Stinks most of the time of urine. Not much going on activity wise. Friendly and helpful. The smell is unbearable.. that is the biggest complaint. Go and be an active part of your loved ones care no matter where you put them.

I signed my daddy into this facility on September 2, 2014; I figured out Sunday before thanksgiving how much of a terrible mistake that was! I had hospice plus (great company) going in every day during the week as a 'second' set of eyes and I just felt he needed more baths than twice a week his head always smelled soured when he only had 2 baths a week plus with having no bowel/bladder control I just felt he needed more cleaning as I know when I took care of him at home I kept his bottom super clean when I changed his diaper I always used warm water and a wash rag to clean all the urine and feces off plus I would put a heavy coating of cream on his bottom I also taught my siblings to take care of his changing the same way! He kept me clean when I was a baby he deserved the same from us! Well at sunflower if you didn't demand the diapers to be kept closed they lay in the bed with only a sheet over their privates as the diaper was never closed! My daddy was put on oxygen and morphine the day before he passed but none of his children were called to be informed of this fact! It took me calling the day after all that happened and asking what was going on with him and her informing me that if I had a way out there I needed to come see him, she was crying as she was telling this to me!!! I then called my 2 brothers and told them to get up there ASAP as daddy was dying! I told my husband we had to go to kaufman because daddy wasn't going to be there tomorrow! We all got up there luckily having time to tell him we loved him! My husband was beyond pissed and went to the desk demanding an answer as to why we weren't called to spend his last 2 days with him since the hospice nurse on duty had told us the morning nurse had left word at the front desk to call the family in. Not one of the 4 of us received that call, if my sister hadn't been there that day we wouldn't have known about what was going on! I wasn't able to get there until his last 20 minutes of his life just enough time for my husband son and myself tell him we loved him and goodbye! That was just unbelievable that we were treated like that! Or that he was treated like that! I should add, they took him as a Medicaid contingency patient which means that his room & board would be paid by Medicaid when he was accepted to Medicaid, sunflower park required me to give them a credit card or some other means of payment knowing they had to wait for Medicaid to pay them! (All of you Medicaid contingency folks realize that you are not required to guarantee any type of payment if you're waiting on Medicaid to approve your application! Sunflower should never have asked for a payment for the first month! They took him as a contingent Medicaid meaning they take the chance the application wouldn't be approved so if they didn't get paid Medicaid takes up to 90 days to run your application thru it's share the patient has to be taken care of like they r getting paid for that teeny tiny room! I gave 1 star and shouldn't have checked any stars! God help you if sunflower is the only thing you can find to put your loved one in, you'd be better off leaving them at a neighbors house! There's a better home in Wills Point you should use !!!

I am a friend or relative of resident
After my experience this past Sunday I am being VERY generous giving 1 star! My father was a resident at Sunflower park for about 3 months. This past Sunday my daughter phoned to request they not take a dinner tray to my Daddy because we were going to bring dinner to him their response was, "great, we'll see you soon." I walked into my fathers room to find him on oxygen & unresponsive!! When I asked why he was on oxygen I was told his oxygen level had dropped below 95 so they put it on him the day before...I have NO problem with them making that decision my problem is his children were not notified!! They had also given him morphine without notifying his children!! When hospice left my fathers room Sunday morning they left orders for his children to be notified which Sunflower Park neglected to do! If I hadn't showed up when I did my siblings note myself would have been present when our father passed...it was bad enough none of us were with him on his last day until the last 3 hours of his life!!

Sunflower Park is a small facility but it's a nice nursing home. It's very clean and it's well-staffed. The only complaint I have is the rooms are too small. They can improve on their space. The staff has been extremely helpful. Mother's not easy to deal with but the staff has been wonderful. Resident activities include exercises and bingo. They also have ice cream days and church service every day. They also go out on outings like going to Wal-Mart or wherever they need to go.

I visited this facility
Other nursing homes that I have visited seem sterile and very impersonal, but Sunflower Park is very beautiful and more homey than most. I like the fact that residents are free to roam throughout the facility as they have a mind to, instead of being confined to their rooms. Sunflower Park also offers a lot of games, crafts, and socializing events for the residents to participate in. This makes it a little more bearable for residents who would rather be home than in a nursing home. I do believe that some of the staff could be a little more friendly. Most are very friendly and have personal relationships with the residents, but some seem to be distant and cold towards the residents. I believe that if you choose to work in an environment that requires you to interact with people, that you should be more open and friendly towards people. Overall, I think that Sunflower Park is a great place for your loved ones. No matter the attitude of some workers, residents are well cared for.
