The food at Sunrise of Gilbert was excellent, but my overall experience was not. Their airconditioning was too noisy, both in the rooms and in the common areas. The pool and jacuzzi were very small. They had an exercise room, bridge, cards, and other activities.Read more Sunrise of Gilbert reviews

Long-Term Care Insurance
If seniors have planned ahead and purchased a long-term care insurance policy, they can file a claim with their insurance provider to have a portion of their assisted living costs reimbursed.

In most cases, policies are only available to seniors who are in relatively good health and must be purchased before the need for long-term care exists.
