We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
We are proud to celebrate 40 years of first-class care alongside our dedicated team members and incredible residents and their families. As our 40th Anniversary celebration ends, we wanted to use this time to reflect on all the ways we’ve honored 40 years of Sunrise over the past 10 months.
Celebrating Sunrise’s 40th Anniversary has instilled confidence in an even brighter future. As we continue celebrate this incredible milestone, we want to look ahead to what the next 40 years hold for Sunrise.
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.

June is Alzheimer’s and Brain Awareness Month—a time to raise awareness about brain health and the prevalence of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. This year, Sunrise celebrates 40 years of personalized, high-quality care delivered by one of the strongest teams in the industry. This is especially true when it comes to our Memory Care services and offerings. Our dedicated Memory Care team works tirelessly to create a safe and stimulating environment for those with dementia—including its most common form, Alzheimer’s.
At Sunrise, every day is an opportunity—to get active, learn something new, enjoy a favorite pastime or hobby, and spend time making connections with friends, neighbors, and loved ones. This is thanks to the incredible programs and events facilitated by our team members. So, as part of our continued 40th anniversary celebrations in May, we’re focusing on 40 years of fun with activities and programs.
For 40 years and counting, personalized, high-quality care delivered by one of the strongest teams in the industry remains a cornerstone of the Sunrise experience and lifestyle. The team understands that quality care involves much more than just supporting physical health – it can also include providing emotional support, focusing on mental well-being, and making personal connections and building friendships.
