    When one listens to the representatives from Sunrise talk about their facility it sounds wonderful. What one experiences is quite different. My father was accepted to stay at Sunrise in Minnetonka. We were told they could handle his Parkinson's disease and medication schedule. We were told he was able to go there and that they could handle it. We were told that they have other residents with similar issues. We did not sugar coat my Dad's condition at all. They were given 72 pages of nurses notes about my father and his recent history. They sent their own RN to examine and question him. They sent their social worker to review his case. My mother wrote them a check, we moved him in to his room. We thought it would be a great place for him. Boy, were we wrong. They are kicking him out as of tomorrow after only 4 days. Tonight is his last night there. They completely messed him up while he was there by missing his medications on his first day and also completely changing the medication schedule. My dad needs skilled care and they knew it, or they should have known it. I can't believe they allowed this to happen. They saw dollar signs when they reviewed my father's case. I'd think twice before allowing my loved one to stay here. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone who needs medications on a strict schedule! They are unable to follow a simple medication schedule. They have too few staff people on weekends to handle the situation. They don't know how to handle a person with Parkinson's disease and dementia. They completely misrepresented their ability to care for my father.
