After exhaustive years long effort to persuade a close relative to consider assisted living, circumstances changed and the option was no longer a choice. Several hospital stays, rehab care, and countless professional's suggestions to consider assisted living led us to Sunrise Playa Vista. The staff involved with introductory tours/application and assessments were exceptional in their professional attention, in their respect for the diagnosis the family was facing. Memory care requires an amazing amount of patience from family with an affected patient. Memory care involves ALL concerned, caregivers, patient, family and friends. Sunrise Playa Vista staff are very well trained, knowledgeable, experienced, compassionate and consistently aspire to protect the dignity of the residents, and take the time answer concerns of those responsible for their family member. We've had opportunity to see our relative thrive at Sunrise. The appearance, the spirits, the over-all health, nutrition, cleanliness, increased socialization, every aspect of daily living needs, are addressed, consistently, in a most individual and orderly fashion. Guests or residents who walk in the front door are greeted with the same kindness and demeanor by ALL the staff, from administration, to caregivers, and each and every staff person. During my visits I spend time on the entry level, and it is very comfortable for residents choosing to have a quiet reading spot, or dine in the on-site restaurant, or walk about, or sit on the patio. The memory floor is attentive (always) to the various & changing needs of the residents. Our family has visited often, and we are all grateful for the opportunity to have our family member reside at Sunrise Playa Vista.

I moved my mother into Sunrise of Playa Vista on March 23, 2019. The Assisted Living Coordinator, Chauncey Brown, picked her up at her previous location and helped make the transition go smoothly as I stayed behind and worked with the movers. Everyone at the facility, Shannon Howell (Executive Director), Theresa Mack (Director of Sales), Jean Shoemaker (Business Office Coordinator), Linda Cartwright (Resident Care Director) Amy (Wellness Nurse), Barbara Tabb (Reminiscence Coordinator) and Latoya Johnson (Activities and Volunteer Coordinator) took an immediate interest in my mother's well being. When we needed help, the service was immediately provided - for example, moving a few pieces of furniture around, hanging up photos, fixing a knob on a closet. The above mentioned persons all worked as a team to make it an easy transition. When my mother needs assistance, whether she pushes her pendant, pulls the emergency chord or screams out loud for help, somebody immediately comes to her aid. It's a comfortable feeling for me to know that my mother is being monitored closely. Whether it's her pills, sugar level, making it to meals, getting through the night, dealing with pain, etc., the staff is taking care of her needs. Thus far, I really like my mother's Care Managers, especially Bri. They take an interest in helping my mother no matter what her mood is like. When we first arrived, I found my mother's laundry neatly folded, and as I began to hang up her clothes, Bri came in and mentioned that she would do this weekly for my mother. My mom has a specific way of wanting all her clothes to be color coordinated and hung in a specific direction. Bri does this for her weekly. When I think of Sunrise of Playa Vista, what comes to my mind, is the friendliness of each individual staff member and how each person tries to give my mom dignity in a very kind manner. Each time I enter the facility, I find it alive, active and clean. I definitely recommend Sunrise of Playa Vista if your love one cannot live on his or her own any more.

I cannot thank the wonderful staff at Sunrise Playa Vista enough for the care they are providing to my mother. She has advanced Alzheimer's disease but is physically active which makes her a challenging resident. Thankfully, the staff on her reminiscence floor are well skilled and know how to deal with her level of disease. They provide my mother with both physical and cognitive options throughout her day. For example, my mother was a housewife that loved to cook and bake and they let her help in the kitchen which makes her feel useful and needed. In addition, she is part of their walking club and goes on several walks every day, plays bingo and participates in senior bowling. My mother is safe, well cared for and adjusting very well to her new home. The Executive Director, Shannon, and the Reminiscence Director, Barbara, are truly extraordinary women that are compassionate and hands on. Barbara has helped me so much and been such an active part of getting my mother's needs met. I cannot thank her enough. This quality leadership is reflected in the care givers and staff that work so hard with all of the residents. Every time I set foot onto that 4th floor I see happy, well cared for residents engaged in meaningful activities. I think the biggest compliment I can give Sunrise Playa Vista is moving my father into their assisted living community. He recently suffered some health problems and needs 24 hour care. Because of the positive experience with my mother's care , Sunrise Playa Vista was the obvious choice!

Care takers at this place are phenomenal. They go above and beyond for my Aunt. They do not get paid enough, but nonetheless they are amazing with her. Every time I walk in they are keeping her busy and take really good care keeping things clean

My 96 year old mom moved into Sunrise in Playa Vista several months ago. Never did I think that my mother would ever live in an 'old age home.' Memory issues, functional decline, confusion.... but still wants to be relevant and be with her family. She had a year long history of falls and several painful visits to the emergency room and rehab. She moved into my house with caregivers 24/7. It was ok, but stressful seeing my mom so fragile and slipping away. My brother and I, with extreme reservation, visited most every assisted living community located close enough to my house so visiting her would be easy....minimal traffic. Sunrise and two others were low on our list because of the cost. Bottom line... After spending time at other places, Sunrise was our choice.... Yes, the sales presentation was first class... everything was presented to us clearly and all our questions were professionally addressed.... and mom moved in. Normal fears and concerns... did we do the right thing? Will Sunrise Caregivers be good and understanding when my mom becomes confused and needy? What about her falls? Meds? This is the tip of my iceberg. Mom is on the Memory Floor... come visit! This is community at it's finest. Every single resident is pampered properly. The wonderful Caregivers have so much patience and understanding for each resident. It's like a community and they all support one another in the care of our parents and grandparents. I know there are always issues and the occasional crisis.... some drama or situation. I've witnessed the good and the not so fortunate situations. I visit mom almost every day. I see a lot. What I see is that my mom is treated the way my mom should be treated. She has never complained to me about any staff member... quite the contrary. Every time I visit, she tells me about who did something wonderful for her... like doing her nails, brushing her hair... just sitting on the terrace talking... helping her choose her lunch or dinner choice.... The gentle Caregivers that help her in the shower... always something nice. By vocation, I'm a Rehab Therapist... many years seeing patients in all facilities and settings, and I swore my parents would never step foot into any building. Sunrise is really a benchmark building, community, whatever you want to label it. I walk in to visit my mom hoping for a good visit. I leave later knowing my brother and I did the right thing.
