Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise of Edgewater

We had a good experience with Sunrise. It was very clean, well maintained, and didn’t feel like an assisted living place. The food was very good. The care was not great, but good. The staff was very friendly, and accommodating. My father was comfortable there. He stayed a month before he passed away.

The staff at Sunrise of Edgewater couldn't be nicer. They gave us a nice tour and sat down with us to go over the options. It was a very clean place. I didn't see any activities because we went at night. I saw one room which they called the studio. It is small, but it is exactly what someone would need. The place is very nice, and they seemed caring. The place is clean, and they seemed to be involved with their patients. It is also close to where I live; that is why I went there.

I looked at Sunrise for my mom, and it was very nice. The rooms were very small. Going from a 10-room house to a 2-room apartment would be kind of hard. The food was excellent. The staff was very good.

We really liked Sunrise of Edgewater. It was a very positive experience. We were treated well, and our questions were answered. We looked at a studio and a 2-bedroom that could be shared. My sister thinks the shared 2-bedroom is ideal for my father.

Sunrise was very nice, comfortable, and looked a little more upscale. The rooms were fine and I thought the smallest room had a shared bathroom. The staff was very helpful, too.

I actually ended up putting my mom at Sunrise of Edgewater because it was closer to my house and so far it is working out well. I wanted to see my mom every day. They have a great group of staff which I think makes a big difference. They have a lot of activities and they bring people in from outside to perform like piano players. They also have bus trips. I think it’s a great facility.

Sunrise at Edgewater is a really good facility. The staff are also very good and very caring. They kept my mother-in-law clean. She was happy with food and the room. They kept the room clean and they kept her busy. They offer a lot of interaction. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

Sunrise is very nice. It's very cheerful, a little bit chintzy and a little bit Victorian, a nice mix of furniture, cheerful carpet and cheerful people. Very well decorated, very well laid out; exactly what you would hope for. But, that place was quite empty. I know people that live there and they are saying that they serve good food in there.

The locale of Sunrise of Edgewater offers much convenience for any person who is looking for an assisted living facillity that offers all of the amenities of city living but just outside of one of the biggest cities of the world,New York City.Residents can easily take a bus just blocks from the facillity New York. The facillity is located on River Road, a road that follows at the edge of the Hudson River. This facillity offers stunning views of the New York City skyline. It is a relatively new facillity therefore it contains many state of the art features. The staff of this facillity is impeccable. The individual rooms are all clean, good smelling, and homey. The wellness visits by the nursing staff give all of the residents the opportunity to voice their concerns in a very convenient manner. The meals that are served are well made.This facillity is one of the best I have ever seen.

The location of the facility could be better. It is on the water and has a view of the NYC skyline. However, because of this the tide leaves a horrible smell. Although the location could be better, they do have an adequate facility. They have Tennis courts and a golf range not very far from the home. The staff doesn't seem to eager about working there.

I visited this place about 6 months ago. It seemed to be a place where retired or old or people that cannot live on their own seem to have an easier time adjusting to a life where they constantly need someone to care for them. One problem I had with the place is that some areas had a very foul odor or smelled really bad. Some areas of the building smelled of old dried urine that had not been cleaned in weeks. Other than the smell problem the place seemed to be successful in their goal. The bad smell might be the only thing that can potentially drive away customers or visitors or even people that might be posing as visitors but are actually there to evaluate the place. Once this one problem is resolved, i cannot see how this place cannot be a very successful and thriving home that many people can look forward to being in when they get older and can no longer live on their own or need someone to look after them. Other than that I have no other comments or concerns about this assisted living home.
