Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise of Columbia

If I could have been able to afford it, Sunrise of Columbia would have been the one I’ve chosen. The staff that I talked to was very cordial. She even allowed me to talk to some of the residents, and everybody had nice things to say. They were just people who were just passing by. They introduced me to the person and told me that I could ask them any questions I would want to ask. So I asked them questions, and they answered freely. They were very well pleased with the arrangements there. The living quarters were very nice, and I had lunch there that day, which was also very nice. They had different people from different departments come by who explained to me what their position was. They were in the process of renovating the facility, so there was construction going on, but you could still feel the warmth that you received. It was a very pretty place.

Sunrise was fine, and I really thought it was good and pretty decent. I saw nothing wrong with them, and the people were very friendly. They were undergoing some renovations, but everything else was really nice. The rooms were really large and spacious, which I really like as well.

Sunrise of Columbia was great. My grandmother lived there for many years, and we were happy with it. The food was fantastic, the care was wonderful, and everything that she needed was there. Everybody was very welcoming. My grandmother lived on the third floor; that's where the Alzheimer's section was. They cared about her safety. They also made sure she was bathed and had clean clothes on. The people there really did look out for her.

This home was wonderful. The workers seem to treat the residents like family. The home was clean and comfortable. What I liked best was that the employees knew the residents by name which tells me they interact frequently. I only wish my family and I could afford to place my dad here.

The room in Sunrise was smaller than where she was before, but it’s bigger than some of the other places we looked, which is good. The staff was very friendly and very professional.

I really liked Sunrise of Columbia. Despite the fact that it was in a metropolitan area, you would not feel that you were close to the city, which would be something that my mother would enjoy. It was clean and did not feel like a nursing home. It was more like living in a bed and breakfast. It was very nice. I do not have anything bad to say about it. I was not able to do a food tasting, but they showed us the menu, and everything looked good. The dining hall area was really nice. We saw some rooms that were in good shape. The woman who gave us the tour was really nice and obviously very knowledgeable about the place. It seemed like there was a lot of different things to do. They had a small walking path, which would be something my mother would want.

My first impression of Sunrise of Columbia was that it was well-maintained and attractive. It looked like a pleasant place. My room is OK. It is adequate. The food is good; but it is not as fat-free as I would like it. It seems to have a little more fat in it than I really care for. The dining room is very spacious. It is also pleasant and clean. They have a lot of activities. They go out to different restaurants for lunch. They also take them out on the country ride. There are activities here in the building where they bring in entertainers, and they have exercise programs.

We did not think that the physical therapy department at Sunrise of Columbia was quite up to what the other facility had offered. I would still give them a 5-star rating. They were excellent. I do not think they would not provide what people need. It was just that our emphasis was on socialization and physical therapy. Other patients or residents who do not have that emphasis would be very happy there.

We really liked Sunrise a lot because the people were super friendly and attentive to the residents. I thought the layout of the facility was well set up for the residents. Here's the thing that I really liked with this -- they stress with the residents that if they needed anything for them to press their attendant call button, and those are the reasons that we really liked them. They bring in entertainment from the outside, and they have musical things and what have you. I believe they bring in pets like therapy animals and what not. I know that they have physical therapy and occupational therapy that will actually come there to the facility to work with the residents. They've got games and activities, and they may have exercise classes and stuff like that. I also know that they take them on trips outside to various restaurants and points of interest. The only reason why we didn't go with Sunrise was the price. What really impressed me about them was that everyone associated with the Sunrise facility really seems to enjoy what they are doing, and they enjoy helping the residents.

We visited Sunrise of Columbia, and we were very pleased with the facility. The staff was wonderful, and we saw the staff interacting with the residents. They seemed to have a good ratio of staff to residents. We were pleased with the activities that they offered and the kind of a homey feel to Sunrise.

My visit at Sunrise of Columbia was wonderful. They were all very courteous and very kind. They gave me a lot of information. They allowed me to tour the facility and speak directly to the caregivers and staff. The sales manager was outstanding. Everything was completely fine. It's just too expensive. We would have two parents, and the total cost for both of them per month would have been $11,000 or more. We can't pay that. I didn't believe the response time for the caregiver. They said it would be between 5 and 12 minutes. I don't see how that can be possibly true, especially if your accommodations were at the end of a very long hallway. The hallways there were very long. If those caregivers are engaged somewhere else, it is not possible for them to respond in 5 to 12 minutes. That claim was not realistic. It was a lovely facility with lovely people and a lovely program. I just think it was not adequate for what we needed and too expensive for what we could afford.

I had high expectations with Sunrise of Columbia. It is an upscale facility, and it's expensive. But I really did not feel looking at the rooms as if that was completely justified. I wasn’t as impressed by the man who talked to us. I don’t know; it was just the feeling I got about the place. I just felt like he wasn’t maybe as tuned in to what I was looking for as the woman at the other facility I went to. Their dining room looked impressive, but I didn’t eat there. I only saw the rooms once, and I didn’t feel that it was significantly superior to the other facility to warrant the amount of extra money that they were charging. I also didn’t get the same explanation as to the ability to move care levels and the medical staff that was available to the people. Maybe he didn’t explain it or I didn’t answer her questions, but I would say it was more evident.

This is a beautiful assisted living facility right in the heart of Columbia, Maryland. My grandmother began staying at the facility 10 months ago, and I have not seen her this happy in a very long time. Suffering from alzheimer's, it is beneficial to her to have a full time trained staff, around the clock. She attends daily activities with her peers and enjoys the amount of care she is given. The staff there even does her laundry once a week! I always remember her being a fairly picky eater; however, she always talks about the amount of options there are when it comes to dining. Receives three meals a day and sometimes decides to snack on other items! I live close to the area so it is beneficial for me to be able to visit her frequently. The facility has no visiting hours, but only because you can visit whenever you'd like! Great for my hectic schedule. Overall, I give this facility a 100 percent.
