Review by Sharon A. - Penrose Senior Care Auditors®
An easily accessible facility with beautifully landscaped and clean grounds. There were comfortable looking chairs tastefully placed around the outside entry area. Once inside I was greeted by a receptionist and a friendly and helpful Director of Sales, Theresa. The dining area was set for lunch in brown and beige linen and many well-dressed residents were seating themselves. Theresa gave me a program of daily events. I give this property five stars on cleanliness and good taste.
Sunrise at La Costa is a great facility for seniors needed assisted living or seniors who have memory case needs. The staff are very caring and address the residents by name. The residents are treated like family and taken care of by a well-trained, attentive staff.
This facility offers a bistro that operates 24 hours a day and provides snacks and foods. There also is an array of amenities including a media and activity room. The activities are stimulating and range from arts/crafts to sing a longs. There is also transportation to the medical appointment and a medical facility within two miles. Although moderately populated, the facility has a home like feel and is a perfect facility for seniors who need attention and quality care.
This facility offers memory care and assisted living. Most of the that care for residents with memory challenges seemed fairly knowledgeable of the therapeutic process. Still, there were a few staff members who I felt was lacking training in this area. The staff were, however, very nice and helpful.
The property is maintained well and is clean throughout. The rooms are adequate in size, but are not very modern. Nevertheless, the rooms and the facility is cozy and comfortable. The outside of the facility is serene and offers seating for residents/visitors. I think that this is an above average facility that even offers a 24 hour bistro, transportation, (additional cost) and lots of physical and social activities. Seniors looking for assisted living and those with mild dementia and memory needs should consider this facility for a permanent home.
Very beautiful facility located only a few miles from shopping and restaurants. This facility is clean throughout and has an open and functional floor plan. There is not many places within walking distance, but the facility offers transportation at an additional cost.
There is much to do on site including a media room, TV room, workout room, and activity room. The facility is moderately sized which adds to the warm feel of this assisted living facility. The residents and the staff were quite friendly, and I like the area surrounding the facility because it is scenic and peaceful.
A great memory care program also is housed at this facility, and the care is above average.
There are upsides and downsides to Sunrise at Parma. Some of the upsides to this facility are that the building is lovely and has very nice outdoor areas. There’s a nice sitting area beneath a gazebo where residents can sit and enjoy the sun. Inside the building is quite clean and well managed as well. Some of the downsides to this facility are that the staff doesn’t appear to be very helpful or friendly and the meals here seemed a bit lackluster.
This facility has so much to offer their residents with a wide variety of activities and events as well as day trips. The exterior looks like a lodge and is well manicured and kept. The meals are made from scratch with fresh ingredients to make a well balanced meal. You feel as if you are in a fine dining establishment. The staff is very friendly and welcoming to individuals, a very caring staff. There are different room floor plans depending on the individuals needs, but each room is comfortable and well lit.
Sunrise of Jacksonville is a unique living facility located on three acres. Upon arrival, one notices the architecture of the building and its impeccably maintained grounds. There is a dementia and rehabilitative unit as well. The activities include music appreciation, cooking, yoga, walking and artistic endeavors. My first impression was that the residents truly appeared to be at peace and resonate happiness. The seniors on the dementia unit were engaged in the music appreciation. It had a calming effect on their demeanor. It improved their disposition. Visiting Sunrise of Jacksonville was an enjoyable experience.
The Sunrise in Park Ridge is a beautiful facility. It is clear that much thought has been put into providing a superior quality of life for seniors. The multiple activity areas are lively, and the apartment layouts are quite comfortable—even the studios are spacious.
The staff is very hands-on and engaged with the residents, but has area of opportunity when it comes to communicating with family members.
This is a pricy facility, but worth every penny for those who can afford it.
This facility lives up to the “bed and breakfast” style setting it is designed to have. There are even fresh flowers placed in many of the common areas, which further makes the Sunrise feel like home.
The staff to resident ratio is higher than many facilities, which is especially important since the facility specializes in dementia and Alzheimer’s—but also offers assisted living and hospice care.
