We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
Families who entrust the care of a loved one to a Sunrise Senior Living memory care community know firsthand how committed we are to each resident’s success. Our Reminiscence® neighborhoods utilize a person-centered approach that supports residents’ abilities and allows them to feel empowered and independent. It’s a standard of care that allows Sunrise to exceed industry standards in memory care and programming.
February is Black History Month in both the United States and Canada. The annual observance happens in February to coincide with the birthdays of President Abraham Lincoln, who issued the Emancipation Proclamation freeing enslaved people in 1863, and Black abolitionist and social reformer, Frederick Douglas. However, the celebration has a rich history that dates to the year 1926 and begins with a remarkable man named Dr. Carter G. Woodson.
Heart disease ranks as the leading cause of death for both men and women worldwide. Research shows that 1 in 4 deaths are linked to heart disease. But, experts say it doesn’t have to be this way. Many of the risk factors that lead to cardiac related illnesses can be controlled through lifestyle choices, especially a healthy diet.
When an aging parent’s health begins to decline, it can be difficult to figure out where to turn for help. The senior care industry has so many options for support it might be overwhelming. It's common for seniors and their adult children to waffle between enlisting the services of a home care agency or deciding to relocate to an assisted living community.

Retirement is a time of life most of us look forward to for many years. We envision relaxing days mixed with daily activities of our own choosing. But what happens a few months after you retire? Once you have had time to enjoy carefree days and are now seeking days with more purposeful activity?
When a senior loved one has Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, the impact on the entire family is significant. The disease is often referred to as “the long goodbye” because it slowly robs a person of their memory and independence, while families watch helplessly.

We’ve achieved this thanks to the hard work of our incredible, passionate team who live our mission, and by collecting, listening to, and adapting based on customer feedback - meeting their personal needs is what we are all about.
