I visited this facility
I like the Sunrise of Crestwood because of the property location. It was a better location than the other Sunrise facilities. The people were very nice and helpful. Everybody treated me very well. There were all very forthcoming with information.

Some days there isn't anything fr the residents to do and the day can be dull and sad. I have found the food to be decent. The staff varies from employees who love their jobs, to employees who dont really care or do anything to improve a resident's day. Some residents definitely need more care than others and should probably be over to a nursing home. Having residents who require full time care undermines the values that the assisted living is trying to present. There should be dignity -- there is no dignity if someone who requires more care continues to live at Sunrise, when they would've better suited with full time care at a nursing home. Daily, a list of things to do is posted, but most residents are unaware of what is going on where and what time, due to the mere lack of communication. Also, if more employees coaxed residents to go out, I think it would be beneficial to the residents and the facility.
Sunrise at Crestwood is a gorgeous community, it is a little affluent and plush for my taste as I usually like more simple and down-to-earth, homey communities that are cozy and have a warmth about them. However, the residents are some of the sweetest people and they are what motivates me and makes me excited about visiting the community. I mean, don't get me wrong - the style, the architecture, the design, decor, and furnishings, the grounds and meticulous landscaping - it is one of the prettiest communities that I have ever seen. There is a very classic charm about the community, an almost Victorian feel. I do like the courtyard actually feels like a backyard, there is patio furniture, flowers, green lush grass for the kids to play - the grounds I love, all of the walking paths and sitting areas. I always see residents out there walking about and exploring, smiling away. They always look so calm and happy. It all is so gorgeous and I know the residents love it - it just is so perfect that it is TOO perfect. I am almost afraid to be in the facility in fear I will break something or make a mess.
There are many things for the residents to take part in, many activities, events, opportunities, programs, etc. The residents seem to be pretty outgoing and comfortable within the community, I just don't see them very relaxed when they are inside the facility. I always wonder if they are as worried as I am about breaking something. It can be very stressful and nerve-wracking! I want nothing more than for them to be very happy and to feel at home within the community, but as much as I want them to feel at home and to feel like they can be themselves, I don't think that they do feel those things - I hate to think that they are like walking on eggshells throughout the community or in constant self-doubt because they don't feel like they belong - I get that sense from them, I talk to them all the time and they seem to open up to and a few of them have said things that concern me, that make me think that they feel they don't belong and that makes me so sad for them - nobody likes to feel like they don't belong, ESPECIALLY in your own home. It makes me wonder if that's why I always see so many of them spending time outside - like they'd rather be out there - I know I would, it's beautiful and it's okay to move around and it's good not to constantly worry about messing things up.
Sunrise at Crestwood is, yes - undoubtedly - probably one of the most gorgeous communities I have seen, but I would love to see the staff members encourage the residents to just let loose a little, and for the staff and residents a like to be less stiff, less quiet. I want to see the residents have fun and express themselves -and BE THEMSELVES. I want to see them feel comfortable and happy and I don't understand why the staff members do not see them so closed and clammed up and not do anything about it - they should encourage the residents to break free from their stresses and worries and just be at peace and they should find ways to show the residents that they DO belong and that they are special. I hope that this eventually happens - sometimes I think someone should just break something in the facility just to show the residents that it's okay that the world is not crumbling down around them because they broke a figurine or knick-knack.
