Assisted Living Reviews for Sungarden Terrace

December 28, 2015

By Harry26

I visited this facility

My mother likes Sungarden Terrace. It is the only one that we toured that she likes. It is warm and not overly decorated. It is not like a hotel; it is more like a community. The staff was very factual, answered all of my questions, and explained the procedures for putting someone in assisted living. They were the only ones who gave us the form that the doctor had to fill out. They were very calm, informative, and didn't give us the hard sell. These people were more interested in helping. My mother has a place there, but she will not move in until after Christmas. She has a studio, which is just one room with a bath. My mother likes the food. As for activities, they have the kinds of things that interest my mother. They have Bible studies, and a priest that comes and conducts mass, including a Christian service, in their actual chapel. They have some exercise programs and bring in outside speakers. They have a covered patio area where they have barbecues in good weather.
