We’re expanding operations and welcoming brighter days.
When a family elder needs more help or has been diagnosed with a chronic illness, loved ones often debate which senior care option is best. For some, working with a home care agency seems like the best solution. Other families believe the intermittent needs of their loved one are best met by moving to an assisted living community.
When a senior loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia, creating a care plan that meets their current and future needs, is an important step. Primary care doctors typically recommend families explore local home care agencies and memory care programs before a crisis occurs so they are not forced to do so under stress.
The last year was a tough one for everyone. Many traditional summer activities were sacrificed in an attempt to prevent the further spread of COVID-19. As things gradually return to normal, many people are planning to enjoy outdoor activities again this summer. Outside gatherings are a good option for safely spending time with friends and family members.
In April, Sunrise Senior Living welcomed Jack R. Callison, Jr. as the new Chief Executive Officer. Over the past few months, Jack has immersed himself in Sunrise communities and culture while on an initial listening tour across the United States. Below are his thoughts following that visit.
When you are the caregiver for a family member who has Alzheimer’s or another type of dementia, one goal you might have is to help them feel productive and empowered. As the disease robs people of their abilities, it can be a challenge for loved ones to find ways to protect their self-esteem.
July is typically one of the hottest months of the summer in many areas of the country. While most people enjoy outdoor activities, such as picnicking, family parties, swimming, and gardening, it’s important to do so wisely. And to be aware that the risk for dehydration increases on hot and humid days, especially for older adults.
A message from Michelle Minor, Vice President of Engagement and Program Services, about the "new normal" for Sunrise programming, events, and activities as we welcome Brighter Days.
We are excited to share that Sunrise has been certified as Great Place to Work®! Great Place to Work®, an independent research and consulting firm, awarded this certification based on results from the Great Place to Work survey, which hundreds of U.S. Sunrise team members completed this April. The survey asked about more than 60 elements of the team member experience, including pride in Sunrise’s community impact, belief that your work makes a difference, and feeling your work has special meaning.
