Sunrise of Metairie

Review by Local Professional

Expert

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...

Consumer

I thought that Sunrise of Metairie was beautiful. The staff was wonderful, and the place was well-kept. It was just too expensive for my mother. I know they have a lot of activities; they had an ice cream party when we were there.
