Sun Towers Retirement was nice and pretty decent. The staff was very polite and good. The apartments were medium-sized with enough room for one person. They had a lot of activities and transportation available for the residents. Food was served three times a day.

My experience at Sun Towers Retirement was good, and the tour was nice. They showed me the facilities that I would be occupying. The one I was interested in was a two-bedroom unit with a full kitchen, living room, and little balcony. They provided different things like tours and field trips, and they'd take you to the doctor, shopping, or any place you needed to go. They had dining areas on every other floor. There was nothing I could see that was wrong. They have one-bedroom apartments and furnished apartments. They also have kitchenette apartments if you don't want a full kitchen.

My in-laws are moving into Sun Towers at the end of the month. The staff who toured us was absolutely wonderful, they’re very professional, and caring. My in-laws are comfortable enough to agree with them to move in. They were offered a one bedroom, 2 baths apartment which was perfect, of good size, and tastefully decorated with window treatments and neutral carpeting. The only thing I had a problem with is the kitchen was rather small and with no counter space, however, all the meals will be served. There’s a sink, stove top, and refrigerator. It was the lowest price of all the places. Their main dining area reminded me of a cruise dining room. There was a piano for entertainment. Breakfast and lunch is a buffet, and you actually have to dress for dinner.

I liked Sun Towers, but it wasn’t what my aunt wanted. Nevertheless, I thought it was terrific. The facility was clean enough and nice. The residents were very friendly, very nice people. They had their own pets there. The dining area was fine, nice and large and looked like a cafeteria.

The Towers (Sun Towers Retirement Community) was OK. They seemed to give you the best for your dollars, but then again, you might have to live on the eighth floor or something like that. I think they were fairer than the other facility. They have activities. They have a nursing home connected with them, which was made it more enticing.

We're happy to offer the same price for our apartments regardless of the location within our community. With screened in lanais on each unit and wonderful views, all locations are great choices. Having our skilled facility "Sun Terrace" is indeed an added plus in providing a community where our residents have the ability to "age in place".

I moved into Sun Towers 2 years ago. I lived in Dover, DE for 53 years. Although I miss Dover, Sun Towers makes me feel at home. The staff is always courteous and helpful. I have made many new friends.

My in-laws are now settled in Sun Towers. They have more options, and they have lots of different floor plans. We are impressed by the staff and by the facilities. My in-laws say the food is very good. They have a one-bedroom, but they are on the waiting list for a two-bedroom unit. They had a full range of activities. It is by far the best of the facilities that we have toured.
Provider Response

I am so pleased to hear that they have already settled in! We are happy to have them and look forward to getting them settled once more into the two bedroom home of their dreams.

Sun Towers is a little older, but big, and lots of activities. It's almost an activity point for anyone in town. I go there every week -- once a month for Parkinson's support group -- and yesterday for an Alzheimer's group. They offer things to the community even though it's an assisted living. I know some people who live there, and they think the staff is very friendly, but the food could be better. The people are helpful. It has assisted and independent units, and it does have one floor for memory care. They have a pretty large outside area with a pool, a pond, and a duck. It has 250 clients, so I didn't think that was the place for my husband. The size of it would not be good for somebody who needs the care. A lot of them had kitchenettes, and I didn't want my husband anywhere near a stove or a microwave. They offer different floor plans, and their pricing is less than other places.

I am now in my second year at Sun Towers. I am frequently ask if I am happy with my move to the Towers. My answer is always yes, I made a good choice! The staff and residents are caring and friendly and it is nice knowing I am never alone and can get help if ever I need it. There are many activities and sometimes special programs to enjoy. I can be as busy as I wish, or just be by myself and relax in my apartment. Is life at the Towers perfect? No life just is not perfect where ever you are, but as a famous quote says, "Perfect is not normal, nor is it interesting."We have many positives here for all the above reasons. I am happy to call Sun Towers my home!

My husbands Grandfather is a resident of Sun Towers. We moved both him and his parents here from Arizona so we could be closer to them as they are getting older. We had him in an assisted living facility in Arizona that was very upscale and expensive. We only wanted the best care for him in the world and new he was a bit fussy and difficult. He was NOT eager to move out of it at all and very reluctant to move to Florida for that matter. He was a bit tricky to work with so it was very important that we had a facility that could handle his mood swings and temperament. Even though his apartment in Arizona was very nice, he seemed to not be happy much of the time which made us determined to find a suitable place that would be able to work with him. After looking at a number of available apartments, we decided on Sun Towers. The price was very reasonable for the level of service and care and the staff seemed to be very eager to help. Well, all I can say is we made the best decision ever! He couldn't be happier with his arrangement at Sun Towers. He absolutely loves it and his attitude about Florida and his housing have been nothing short of a miracle. He RAVES about how the staff spoils him all the time. I visit him every Friday and he is always telling me how well they care for him and how they come up to his room just to chat. I almost can't believe that these words are coming out of his mouth. He is so happy here. I can't thank the staff enough for how kind and supportive they are and how pleased we are with the attention he gets and how welcome and friendly they are toward him. From the food to his apartment, everything is professional in an "at-home" sort of way. Whenever I go in there, I feel this way too. Thanks Sun Towers for making a difference in all of our lives!

