Assisted Living Reviews for Sunrise at Mount Vernon

Terrible facility the housekeepers don't clean the same hair and fecies are in the shower the care givers do literally everything their overworked some are untrained I see the caregivers work in the kitchen right after they changed my dad who had a BM it was a turn off for me I couldn't eat the food is terrible very unappetizing. Warning don't go there and if you have a loved one here get them out fast

Sunrise was neat and clean, but the rooms were pretty average and small. They showed me a shared room. The entrance was very nice looking, and the dining area was nice. The people were professional. It smelled nice because the room I went into had potpourri.

Looks are deceiving. This facility is not what is appears to be. Before you place anyone here make sure you speak to several of the residents and not just the sales staff. The tours are designed to show you only what they want you to see. The food is horrible, the rooms are dirty, the staff are untrained and unskilled, and memory care is an area where they warehouse residents. Sunrise assisted living seems to be America's dirty little secret. Everyone knows what is happening but nothing is done to improve quality of care. I hope this review helps someone from making the same mistake I made!

Sunrise of Mount Vernon was typical of the Sunrise facilities. Unfortunately, we did not have an appointment when we went there so the person who normally gives the tours was not available. There was someone else there, and we looked at a unit and thought it was very nice; it just wasn’t for us. We happened to be in the area for another reason, and we just went there. We just were shown a renovated apartment, what they did, and how they changed everything out, and that was pretty much it. I thought they did a good job. They replaced all of the appliances, the cabinets, and the flooring, and they painted the whole place. It pretty much looked like a new apartment, and I’d give that a four.

There have been a few glitches at Sunrise at Mount Vernon, but overall I’m pleased. The staff’s work ethic and work attitude is great. I’ve not encountered anybody that hasn’t been upbeat and positive. My mom is in a single room that has a bathroom, a little refrigerator, and a cabinet; it could hold a queen-sized bed if you wanted. They offer a whole bunch of activities. There’s gardening, bingo, arts and crafts, and painting. There’s a walking club. After a certain amount of points with the walking club, you get to go out in the community for ice cream. The food is freshly made; I’ve eaten it myself. It’s healthy, tasty, and filling.

Sunrise at Mount Vernon seemed to have a broad spectrum of activities, and they seemed to be able to accommodate what I might need. They had an outdoor garden, and they had different things that the people can participate in. They had an eating area upstairs and downstairs, and they had transportation to other places. They had doctors available. The staff seemed friendly, accommodating, and professional.

My husband is at Sunrise at Mount Vernon. It is fine. He likes this facility. His room is roomy, and there is a nice scenery out the window. It also has a high ceiling. There is also a sink-and-kitchen area and a dining area within the room. My husband is in the Reminiscence unit, and just this afternoon, they had a piano player and a singer. They would also play bingo and word games. They have a TV too that usually has old TV programs. They have physical therapy as well. I like the staff, but they probably need more of them to take care of the a.m. care and maybe more interaction with the residents. They don't seem to interact as much as I think would be helpful. However, Sunrise at Mount Vernon is a beautiful place, and everything is quite lovely.

Sunrise at Mount Vernon has a memory care center. I visited this place for my mom. My visit was wonderful. They have a very caring staff. They followed up with me. What I like about this facility was that it was right next to the hospital, and they have a memory care facility. This place was very clean. It was very nice and clean. The yard and the landscape were up-to-date. The rooms were good; they were large.

We are going to Sunrise at Mount Vernon because, first of all, it is owned by a big organization that also owns 5 hospitals in this area, so the bad name of Sunrise for financial problems don't exist there, and it is right on the same property as a hospital. It is across the street from a whole slew of doctors -- a couple of which we have used -- and then it is the closest one to the house with the exception of the one on Duke Street. They just turned a whole section that used to be assisted living into memory care, so everything in it is new, and they had first class furniture, it is just very nice. I haven't tried the food, but that is not a big problem for my wife.

I would have like to see more one on one time with the people living there. Most seemed understimulated and very lonely. Our group was a special occasion, maybe more outside entertainment would help. The healthcare at this facility seemed to be better then the social care. All patients seemed coherent and none seemed overly drugged or medicated. Overall Most of the elderly in this facility seemed to be taken very well care of and be overall rather content with there lives here. I would consider this facility for one of my loved ones if the need ever did arise. I would feel safe and comfortable knowing they would be taken care of.
