My wife and I visited Sun Valley, and the reception was very nice. They gave us a tour of the whole facility, and I think I saw the residents watching TV in the nursing area. The rooms were utilitarian, weren’t fancy at all, and were made from painted cement blocks for the most part. However, it was clean, and my brother liked it because it was cheaper.

Sun Valley Lodge was excellent in all regards; it had really good food, was very clean, and didn't have a smell. Everybody was very nice. The rooms were very nice and very clean. They have tai chi, a nice little chapel with Sunday services, and a beauty salon in the building. The food was restaurant-style, so they can order a number of different food items at every meal. At night, they lay out breakfast items, so the residents can take the breakfast items into their room if they don’t want to come for breakfast. We liked it.

This is a medium sized assisted living. The buildings are very nice and the grounds beautiful. They have lots of trees, two garden areas, greenery, and a beautiful flower garden. There are benches, walking trails, a nice gazebo, and a patio.
There are 24 indepent units which are 1 bedrooms and full kitchen, 73 assisted with 1 bedroom and partial kitchens, and 58 skilled units. They have what they call the inn and it is studio and 1 bedroom.
They do housekeeping and linen service. With laundry for assisted and skilled.
They offer 1 meal a day for independent in own dining room and 3 meals for assisted and skilled with snacks. The food is good.
They have a house doctor and nurses on staff 24/7. All caregivers are certified. They do transport to doctor appointments. They utilize community services for therapists, home health, and hospice. They also have respite care. The staff I spoke with was very nice and seemed caring.
They do a lot in house activities such as bingo, exercises, games, outside entertainment, partied, movies, and celebrations. They go to shopping,restaurants,and other outings,
This is a vry nice facility.

After volunteering my time at this facility for one week in the nursing home, I left feeling slightly unsettled. Having never entered a care facility for seniors, I didn't have much to compare their ways of assisting residents. What I do know is most of the nursing assistants do care very much for their residents they are assisting. They are kind, loving and try to make them comfortable. What I didn't like about them was that they rush through their days and don't seem to get to spend any quality time with the residents. I also noticed that there is a lack of infection control in this facility. I witnessed gloves not being used at certain points, and dirty linens sitting on bedside tables. The head nurses on duty took an extremely long time to assist residents who were in pain. Personally, I would not recommend this facility to anybody that I love. There is not enough personal attention to each resident, and it is not a facility that abides by state regulations, in terms of infection control.
