Sunrise of Playa Vista is a better community, beautiful, and clean. The staff is excellent. You couldn't expect the staff to be better. They care so much about the people there, and they go the extra mile to make them happy. Even if the people there are not nice to the staff, the staff is still very good to them. It's just amazing. They're very compassionate people. The activities are excellent. They are very professionally done. They ask them all the time what they want to do. The rooms are awesome, but you have to do your own room and bring your own furniture. The people are very nice. They're very safe. They clean the rooms very well. The facility is very well kept. They're always doing maintenance in the rooms. It looks like a new room all the time. This is absolutely the best and the newest facility. It's very close to our house.

I didn't like Sunrise of Playa Vista. The staff seemed nice, but I didn't have much interaction with them. Their rooms were tiny. I liked the location; it was convenient to everything.

My experience and my mother's experience at Sunrise of Playa Vista was fair. They did not have space for her when she first moved in the assisted living, so they put her in the full-fledged dementia care, and she was not very happy being there because the other residents had full-blown dementia and she always had to use the code to get in and out of her floor. But Mom was happy with the location, and she liked the food. I have no negative comments about the facility at all. The service that they offered was great for my mother. She was treated very well. They were very concerned and very caring. Her room was very nice, and my daughter and I set it up very nicely.

I love Sunrise at Playa Vista, but I couldn’t afford it. It's wonderful, and if I had money, I would put my mother there, but I don’t have that kind of money and she doesn’t either. They took us up to the memory care floor, and it's beautifully decorated, and there were activities going on, and it seemed like there was a nice ratio of staff to people. The rooms were quite nice, and they looked spacious. The staff made our visit very inviting, and they were just lovely. They gave us homemade cookies.

The one that we like so far from the ones we visited is Sunrise of Playa Vista. We went there because we drive by it all the time. They have a continuum of service that we are looking for and we think we may require. We only met with one person, the marketing director, so we can't really compare the staff. It seemed very clean and welcoming. The apartments are very nice. They had some activities, but I don't remember what they have.

Sunrise was very homey and it was close to my mother's original neighborhood so her friends and neighbors have been able to go and visit her. She started in the assisted living and then she was moved to reminiscence which is essentially a memory floor. There are two memory floors and four assisted living floors in this place.

The room is a shared room. It has a little living room out in the front and then each person has their own room and they share a bathroom. It has a nice big window and a nice big closet. She has a sitting room and a table for her to eat at if she wants to. I go to lunch with her sometimes in their dining room and we've been to a couple gatherings. Very nutritious, well balanced meals. They have menu choices to pick what they would rather eat. They will bring her food to the room if she doesn't feel like going out into the dining area but they do encourage her to go out into the room. I would say certainly not gourmet food, it is quite acceptable. On the menu, they will distinguish what is low salt or sugar-free in case there are people who really do need to watch.

Her floor works differently than the assisted living floor but they both have activities. Two weeks ago, her floor went to the aquarium in Long Beach and she went. They sometimes go to have yogurt at Pinkberry or they'll go to a movie and lunch. They also have activities inside. They have a little art class. The other day, the other assisted living people were having a chili cook-off demonstration. Last Saturday, they baked cookies up on my mom's floor and used one of her recipes. They have a television in the main living room up where she is. They gathered and watched the ice skating during the Olympics.

They try to engage the people in what they're interested in. There's a chair exercise class that they have everyday and my mom enjoys that and many people go to that. Some of the people also have pets because I've noticed a man who has a cute little dog who comes down with him on the elevator. I think it is nicely kept and it is clean. They're very concerned about that. There was a little outbreak of some sort of intestinal thing back in December. They had clearly posted on the front desk saying that this was happening and they had extra hand sanitizers everywhere. Many times I have seen a man who does carpet cleaning so it seems like if someone may have an accident in their room or spilled something in the dining room, they're on it quickly which is important and good. I'm happy with that aspect.

Sunrise met all the needs that we were looking for. They were very open, nice and clean. They had all kinds of activities like movie nights, exercises and games. They had a van, which they used to take seniors to place. They had different kinds of caring issue that would make someone very comfortable living there. I smelled the food and it sure smelled good. The staff was top notched.

I've visited Sunrise Senior Living and that would be a choice for my mother should her finances pick up. The people were congenial, informative, and cheerful even though they know they're going to be in there for however long. The place was fabulous except for they had one room on special that was just straight walls and open space shared with another client. Unfortunately, it seemed very dark and I wouldn't put my mom in that position. I had lunch and the food was very nice. I like best that the facility is very close to my home and I could go over there during the week or pick her up on the weekend. They had bicycles on certain areas, which is perfect for my mom because she likes to exercise. They also had movie night, church services, arts and crafts, walking around the garden, and outings.

I think Sunrise of Playa Vista is an excellent facility. I was very impressed by it. I think they went out of their way to make it more like a home. There was a lot of socialization and activities from support groups, but there was also some privacy.
