Sunrise at Siegen in Baton Rouge, LA
3.6

I think no matter how prepared you are, you're not going to cover everything. It's a learning experience. Try to have patience and give things time. And every one of our loved one's needs are different, like fingerprints. Try not to beat yourself up too bad about your decision. Looking back on the several months my loved one has been there now, it seems to have gotten better, and it does seem to have been the best answer. It's a lot of money, but they're able to provide the extra care we're not able to. And I think she's happier. She gets to focus on the here and now. I promised my father that I would keep her safe, and I think with Sunrise that I've met that obligation. The staff are absolutely very friendly. Activities seem to be good. Talking to my loved one, she's raved about someone they had come by to sing one night, and they play lots of games. They send out a newsletter. I'm sure that there are more expensive, better places, and I know there are less expensive, worse places. So here locally in the Baton Rouge area, I would put them in the top two thirds of places. It's terrible that money has to come down to a consideration for something like this, but that's life. But I think we've made the right choice. It's in a good location for our family to stop by and visit. It's convenient right off the highway. I think it was the right call for us.

The community is kept clean, we have had no problems with the staff they are friendly. Sometimes the people who handle the laundry service lose some of our loved ones clothes, but that is about the only issue we are having. We haven't been able to be there for meal time but by the sound of it are loved one is enjoying the meals. She is always participating in the activities they offer.

Senior activities

Despite seeming like it may live in the shadow of its bigger sibling New Orleans, Baton Rouge has a character and a charm much its own, especially appealing to those who don’t feel at home in a large urban area. As the state capital and home of Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge still has plenty of activities and goings-on that you might expect from a larger city, but without the hectic pace. Baton Rouge has also earned the distinction of being home to the largest shopping mall in Louisiana. The aptly named Mall of Louisiana is a two-story affair with over one hundred retailers, as well as a multiplex movie theater, and interestingly enough, the third-largest indoor carousel in the world.
