Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise of Old Tappan

I visited this facility

The staff was excellent. The food was excellent. The rooms were exquisite. It was a wonderful place, I was actually very happy with the experience I had there. And the best part of it all was that it was so nearby to where I live that it would have been perfect for my grandmother because I would have been able to visit her a lot. The only reason we did not choose for her to live here was because we decided to have her stay at home with us instead. But overall the service, the amenities, the location, the staff, the food and everything about this retirement community was lovely. I would definitely feel comfortable having a relative or a friend staying there, and I would want to stay in such a wonderful place myself when I am old enough to require assistance. Overall I would definitely give the place a five star rating.

I volunteered at the Sunrise Assisted Living facility in my town. This was to incur volunteer hours for my resume. Upon arriving at Sunrise Assisted Living, I met the manager, Elizabeth. She was wonderful and a delight. She had me working the games with the elderly. I would volunteer about 2 times a week. The elderly in the Sunrise Assisted Living Home were all wonderful. The Staff was very well organized and kind. Families seemed to enjoy their visits to the elderly.

I visited the sunrise facility of Old Tappan when I worked at a daycare center. I was with a group of staff that was bringing the preschoolers to the facility. The place looked magnificent from the outside. It was scenic and very large. The landscaping was also immaculate. The building was white and had plenty of room for the residents who lived there. I was greeted by a friendly director who showed us around and introduced us to some of the senior citizens. The living facility was warm and inviting. It was also very spacious and comfortable. The seniors who we interacted with were pleasant. They seemed very happy to be at the facility and got a lot of recreation and physical activity so that they stayed busy and avoided becoming bored. There was also a local park across from the facility so that the residents could get outside and enjoy the fresh air when the weather was nice. The temperature of the facility was perfect. It was neither too hot or too cold. In addition to my daycare center visiting, there are also a number of local schools that visit. This provides stimulation for the residents of the facility and allows them to interact with children. I feel that it is a great place for a senior to stay and the trained staff can help the residents right away when they need it.

The Sunrise Senior Living facility is a pretty enjoyable place to live for the elderly and retired. The staff is quite friendly, they do care very much, and enjoy to help thier tenants. In addition, they handle the elderly with humor, concern and dignity, even in difficult situations. You would really love them, the staff. The facilit is a large complex with two levels. On the first floor is a communal dining room, which is simple, neat and easy to get around for the elderly. Management on the other hand could be better, and in my opinion little below mediocre. The problem is that thier is little staff to care for the large amount of the elderly tenets. Some of the elderly would be yelling for assistance and would not be able to get the staffs attention, due to the fact of that there is not enough staff for this large complex.The medical care at this facility is good, the elderly do get thier medicine on proper time. Despite the management problem, its overall a good place for your dear retired family member to relax under great care. I Highly recommend it, and i can ensure you that you will not need to worry about anything bad happening at Sunrise Senior Living facility.

Friend or relative of resident

I really liked the place from the outside. I was hoping it was as nice from the inside and it was. Very friendly staff to welcome you as you enter. The food in the place was great. I was visiting a relative but if I needed to choice a place it would be this place. The rooms were very clean and smelled great. I just hope this place doesnt change. I hope they keep up the good work. There was one thing I didnt like. I wish the rooms were a little bigger. If your living here you will want a good amount of space.
