We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
“I cook food that makes you feel like you’re getting a hug from mom,” Chef Daisy says with a smile that automatically puts you at ease. Her face is adorned with thick, plastic glasses and framed with red bandana tied tightly around her hair to keep it in place while she cooks. Her presence is maternal, but you also know she is not to be messed with, especially in the kitchen. As the Director of Dining Services at the newly-opened Sunrise of New Dorp on Staten Island, she has to mean business. The assisted living and memory care community recently welcomed its first residents this month which means Chef Daisy Martinez is about to be a very busy woman.
Today announced the name of its second luxury senior lifestyle community in New York City: The Apsley.
Leslie Henry joined Sunrise of Granite Run in Media, Pennsylvania nearly eight years ago after her mother’s passing inspired her to go back to school to earn another Bachelor’s degree.
Celebrating Sunrise’s 40th Anniversary has instilled confidence in an even brighter future. As we continue celebrate this incredible milestone, we want to look ahead to what the next 40 years hold for Sunrise.
Design is all around us. From the clothes we wear, to the cars we drive and even the phones that seem to be forever glued to our hands. When it comes to senior living, design is at the forefront of everything, especially our built environments. This is not only to make sure the spaces are beautiful and feel like home, but that they ensure the safety and comfort of our residents, no matter their lifestyle. So, what does it mean to design for senior living and how do we turn our communities into a home? We went to the experts, the Sunrise Design Team, to find out.
At Sunrise Senior Living communities, our chefs and dining services staff buy seasonal, local produce as much as possible. Every month, residents find 65 or more different types of fruits and vegetables on the menu. It’s all part of our commitment to resident health and wellness.
For the last 40 years, Sunrise has become known for providing high-quality care and lifestyle offerings to our residents and their families at our more than 270 communities across the U.S. and Canada. However, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that you may not have insight into, especially when it comes to the development of one of our new communities. One crucial part of that process is visualizing what the community will look and how it will fit into its surrounding environment in a way that standard blueprints don’t.
Today, we proudly announce the opening of our second and newest community on Staten Island, Sunrise of New Dorp.
