We’re expanding operations and welcoming brighter days.
February is National Heart Month. Each year organizations like the National Heart Association and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) dedicate the month to sharing resources and tools. It’s an opportunity to help people learn more about cardiac diseases, including controllable risk factors.
Since the COVID-19 crisis began, many families have learned how to master video chat platforms as a means of staying connected. Schools and universities routinely use Zoom and Skype to conduct classes. Most physician offices now offer telehealth visits with insurance companies covering the expenses. These interactions are as close to face-to-face gatherings as is possible.
A Note from Laurie Pack, Chief Human Resources Officer, regarding the significant contributions of Black Americans - both within Sunrise communities and across the country.
Often times the search for a senior living community can leave older adults and their families confused about what they really want and need. An independent living community, where the focus is on social activities and a hassle-free lifestyle, may be the ideal choice for an active senior. But a senior who needs a helping hand with daily activities, such as bathing or medication management, might find an assisted living community best meets their needs.

The annual awards program marks the achievements and service of extraordinary people across the United Kingdom.
As the COVID-19 pandemic keeps most older adults sheltering in place to stay safe, video chat platforms have become a popular way of communicating. Grandparents are reading bedtime stories to grandchildren even though they live across town. Schools and universities are utilizing programs like Zoom to teach. Insurance companies and health professionals are promoting virtual visits as a safe way to monitor a patient’s well-being.
