Sunrise of Willowbrook, an award-winning senior living community in Willowbrook, Illinois, exudes the feeling of a wonderful Victorian bed and breakfast. Featuring all the amenities of fine living provided in a caring, family-friendly environment, our home outshines other assisted living communities in the area. We boast lovely dining areas, excellent dining (headed by our dining services coordinator, Ernie, and his team), beautifully maintained grounds, and of course, our friendly house dog, Gunther. We’re very proud of the longevity of our team, led by executive director Leigh Morehead for over 14 years, who was recently honored with Sunrise’s Excellence in Leadership Award. Several team members have received the national Joy in Service Award for Sunrise employees who exemplify great customer service for our residents. More than half of our caring and warm Designated Care Managers have served our residents for 8 years or more, helping our residents experience the joy of every day.
Our vibrant activities program is diverse and enriches the mind, body and spirit, and we encourage and support participation from all of our residents, regardless of their physical challenges. We offer daily exercise opportunities like Zumba and yoga, house socials in the Bistro and a host of other activities to stimulate the mind, body and spirit: art classes, theatre and casino outings, worship services and brain games, just to name a few. For those that enjoy getting out and about, we offer lunch outings to local favorite restaurants, trips to outdoor destinations like the Morton Arboretum, fall foliage tours, and our festive Christmas lights tour with cocoa and caroling. Families are always welcome and encouraged to participate in life at our community; enjoy our regular family events and numerous holiday parties such as Mother’s and Father’s Day Brunches, summer family barbecues, and our beautiful monthly family buffet-style brunches and celebrations.
Our coordinator team prides itself in supporting our residents and their families, and strives to always be accessible, responsive and helpful. Every member of our team knows our residents personally, and knows the preferences, interests, and hobbies of each resident so that we can help create a special day, every day. Area professionals refer their patients to Sunrise of Willowbrook for quality senior living because they understand the critical differences in care that we provide.
