We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
Sunrise is actively preparing for the distribution of the vaccine to residents and frontline team members as soon as December.
Senior living communities are vibrant homes where older adults can spend their days with lively companionship, socially engaging programming, nutritious dining, and the personalized care they need from trained, supportive team members. Just like so many other institutions and businesses, though, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused communities to make several changes to normal operations.
While the global COVID-19 pandemic has changed all our lives significantly, it has created a particularly challenging environment for our residents and the team members who care for them.
The COVID-19 pandemic is challenging for everyone, but it can be especially disruptive for seniors with dementia, who may be accustomed to routines, communicate in non-traditional ways, and face other challenges that are heightened during this unusual time.
As the global COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) pandemic evolves, we continue to focus on the health and well-being of our residents and team members.
In the days before the COVID-19 crisis, family members were a familiar sight at Sunrise communities across the country. Whether it was visiting, participating in activities, volunteering, or stopping by to pick up a loved one for lunch, families have always been an integral part of our residents’ daily lives. As have partnerships with local care agencies and vendors, including hospice.
To Our Sunrise Family:
COVID-19, the novel coronavirus, has driven people around the globe to practice social distancing in an effort to quell the disease’s spread. It’s hard for all of us to forego restaurants, movies, concerts, or just simple gatherings with friends. But this reality can be especially challenging for families who have a loved one living in a senior living community.
