I Visited This Facility

Sunrise on the Scioto was a very nice place, and I liked it. The staff was very nice. They took me to the memory care section, which was very well taken care of. The rooms were great and very spacious. They even told us we could install a camera where we could watch my mom in her room, which most places won't let you do that. The grounds were well maintained. They were very friendly and nice to their residents.

Sunrise Scioto is an assist living and memory care community. The community is very attractive both inside and outside. When you enter the community the feeling reminds you of a bed and breakfast. The staff are welcoming and provide good customer service similar to a hotel. The community is open and well light but the homelike feeling gives off a cozy feeling. The nursing staff seemed to be involved with more than the care it's almost like the staff are personal care givers. The community has a good flow and the memory care staff is able to blend well with the assisted living residents. The apartments are average in size and fit the basic furniture without feeling crammed. The companion suites offer a like more room but over all the apartments are nice. The dinning room resembles a cafe and the food is tasty according to most residents and families.

This community is large but has a home-like feel to it. The front desk staff was very helpful and accommodating, it really felt as if you were entering a hotel setting. The residents were clean and appeared very happy. There was an activity going on at the time of my visit and many residents were engaged, the activity director had a lot of energy. I would recommend this community for those that are looking for a home like setting for their loved ones.