The common areas, combined with the daily activities, and group outings make the facility a suitable place for seniors who can no longer drive—or have somewhat limited mobility. May not be the best place for seniors who are still active and independent this is a fairly laidback senior residence.
What a beautiful facility you will find at Sunrise at Buckhead. I toured the facility after attending a conference in their building. It is easily compared to a fine hotel. The staff presents themselves as you would expect from employees at that same fine hotel - Well dressed, well mannered, well spoken, and caring. You put it all together and you find a place that is exceptional in care for residents. I recommend Sunrise at Buckhead. Although I have not eaten at Sunrise at Buckhead, a review of their lunch and dinner offerings was impressive. Care and thought went into offering several choices with nutrition in mind.
Sunrise of Leominster is a unique facility since it offers both reminiscence and independent programs for its seniors. There are one and two bedroom apartments available for self-sufficient independent residents as well as the reminiscence neighborhood for those of whom suffer from Alzheimer's disease. I witnessed the residents engaged in music in the reminiscence neighborhood. They would sing and dance to the music. In addition, for the more active individuals there are shopping excursions. The menu is carefully tailored to each resident's dietary regimen. The facility is located within the city of Leominster. There are local businesses and restaurants within walking distance. There is an outdoor gazebo and sufficient acreage for activities. There is a library and large activities room with a baby grand piano for entertainment. Residents are encouraged to be independent and active within the community. Several types of insurances are accepted. The residents of both programs are very outspoken which was something that this reviewer enjoyed.
Staff is friendly and very knowledgeable about a range of resident's needs, including dementia, frailty of age, alzeihmers, and memory care. Staff are properly trained and aware of resident's needs, so the facility is relatively safe for your loved ones. Spacious building with free coffee and cookies at the coffee shop. Dining hall is also set like a restaurant.
This is a lovely facility in the heart of the congested Lincoln Park area of Chicago. Lots of shopping and eateries nearby and also close to public transportation It is immaculate and there are not any bad smells anywhere. There is a therapy dog which is often near the reception desk to greet residents -- very gentle and loving. On the main floor is a little eatery. The place seems welcoming and friendly. There is a separate unit for people with Alzheimer's Disease which is composed of a large den-like area where people can watch television and residents have their own rooms. Staff is professional. Only downside is the parking area which has limited space and it is difficult to find parking in the area.
Accompanying her husband on a musical instrument, a woman bestows the joyous sounds of delightful folk music on the resident's ears. Typically found on the 3rd floor of the facility, she plays the oboe for the residents along with her husband. A very bustling and lively scene, you feel invigorated and energized walking through the facility. With various residents playing bingo, engaging in games, solving puzzles, activities are typically scheduled and planned ahead of time to include breakfast, lunch, and dinner outings, but mostly, activities are scheduled within the facility on virtually an hourly basis. Residents who enjoy always having something to do will greatly enjoy this atmosphere, including visiting the science museum, attending shows, or watching plays.
For pet-lovers and animal enthusiasts, this facility offers a great option for living on site with your animal or pet. The facility also provides the option for socializing at various events or activities with different residents, such as music or dance festivals throughout the week. Specific to this facility, however, is the use of memory-sensory items found all across the hallway, to aid and assist patients with dementia or alzeihmers throughout the day.
The staff at the sunrise of Burlington are very supportive of the residents due to special memory and cognitive impairements. The house program "reminiscence" is tailored for their residents. Activities include "Sunrise morning strollers" at 10:00 am every day. On site catholic services with communion on Tuesdays. Brain Gym is another program to keep the residents engaged. The residents seem happy and relaxed.
nice location and very easy to get to this facility is one nice feature. Well kept grounds and nice exterior appearance makes it very appealing. Inside a beautiful reception area, very nice dinner room and great nice rooms private or semi private. What they have here the best is the service. The small bistro style place its a nice feature of course but more important is that they are adjusting the menus and for some people this is very important. I had the gluten free menu and I was surprised how well was done, I was very happy to find a good gluten free chef. I liked the place and although I was just visiting I felt good about the place during my few hours visit.
