I visited this facility

Sunrise of Wayne was cheery and open. There were a lot of skylights. I didn't really like the room, but I liked the place. It was very clean. I didn’t meet any of the staff. I just met a lady, and I don't know what her title was, but she's fine.

Sunrise of Wayne was clean, immaculate, and very stunning. The people were extremely friendly and informative. We asked a lot of questions, and they answered. I was interested in the studio apartment, and we got the pricing to see if I could afford it. I went inside one of the studios, and it was furnished. It was like a room and a half with a bed on one side. There were chairs, television, computer, refrigerator. I thought it was previously owned by a lady. They had a list of activities all day, happy hour on some days. They served three meals a day, and they were not so strict with the time. Even if breakfast was served at 8 a.m and the residents came down later than that, they still served them. They seemed cooperative, and I understand that once you signed up, they have a team assigned to your area. The team made the bed every morning for you, took the trash out, etc. They catered to the people, depending on your personality and not how they wanted things done. I would probably go there if I'm ready to.

The staff was wonderful at Sunrise of Wayne. The parking lot and the sidewalk were not cleaned up at all. I had a hard time getting in the building because of the snow and the ice. When I went inside, there seemed to be a major leak. There were big buckets everywhere in the area. It seemed to be not the right day for the visit, but everybody seemed to be very nice. The place was great and beautiful inside. Their rooms seemed nice. I was not able to eat there, but their dining area seemed very nice and clean. They had a nice variety of things to do. A lot of them had to do with cooking, as far as I can remember.

I didn’t like Sunrise at Wayne as much as the other place I visited. I just didn't like the rooms; they were not handicapped-accessible rooms. But the staff was really friendly, and everything else was good. I didn’t see as many residents. I saw some in a room in a class or something. They have a library, a recreation room, and a common center.

Sunrise is like a Victorian home mansion with a lot of apartments inside and it's only got two floors. My grandma has a beautiful apartment. It's cool, it's a nice place. They have all kinds of good services for them. They take the garbage out and they clean. When they eat, it's like a restaurant style. I know she plays bingo. She gets her hair done at the beauty salon like once or twice a week. She plays keno and they take them places like Christmas tree shops, to shopping centers in Wayne. I know she gets her medicines and everything taken there. I really think they do such a good job. They even have a family fun day once or twice a month and I went to the one for Halloween. We got dressed up when we went there and then they had something else for New Year's and they had belly dancers. That was super cool. I didn't think I was going to like it but it was different.

I knew of Sunrise Assisted Living because a client of mine has his mom at their other site. This one's in Wayne, NJ. It's a lovely facility, brand new and I was looking for the least expensive room. The staff are really, really nice and they still call me from time to time to let me know when they have an inexpensive room available. The place is absolutely beautiful; they have activities like arts and crafts. They set it up the place it's like a hotel. It's really, really nice.

I had volunteered at the Sunrise Assisted Living in Wayne, New Jersey. The residents had incredible personalities and were happy with their living situation. The staff proved excellence in their respective fields on the daily. The food service was also very well done. Overall it seemed to be a very caring and considerate place to be. People became friends and there were always friendly visitors for everyone. There were a couple of other people that volunteered but it is really the staff and people that are on call all the time that stand out in my mind. Even when someone didn't have to be there they would be there at any moment. That was very commendable. People looking out for their friends, helping each other out. They even provide care for Alzheimer's patients. I remember Jerry, he used to be a cab driver. He would slip back in time and tell stories as if we were driving in his old cab in New York City. I would listen and ask questions about what he was talking about. Sometimes he would just tell stories about the past but most times he was reliving those golden moments. It made me happy to be able to share those times in such a way. There were other old timers that were as sharp and more wise and intelligent than they have ever been. The residents would play games with each other and still have outlets for their creative energy. I remember one woman who had after many years quit caffeine. She told me that she gained so much energy from doing so and she showed it. There was so much life there and in retrospect seems to be the best Assisted Living Facility that I have seen,

My wife, an Alzheimer"s patient, received the most tender, loving care that I have ever seen.
