If you are reading this review, I would imagine you are caring for a loved one that has some form of Alzheimer\'s or Dementia and is progressing. Our mother was declining and needed further full time care. If you have begun the search to find a facility or community that cares for loved ones with memory loss, you already know how difficult this task is and will become. As you begin your search, you either find a facility that is out of your price range or looks like a hospital environment with little or no ongoing stimulation-emotionally or physically. Certainly not a place you envision your loved one to be happy, truly cared for and loved. It was an incredible blessing when my daughter came across Sunshine Village in Phoenix. I was greeted on the phone by the most amazing, dedicated and truly loving women Judy B., the Community Resource Director. Judy truly listens to the needs of your loved one and the family, and assesses the situation to ensure that Sunshine Village is the proper placement for your loved one. When we toured Sunshine Village, I truly felt that God guided us here. IT IS A COMMUNITY UNLIKE ANY OTHER! Security is of the utmost importance, the grounds are beautifully kept, the staff is always welcoming and pleasant. The setting is exactly a little community of 7-4,000 sq ft cottages placed in a cul-de-sac setting that is completely secure, where your loved one can walk and visit throughout the community. Sunshine Village is truly a \"Safe Haven\". Judy went above and beyond to assist us in placing Mom in the appropriate cottage within Sunshine Village (along with Patty-Head Nurse) to ensure Mom was placed with other loved ones on the same level of memory loss and mobility. Sean M., the Director of Sunshine Village is compassionate and also has dedicated a lot of love into this community. They have stimulating daily activities that include motor skills-exercise-social interaction just to name a few, Michelle who takes the time to make your loved one feel special in the Salon, 24 hr assistance through caregivers that tend to the needs of daily needs, meals-hygiene-housekeeping. Thank you to everyone at Sunshine Village for giving our Mother a beautiful community that she can call home. Our family feels extremely blessed and at peace that our Mother is now being cared for with love. --
Sunshine Village was nice and had individual cottages with about 10 people in each. They have many activities, and I felt like it was a good place. It's not that big, but it was very clean, neat and well kept. Even in the memory care, they try to keep them busy with music and entertainment coming in. They have a big, secure porch outside. It was very pleasant and nice with flowers, trees, and green lawns.
When I first visited this facility several years prior for an event that was taking place, upon entering the lobby, I noticed that the facility was quite dirty. There were stains on the flooring and furniture and there was a very foul distinct odor in the air. I stayed for the event although, very few residents showed up and the event was very poorly managed and seemed to be really unorganized – a train wreck in all honesty. I left there feeling confused as to what had just taken place. So, earlier this year, when a colleague of mine asked me to accompany her to the facility for yet another event, let’s just say that I was quite hesitant, but I owed it to the residents to give the facility a second chance or to advocate on behalf of the residents for better living arrangements. From the moment we pulled into the parking lot, I noticed quite a bit of change. The parking lot itself was clean, free of litter, unlike my earlier visit. The grounds were beautiful and well landscaped, there looked to be much more ground vegetation that appeared to be kept properly trimmed, well cared for, and frequently maintained. The fountain, which was broken during my prior visit was flowing beautifully, really adding to the beauty of the landscape. The grass was also a deep green and looked positively inviting. Without even having stepped foot into the facility, I could sense that such positive change had taken place since my last visit, just by how beautiful the grounds were kept. I was right. Once in the facility, the first thing I noticed, was that the distinct foul odor which had once stung my nose was gone - the facility, this time, smelled clean and fresh. The stains that I had once seen were also gone. Residents were freely walking about, socializing, and keeping busy – I loved seeing so many residents out in the common areas – this was the biggest change from my visit before, when most of the residents were in their apartments and hardly any of them showed up for the event. Thankfully, this time around, this was not the case because when the concert we were there for was about to begin, residents and their families/visitors began filling the area until it was literally standing room only! The concert was very fun and well organized, much better than the previous event. The residents and their visitors really seemed to enjoy themselves and the entertainment and I thoroughly enjoyed the positive changes I saw during this second visit to Sunshine Village!
