, Not for one who is still active and understanding what is going on.

Not clean as i liked for my mom. The staff was not friendly. I was not happy that the other patients seemed very down and no one could ever smile. My mom is very out going and up beat. This community was not good for my mom to be in. Other families should consider other options
