I am a friend or relative of a resident
My Grandmother is a resident at Sunrise and has been since early last year. Though she misses being able to live at home she is content with her living arrangement at Sunrise. They paired her with a room mate that she enjoys sharing her days with. They take good care of her and meet her medical needs. She has a nurse that has been assigned to her and over seeing her medical condition. She enjoys all the themed holiday meals they provide her as she is no longer able to travel outside the facility to join us for family holiday meals. One of her favorite things they provide are the "movie nights" for all the residents. She loves to watch tv and enjoys the community room where they all gather to watch movies together. The cost associated with care at this facility versus having an in home care nurse is comparable. Though she does complain that the cost to her is double that of her former living expenses , which it is at $7000.00 per month. She is receiving far better care than she would have at home. They see to it that she is transported to and from her doctors appointments 45 minutes away in Anchorage which is also a benefit to her in many ways. Previously she had to rely on her caregiver to show up (not always a given) and get her there on time and back home again. Now, she makes it to her scheduled appointments without issue. When we met with the administrator (Paula is her first name) to determine if this was the best facility for Grandma, she was very helpful and took the time to answer all of our questions to help us determine if this was the best "fit" for her and her health, and medical needs. The entire facility is very well maintained, clean, and has a positive atmosphere. Which is consistent with our first impression when we first toured the facility. It has been a little over a year now and the facility has maintained a consistent standard of care for her. I think it was a good choice. Her nurses and care providers are all very cheerful and know us all by name when we come in to visit her now. I have never seen anything that I could report as a "negative." She has had minor issues that were all resolved to her satisfaction, but they were not issues directly related to the staff, at Sunrise. These were all creature comfort requests for things she wanted in her room when she was first settling in and was unhappy until she received them. Which is understandable, she missed her independence and her home. I honestly don't have anything negative to say about Sunrise as an assisted living facility. I have in fact, recommended it to several close friends with aging parents.
