Sunrise Of Monterey Description

At Sunrise of Monterey, our passionate and experienced team will provide you with the utmost attention in a cozy atmosphere. Amidst the fragrant pines of Monterey County, CA lies our lively community with vibrant gardens and a cozy patio--the ideal spot for conversation and tranquility. Our connection to Monterey runs deep, and we proudly make use of our location in the heart of this vibrant community by incorporating it into our daily activities. Just steps away from the vibrant Fisherman's Wharf and stunning Monterey Bay, our residents can embark on lunch outings and boat trips to Elkhorn Slough for an up-close encounter with majestic whales, adorable sea otters, and playful seals.

Assisted Living
For seniors who cherish their autonomy yet require some help with everyday tasks like bathing, dressing, transportation and medication reminders - assisted living is the perfect solution. Seniors can choose to live in their own private suite or with a companion, freeing them from the mundane tasks of laundry, cooking and cleaning. The Sunrise team goes the extra mile, tailoring an Individualized Service Plan (ISP) to each resident's individual assisted living care requirements.

Memory Care
Sunrise Senior Living's memory care services are tailored to each person's unique needs. Dementia gradually encroaches upon one's mental capacity to perform the ordinary tasks of daily life. Our memory care services provide a secure and invigorating atmosphere for those with dementia--including its most widespread manifestation, Alzheimer's.

Respite Care
Elderly individuals can enjoy a brief holiday at an assisted living facility through respite care. For seniors who have recently been released from the hospital or are managing a health condition, it is recommended that they take extra care of themselves. When a caregiver takes an extended break or for seniors who are looking to experience living independently, this option is also accessible. Depending on the area, our respite care services can be tailored to meet a range of needs, including assisted living support, memory assistance and skilled nursing.

At Sunrise of Monterey, CA, our devoted culinary squad strives to ensure that all residents are delighted with their dining experience. Perched along the picturesque Monterey Bay and nestled near Salinas Valley, our locals are spoiled with a bounty of delectable seafood delicacies and fresh produce - not to mention their favorite: succulent fish straight from the depths of beautiful Monterey Bay. Mexican fare is a top pick in our community! The residents are utterly enamored with the delectable combination of enchiladas and quesadillas.

    My mom was at Sunrise of Monterey for two years in the memory care neighborhood. The small group setting worked well for her. The food was very good, and the care was excellent All the staff are capable and a few are absolute gems. I have fond memories of enjoying the live music performances at Sunrise with Mom.

    My dear friend Dorothy died at Sunrise Senior Living in Monterey on Friday, March 2. She was 100 years old and moved into Sunrise at 99. She had all her marbles, as she would often say. I am writing to thank every staff member at Sunrise for their affection and care of Dorothy. I was there a lot with Dorothy. I was there when caregivers came and went from her room and brought her daily medications, when they took her to the dining room when they helped her with showering, and when they brought her beloved strawberry ice cream. I was there when she was failing and the nurse Maria did not leave her side in the dead of night and/or had other caregivers check on Dorothy every 30 minutes. Dorothy loved it at Sunrise and told me often. ""Everyone is so nice here", she would say to me. I wish I could name all of you but there are so many good, hard working employees: Pam, Maria, Roger, Jaime, Jessica, Shannon, Angel, Cathy, Desiree, Cynthia , "the drug lady", Austin. Robin, Tanya. I am forgetting so many. If you have a loved one and you are looking at care facilities - Sunrise is your home. Thank you Sunrise for taking such good care of my dear, dear friend. I will never forget.Jane WynnPacific Grove, CA

    Sunrise of Monterey has been a huge blessing for our family. My mom has needed memory care for a while now. The Sunrise staff, and particularly Darlene, takes care of her as if she is simply part of their family. This is how the Sunrise staff treats the residents - with genuine care. Then, after living alone for too long, my Dad moved in as a regular resident. He literally seems to have gained years on his life, smiling and laughing a lot more and enjoying the activities, movement classes, and other residents and especially the staff. We feel extremely lucky and grateful that Sunrise of Monterey exists and that the staff are so attentive and caring for our immediate family.
