My mother lived here the last 2 years of her life. She had Alzheimer's, which progressed and required a higher level of care, which Sunrise supplied magnificently. From the Executive Director, Beth Jansen, down to the daily caring staff, we would not have been happier with the high level of service provided by Sunrise.

I want to express my sincere appreciation to everyone who helped me take my dad to the eye doctor on March 30.I initially contacted Charles. He was very patient and knowledgeable and explained how things would work. Jeanette, always cheerful and helpful, arranged a driver and transport for us. The young man who drove the van was exceptionally kind and competent. Thank goodness he knew exactly where we were going!Doris was her bright, efficient self as she helped my father prepare for the outing. And Abbe, the nurse, helped me get the required paperwork. Abbe is wonderful with my dad and so capable and gentle when she changes his dressing.Christabel was the aide who accompanied us. She did a great job and was very caring and flexible. At first she was not allowed to come into the exam room, and then she was allowed, and then she had to leave. She never lost her cool and was a great help to me.It all went like clockwork! It was very arduous for my dad and we found out that he has great vision and only needs readers, so it was worth it.My sister, Linda, who lives close to Sunrise usually takes my father to his appointment. This was my first experience working with your amazing staff and I am very impressed.Thank you so much for hiring such caring, compassionate people.

I have several family members at Sunrise on Conn, and have experiences with both the independent living and memory care components. I have to say that it has been a really, really good experience for all-- even with their very different needs...Mom did not want to leave her house and now she couldn't be happier. When I need something I ask and I always get someone ready to help. The staff is loving and communicative. There is a much more vibrant social/activities life and my life with my parents has changed in such a positive way!

Sunrise on Connecticut is a premier assisted-living facility conveniently located in NW Washington. It is modern, attractively decorated and with a generous assortment of comfortable rooms. The cuisine is excellent, the activities profuse and varied and their medical facilities unexcelled for this type of facility. The administration and staff are friendly, helpful and professional. We are very comfortable here.

A family member entered Sunrise on Conn. Ave. from a hospital in urgent need of mental health care. In 2 months she walked out completely changed for the better and back to her old self. The care she got, the professional help available, the friends she made, all aided in her transition. Beth, Kathy, Rabiat, and a host of other staff members are to be commended for their professionalism and caring concern.

My mother is a current resident at Sunrise Connecticut Ave and we couldn’t be happier. The facilities are lovely and activities are stimulating and varied as well as geared to different levels of ability. Upon entering the building, you are struck by a sense of serenity and immediately forget that this is the middle of bustling DC.But the most outstanding aspect of this place is the amazing staff. All of the staff — nursing, physical and occupational therapy, care givers, housekeeping and maintenance, dining room, activities, and administrative — are kind, friendly, extremely capable, highly professional, respectful, patient, flexible, and most of all, caring and clearly happy and proud of their work. This is so rare in an industry infamous for its unpleasant and unfriendly staff. Mom says often that the staff really takes great care of her — certainly a first for us after experiencing other DC area facilities.We are very pleased to have found this place!Claire McCardell
