Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise of Golden Valley

Everything about the tour at Sunrise was pleasant. However, we did not feel it was a good fit. The rooms were average and clean. There was a library and a calendar of different events organized to stay at the facility or to go out, such as shopping. The dining area was welcoming, clean, and had a vast menu with a lot of different choices.

Sunrise of Golden Valley was the one that we liked the best. It was absolutely beautiful inside. It looked like a mansion. At the same time, it was looking like somebody’s house, and everybody who worked there had a smile on their faces. The man who worked there and did the tours and interview with us -- we were also very impressed by him. You could tell that he really enjoyed his job and believed in what he did. If you took money out of the equation, we would be at Sunrise of Golden Valley, but it was just far more expensive than what‘s justifiable. The coolest thing we saw when we walked in was they had a café. It was a coffee area where they served treats and popcorn, and the residents can order coffee. They even had a Happy Hour, and kind of made it seem that their lives were as normal as possible. They had a beautiful garden and grounds. They also had very good activities, and it seemed like they really understood the Alzheimer’s and dementia treatment. They weren’t just treating them like any nursing home patient. It was like they really knew their stuff about caring for people with memory loss. Sunrise of Golden Valley was definitely our favorite.

Sunrise of Golden Valley promised a lot of things that they didn't deliver. For the amount of money that you spend, he had to share a room with somebody else. That's how they have their rooms, and it was not a very good experience. I think they have too many aides, and the big thing is that they don't communicate at all. I can tell one aide one thing, but they won't tell the next person, and it's continual. They just don't communicate at all.

We really liked Sunrise of Golden Valley. It was very friendly and very homey, and we would have chosen it for my sister. We really liked everything we saw. There were absolutely no negatives. The people were friendly, and all the administrative personnel were excellent at their jobs.

I was extremely impressed with Sunrise of Golden Valley. It was an excellent and very nice facility. It seemed like they had a wonderful staff. It was very well set up. I liked the idea that they could go from minor assisted living to hospice care without having to move. The rooms and apartments were very nice. Their grounds and facility location were excellent. The dining area seemed very good. They had choices for the meals, so that was very good.

Sunrise of Golden Valley was a very homey and very comfortable senior home. All of the people were so friendly. One great thing was there was that there was a nine-year-old golden retriever as a greeter. Also, they bake cookies all day long, so the lobby smelled like cookies. It would be a year or so before we move in to a senior housing. When you were going from a condo, in our case, the rooms were small, but they were very comfortable, adequate, well kept up, and well maintained. There were variations, and we saw three different apartment units depending on how much you would want to pay. We saw their dining room, but we did not try their food. Although, when we left, they gave us a coffee cake to take home.

I was very impressed with my visit at Sunrise. They had a sign and a frame that said "Welcome," and it was nice to see that. The marketing manager was very personable, and you can tell he cares about the place and the people. He called everyone by their names. The rooms were nice, but they were a bit small. The view wasn’t spectacular because it was in a residential setting. They had activities, and they take the residents fishing during the summer. They do have a dog and cat, but the grandchildren of my dad have allergies to both dogs and cats.

Sunrise of Golden Valley felt like a home. They let the people garden, they had little pots to make something out of, and it gives them some reason to get up and see if their plants are growing. They order off a menu, and they have a very nice dining room. Everything was very clean and very welcoming, and the people were all very nice and wonderful. It seemed the people really liked it there.

I absolutely love Sunrise of Golden Valley; however, they didn't have that elderly waiver, e.g., as you run out of money, you can't stay there and go on. That was hard for us because we are guessing my mother would probably outlive her money and we don't want to move her again. Sunrise probably would have been our first pick because it is right there, it is accessible. We were there when they were under construction, but it looked like they were doing very well with re-routing their guests. They had a dog there. The residents, they all seemed to stop and know the guy that we were talking to. It just seemed a really friendly and really caring place. Each floor had its own little community. They had their own little table at the end of the floor. It seemed really small and quaint. It seemed more quiet and yet you could go into the bigger areas. The community we looked at had only like five or six little apartments on that floor and for somebody who is confused, it would be very easy to just live right there. We just really love that setting because we were thinking my mother was going into dementia state.

The people that worked at Sunrise of Golden Valley were awesome and the people that lived there are fabulous. The rooms are very nice; they are beautiful. It was just a very nice place to go to, but mom is just not ready to move yet.

My grandfather had Alzheimer's and dementia and lived in the memory care unit of Sunrise. I was impressed by how much thought and creativity was put into the design of the floor my grandfather lived on. It was beautifully decorated and had "memory centers" interspersed between the rooms. These included displays of clothing, products, music and photographs from the 1940s and 50s. Residents also had personalized frames by their rooms with letters and photos of family members to help jog their memories. The residents are encouraged to spend time outside their rooms in the common areas and the floor had a very comforting and welcoming atmosphere. All in all I was very impressed with Sunrise, and would absolutely recommend it- especially for anyone in need of memory care.

Based upon a friend's recommendation, we decided to consider the Sunrise of Golden Valley assisted living facility for our uncle. Golden Valley is a western suburb of Minneapolis off of Interstate 394 and Highways 55 and 100, so there is easy access from the surrounding areas. They have a great physical fitness center and schedule a variety of creative and social activities. The group list of trips and clubs looked interesting and included many of our uncle's interests. They provide monthly wellness nurse visits to monitor health which is important to us due to our uncle's diabetes. The private rooms have comfy seating areas with nice, big chairs, which our uncle really liked. Each room features temperature controls. The kitchenette is sufficient, however, there could be a little more counter space. Anyone who really likes to cook may find it awkward. The bedrooms all have nice sized windows with beautiful views. The bathrooms are a good size with ample counter space. The main socializing room has a cozy fireplace with plenty of outside light. There is also an outside deck overlooking the manicured grounds. The Colonial décor in the main dining room is warm and friendly with a communal feel and a lot of light from long, wide windows. Our uncle used to do a lot of cooking, so socializing over food is important to him. We used to have big family meals and we think he'll really enjoy this atmosphere. There is also a café area with smaller tables for casual dining, which is good for guests. It was also great to know that our uncle could have his cat live with him!
