Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise at Mill Basin

My mother has been at Sunrise at Mill Basin for less than two months now. Its location is quite convenient. They have a dedicated memory loss center, which is what my mother needed. The facility itself is situated by the water, so it is very nice and seems like a comfortable place for her to be. The staff seems quite good and upbeat for the most part. The majority of the people that I met are very welcoming both to the residents and to the family as we visited. The food has been very good, actually, and has been one of the better parts so far because they have a good selection every day that my mom likes. They do some games, quizzes, and some art activities.

The other one I've seen and had more personal experience with is Sunrise Assisted Living. I've been in touch with them for a few years because I suspected my mother would need to go into assisted living at some point, and they can't be any nicer to me. They are so nice and very helpful with advice in trying to help me understand Alzheimer's, which we were suspecting my mother was going to be diagnosed with. It is very much like the other place, in that it is more luxurious and more like living in a very nice hotel, but they also have a very nice program and training for their staff concerning Alzheimer's care. So they're a 5-plus because I've already seen what their program is about for their Alzheimer's patients, at least a little bit; I've been introduced to it already. The rooms are very nice and carpeted, and the nice thing about it is that you could room two people with two separate bedrooms and each had separate baths as well, so you don't have to see who's going to use the bathroom first, and I thought that was an extra-nice touch. Also, the rooms each had a little kitchenette area, not that they could cook, and I don't even remember if they're allowed a microwave, but at least people were able to have their dishes, and they brought their own food in or something like that. It was nice in a way -- just a little bit of an apartment-style of living as opposed to just having a room with a bed, in a sense.

They had different things for the people to do and doctors on-staff depending upon the needs of the residents. I was satisfied with the price. They had three meals and snacks available. It didn't seem to be as roomy as the other place we visited though, and it didn't have as much space available -- outdoor and indoor. However, the staff was superb. They gave us a good idea of what Sunrise at Mill Basin was about, and we were able to meet with different varieties of people working in different areas. We got a good overall view of everything.

Sunrise at Mill Basin was a very nice place. The staff was very cooperative and very nice. We have no problem with them. The rooms/apartments were actually beautiful. They were freshly painted and had new rugs, plenty of closet space, and nice bathrooms. They're very nice. The dining room was more like a restaurant atmosphere. It was very nice. They did have some activities going on although I didn't really look into those too much because I was more looking into the rooms and how the staff would react to my mom's condition. The atmosphere was very nice; there were a lot of people going around. Everyone was down in the big day room talking, and it was very nice.

Sunrise at Mill Basin is fabulous. I visited two locations for Sunrise, and both are great. They have very good service, and it is very clean. They are really good and very attentive. I went with my mom, and she said she would go now if I would pay for her. She was ready to sign up, but she doesn't need assisted living. We all loved it. The facility itself is very spacious, open, and very inviting. It was colorful, and it was very enjoyable. It felt like almost a getaway or a vacation because it was very relaxing.

The staff at Sunrise Mill Basin was helpful and attentive. They weren't any problems with the staff. The rooms are nice and decent in size. The only thing was there wasn't any lock on the individual doors. There was a lock on the main door going in, but not on the individual door. The food was very good, they had exercises, and then at 10:30 they have certain type of board games, like bingo, or card games. Sometimes they had activities at night whether it's movie, TV setup, or entertainment where they would bring in people that play piano or sing. Once they brought in a guy who did a song and dance and even danced with the seniors. They also took them to drugstores, church, and shopping once a week. I think the food was very good. We found the people accommodating.

Sunrise at Mill Basin has the same things as the others. From what I understand, the same company makes the same furniture and the same company furnishes the area rugs. It's lovely, bright and elegant. This place is cheaper than the other Sunrise in other places. It is right on the water. It's Mill Basin, with boats and sea gulls. It's very pretty. The staff were very respectful, warm and listens to everybody's needs. I actually had a thanksgiving meal there and the food was awesome and the china was lovely. It's like a five star hotel or restaurant. They have all levels of rooms. They have shares, studios, one, two, three bedrooms and suites.

Overall, I think that the patients could be dressed and ready before visiting hours so that way visitors aren't waiting a long time to see their loved ones.Some of the patients could be kept cleaner, have their diapers changed more often, but the patients are generally maintained at a decent level.The facility itself is clean, with a good custodial staff. The staff cares about the patients and they make every effort to reach out to families when there is a concern.

My grandmother was a resident at this adult assisted living facility. She was living with my Aunts but was recommended to this facility because they had better health care supervision available. The first thing that strikes you about this facility is the garden and landscape at eh entrance. I originally moved here from Florida and it reminded me of the we propertied were built and maintained there. I an familiar with other locations in the city from driving by and this one absolutely blows them away. Not only is the entrance well kept, the grounds are well kept as well, even where the backyard is that runs into the boardwalk and terrace overlooking the water. The property is located on the water in Jamaica bay, it offers the opportunity to see the bay from several of the rooms. My grand mother had one of these and told us how tranquil the water was during the daytime.The location allows for a tranquil environment while being close to relatives and friends in the city. The staff is professional and the experience was excellent, the only draw back is winter, but then again it is for us all.

I am very pleased with Sunrise Mill Basin. I have 2 aunts in residence, which they are also pleased in where they are residing. As the months have passed each day i see a change in them. They have a get up and go push that they had lost. I recommend this facility. It is located in a beautiful area.

Overall the senior assisted facility is in good shape. The faculty is nice and has a smile on their faces for anyone that passes by the center. The seniors look happy and at ease in their environment. The facility looks pretty much clean and there are employees waking throughout the center to survey that everything goes smoothly. The rooms are spacious and the bathrooms are clean. Some of the employees have attitudes but most of them like their jobs and enjoy getting up in the morning to spend time with the seniors. I enjoyed my stay at the Sunrise Assisted Living Center.
