Sunrise was very clean and very neat. I liked the rooms and the fact that they let you use the furniture in the room. The staff was pleasant. The location was very good, it was off the road in a quiet area with nice landscaping.
Brighton Gardens impressed me. The tour was very good and everything was clean. The residents appeared happy. They had a lot of activities planned, and I got to see the residents involved in those activities and during mealtime. The food and living conditions looked good. There seemed to be a lot of employees there. It was decorated nice. The location and grounds were good. They had a walking path and walking group for the residents. I saw that they were having a birthday for one of the residents who was turning 100. They had matching tablecloths, nice place settings, and a vase of flowers on each table. It almost looked like a restaurant. The people looked and smiled at us. They were having a conversation while they were eating, and I saw a lot of employees.
Sunrise of Lafayette Hill was personal care and assisted living. It's gorgeous. Pricing was more a la carte than a flat fee, so if you need more help, then that's more money per month. It's very pretty with a great layout. They had a dining room, cafe, activities, and it looked more like a big house inside with a staircase and a living room with TVs. It's not institutional-looking like some of them. The caregivers seemed very nice and knew what they're talking about. The menus were beautiful. The grounds were pretty, and they had a little dog that lived there who roams around. I think they can have pets in their rooms, but they charge extra. I would recommend it if people can afford it.
Sunrise of Lenexa was very nice but multi-level, and the only room they had open at the time was on the third floor. My mother has myopathy in her legs, and I wanted her to be on ground level. For people who are pet-friendly, they do allow pets, which to me would have been a bonus. Other than that, it was a very nice place. The staff was very nice, informative, warm, and approachable. We were there for lunchtime, and everybody was there, and it was very nice. It looked like a restaurant atmosphere, not like a regular cafeteria. We didn't eat there, but it smelled great.
Brighton Gardens was very nice. The atmosphere was very good. The staff was friendly, accommodating, helpful, and very informative. The grounds were very nice, well decorated, well maintained, and clean. Everybody looked like they were having a good time. The dining area was nice. They were painting the unit that we looked at. We also saw one model room that was very nice.
Sunrise of Shelby Township was a beautiful place, but the price was way out of our price range. The amenities were great. The rooms were the probably the best that I had seen. The common areas were very well appointed, but there were lots of different charges. They charged per medication. The dining area was very nice. It was more like a hotel.
Sunrise of Granite Run was a very nice place, and the staff was very friendly. We ate lunch there, but the food was not good enough for the person who would go there. The rooms were nice. All rooms in all thre buildings were about the same, well kept, and well equipped for people needing assistance. They had a nice lounge and a good view.
Brighton Gardens of Winston-Salem has well-organized staffing. It was clean. Residents appear to be content. We saw several rooms that seemed adequate. The facility's layout was good. We had lunch there, and the food was fine. The dining area was clean and sufficient.
Sunrise of Alta Loma was nice, and the people were very pleasant. I did not have a meal there, but their dining area was nice and rooms were adequate. I felt like it’s a comfortable place. They had movies and different local groups that come in. The staff was definitely good at answering my questions, so that was nice.
Sunrise of Norwood was wonderful. My grandmother was there for just a little less than two months. The apartments were beautiful. They had a bathroom that was made for older folks, and a little kitchenette area where she could have a two top table. They also had a big room that could be split between the bedroom, and the living room. The heat was comfortable. There were very good caregivers. The dining room was beautiful. They had lots of activities, but she unfortunately was not willing to participate in very many of them. They had great staff, great activities, and it's a great facility. It's a beautiful building outdoors, and when you come up to it; it's a big old Victorian looking home.
Sunrise of Staten Island is very homey, very comfortable. My mom’s only there for a month and the staff seemed very nice. She’s very happy and she said that they take really good care of her. They have some exercises, they play games, and there’s a lot of music, a lot of sing-along.
My mother is in Sunrise (Sunrise of Staten Island). We liked it initially because of its location and it’s a beautiful facility, but it is costing almost $10,000 a month, which is extremely high. They don’t take Medicaid, so when my mother’s funds run down, we have to move her some place else. I think the service is good and the staff is nice. I’ve eaten there, and it’s a controlled menu because of the many medical things they are watching out for everybody.
My mom is in Sunrise. The care has been excellent, so far. She is getting her hydro three times a week and not being rushed like she was at the other place she used to live. They really try to clean the residents and make them feel that their needs are being met. The food is really good. She is in a shared apartment for the first time. Her bedroom is a nice, large room, and the shared common area is small. They have been going to various activities, get manicures on the weekends, and have dances. On Friday night, they had a sing-along with the Sunrise chorus, which was lots of fun.
I enjoyed Brighton Gardens of Greensboro as much as the other place I visited. There are a couple of people who live there that my husband would know, so it would be like having friends there already. I saw a physical therapist working with one person and another therapist who was working. I stopped to speak with her and with a gentleman on that floor. He was talking about the facility and how they treat their residents on that particular wing, which just had memory loss people and what I was interested in. It seemed like I could get along with the staff. Everybody was so friendly and it didn’t seem like they were doing it because they had me there. I think it’s just the way they are.
I really like Sunrise. The people there were very happy, smiling, and very friendly. It was a very warm and inviting community with a garden, lots of activities, and restaurant-style dining. The rooms were very clean and had balconies. The price was OK. It was the one that we felt had the most home-like atmosphere as it felt more comfortable and very homey. Everybody was together, knew each other, were warm, and talked to each other. The staff was very caring and helpful. My mom really wants to move there. The financial committee is not very good in getting back when you have questions; that part was a little confusing to me. We are trying to figure out how much the monthly bill would be, so we called and they didn’t get back to me. The parking lot situation is a bit difficult. Sometimes they have activities, and the people don’t come. My mom and dad are good with the food because mostly it’s good.
My first impression of Sunrise of Gurnee was when I made the appointment to go see it, they called me back to confirm, and when I got there, they acted like they were surprised to see us. The woman who eventually took us around was very nice. My mother liked it because it was VERY social. There were lots of activities, and I thought the facility was very nice. People seemed to be very happy there, and we saw a lot of interaction. They showed us a big room that I was very impressed with. My mother would have been sharing the memory care room with another Alzheimer's patient, and I didn’t like the idea, but I thought the folks were very nice. It was very social which is what my mother is looking for, and I thought she could be happy there.
Sunrise of Frederick was fine. It was a very nice and clean place. The tour was fine, but we were just with one individual the whole time. They were very thorough, helpful, and answered all of our questions. The dining area was nice and very restaurant-like.
The staff at Sunrise at Sterling Canyon was a fantastic place, but the layout would not fit my mother-in-law. They had different activities going on for the residents. I did not see any resident there looking miserable.
