I visited this facility

We visited Sunrise of Gilbert. The staff was fine. They were very busy. It seemed a bit crowded, but it was nice. We had lunch there, it was great, and the people were nice. The dining room was more crowded. The spaces between tables were more crowded. It was like an old hotel with meandering rooms that you could get lost in.

The rooms had two options. You could have a shared room arrangement. It was two bedrooms and a little courtyard area with a little connecting room wherein you had individualized apartments. The other room was like an efficiency room, which was OK. They had a variety of activities, things to do, and places to go. There were senior memory care activities that were fine. It was secured enough. The reason why we didn't choose it was because it didn't have weekly respite care; you had to go there for two weeks but we needed it for eight days.

Sunrise of Gilbert has a transition of program in which you live in the second floor of the assisted living; they would provide a particular program and routine. The rooms are smaller, and they don’t have any access to independent living. But other than that, the staff was very good; they were accommodating. I would like to see some ways they’ll not separate so much the different levels. They don’t have a way in which you can interact with others.

I did not Sunrise of Gilbert. It was a cramped place to live, it just didn't suit us at all. I had no problem with the staff. I think her name was Liza, and she was excellent. The rooms were really small.

Sunrise is a beautiful place, but it’s too expensive for us. The dining room is beautiful; it’s a big dining room with white tablecloths. It’s a big, well-run facility.

Sunrise is outstanding. It's a very nice facility. The staff could not be nicer. I like the caring element of the staff. I would rate the food as good.

Sunrise of Gilbert was quite nice and homey. It's not too far from downtown. The staff was very nice. They had a nice little dog outside, and everybody was fine with that.

The staff that we've met at Sunrise have been incredibly kind and incredibly caring. I've been really impressed by the way they've treated my in-laws, especially my mother-in-law. She has severe dementia. My father-in-law had been taking care of her. He had a stroke and could no longer take care of himself or her. She was very angry and difficult about having to move to assisted living, but they were just so gentle and kind with her. They gradually turned her around to the point where I think she's starting to enjoy living there.

The prep going in wasn't quite as good as I would expect. We had to move my in-laws very quickly because they could not be left alone. So we didn't give Sunrise a whole lot of notice before we had to move them in. When we moved them in, there were problems with the apartment. It had gotten new carpeting the day before, and the carpet installers had messed up the paint in there, and it took a bit before they were able to completely touch up all the paint. I noticed some little details that could have been a bit tidier. The blinds in the room were kind of dusty, and the drapes in the common areas looked like they needed pressing. The housekeeping is not bad, but I noticed it's not as good as where my mom lives.

But the actual care, the people that have worked with my in-laws, have been very nice. Everything we've seen of the food looks really good. I've gone there for lunch a couple of times. It was very nice. They also have something going on every day. They have snack times in between meals, games, they've had musicians doing recitals, scrapbooking club, exercise equipment, a small pool, and they also have a bus that will take the people around to various stores or to doctor's appointments. They actually care that way, and I thought that was outstanding from what I've seen so far.

What I like best about the community is how kind the employees are to the residents and the way they encourage them to do different activities. I also really like that each resident has a shadow box by their door for them to decorate. That was really nice, and I really appreciate how they were able to calm my mother-in-law down. I've seen a huge difference in her behavior. She's definitely doing better than she was when she was at home. When we moved her in, she really couldn't dress herself, bathe properly, or put on her makeup. Now, when I go over to visit over, she's clean and fresh, tidy, and her hair is all nice. She looks really well cared for. They've done a good job with my father-in-law too, I think.

Sunrise of Gilbert is a beautiful facility. It's fairly new and very beautifully decorated. The staff was very nice and she took me on a whole facility tour. They have lots of rooms for activities and I saw some residents participating in the activities. I saw their rooms and they were not well laid out, but aside from that everything looked gorgeous.

At Sunrise of Gilbert, the facility was beautiful. In terms of cleanliness and ambience, it was very nice. The people were especially nice. However, if two people move into a unit and one of them needs assistance or goes into assisted living, then that person has to move to another part of the facility.

Mother stayed at Sunrise for about eight months. It goes from independent to assisted living and then it also has the Alzheimer's or dementia area, too. It was just top of the line. The people were very hospitable. The food was good. Good care for my mother, just clean, nice, very accommodating, big enough for her. I like the way it was decorated, the way care was given. The people were very nice and they attended to my mother very well. She needed showering and her medication given to her. They were so accommodating that my mother smoked and there was no smoking inside the facility but they made a smoking area outside and got an ashtray for her.

They are a little pricey. It was the closest one to our house. They're out of the city but it was just perfect. I was happy with it. They did have activities. They would take her to the store and they would take them out for lunch and they would have crafts. They would even have people come in to play music usually once a week. It was really nice.

