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.
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.
Outside, Sunrise of Schaumburg was beautiful. Inside, it was extraordinarily cold and bright because it had so many windows. There was nobody in the dining room and nobody in the common area on the main floor. I did get a tour of the memory care upstairs, which was very nice. There was a lot of interaction with the staff, and the areas were very nice, very homey, and comfortable. People seemed very content. I think they had several different setups of rooms with some more spacious than others. They had a nice variety of levels of care and had a program that let move in and try it out for a month.
Sunrise was very nice. They had a resident golden retriever, which I know is great for some seniors. It is a beautiful community with nice-sized rooms. The location was a little better in relation to my parents' doctors. However, the pricing was quite high and different from the other communities.
My cousin has been receving very good care at Sunrise at Fountain Square for about 3 ½ years now and is very comfortable. The meals are really good. He is a big eater, so they always give him double portions if he wants. They have a good variety of food on the menu. They have an on-call doctor who comes periodically. You can also have your own doctor visit. They have registered nurses and a lot of caregivers who really care. The place is very clean and well maintained.
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.
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.
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.
This community is an excellent example of the importance of really taking a close look at things.
The location is ideal for active seniors, the menu is better than average, the daily itinerary encourages socialization, and the building is clean and beautiful.
If a senior is only looking for minimal help, then this could be a good fit. However, if more skilled care is required, or if the need for care increases—then staffing is not always adequate. Although the staff is friendly and sincere, the response times are inconsistent.
My dad has been a resident at Sunrise of Willowbrook for 2 months. The transition from living in his own home to assisted living was not easy for him. His plan was to live out the rest of his days in his own home. After a nasty fall it became clear that he could no longer handle being at home.
From the first night we learned the people at Willowbrook are incredibly understanding, caring and compassionate. I have seen this first hand with my dad and with other residents in my frequent visits. From the director, to the care manager, to the caregivers, and the receptionists - each person will go out of his/her way to ensure each resident and their family members feel comfortable and assured every step of the way.
Two months into his stay the time came for us to move my dad with us to Kansas and he asked if we could please find a way for him to stay here! "I like it here, the food is good, there is great music, my room is nice, and the people are really nice". We are thrilled that he has found his new home and have found a way to make his wishes come true.
People were very friendly. The place is quite nice, especially when compared to other assisted living facilities in the area. The decision to go with a full time caregiver ruled this out as an option. If the finances werent available for the full time option, this would have been the place.
