We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
Many seniors in retirement decide to make a move to a senior living community so they can enjoy all of the benefits that go along with a maintenance-free lifestyle. If you are considering this change, one of the first decisions you’ll have to make is when to sell your house. It’s a question that potential residents often ask Sunrise team members for advice about when they visit.
Senior Dining Services Coordinator Cruz has worked in the food industry for more than 30 years. His passion for food and for sharing the food of his native Puerto Rico have been key tenets of his career and of his time at Sunrise. This month, Cruz celebrates his 10-year anniversary with the Sunrise family and wanted to share one of his favorite dishes with all of you in honor of that milestone and in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month
Apples, pumpkins, pears, cranberries, acorn squash, leeks, and brussels sprouts are just a few of the foods that reach their peak in the fall. And one thing they all have in common is their heart-health benefits. Pumpkin is high in potassium, fiber, and antioxidants which are all good for your heart. Apples and pears are linked to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
Assisted living communities are often considered to be an ideal combination of independence and support for older adults. Residents of assisted living communities appreciate the privacy that comes from having their own suite or apartment while also knowing that caregivers are always nearby when needed, and they also value the connections they can build with fellow residents through robust activity and event programs.
Dick and Lorraine are married residents at Sunrise of Grosse Pointe Woods in Michigan. Their smiling faces and names might be familiar because last month they both welcomed their 100th birthdays just a few days apart from each other, ushering them into the ranks of the Sunrise Centenarian Club.

No matter where you travel in the world, you’ll likely find grandparents playing a key role in the lives of their grandchildren. For many, the family’s eldest generation is a mainstay of support for the youngest one. As life expectancy in the United States and Canada increased and grandparents lived longer, a growing number of them have been able to provide hands-on support to their grandchildren. From childcare to transportation, you find grandparents helping to bridge the care gap families often experience when both parents work outside of the home.
We are proud to celebrate 40 years of first-class care alongside our dedicated team members and incredible residents and their families. As our 40th Anniversary celebration ends, we wanted to use this time to reflect on all the ways we’ve honored 40 years of Sunrise over the past 10 months.
