Details:

Staff is more concerned with doing what's easiest for them and not what's right for the residents. Some aides are physically incapable of assisting residents with mobility issues, some are rude and uncaring, and some simply lazy (at least one was seen sleeping on the job). Physical therapy room is small and they crowd too many patients in at once, limiting the help and attention each person can get. Basic supplies often run out, requiring residents' families to provide basic needs like Kleenex and toilet paper. Plumbing and electrical problems are common in the building. Not the best choice for nursing care or rehab in the Syracuse area.

Details:

Sunnyside Care Center's building is in need of complete renovation. Rooms baseboards lying on floor, mold and walls need painting.Bathrooms need updating as well as floors, rooms, closets. Landscaping is dismal and gazebo is being repaired rather than razed and properly built for resident use. Staff does quite well even though there is a need for more aides. Food is abysmal. Tasteless, uninteresting,not well served or prepared. Fresh fruits and vegetables are non-existent even though we live in a wonderful area for these fresh foods. Why bibs for these adults? Large, paper(good quality) napkins might do well. Dining room new curtains and paint very much appreciated. Improvement could continue with removal of wreaths and other wall decor that no longer suits the color scheme. Ambiance is so crucial to people, cheers the soul. How about small table centerpieces? Fresh flowers?
