Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise of Burlingame

February 29, 2016

By Kathy118861650

I visited this facility

The staff at Sunrise of Burlingame was not very friendly and not very accommodating. It almost felt like it was an imposition going there just to see it. That was off-putting. My mother and I both got the impression that they were going to have a difficult time getting that place filled up because they were not welcoming. It had been opened a month from when we went there. The management should be more welcoming and friendlier or even pretend like they'd like to show you the place. It was like an inconvenience to them. The place was alright, not exactly homey, but the décor was nice.

Sunrise of Burlingame is clean. I'm impressed with them. They seem to care for the residents and have done a good job so far. They have a restaurant where three meals a day are served. The food seems good. There is a fixed menu, but you can also get sandwiches, eggs, and things, if you so choose. They have a TV lounge and a general lounge area as well. They have a lovely outside yard, which is quite nice. The rooms are fine, of decent size. They accommodate the bed, chairs, television, and other furniture. The staff check on him and has been very good in giving my ex-husband his medications, bathing him, and upholding his general well-being. They are very attentive if the person needs a lot of assistance. They are very nice people.

Sunrise of Burlingame seems fine. It’s a brand-new place, so everything was very fresh and clean. It has a nice, open environment, and it seemed like they have activities.
