We chose Sunrise because we thought it would be the last place that we would have to move him to. We were under the impression that they provided skilled nursing, but they do not. I felt like when we were being sold that it was misrepresented.

Outstanding administration and caring community of nurses and staff. We love the smaller number or residents at Sunrise and the high nurse to resident ratio. Most of all my mother was sold when she learned that there is a wonderful resident dog and cat on the premises for residents to enjoy. We are very happy with Sunrise as our choice!

Good For Memory Care

It is a nice place. It is expensive, but good for dementia. The staff are friendly and open. I'm not sure about the food, as I can only go off of what my loved one says. The community is good at keeping my loved one involved in activities.

My review of Sunrise of Wilmington

We really liked everything about Sunrise of Wilmington, we liked that they told us if our loved one needs outside services they would get the same workers every single time. However, the price was just to high for us especially given our loved ones were at level 3 care.

Sunrise is a Nice Place for Your Family Member

It's a beautiful place, kept up beautifully. It was really hard to see any of the amenities. Everything was closed up due to Covid. The staff is great. Whenever you called they gave you an answer, and they always called you back. They were always polite when we spoke to them. I would definitely recommend Sunrise of Wilmington.

Not an assisted living for Mom

The community has a great wrapped around porch, and a great cafe with popcorn and milkshake machine. But speaking with some of the elderly who live at this community as we were waiting for our tour. The cafe is just for show, the last time the milkshake machine worked was 3 years ago and they do get popcorn at movie times every night (Movie time every night). The apartments had a strange style, they had a half wall in the middle of the apartment. The Sales person said that was in case was to share an apartment, they have a half-wall to separate them. (Doesn't seem like much separation, The apartments went from really small (maybe a bed and nightstand fit in there, with barely any room for a walker to get around the both sides of the bed (twin bed). To a larger apartment (almost a one bedroom, but separated by the bathroom/kitchen area - no door technical). The base prices seemed good, but a lot of nickel and dime of additional cost. Depending on the amount of meds Mom takes, it could X amount for 1-5 a day, and XX for 5-9 a day and XXX for 10-15 a day. Community fee equal to one month's rent, including care... WHAT??!! Not a community for Mom

I had looked into Sunrise several years ago for my parents and it was top notch then, and continues to be, especially with the enhanced memory/care "neighborhood." [Name removed] was extremely helpful, as were Nurse [name removed] and Unit Manager [name removed] in their coming out to assess Mother's condition for entry to the facility. Excellent facility, resources, staffing; Sunset would be great if it were not for Mother's medical conditions precluding her acceptance at this time. Perhaps, in time, if she should improve, Mother would be a prime candidate for residency in the memory unit, but again, not a good fit for her at this time. Highly recommend Sunrise for those who are suitable.

Very nice facility, [Removed] was very helpful. The facility was very clean and the rooms were spacious. The residents appeared to be happy and spoke well of the food. This is the first facility that I visited but I would definitely consider this as a place for my Mom.

Not In Our Budget, But Tour Was Nice

My wife, and I had a pleasant tour of this community. Everything went pretty well, and everyone was kind to us. From what we saw the community looked good. Everything was nice, and clean. The staff was friendly, helpful. It was a good experience, but this community did not fit into our budget.

A tour

This looked like a nice community when I visited. The people I met were friendly. This community seems to offer some nice activities. The cost of this community was just a little higher than what we were looking for.

This is a nice community with a friendly staff. I toured it for my parents, and their needs. My tour went well overall, and everyone was kind to my family, and I. The community looked nice, and well-kept. It was a nice experience, and my tour was nice one.

A good decision for us

Mom has started to participate in some of the daily activities. The staff are attentive, available and responsive. The person we spoke to before mom moved in was honest and transparent. The food is good and they offer a good variety of choices. The community is well cared for and I feel comfortable with mom living here. This community is professionally run and I would recommend it.

Good Communication!!

At the beginning when i took a tour of the community there were a few services the place would not be able to assist the family with. The care for my loved one has been good so far. The staff are all nice and they try to provide my loved one a great level of care. Meal plans and activities are offered to the residents.
