I visited this facility

I had a very positive impression of Sunrise at North Hills. I brought my mother there, and we were both very impressed with the place. It seemed pretty nice. They were doing some arts and crafts with the residents, and I saw them doing physical therapy. I thought it was all good. The food was very good. It seemed very well kept.

Sunrise’s staff is very helpful and professional, and they are there when we need them. The apartments are very nice; you can put your own shelves up there however you want it. My parents enjoyed a lot of their meals, and if you don’t like the ones they serve, then you can choose anything you want. It is a little apartment community.

They have a whole bunch of activities for seniors all day long; every two hours they have different activities. What I like the most is how helpful they are to the people staying there and to their families. Security is good.

I visited this facility

Sunrise at North Hills was larger, it had a lot of activities, and everybody seemed very involved. There was a separate wing for the assisted living versus the people with memory care issues. The rooms were not as nice; they were choppy. If you wanted a two-bedroom, it was actually more like a one-bedroom cut in half. They had a lot of activities and a lot of stuff that they encourage the family to come to. They had a really nice exterior area for the memory care and for the assisted living. There were two separate areas for them to walk around. Their menu looked fine; it was adequate. The staff seemed very friendly, and the memory care was OK. I liked it.

The staff was very nice. The building was clean and pleasantly decorated. The only complaints I could find have to do with the meals and lack of activities/opportunities to go out.

I did have a meal with the resident and if that was an indication of all the meals, there is a problem. I'm far from a picky eater, but the food was bland, luke warm and unappealing. Also, we were made to come to the front part of the dining room near the kitchen and bus bins, when the middle dining room was much nicer. I didn't understand that. I think meals should be a great experience for the residents. For some, it's their only real time for socializing and it's three times a day. I would like to add, the servers were very friendly when I was there and the resident like the staff very much.

As for the outings, the resident said there were only two a week, and one was shopping. Having a resident feel they can go out more, and not feel confined, is so important for their emotional and physical well-being. Most residents have lost their driver's licenses and much of their independence. Sadly some don't have family visiting, so any chance to go out is a treat and a highlight.

Those were the only complaints I heard about, and thankfully, they can be easily remedied by management. All in all, I would recommend Sunrise, North Hills if I had a family member needing assisted living. (I wouldn't mind living there myself if the meals were better!)

We really liked everything about Sunrise at North Hill: the different rooms that were available, the different types of setups, and the activities that they had. It was a much larger community than what we were looking for. The staff was great. We liked the dining room, but didn't try the food. It was very secure.

This facility is great! I visit it regularly. They offer exceptional dining for the residents as well as having actual chefs that prepare the meals. Upon arriving there, I am greeted by a staff member with a bright smile and hardy "Good Morning." The facility is neat and clean through out and attention is given to maintaining a clean and neat facility. The halls are filled with the sights and sounds of happy residents and joyful staff. I once saw on my visit here a staff member walk up to a resident who was visibly upset. The staff member hugged him and consoled him on what ever was bothering him. One major plus that seems to add to the joy the residents seem to always have is that they allow the residents to have pets! When a resident is a little under the weather, I have seen staff go beyond the scope of their employment and care for the residents pet. It is a joy to see so many happy residents.
