Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise of Annapolis

I visited this facility

Sunrise has been great. If you need more services, you can go over to assisted-living and supported-living lifestyles, but they have their individual independent apartments as well. The rooms and apartments were great. It’s a newer facility, so it shows well when you walk in, and it’s really inviting because everything about it seems brand new. The staff was great. I went on a Saturday morning, so the staff was limited in what they were able to do, but I really liked it. It was also out of our price range. If I could afford it, that’s where I’d tell my mom to go.

We visited Sunrise, and it was very nice. I like them because I thought they were really great. It was right across the mall, and it was wonderful. I had a really positive reaction to it. It's just a complicated process trying to get her to agree to give up her condo. The staff was excellent. They treated us excellently. They were warm, friendly, and welcoming. They treated us really nicely. We saw someone that was cleaning, and they were really nice and friendly. They showed us a room that had a roommate, and I thought it seemed very comfortable. However, my mother-in-law is used to having her own condo, so she is just not quite ready to give that all up for what she thinks is a tiny room. They showed us several rooms actually. They showed us one that was kind of like a suite that was nice and big. I thought the suite room was big and roomy. The one bedroom room where they had to share was also nice and comfortable. It seems that it was divided up pretty evenly. Overall, I had a great experience with Sunrise.

My stepsister was in the Sunrise of Annapolis for two and a half weeks before she passed away. The place was very good, and the care was good as well. She was well-accepted there. We were very pleased with it. It was the perfect place for her. It worked out very well, and it was very homey. We were very happy with the care that they provided. It was absolutely clean, and they were very good about keeping it clean. They have resident cats and resident dogs that wander around the facility freely, and the residents enjoy having them.

My mother will be moving in to Sunrise next Monday. They have been very accommodating, very agreeable, and very pleasant. I like the friendliness and the helpfulness of the people during the application process. We like the homey atmosphere and the décor. She is looking forward to going there.

Sunrise of Annapolis was a beautiful place. It was probably a medium-sized facility, and it would definitely have been a place that my mom would have liked. It was clean, the whole place was very beautiful, the staff was very nice, and the residents all seemed nice, friendly, and happy. I would have really liked to have been able to take my mom there.

Sunrise of Annapolis is a fantastic place. The living facility was really nice. The food was institutional, but it was good. The attendants were just wonderful. They were more than kind and helpful when we needed help or when we have a question.
