Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise of Grosse Pointe Woods

September 09, 2011

By KellyGirl1

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother has been living at Sunrise at Grosse Pointe Woods nursing home for the past 5 years. My mother had started experiencing the symptoms of early-onset (65) Alzheimer's disease. My mother had always been such a mentally vibrant individual, so the idea of her mind eroding away was terrifying for her and for me!We looked at other assisted living facilities that were on par or even a little nicer than Sunrise in terms of accommodations and grounds, but the real selling point for us was their specialized care programs for individuals suffering from memory loss and mild to advanced Alzheimer's symptoms. It was important to us to find a care facility that could care for mother at the different stages of her illness. Because we did not know how quickly her condition would deteriorate, we didn't want to put her in one facility only to have to move her a year and half later because her needs could no longer be met.The staff have been so supportive and attentive to both me and my mother. They have done a wonderful job at preserving those parts of mother's life that were most important to her even though she can no longer remember why they are important. Their sensory stimulation environments and individualized care is just fantastic.
