The facility is a lovely intimate setting like a home plus greeting from their dog made my Mom smile. We are taking my Mom to another facility to help her decide which one she’d like to move. Met all the staff who were professional and friendly

My mother was a resident of Sunrise of Upper St. Clair. The move from her forever home to the big house on the hill of Sunrise of Upper St. Clair was a huge change and adjustment. It did provide her a social connection with the outside world though with others in the same boat and for that reason and the ability for her live without the responsibilities of living at home helped in her in dealing with age related decline. The staff provided all of her creature comforts with care and compassion. It was a rich environment with good dining and recreational opportunities that met her emotional needs to a high standard of care. I thank the community at Sunrise all the way up to her last days. Everyone loved my mother at Sunrise.

Sunrise instills confidence

Our loved one tells us all the time that the food is good, and due to the covid restrictions all the activities they normal have are put to a stop. We just have a really good feeling that our loved one is well taken care of there. The grounds in the summer and fall are beautiful with all the gardens. We were able to visit outside last year on the porch and just being able to sit our there with the flowers was very nice.

Don't Go There

I would recommend they look elsewhere. The community is high in price. I couldn't get my loved one out of this community fast enough. My loved one kept pushing the alert button as she had fallen on the floor. The nurses left her, since they were too busy. The floors were never swept when I went to visit. They only provided one glass of water and coffee. If you were lucky you might get what you ordered food wise. The wait staff was the same as the ones taking care of my loved one.

Nice enough folks. Not enough care givers. Old style technology. You can push your pendent and wait for 45 minutes to respond. Dangerous stuff

I had a very nice meeting with [name removed]. The facility does provide a feeling of being at home but in a larger setting. The tour included a visit to two different room arrangements. You'll have to request a visit to experience it for yourself.

This property is so wonderful! I would give anything to place my love one here. The staff team is very nice and very accommodating. Unfortunately it is just too expensive for me to move forward with them.

Nice community

My wife was here for about a month then I had to bring her home. They billed you separately for everything so it got to expensive there. But the staff was nice and helpful. She would eat well 3x a day. It was clean in there and cleaned her room 1x a week. I would recommend this place if you have long term insurance.

Very nice facility. Staff seemed friendly. Very geared towards memory care. Staff do not wear scrubs or uniforms to make it a much more warm, homey environment. Lots of good activities for memory impaired residents.

Mom likes the food!

Sunrise Senior Living of Upper St. Clair is a wonderful and welcoming community. I like that it is an open and bright environment. The staff is very friendly and caring and welcoming when we come to visit. My mom enjoys the many activities they have to offer such as exercise class and going to the rosary and mass, but her favorite activity is breakfast, lunch, and dinner! The food is very good, they offer a wide variety of choices that you can order off of the menu. The landscaping is just beautiful, reminds me of a conservatory, the flowers are in bloom and the garden is almost ready for the residents to pick vegetables. I would highly recommend this community to others.

They pressured me!

I was not happy at the end of my tour of the Sunrise Senior Living. The lady that took me around, [Removed], was like a car salesman. When I was leaving she told me "you'll be back". She did apologize to me after but the place was not a good fit for my loved one.

Beautiful facility. Not sure my family member would like the "neighborhood concept".

Lovely Facility. Very Resort, Hotel feel throughout.Gorgeous lobby with lots of activity. Debbie, admissions, very caring , kind, and knowledgable. Negative-not all inclusive monthly fee; add ons for every thing which makes it difficult to predict final monthly cost. Plus $3000 one time application fee!

From soup to nuts, it’s (almost) the whole package!

Being a new family and my mom has had two other moves this year, I think things are working thus far better than the other first rated places. Health staff & care seem to fit her needs. Plus she has a caregiver 25 hrs/wk. Since it does not claim to be mostly for folks of the same faith, it’s a little overwhelming with xmas music playing so much. And they do not offer services for other faiths on site. So that would be nice. Love the pet therapy policy, It’s hard to get her to her doctors in the City, so we’ll have to see about getting her an alternate MD yet the better hospitals are in the City. Their care philosophy is a good one. “Aging in place”. The biggest problem is that at such a high cost of living, you’d think they would welcome credit card payments. I believe at this level of care, that should be a courtesy without question. A little policy & info sharing up front would help the transitions, otherwise, it’s as good as I’ve seen it at anywhere! And it’s at the top of a hill, to boot! Great sunrises! Keep up the good work!

We have fallen in Love!

Me and my loved one have fallen in love with this place. The staff is really caring and understanding. They have a lot of great activities like the pet therapy and the trivia games that they play. I also like that the staff does not allow the residents to lay around in bed unless they are sick. They try and get everyone involved.

Things are going pretty well considering.

I had to make the decision for Mom to go into Assisted Living after she had a stroke and required more care than what she could get at home. Since moving Mom to Sunrise she's been great and adjusting very well to the change. The staff are great and Mom has participated in the catholic mass. Sunrise has a community dog which I wasn't aware of because Mom is not a dog person but again she has adjusted well and really likes it there. There have been a few small set backs but all in all a good experience.

Very nice place, but expensive

I think Sunrise of Upper St. Clair does an exceptionally good job taking care of memory and dementia care residents.The facility is clean and well kept, and the staff are accommodating and professional. The only issue is the cost, which is very high. But if budget is not a concern you can't do better than Sunrise.

Grateful EVERY single day for Sunrise. I sleep well at night now.

I can not say enough about Sunrise of Upper St Claire. My mother was sitting in a nurshing home bed, gown open down her back saying: "what does it matter?" "who cares?" "what difference does it make", and the nurses were standing around recommending anti-depressants. ALL WE NEEDED was to get her OUT of there. She was to high a level of care for a low level of care Assisted Living, but NOW - she has joy - she plays cards EVERY where you look when you visit her in Memory Care, you see the heels of a care giver walking away AND the bright smile of another coming toward you. I had such stress and tears to see mother in that nursing home, NOW I have a peaceful smile on my pillow EVERY night when I go to bed. WORTH EVERY PENNY. Expensive - BUT THAT IS WHAT OUR PARENTS SAVED FOR: their old age. God Bless everyone who works at this wonderful facility. They are amazing. She also gets a jacuzzi bath - ALL other communities only had showers - mother was always a bath girl. THAT gives me joy as well!!!! She is bowel incontinent and 2 person assist. BUT - she can still play a mean game of other words ..she was VERY cognizant which is WHY she was so darn depressed in a NURSING HOME!!!!!!!!
