A place I'm happy my mom is at.

For the most part, it's been a very good experience. I think there's a little bit of an issue with communication in certain departments, particularly the medical/nursing department. My loved one says the food is okay. She doesn't really eat meat, and they serve a lot of meat. So she's mostly eating sandwiches. But otherwise, it's a very nice place.... Read more

Would Recommend

The care that my parents are getting is very good. This is location has 2 floors. They offer transportation bus to the store, but not for appointments. They allow pets. They use a portal for billing. The staff communicate with calls and group emails to the family. The residents are friendly. The staff has been very warm and welcoming to my parents.

No Longer Worried They Are On Their Own

The staff is caring; however, it seem they are stretched due to not enough staff in the community. The basic care price is good, the price goes up based on the level of care your loved one needs. The staff stays on top of the care.

A Clean, Friendly Environment for Your Loved One

This is a very good community. I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones. Everyone is very nice and friendly to the residents and family. They take great care of the residents. The community is nice and clean anytime I visit. They have a fenced off area for the memory care residents to utilize.

My review of Sunrise at West Essex

My mother is very happy here!

She moved in a week before COVID so we haven't been able to go visit. When we did move her in though, the activities coordinator seemed to be very engaged with the residents, always trying to keep them engaged and active even on lock down. . The food is good my mother hasn't complained yet. The staff is very good with keeping the families informed with what is going on on a daily basis. For the memory care side every thing is on the first floor, which makes everything very accessible. We like the way it looks on the outside. When we moved her in we were able to see her room which is pretty good in size.

Be careful

I feel like that evaluation wasn't accurate and they immediately said my mother was appropriate and could meet her needs but they could not. Also, the coordinator of the memory care had no medical background or knowledge. The staff were not loving at all. They just ignored my mother. The staff would blame everything she did on her. They "nickel and dimed" us for everything, costing $30,000 in just two months. It was an incredibly expensive mistake. I would highly suggest that if you are considering placing your loved one at Sunrise's memory care, ask for a trial period first.

Very nice facility. Hosted by Director of Sales, [name removed], I was able to tour multiple areas and rooms, and see residents involved in numerous activities. Wasn't able to get a firm cost estimate, as services tend to be level of care-related, kind of an ala carte basis. Hope to have a firm number soon. Sunrise is definitely on our "strong possibility" list. Thank you, [name removed], for your kind attention.

We chose this place for my sister-in-law because of the Memory Care Unit.On the tour , we were impressed by the friendly staff and the cleanliness of the facility.On subsequent visits, we were convinced we have made the right choice for her.Our A Place for Mom advisor [name removed] has been with us every step of the way. So have [name removed] and [name removed] from Sunrise. We needed their support when an unexpected hospitalization really gobsmacked us.Thankfully, everything worked out. A big plus for us is that our Siberian Husky Sky can visit her " Mommy Susie ", as I know that they do miss each other.

Our visit

The community seemed clean. I was not impressed with this community. The person that assisted us with our tour talked to us and acted like my loved one was not in the room. He felt disrespected and this was not the way we wanted him treated.

Check out Sunrise at West Essex

I just moved my mother into Sunrise at West Essex in NJ. I rated the above categories based upon her initial move-in, not weeks of experience. So far, my experience with this Sunrise location has been great. They are all so friendly and helpful. My mother seems to have come back to life when she moved in, with all the people interactions and activities. I definitely have peace of mind with them. The top administrator and nurse were especially comforting and helpful.

Wonderful Tour!

The community at Sunrise at West Essex offered a wonderful tour. The staff Ellen was fantastic! She was extremely friendly and helpful with our search for senior living. They offered to help with VA assistance once we were paid in after so many months. They were very knowledgeable and addressed all of my concerns.
