Customer Reviews

Facilities are good -- recently redecorated. Even has an ice cream shop! Staff very friendly. Food smelled delicious. Has memory care unit on one floor.

Appeared somewhat run down. Seems like there are staffing issues as well. Did not appear to be maintained as well, and there were several vacancies.

Going Through A Transition

They went through an ownership transition during our 1st 6 months and things have not gone as smoothly as we would have liked. Mom needed in room food service which was an extra (very nice) but very inconsistent

Many opportunities for improvement

My mother was cared for during the day but at night she frequently sat on the commode for over 45 minutes before getting assistance. That is unacceptable. We were charged for a new carpet after she passed; no one informed us of this cost of $700 nor did I ever get an invoice even though I asked for one. There were other issues ie, staff ‘forgot’ to take her for her doc appointment. I was told laundry was included however that meant sheets only. For the high cost, I expected stellar service.

Since Buckford has taken over we feel the care has not been as good. They said they were making no changes but they have including having the family providingcertain necessities. This is difficult for some spouses. Cleanliness of patients and facility have also gone downhill. We have mentioned several things several time but have seen no changes in our case. Not impressed so far

Our family can’t say enough wonderful things about [name removed] and [name removed] of Scioto. During our tour, [name removed] did an amazing job of educating us about the world of senior living and made us feel very comfortable that they are equipped to take great care of their residents throughout the course of their lives. This facility is very warm and inviting with a really nice homey feel. I would recommend that anyone looking for assisted living in the area adds this facility to their list of places to visit.

Very nice facility; could use some updating which is already scheduled. [Name removed] was very informative and helpful. Location may not suit our family location.

Nice tour

The staff here did a very nice job with my tour here, they took their time showing me around and they answered all my questions. This is a nice community but I just didn't think it was the right fit for my husband.

The best we could fine

The staff are very caring and they want what is best for the residents. They listen to the resident to make sure they are getting everything they need. They are great with keeping us updated on our loved ones care. My loved one is comfortable here and he has made friends. This community offers continuing care. They have a couple nice outside areas to sit as well as a grill. They offer a variety of food options and there are always different things going on. We feel secure with our love one living here.

Care and options

I toured this community for care for my mom. The staff was able to answer my questions. The community did not have the feeling that I was looking for. The menu was appealing and the list of activities would have been offered were healthy. They had activities. We would suggest that other families tour this community for good care

My brother has started to settle in

I am so pleased with the care that my brother is getting here, the staff and management have gone above and beyond with helping me in getting my brother settled in. They have been encouraging him to join in the activities and if he is not feeling up to going to the dining room to eat they make sure they bring him his food. They are very good at keeping me updated on my brother as well.
I would definitely recommend this community.

A community with care

The staff here are very nice and very helpful to my needs. I have activities that I enjoy.with the other residents. The food is needing some improvements due to cooking casserole meals. The staff does everything they can and there is always something to do and they take our trips outside of the community. I would recommend this community to others looking for a good envirmemt. The meals need some small improvements, but overall I like the enviroment.

Good Experience, Friendly Staff

My tour of this community was a nice one. The staff was friendly to my family, and myself. The experience went well. The community looked good, everything was nice, and clean. My tour went well, but unfortunately I found other community that suited our needs better.

Needs some improvements

My son had taken a tour of this community for myself and was not very impressed with what he had seen. There was very few amenities and for the price he did not see the worth of a dollar.

An ok community!!

The staff were helpful and answered our questions when we moved in. I do think they are a little under staffed. The food is good and the community is clean. They do not offer a lot of activities. I would recommend this community.

Nice place overall, quality of the food is inconsistent

Overall I think they do a good job at Sunrise. It's a nice looking place, and the staff is friendly and professional. My one comment would be that the quality of the food can be very inconsistent.

Friendly, welcoming staff

Sunrise on the Scioto is a very nice place, I really think they do a splendid job here! The facility is clean and well kept, and the people are very friendly! The caregivers here are attentive, and really go out of their way to make the residents feel like this is their home.


I toured this community while looking into senior living options for a friend. I thought it seemed like a nice place. They did not have any openings at the time of my tour, but everyone was very friendly and the facility was attractive and clean. They are worth a look if you're looking for senior living options in the area.

Not ok!!

My poor grandma is like a prisoner on the 2nd floor of their dark, dingy, urine-stench-filled Memory Care unit. They try to tell us that she goes down for activities but they're lying. Every time we visit (frequent and various days & times) she is always just sitting in a chair and staring. Not interacted with or stimulated at all. Not at all what was promised to us. And the smell is just horrid!!!! Sometimes it literally takes your breath away. I feel so bad for her that she is stuck there!! :(

Nice looking place!

I think they are doing a fine job.

I think they are doing a fine job. The food is so-so, sometimes he likes it sometimes he doesn't, he loves breakfast the most, and he can always order something else if he doesn't like it. They are really nice, and have nothing but kind to him.

Review of Sunrise on the Scioto Alzheimer's / Memory Care in Upper Arlington, OH

Beautiful! And a smaller size that I like. It appears that each floor has its own dining and social area. They said that other floors can access main floor, but I don't see dad doing that often. Downside? They do not take medicaid so when he runs out of money, we'd have to move him again somewhere else. Very friendly and family feel.

So far it's going pretty well.

At this point they are using a lot of agency staff, the permanent staff is very friendly. I think they have a pretty good variety of activities. It seems like they always happen when she is napping, having a variety of times they happen would be nice. Their food is okay, they give choices, there aren't a lot of choices, but there are a few choices. They try to accommodate the dining room is nice. It's not cafeteria style, it's a lot more elegant, almost restaurant like. Nice table settings. Right now they don't have a maintenance person.

It was lovely, I really liked it. The view was beautiful.

It was lovely, I really liked it. The view was beautiful. You can sit in the dining room and look across the river. It was a little more expensive, and a little too far for us.

Got a sales pitch

I didn't like it because he was trying to sell me on it, he wasn't showing it to me. He was telling me what all the other places would tell me and what was wrong with them. He was just trying to sell me, it looked too confining to me. In fact, the memory care I think was on the thrid floor and there was no way the residents could get fresh air.

Was just too small

It was too small, it wasn't as spacious as Emeritus. That was probably the thing for us, my wife loves to eat out and it wasn't like a restaurant, it was just too small. The director followed up with me the most, he kept calling and when I told him I had made my decision he congratulated me on it.

Melissa was wonderful and o...

Melissa was wonderful and offered so much information. Sunrise is just a bit out of my aunt's price range at this time and I was most concerned about what would happen when the funds are gone. If cost wasn't an issue, I would ask for a room for my aunt today !

Very nice place, but requir...

Very nice place, but requires too much money.

Turned Off by the Whole Place

I thought that was the worst place that we looked at. I found out later that they're not even medicaid eligable. If you run out of money they ship the person out again. When I brought that up to the sales guy he just said, well, we'll find them a nice place. I thought he was just overbearing. I was really turned off by the whole place. I thought it needed updating and I didn't see people enjoying any activities while I was there.

Not A Good Experience

There is not enough staff for the care that I need. I'm paralyzed on my right side so I need help getting to the bathroom. I have to schedule when I need to brush my teeth and go to the bathroom because they have to make sure there is someone here to help me.

I don't have a roll in shower and they promised me I would get a roll in shower. I had to purchase my own lift because they only have one in the whole building.

It hasn't been a good experience. I'm moving out soon.
