We liked Sunrise at Canyon Crest. It was expensive, but the thing that I liked about it was the longevity of the staff -- how long they worked there really impressed me -- and the level of care that they provide. They told me that no matter what condition my mother was in, they would see her through until the end. I also liked the feel of the facility. It was homey. They had it set up in small units so it was more of a smaller community. This is where I'd like for her to go. The rooms were not as spacious. That was the only downfall, but everything else was not comparable to anywhere else. If a person can afford it, I would recommend it.

Sunrise at Canyon Crest is so nice. If I had the money, I would put my mother here. This would have been my first although they did not take Medicare. The facility is beautiful. It seems like you are going on a vacation. Everything is clean. The rooms are beautiful. The inside is gorgeous. You are like stepping into a five star hotel. That is how nice it is. The lady that assisted me was very sweet. She was the one that gave me a lot of different numbers and different places to check out.

I went to Sunrise at Canyon Crest. I wasn't too impressed with it. It was OK, but the food didn't look that appetizing. It wasn't the right spot for my dad. The rooms were OK, but I wasn't that impressed with this facility, so I just stopped the tour. It wasn't a good fit. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable though.

Sunrise at Canyon Crest had a wonderful staff, and they were very caring. If there were any issues, they'd call and let us know. My friend's mother was in the Alzheimer's unit which had just bedrooms. It had a common eating place, which was very nice. It was set up restaurant style so that people could visit with other people. They had chair exercises, chair dancing, and tea parties. I certainly would recommend this facility, but it is probably not affordable for everybody. I liked best the care.

Sunrise at Canyon Crest is absolutely perfect; it’s so relaxed there and they have coziness the minute you walked in. They have rooms, and a little cove off of the center of the main building so all around there are little clusters of bedrooms and a short hallway that would have three or four bedrooms so that you are close to the center all the time. In that big center is a living room, several little places to eat, plus a larger dining room with tables that seats maybe 10 people, windowed little side room, and windows to the inside too so it’s wide open that way. If you want to meet with a group or have a birthday party or something, you could be off to the side. It was just wonderful and also had memory care. What I like most in this community is their togetherness. While we were there walking through the central area, there were people wandering curious, and it’s just a very cozy feeling. The sofas looked warm and inviting with pillows and this is where we want to go.

I chose Sunrise because I liked the people. But they had a lady manager who was managing me. She was not so nice, but the others seemed very nice. You’re not gonna like this, but I was there for two weeks and they won’t give me back my walker. So I wasn’t really pleased. I was also under problems because they would not let me have my grab bar, which means I can’t get up in bed. But I got my refund back, that was nice. The buildings were attractive. I was not engaged in any activities particularly, but they had one that was kind of nice. Somebody was coming in on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They had some people come in and play music for us.

We visited Sunrise, and it was a beautiful place. They were very accommodating. However, they don't have a two-bedroom apartment.

Our favorite facility that we visited was Sunrise at Canyon Crest. This is a smaller facility, just one story, and everything was based in a circle. They made a requirement that the residents should tend at least one or two a week of the activities, which we liked because my mother-in-law tends to be more withdrawn, and she probably would lock herself in her room. So we kind of like that because that would help her get out. The people there were very friendly. I ended up having a talk to a lady who lives there, and she was ranting about how amazing the food was.

Sunrise was very good. The facility had a homey feel. They had four or five self-contained facilities with smaller number of occupants and were in a higher level of care. I liked and was most impressed with the staff. They had larger rooms. They had activities like exercise class. I would recommend them to others.

Sunrise is a lovely home with a clean and bright interior, well kept landscaping and some spectacular views.The staff is patient and caring. My person has been living at Sunrise for eight months. She is very busy doing purposeful things. She is content and her health has improved. I recommend Sunrise!

This residence is very clean and homey. The food is tasty and nutritious. There are lots of activities to keep residents active, alert, and genuinely productive. For example, the kitchen serves produce which the residents grow. The staff is accommodating. When visiting cottage 3, which is designated for residents with severe cognitive impairment who might wander, I noticed that the residents were all clean, dressed, and up and about. They seemed quite content.

My experience with this assisted living provider was always pleasant. The accommodation was ideal, with each person receiving their own room and only about 10-15 people per 'cottage'. There would be group activities such as crafts or exercising in the main house to encourage inter-cottage relationships. The staff was always pleasant and helpful and there was a small medical team, dentist, and beautician on site. There was also a free shuttle service for those who were able and wanting to go shopping. All food was made on-site in view of the residents of each cottage. Each meal was healthy and balanced with several options per meal. On site were also several 'lock-down' cottages to house those with dementia. Despite not being let outside unsupervised, these cottages worked just like the rest with no difference in care or aptitude of the staff. Staff was always around to help and answer questions for both family members and residents.

The facility was clean and has good welcoming vibe. The elderly looks comfortable living there. The location was good it was near a sloped road, but it seems secured. They have programs that seems to stimulate older people. This is I think very important for an assisted living home. Since, most of them are bored and needs things to do. They have allotted time to socialize and the staff are very friendly. It seems like the people that are working there are knowledgeable of what to do incase of emergency. I think this is a good place for an elderly to be in. Although, it is near riverside. The place seemed very safe. They are also, near commercial areas. So, that's a good thing.

I visited this facility

When attending Sunrise Assisted Living, I provided donated blankets to the seniors living there. In my short visit there (only a few hours), I noticed that the staff at assisted living was very kind and helpful, not only to the individuals living there, but to those who visited. Many of the people who lived there were happy and free to go about the rooms without being overly restricted by staff. However, there were no issues and all the residents seemed to enjoy being with the staff, visitors, and each other. It was a great visit and was exemplary in many respects.
