I Visited This Community

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.
