“The staff at Sun Valley Meadows from the cook, to management, and to the aides have been very caring and understanding. I enjoyed the many social events that SV planned. Most important are that my parents are happy and I am glad that we chose SV over the larger assistant living options.”

Joe G. (Son of Meadows resident)

“My mom has always been an independent woman. Moving her into assisted living was a challenge. She is extremely happy at Sun Valley. Mom was never into bingo until moving to Sun Valley and meeting all the other fun bingo players. She also enjoys the many other activities available at Sun Valley.”

Marty D. (Daughter of Sun Valley resident)

“When it became apparent that one of our family members required assisted living to improve their quality of life we held a family counsel. First on our list of concerns were the qualifications of the provider, the state of cleanliness of the home, the medical attention provided and the reputation in the community. Our second concern was the cost factor and the likelihood that rising costs would not overcome the ability of the family to meet those costs. The third factor was the proximity of the home to family members and the ability of the family to see our loved one any time within reason. Needless to say, Sun Valley met all of those requirements with many pluses. We all have been pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to assist our family member at any time regardless of the difficulty involved.

. . . [Rooms] are cleaned regularly, linens are changed to ensure good sanitation, and there is a general spirit of satisfaction and order with the ‘institutional’ feeling.

The final accolade may well be one delivered by our loved on just before Christmas when they said that other being in their own home they could not imagine a better place to be. The family agrees and is very thankful that this is so.”

Chuck B. (Son of Sun Valley resident)

“Each one of you were always very kind and helpful to us when we were there to visit. Since I wasn’t able to care for his needs at home – Ridge was the very best of anywhere he was cared for.”

Ruby B., Mt. Airy

“I have only the highest praise for the management, staff, accommodations and care that my mother has received as a resident of Sun Valley Assisted Living for nearly 3 years now. Sun Valley offers a unique blend of structure and flexibility that meets our family needs. The atmosphere is home-like and cheerful, with bright, airy rooms, nutritious meals, and a caring staff that encourages my mother to live her best life every day. The superb activities staff provides mentally-stimulating and fun things for the residents to do, so that watching TV is an option, not a necessity. The weekly hair salon and Sunday Worship services allow my mother to continue participating in events that she has valued all her life. I am truly grateful that Mother and I have found the perfect atmosphere for her sunset years. I have great peace of mind knowing that she is monitored 24/7, cared for and has become a valued member of the Sun Valley community.”

Jennifer S., Mt. Airy

“Tenderness, Attention, Caring and Quality, this is what my uncle experienced at Homestead. I have only words of praise and a thankful heart for the Homestead facility, its staff and their commitment to the elderly. It impacted the quality of life my uncle had in his final days. I will always be grateful!”
