Assisted Living Reviews for The Rutherford Assisted Living

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

We loved having my grandmother in Sunnington for the 1st year or so, then they started slacking on her care. They were not notifying us when she was ill or had fallen. And was not checking up on her as they were suppose too. And I know someone who walked straight in at 4 am and the doors were unlock and walked all over looking for staff and finally went into the kitchen to find someone. Many residents have dementia/sun downers and the door is supposed to be locked at night and we are supposed to buzzed in. How scary is that! That my grandmother who has sun downers could have walked straight out and no one would have know. And she fell several weeks ago and broke arm and has has to have surgery and now in rehabilitation and they are implying they are don't want her to come back. Keep trying to have us pull her out. And we asked if she could be moved to the memory care since she has Alzhiemers and they are saying she doesn't qualify do to her not being mobile and that is not true. She walks with a cane at rehab and is actually more mobile now than she was before. Very unhappy! And very tempted call Better Business Bureau and let them know what has happened. They are just trying to cover there butts since we have been complaining. We have been documenting everything. Will post this on every review site.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I was at Sunnington Senior Care for four months, and it's a great place with caring people. The rooms were good, and they kept them really clean. They did the laundry and cleaning services.

I visited this facility

The staff were friendly and the patrons seemed to be well cared for and for the most part happy. It is a lovely building although the individual living quarters are small and more like hospital rooms for the most part. I was involved in helping with entertainment activities for the seniors living there, and many actively participated.

I visited this facility

This is a great facility with a professional staff and clean environment. I have personally toured the facility and the employees of the facility are well mannered and actually care about the health of the senior occupants. My family member who resided here found it very easy to get together with people who she identified with and grew close to many of the members. Food is awful looking, mushy greasy, and nothing fresh. I tasted it. The housing conditions were nice and cozy; they were equipped with numerous safety features which were an important factor in her decision to live there. Each resident has their own apartment with toilet facilities. They can set up their living space how they wish with furniture and decorations. Many of the apartments there have accesses to and outside patio area with trees and flowers. This Assisted Living also provided residents with field trips to local stores as well as sight seeing such as nature areas. Of course these are all optional and no one is forced to go. Workers there provided as much support as needed and are flexible how they help people. For the most part they seem to let the residents do their own thing, only assisting if needed. Overall, it is a good place.

When you walk into Sunnington Assisted Living, you feel like you are visiting a 5 Star Hotel! The atmosphere is warm and inviting to its residents as well as all visitors. Everyone who works at Sunnington seems to be very happy, and that means alot. I visited many places before choosing Sunning for my loved one. I truly enjoy every visit due to the wonderful loving staff. The employees go way beyond what is expected of them. They truly love the residents and will do anything to help family members feel like family and part of their team. The diatary department gets five stars also! The residents have many daily activities to choose from and are encouraged to attend. The activity director is wonderful! I tell everyone about how wonderful Sunning Assisted Living is.
