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.

They are highly flexible. We appreciate that they accept VA benefits. And they're pretty conscientious. When they hire, there's a pretty thorough screening process. The owners are amazing. We've had just one caregiver the whole time. My loved one feels really comfortable with her. We've had some last-minute schedule changes, and she's been there for about 99% of them to help us out. She's pretty friendly and stays on top of things. My loved one doesn't need a high level care, but she's there to help with some of the things he does need.