I have visited this facility at least twice a month for nearly four months. I nearly always visit during lunch or dinner. I have had maybe two meals there which I found to be acceptable. I would say that ninety percent of the time the meals are served cold. There will be only one person handing out meals to more than 20 people. If someone orders pie ala mode, their ice cream is nearly completely melted before the coffee is served. I have NEVER seen them serve what is posted in the elevator nor outside the dining room. A few days before Thanksgiving, they served a tasty turkey dinner. On Thanksgiving day they served a lunch which was the worst turkey dinner I had ever had. The people who work at this place are nice, but they are seriously understaffed at meal time. The outside and inside of this home are beautiful -- the winner of one season's Design Star did the interior decorating. I was in the restroom of a shared bathroom for two studios once. There was no soap, towels or anything in there except toilet paper. I am not too impressed with this place, considering people I've spoken with say that the amounts charged for staying there are very high for what one gets. I would say, at this point, that this place is 65% facade and 35% real. Unfortunately, the lack of service that I have experienced has all been on the memory care floor. Many of the residents lack the ability to make their needs or wishes known. They claim that they keep their residents up and active with games and other activities. I have come in around 4:40 and found my friend fast asleep in her room, not realizing it was time for dinner. The memory care residents seem to have no concept of time, day of the week, or even which month it is. I have seen this last issue addressed better in hospitals. How are the residents supposed to be grounded and focused in reality when they have no sense of time or date? I am a truly disappointed friend. I, too, have seen residents bussing their own tables. This is hardly indicative of an upscale facility.

I have eaten lunch and dinner with a friend who lives there on the 2nd floor. The food is, more often than not, cold by the time it is served to the residents. The meals being served are seldom what was posted in the elevator and the entrance to the dining room. More often than not, there is only one person delivering meals to residents and cleaning up afterward. I have seen residents clearing the tables, and I have heard the residents complained about this facility being understaffed. I have been in the restroom of my friend who shares a restroom with another person in another studio. There was no soap, towels, or toilet paper in there one day.

Mom has been at Sunrise of Gilbert for about 2 months. It is very clean and very elegant. The staff are all very nice and friendly. She said the food is excellent. They really make a really good effort at everything that they cook and they had filet mignon one night. It is always a surprise everyday about what they have on their menu.

I liked the atmosphere of Sunrise of Gilbert. I liked the staff, they were all very good and they answered any questions we have. The sanitation was great. They do have activities there.

I was very impressed with Sunrise of Gilbert. It's located in a newer area of Gilbert and is within easy access to many of the places my relatives father-in-law frequents such as doctors, library, etc. When first arriving at Sunrise of Gilbert, I was quite taken back at how well kept and well manicured the grounds landscaping was. It was beyond what one would expect for nice landscaping. I was just as impressed when entering the main reception and visitors area. It has just the right amount of an up-scale feel with it still being very warm and homey. Many of the residents could be seen getting ready to board the facilities shuttle bus to go shopping, doctors appointment's, etc. Other residents were busy in the recreation area doing all sorts of crafts. The staff was very welcoming, warm and immediately assisted us. We were visiting to go on a tour of the facility. I was very pleased with all aspects of Sunrise of Gilbert from the appearance of the facility on up to the staff and management.

This facility is fairly new to the Gilbert community and it is absolutely beautiful. The flowers, trees, walkways and landscaping in general are stunning. They allow residents to pick and choose from some beautiful designs in order to give their condo-style homes their own beautiful touches. The common areas in the community are very well designed with comfort and beauty in mind. It's just down the road from downtown Gilbert which houses a few amazing restaurants, a farmers market, and the Hale Theatre. The staff is very friendly and caring. They truly take pride in their work and provide the best assistance possible to the residents. The staff treats all of the residents like a part of their own family and not like it's just a part of their job. It's the personal touches that set this place apart from others. My favorite part about this place is that there are always activities going on onsite as well as planned events that they take residents to offsite.

My mom and I have been visiting facilities in the southwest corner for over two months. I live in Mesa, she lives in Prescott, but we figured we could eventually settle on a place in between.

This is where Sunrise came into play.

A drop dead gorgeous facility! Honestly, no pun intended. White-washed exterior, too many plants and flowers to name, active enough to get distracted and move on.

A twenty four hour staff, and every room is telephone ready, a plus that pleased my mom as she has looked into countless facilities and was often told: You need to set up your own services.

She worries about losing contact, even if it is just for one day.

I have to say, personally, without my mothers input, how they specify directly on their website and in their brochures, the exact price! Nobody does this. Right away you are aware of what your costs are! Who does this?

Exceptional staff, friendly, caring, smiling (and we didn't even schedule an appointment).

It felt very active here. Very ""into"" community. My mom is an active senior, a hard working woman who loves to live life. We were both quite happy with our visit here.

It became one of the top on our list.
