Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise of Seal Beach

I visited this facility

I looked at Sunrise of Seal Beach. I liked the interaction, the activities that were scheduled, and the care for the seniors. Their dining room was set up very well. They had menus for all dietary restrictions. It was like going into a 4-star hotel room. They had activities like dancing, bingo, and trips for people who would like to go to casinos or shopping malls.

Mom is in Sunrise of Seal Beach; everything is fine, and we’re very happy with it. The food is fine; they have a menu. We were looking at cost, location, and support staff, and we felt that Sunrise met our needs. The facility is very close to us.

Sunrise of Seal Beach was extremely neat and clean. It was so pleasant. It did not have any odor. The food that they served was excellent, and the caregivers were fabulous. They really cared. My father-in-law was well taken care of during his last days.

Our Grandmother is in the memory unit and there were lots of promises made about our ability to communicate with the staff before she moved in. Once the papers were signed it was very difficult to find out if she was eating, taking her meds etc. The rooms are very small and some are dark, depressing. Her personal things, hair brushes, toiletries etc. are locked up so that she can't get them when she wants. The staff says they have wandering patients who go through others rooms taking things. We wanted to know where the supervision was by the staff. Not very happy at this point.

I visited this facility

Sunrise of Seal Beach is a beautiful facility. They seemed extremely well-organized and the place is fresh and new. The place is very convenient. The rooms are very small and that's a drawback for me. There is no access to the outdoors from the rooms itself. You need to go down the long hallway. They do provide residents who would enjoy a glass of wine with one sometimes and I think that's nice.

I have been to visit my grandmother twice since she has been in this facility. The outside of the building is well kept and the structure itself is not damaged. The inside is clean and you can smell the clean air when you enter. I was not very happy with the staff in general. The nurses that were around the front door and the front desk were not attentive to me at all. I walked in and looked lost while they just continued their conversation until I had to interrupt them. That happened both times and with the same two nurses. The nurses that were caring for my grandmother were more personable and seemed to be much nicer. I already had a bad vibe from the beginning though so I just wanted to get my grandmother and go to lunch. My grandmother was well dressed and clean. During lunch when I was asking her questions about being in her new home she had nothing bad to say about the facility. That was comforting for me to know she enjoyed it there. Overall the facility seemed to be able to care for her adequately and she was happy there.

My father lived at Sunrise for several years after our mother passed away. It was one of the best decisions we ever made as a family. Dad had his own private apt giving him the independence he valued so highly while we children could rest assured knowing he was safe and lovingly watched over by the staff. As a family, we all loved having dinner together once a week in the beautiful dining room. Weekends always meant some type of fun social event that we all could attend with our dad. Sunrise is a wonderful place.
