Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise of La Palma

September 26, 2014

By Sue48

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My cousin found Sunrise of La Palma for my aunt, and they have embraced her. She seemed to have a lovely, caring, and very nice facility, I’m very happy she is there. She seems safe, well-cared for and that is really important to us. The staff cares so much for the residents, know all of the people, and are generally very nice. I’m very pleased that she is there and that helps a lot. It’s a difficult transition for anyone and it’s not easy, but she is safe and they’re attentive. The people that I’ve met that are dealing with her have genuinely been careful, so in that respect, I’m very pleased. The facility is small but lovely and clean. She has a beautiful room, clean, lovely, lots of lights, and it is very homey.

I visited this facility

Sunrise was okay. Clean, really nice area. People were very friendly. I really enjoyed it, too. It’s right by the hospital. I live right off of La Palma and it’s probably maybe 2 ½ miles down the street. They would have been closer for me. They have a little patio which was nice. I just didn’t think he needed that anymore. I wanted him in a more enclosed area.
