We’re expanding operations and welcoming brighter days.
If you or an older adult in your family is preparing to move to a senior living community, you might feel a little uncertain about which staff member can provide answers to the various questions you have. This is true before you move, as well as after. It’s easy to confuse the different roles people play in a community designed for senior care.
When a senior in your family has Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, finding ways to safely provide them with the quality of life they deserve can be challenging. Memory loss, for example, might leave you struggling to come up with meaningful activities for them to enjoy throughout the day. Decreased verbal skills can cause you to worry if you are meeting their physical and emotional needs.
A message from Jack R. Callison, Jr., Chief Executive Officer, on the important role that diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) have in Sunrise’s culture.
After more than a year of challenges, changes, and disruptions to our daily lives, we’re thrilled to welcome brighter days at our communities! Sunrise has recently rolled out new operating guidelines, compliant with the latest guidelines, that will allow for more activities and in-person visits, which we know our residents and families have longed for.
Around the world, countries embrace Pride month during June to bring awareness to the LGBTQ+ community. While we celebrate the future of equality for our LGBTQ+ loved ones, learning about the history of this community holds a strong impact for change as well. We’ll take a look at some of the major events, particular language, history, and the commitment Sunrise has to supporting residents, family members, and team members who identify as LGBTQ+.
Where you live matters as you grow older. While the majority of older adults say they’d like to remain in their own homes, few houses were designed with senior safety in mind. A 2017 Harvard University study found that only 1 percent of American homes were equipped with basic universal design features that make a home accessible and senior-friendly.
When families begin the search for senior care, how to pay for it is a concern that can come up quickly for many. Private funds typically cover a large percentage of the costs, but there are many other financing options that can assist. The list includes a unique program known as the Aid and Attendance Benefit.
Art makes the world better. From the enjoyment that comes from looking at a watercolor painting to creating your own work of art, creativity has a variety of health benefits. Research also shows that engaging in the creative arts improves the lives of adults with dementia.
