We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
Design is all around us. From the clothes we wear, to the cars we drive and even the phones that seem to be forever glued to our hands. When it comes to senior living, design is at the forefront of everything, especially our built environments. This is not only to make sure the spaces are beautiful and feel like home, but that they ensure the safety and comfort of our residents, no matter their lifestyle. So, what does it mean to design for senior living and how do we turn our communities into a home? We went to the experts, the Sunrise Design Team, to find out.
At Sunrise Senior Living communities, our chefs and dining services staff buy seasonal, local produce as much as possible. Every month, residents find 65 or more different types of fruits and vegetables on the menu. It’s all part of our commitment to resident health and wellness.
For the last 40 years, Sunrise has become known for providing high-quality care and lifestyle offerings to our residents and their families at our more than 270 communities across the U.S. and Canada. However, there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes that you may not have insight into, especially when it comes to the development of one of our new communities. One crucial part of that process is visualizing what the community will look and how it will fit into its surrounding environment in a way that standard blueprints don’t.
Today, we proudly announce the opening of our second and newest community on Staten Island, Sunrise of New Dorp.
Engaging in regular fitness activities is essential for healthy aging. Experts say people should create weekly routines that incorporate a combination of stretching, strength training, and aerobic exercises. One form of fitness that combines all three of those is aqua therapy.
We are proud to celebrate Sunrise’s growth and development during the last 40 years. After learning from experiences with their own family members, Paul and Terry Klaassen founded Sunrise with a vision to create warm and inviting homes that broke the norm from the cold, sterile environments of long-term care facilities at the time. The foundation they set with our first community still informs the top-of-the-line senior living services Sunrise offers today to the thousands of residents living in our 270+ communities across the U.S. and Canada.
At certain places in our lives, talking about the future can be incredibly exciting. We imagine the adventures we’ll have, the home we’ll live in, the partner we may meet and the kids we might be lucky enough to raise. However, as we get older, thinking about the future can become a little less exciting and a bit more overwhelming for both the individual and their loved ones.
