I visited this facility

We went to Sunrise of Buffalo Grove, and it was an overall excellent experience. I would've really liked to have gone to that facility. It's excellent and beautiful. I was there for a buffet and the food was absolutely delicious. The staff was just so extremely friendly, attentive and answered all of my questions. They went out of their way.

my father in law is a resident. The staff is very nice and caring. However, we agree with the gentleman below about the upkeep of the property. Even from when that was stated last August there are still 10-15 and even more dead trees and plant material. The building is not maintained in the way it should be. The building is about 30-35 years old and needs a new roof, painting and wood replacement on the exterior. The interior is in poor shape. The chairs in the dining room have arm rests that are coming up, blinds have broken slats, carpeting in many areas needs replacement. When the rates went up January 1, 2017 it was stated that they needed more money to maintain the building & for staff. I don't see either as have happened. The building is in poor shape. We spoke and wrote with the director and she said it was being taken care of and has not to date. We're almost into June 2017 and nothing has been done.

We were very warmly welcomed at Sunrise; the woman there was unbelievably kind, gentle, and generous with her time. It was warm and inviting. It's a much smaller facility, and it's not new. It was not a good match for us, and my parents are still very active. They have a lot of in-house events, and there's a library.

My wife is in Sunrise. The care managers are, for the most part, very kind, very capable, and very good. However, there were some who are just doing their jobs, and the management is unresponsive. The maintenance of the building is not great nor hygienic. Outside, they have 10 to 15 dead trees that they haven’t addressed. I think they need to update the interior and the furniture in the dining room. Their activities program is very weak, so they need to replace the activities person.

Everything at Sunrise of Buffalo Grove was very nice. The people were very accommodating and they took time to take me around and show me what they have. It was a very nice visit overall. The rooms were fine. They have a salon and a lot of areas for activities. The dining area was small but it was nice, clean, and uninstitutional. I would recommend this facility.

Sunrise of Buffalo Grove is nice, but they're highly priced. I loved their dining area. It's all assisted living, and I think it's the thing that kind of shocked my mother to make the change right now. She's still in independent living, and everyone there was assisted or memory care. The staff was great. The calendar of activities is limited because it's a smaller facility, and also no doctor visits there. There's a grocery store nearby, so there are things nearby.

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 am a friend or relative of a resident

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.
