My mother went to Sunrise of Wayland. We chose this facility because it seemed to be the best fit. It was kind of homey, it wasn’t huge, and the staff was really nice. The facility was bright and cheerful. I really don’t know how much she is getting into the activities, but she does go down at 3 o'clock for social hours. Nobody was just sitting around, people were busy.

I visited this facility

I went and toured Sunrise. It was a very nice facility. I saw some of the rooms. Although most of them were fairly small, I appreciated them because they all looked good. I had lunch there and I liked the food. It was very, very good. The people were very attentive and they seemed to be dedicated. It might a little pricey for me.

Sunrise of Wayland just didn't have enough for the long haul in terms of care. You have to bring more health services for yourself. It was less appealing in that they didn't have enough health services. It did have a dementia area. It may be good for some people, they may like what they have, so there's nothing negative about it. It was also less expensive because they didn't have buy-in.

Sunrise was very nice and lovely. The woman that showed us around was very nice and they had everything that a little old person would love but it's outrageously expensive. They had nice sitting rooms and snacks, tea or coco 24/7 and three square meals. They had a little barbershop and hair dressing place. They had a bunch of stimulating groups for people who have dementia like my dad. They had a lot to offer.

Sunrise Senior Living in Wayland is a very nice facility and the residents are well cared for there. The building and grounds are always very clean and well kept. Residents often sit outside on the walkway or in the screened porch when the weather is nice. The common areas always have people in them either watching television or listening to music. There have been occasions when I visited and there were very talented live musicians playing the piano. There are two small dogs which live at Sunrise. They are mostly well behaved and get along well with the residents and visiting children. The staff are very kind, patient and professional. The food is well made and there is a private dining room which can be requested by the residents. The facility it two floors, but easy to navigate and wheelchair accessible. My grandmother is happy living at Sunrise senior living.

Sunrise Assisted Living is a good place for my great-grandmother to live. She made the difficult decision to stop living in her own home after a stroke, and Sunrise is the most home-like environment available that also suited her level of need for care. She receives medical care, occupational therapy, and physical therapy in the same facility, as well as enrichment activities. The facility is clean and bright, and it is easy for residents and family to maneuver in wheelchairs or with limited mobility. The two staff doggies provide an additional home-like touch. The staff are kind, respectful, and caring; each staff member seems dedicated to meeting the needs of each individual resident. The kitchen provides healthy and good-tasting food, and there's a beautiful open dining room with plenty of windows. Even the grounds are beautiful, with flowers, grass, and well-maintained paved paths, so even residents in wheelchairs can go outdoors with assistance.

I visited this facility

The facility seemed great. My class was warmly welcomed, but the part of the facility that I noticed the most was the cleanliness. From the general furniture to the bathrooms, every part seemed to be thoroughly inspected and cleaned. Therefore, I was very pleased in this regard. Likewise, the staff were very accommodating , both for my class and the elderly. We were happily greeted at the door, and this friendliness lasted throughout the entire time which spanned about two hours. In fact, my teacher noted that of all the assisted facilities that she had seen, Sunrise Assisted Living in Wayland was by far the best. Overall, the occupants seemed pleased with their lifestyle. There were no negative aspects of the facilities, so overall I was very impressed. One woman personally thanked me and noted that our class didn't need to work so hard to memorized multiple songs. I responded however that it was my pleasure.