I totally recommend this place and I think for the services they offer they make a great job. I do think you should see other communities and compare as prices may be better in other places but if you decided on this one I don't think you will regret.
Sunrise of Plano is an astounding senior community. The residents are very vibrant and self-sufficient. The rooms are large and some have full kitchens. Cabinets are plentiful rather it's a full kitchen or kitchenette. The building is packed with amenities to fulfill the seniors daily. The outdoor space is beautifully landscaped with wide walking paths. The porch and sunroom areas have comfortable chair and relaxing views. The staff is always happy to assist residents when necessary. There are services available to make daily living stress-free. Activities are fun and enlightening. The meals are great and liked among the residents and staff.
Sunrise of Metairie is a very clean and well maintained community. The staff here seemed a little preoccupied because they did not acknowledge me, but were helpful once I got their attention. The food was great, I had chicken and rice that was seasoned well but still healthy. I didn't get to see any activities taking place, but the calendar was well planned. This community is clean and smells nice.
I had the privilege of visiting Sunrise of Des Peres. I was amazed at the many different activities one can indulge in. Like the fitness center, movie room, and outside deck. The community is small, but decorated nice. And equipped with many luxurious amenities. They provide 3 great meals with many choices from the beverage bars. I didn't interact with staff, but I do know living at the community you get help to maintain independence. The rooms are comfy and comes with a garden view from some windows to watch the sunrise in Des Peres!
Sunrise of Fort Worth is located just minutes from Kindred Hospital. The building is lovely inside and out. It feels a bit like a resort when it come to the design and layout. The common areas are clean and organized. The rooms are open and modern. The courtyard has a large gazebo and walking path. The care plans are individualized to maintain a well balanced lifestyle. The staff is great and caring. They are very passionate and informative when it comes to their memory care program. Meals are served resturant-style in the dining room. There is a small bistro-like area for snack and beverages throughout the day. The activities are very stimulating and fun. The Activities Coordinator encourages the residents to participate with new hobbies and to stay active through exercising and thinking games.
Sunrise of Walnut Creek is a nice, relatively small senior community. They have 60 assisted living units and 19 memory care units, all single occupancy. Each unit has a small fridge, but residents are asked to bring their own microwaves. They have nice gathering areas, a nice courtyard, and a bistro for snacks throughout the day. They also have an on-site beauty salon and 2 hydro tubs for residents' uses. They are pet friendly and their is no charge unless the resident needs their pet cared for. They also have daily exercise classes, nightly movies, and weekly excursions.
In addition, they are very conveniently located to two hospitals, satellite medical offices, and mere steps from Doctors' Park, which makes accessibility to going to the doctor extremely convenient.
The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and outgoing. It is a very clean and peaceful environment for its residents.
The staff here are so friendly and inviting! The facility is very welcoming as well but what makes this place stand out are the activities. A unique and very popular activity is ceramics (though there are some extra costs) as well as the art program, where they study and discuss various artists and then paint. They are very involved in the community as well so trips to the Morton Arboretum and seeing places at the local college are always on the calendar. The meals are fantastic, with a variety of options each meal. And if residents don't like what is being offered, they can request other options like breakfast for dinner. The only downside is there isn't much within walking distance.
A very nice facility. The residents all appeared to be happy and communicating well with each other. I have never had their food. The building is quite inviting, and the staff seems well educated. This is essential when caring for senior citizens. The way a building looks and is maintained has a direct impact on how residents feel about themselves. The education of the staff, too, has a massive impact on day to day life. I believe they do a good job at Sunrise on Providence.
A beautiful facility, and the staff seemed to be caring and interactive with the residents. I recommend Brighton Gardens. They have a great concern about educating their staff on dementia care. This is essential as our population ages and dementia becomes more prevalent. I enjoyed my tour, and I have referred individuals to their facility. Their residents are very interactive with visitors, and they speak well about their home. Brighton Gardens is a place I recommend.
