I visited this facility

I visited Sunrise at Fountain Square. It was busy and nice. It was average, but it was a little too crazy at that time. The services were a la carte, but it seemed OK.

My visit with Sunrise was very positive. They have helpful staff. The rooms were perfectly fine and relatively spacious. They have lots of activities.

My husband lives at Sunrise, and we've been very happy with it. They seem to be very nice people there. He gets his meals, his exercise, and activities, and he is not very far from where I live, so I visit him very often. I can go there anytime. The staff seems kind and considerate, and they treat him well. It could be kept cleaner. It is not bad, but sometimes it is kind of messy, and it is not usually the way it is, so usually it is pretty good. It is homey, much homier than a hospital. He has a nice room there, and he is comfortable there; his room is OK. They could use more staff to take care of the people who live there. They kind of have to wait to be taken care of. I would say they are a little understaffed.

We visited Sunrise at Fountain Square, but the facility didn't work for us. The area was too congested. The rooms were fine though. We didn't eat there but we saw that the dining room was clean and nice. I liked that the people who assisted us during our visit were accommodating.

Sunrise at Fountain Square was our second choice. They were fine and I am sure my aunt-in-law would have been happy there. But price-wise, it was more. Her apartment wasn't as big as what she has now. They had activity rooms and a calendar of events in which residents could partake. It was basically the same thing.

It was OK. It was just a little bit out of the area where it would have satisfied my sister.

Sunrise at Fountain Square has an intimate setting. It’s very new, and we were only there for 3 months. We like the layout and we are able to bring her things so that she can feel comfortable there. The staff are very attentive. They pay attention to her special needs, because she is diabetic. They also seem to show an extraordinary level of care, doing not only what they have to do, but going beyond. She has a wonderful apartment with a good view. My mother seemed to enjoy the food, it has a lot of variety. She goes to exercise class, they have a fashion show, a sing-a-long and a library. She is home.

My sister's friend is at the independent living community at Sunrise of Fountain. The facility is excellent as well as the rooms. Everything is great. There is not a bad thing about the place. They have nice activities like movie nights, physical therapy; they have everything.

The fees for this facility are outrageous for the services. Care managers turn over constantly because they are overworked. Fees are continually increased, and care is terrible. I do not recommend this place, the facility is beautiful but the residents get horrible care (and meals are horrible unless it is an event where they are hosting outsiders).

This facility is extremely short staffed. Residents falling constantly. Groups of residents sitting unattended plopped in front of the t.v. while the very few care givers run around trying to get residents ready for bed. Resident call lights take sometimes 15-20 minutes to be answered. Nurses giving medications hours behind schedule. I would not recommend this facility for my loved one.

Sunrise at Fountain Square is very nice, clean, and updated. However, I just don't think that the staff has the ability or has enough training.

The overall appearance of this facility was beautiful, but when it came down to customer service and quality of care, it was lacking. There were repeated issues with night-time staff forgetting to give my grandmother her medications, despite frequent complaints and reminders of various forms. The staff were clearly overworked and underpaid, with only one to two workers on an entire floor. On the upper floors, the staff had to bring meals up themselves, from the kitchen on the first floor and prepare everything for all residents on the floor. When my grandmother died, Sunrise was not willing to allow us even one extra day to get her stuff out (it was the end of the month) without charging us for another full month, which was ridiculous there was no rush for her room there were many vacancies. There were several great caregivers on staff, however, and my family is grateful for them. I was pleased with the number of activities offered and the encouragement of staff to get residents to participate.

The staff was very attentive, compassionate, and competent. The amenities were beautiful, very nice. The facility was very homey feeling. They made it look homey through house-like architecture. The residents were allowed to bring their own furniture to their rooms. Other furniture was very non-institutional. The food was better than expected in a facility of this nature. My aunt enjoyed all the desserts. If a visitor paid $5 she/he could eat with her relative in the dinning room. The grounds were well kept. The facility was clean. The janitors were friendly. There was a beauty parlor on the premises. My aunt had her hair and nails done weekly. They had organized games, bingo, memory games, and Scrabble tournament. Choral groups would come and perform occasionally. The residents could go on shopping trips or to the movies as a group. The facility had two house dogs.The facility was set up for multiple levels of care, from assissted living to almost total dependancy. It was not my aunt's home; as much as they try to down-play the institutional nature, it was still an institution.

Pros:Comfortable facility, lots of activities, caregivers generally helpful but overworked. Help the family place them in another facility when their money runs out. Cons: Way too expensive! Do not take medicare. Tend to try to keep you there with promises of working with you to keep costs low but then before you know it, they tell you your loved one needs a higher level of care and the costs really go up then. They drag it out until all their money is gone. Have a "neurologic protocol" to put seniors on antidepressants. My mom was always the most positive person. Their facility doctor recommended it saying it helps when they are having trouble 'adjusting". But not enough oversight for side effects!! My mom started dragging her legs more and more and eventually fell and broke a bone. They blame it on her demensia. Unless you have the money, look for somewhere else that will eventually take medicare so you don't have to move them again and they don't have to go through the adjustment.
