I visited this facility

I walked out of Sunset Park Place and said my mother-in-law is never going to stay there. Nobody related to me is staying in a place like that. Right away, we knew we didn't like this place because they had staff standing outside the front door smoking cigarettes. It just wasn't a very comfortable feeling. Sunset Park Place was much less expensive, and on the surface, it appeared to have many amenities, but when you dug down a little bit, they weren't as available as you like. Also, it didn't appear to be well organized. Everything was cheap. The woman who gave us a tour was frazzled, not dressed professionally, and not especially knowledgeable.

Our next door neighbor was recently diagnosed with cancer and decided to move closer to her son in Dubuque, Iowa. Being elderly she needed help and many at our church decided to volunteer this past weekend and help move her. She moved into a town house on the estate, but she was given a full tour which included the assisted living/independent living complex. While the amenities were fairly normal, restaurant style meal, nursing staff, laundry and cleaning services. Overall, the facility was well-designed. It was beautifully built and had nice woodwork inside. One of the nice things I noticed was that because of the layout, the whole community can move around pretty easily, there are very few stairs and people move around quite a bit as there seems to be a good sense of community as while we were there many people came to see her as we moved her in and many people also came and saw us as we went on the tour. It was nice to see people being social and curious about new neighbors.

This facility took excellent care of my Grandmother after her accident. The staff was always there to answer any questions, and make her comfortable. The grounds were nicely kept, and always clean. The outdoor seating area was beautiful, especially the garden that they had for the residents and their families to tend. Very friendly and nice all the way around! My grandmother was able to go home after a very short stay due to the great rehabilitation programs that they have, including the jacuzi tub therapy. If there is ever a need for any family member to recieve rehab services we are going to be sure to look into this facility before any others here in town. Very courteous staff that went above and beyond expectaions on a daily basis! In this day and age it is hard to find the kind of compassion and zest for life that the staff here has shown. I would deffinately reccommend this facility to any of my friends and neighbors that may be i nneed of assisted living and or rehab services.
