We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
Today is International Nurses Day! Observed around the world, this day falls during Nurses Week in the US and Canada, as well as during the month of May, commonly celebrated as Nurses Month. Why today? International Nurses Day coincides with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing and a personal hero of mine.
Today, U.S. News & World Report announced that 95 Sunrise communities were recognized as part of the publication’s Best Senior Living ratings for 2022-2023 in the categories of Best Independent Living, Best Assisted Living, and Best Memory Care.
At Sunrise, every day is an opportunity—to get active, learn something new, enjoy a favorite pastime or hobby, and spend time making connections with friends, neighbors, and loved ones. This is thanks to the incredible programs and events facilitated by our team members. So, as part of our continued 40th anniversary celebrations in May, we’re focusing on 40 years of fun with activities and programs.
It’s 5pm and you’ve just dressed in freshly laundered clothes. One final glance in the mirror to make sure your hair is just right, and you make your way to the elevator just across the hall from your apartment. You smile as your press the button thinking about the wonderful day you just had. It started with a quick read of the paper with a cup of coffee and a croissant from Balthazar’s, one of your favorite bakeries in Soho, followed by a walk-through Central Park with one of your old friends. You swear you can almost hear the quacks of ducklings and smell the spring blossoms as you exit the elevator on the second floor.
Earth Day is not new. In fact, we’ve been marking the day for more than 50 years with various campaigns and celebrations across the world. However, the holiday that was created to bring attention to the dangers of smog in cities has evolved into a much larger movement bringing forth the most pressing climate challenges that our societies and our planet face.
National Volunteer Week is here once again!
As you grow older, you may find yourself assume the role as the family caregiver. Initially, this role may involve small tasks like giving rides to and from appointments but has the potential to evolve into more as your loved one’s needs change. At the end of the day, most families just want to ensure that their older loved one is happy and healthy and safe. However, as that loved one’s circumstances change, caregivers may ask themselves: is this the best option?
For 40 years and counting, personalized, high-quality care delivered by one of the strongest teams in the industry remains a cornerstone of the Sunrise experience and lifestyle. The team understands that quality care involves much more than just supporting physical health – it can also include providing emotional support, focusing on mental well-being, and making personal connections and building friendships.
