I visited this facility

Sunrise of Buffalo Grove was very nice and very clean, the people were very friendly, and the staff was very professional. The rooms were really pretty. The people seemed to be doing the normal things, like crafts, watching television, and singing. The dining area was very clean and very well laid-out.

I moved mom to Sunrise of Buffalo Grove. It's just been three weeks since she was there and they made it sure she is comfortable and try to help her adjust. I chose it because it was small and it seemed like there the ratio of the caregivers to the residents were better. It's a great place. The staff was fabulous. They are very nice and caring. They call me when they have concerns. Every one of my friends that have gone with me to visit my mother has said, "I want to live here". I want to live there too. The rooms were very nice. They seemed more than accommodating to the residents. They are very clean and the facility is pet friendly. With their activities, they do have an activity room and they do exercises. They also play bingo and make some things like bracelets. I like everything about this place.

We recently found ourselves in need of care for our Mother. I had no idea where to start. Caring.Inc provided several locations to look at. We were so pleased by this facility. The most important thing was Mom's safety. The care givers were everywhere with the residents. I loved the amount of activities offered to the residents. We had lunch there several times and found the food of an excellent quality. We moved Mom in a week ago and no longer fear for her safety. If there is anything I could view as needing improvement is more assistance in the paperwork. As expected there is a great deal of paperwork and we have found it necessary to obtain information multiple times from Mom's Dr. It is a stressful time when making this life altering change for our Mother. The need for additional work does not help the stress level. I feel so much better that Mom is now taken care of so well.

I visited this facility

The entrance is very large and there is a staircase that goes up to the second floor. The room right next to the entrance is spacious and has a old fashioned popcorn machine that is very cool. The rooms are extremely large, but the downside is there is no living area in some of the room. The bathroom is big and easy to use. The color scheme is a little depression because it seems like it is too old-fashioned and not modern enough but other than that it seems like it would be a nice place to live.

This is an awesome facility! The entire staff is so nice, and it just feels homey. They have a large dining room with delicious - sounding meals, and a parlor room with TV and a fireplace to stay cozy during the winter months. The rooms are spacious and clean, and there are various activities for the residents. There is bingo, concerts, trips, movies, exercise and so much more. The caretakers are nice and warm to all the residents, and there are even volunteers that come to help out. During my visit, I saw two volunteers playing a game with a resident, and another doing a puzzle with one. Everything is nice and spacious, and there is even an old jukebox (that doesn't work but is still a nice addition) and popcorn machine with actually popcorn that you can eat. Also, the facility is located close to a store plaza with Wendy's, Dominick's, a pizza place, and more, so it's easy to take your loved one out to breakfast, lunch or dinner. There are games that you can play any time you want, like banana grams, scrabble, left right center, and more. In addition to all this, every resident gets their own "memory box", made by volunteers with stickers, cutouts and photos of the resident and things that he/she likes. This is a wonderful place and I would recommend it to anyone.