In September 2014, while going to breakfast, I had a heart attack. I took a nitroglycerin tablet. Returning to my apartment, I had another heart attack and I took another pill. Reaching my apartment I phoned my V.A. Case Load Home Base Manager, Mrs. Russell and informed her of the attack. Feeling better, I went to lunch with my son. Arriving back at my apartment, I had another heart attack, I took another pill and laid down. I don't remember answering the phone. Mrs. Russell, unable to make any sense in our conversation hung up and called the nursing station here at Sun Towers. Katrina answered the phone and came to see me. She put me in a wheelchair and took me to the lobby and put me in an ambulance and sent me to the hospital. She saved my life. In the hospital for the next five to six weeks, I had a heart overhaul. Cleaning it up, cleaning the stents that were there and adding more as necessary. The electro-physiologist doctor replaced my pacemaker with a new type of defibrillator which can reprogram my heart. The staff here at the Sun Towers are really great, from the everyday worker to the top CEO, Mr. Nelson. If it were not for all of these wonderful people I would not be here now.

I recently returned from a month's vacation to Connecticut for the Christmas holidays. I was amazed at the welcome I received from my dinner friend and others who noticed I was missing for some time. I especially was thrilled that Michael, in the dining room was so happy to see me back and was worried about me. A fine gentleman.

We chose Sun Towers as first of all they had availability, and that was the biggest thing. It goes from independent to assisted living care. The rooms were nice and big. They had social activities for the residents which was important for my husband. Everything is nice and clean. Maintenance is kept up to date. There is a happy hour, and my husband plays cards, so there is card playing, and they go out for meals once a week.

Sun Towers is very nice. It's just that it's a rental. If we move in there it would be about the same price a month with our current place. However, when we ran out of money they would take us out and we can't afford that. The place itself is attractive. They give you 3 meals a day if you need them. The people there are friendly. They have therapy, a fitness room, library and other amenities. I only saw their smallest room which was quite adorable and most of them have a little porch.

I am ecstatic that my father has found a permanent home at Sun Towers! He requires a high level of hands on care around the clock, and they are able to provide that for him. He moved in from Sun Terrace where he received excellent rehabilitative services. When he went into Sun Terrace he was wheelchair bound and could not support his weight. When his rehab was completed he was able to walk small distances with only assistance to stand. We were very limited in our choices of facilities that could provide the level of care that my father needs because he is insulin dependent. Sun Towers is able to check his sugar and give him his shots at any time because they have licensed nurses on staff 24 hours a day! The nursing staff is very kind and gentle with him. He loves it there, and tells everyone that he feels like he lives in a fancy hotel.

The care they provided my mother in her 2 years there until her death in Junes was exceptional. All my questions and concerns were dealt with promptly. Tosha and TJ in the Towers and Christine and the physical therapists at the Terrace were so helpful. It eased my mind greatly as I was 12 hours away but knew my mother was in excellent hands and dealt with her eccentric ways. cheerfully.

The rooms were really nice and very spacious in Sun Tower. They were friendly; they answered all the questions and they followed up and called back. They had a beautiful dining area. There seemed to be a lot of activities going on. But they just have a long waiting list.

We like everything about the Sun Towers. It's clean and the staff is really good. There's a lot going on every time you walk in. It's just kind of upbeat with all kinds of activities every day. The food is good and they have a nice, big dining room.

I am the family member of a resident of Sun Towers. I cannot put into words how happy I am that I placed my mom in their facility. Not only does their staff go above and beyond the normal call of duty, but as my mom bounced back and forth between independent and assisted living (WITHOUT HAVING TO SWITCH APTS!!!) they were on top of things and she got the immediate care and therapy she need post haste! The support groups have also been a blessing. In dealing with the loss of my dad, I was able to attend their grief support group with her and was thrilled to learn of all the other resources that Sun Towers offers! I will always recommend Sun Towers as I know they will take the absolute best care of my mom until her final days. I take security in knowing that.

I felt like this company was ran the wrong way at times. The staff were sometimes rude and not caring to the residents. I have noticed some of the staff seem to not fully do their job as their job title stated. Althought the physical therapists were great, they always care for the residents they were assisting and they always wore a smile on their face. I feel like if I were to look for a location for a family member of mine I would choose somewhere else to take them. I know that somethings have changed here a little like the new lockdown unit but I still think they have a ways to go.
