Review ofSunrise at Fountain Square
4.9

I would say absolutely sign your loved one up and get them in there as soon as you can! Everybody was friendly. When you walk into a place like that, you expect a certain smell, but there was none of that. It smelled like they were making homemade cookies. Everyone was so o nice, and they took the proper Covid precautions, including requiring masks. The nursing staff was helpful, even if it wasn't a nurse assigned specifically to my mom. The food was okay, pretty good for the setting. The only gripe I have is I was charged a several thousand dollar move-in cost, and we had to move ourselves in entirely. They didn't even have a dolly for us to use. Also, the people who live there were walking in the hallways, so if you were standing there with a heavy piece of furniture, you had to wait for them to move out of the way. I would have expected for that move-in fee for someone to at least hold the door for us and clear the way. Aside from that move-in fee, the cost was good for the care they provided to my mom.

We had a very nice tour at Sunrise of Gurnee. The man who showed us around was very knowledgeable and helpful. The reason we didn’t go with them was because the cost was not all-inclusive. There seemed to be charges for every little thing that all added up.

This community looked awesome. It feels like you are walking into a casino for the elderly and the greeter is a dog. My feeling is that it was more for people that were more independent and did not need as much care as others.
