Sunrise Senior Living  |  May 27, 2016

Our communities’ hand selected design and decorations provide residents with a sense of pride in their home, and visitors with a fresh perspective on what assisted living can look like. A number of our communities feature common areas that are tastefully decorated based upon the region’s history and culture. For example, a painting of the signature state flower and nearby lighthouse hang in Sunrise of Dix Hills’ grand foyer in New York. Nearby at Sunrise of Staten Island, paintings of oceans and signature lake views line the walls. In California, Sunrise of Burlingame’s foyer features a photo of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, while our Sunrise of Huntington Common, ME, community proudly displays a late resident artist’s work with plaques commemorating his work.

Focusing on artisan themes, our Design Team infuses the community’s local flavor into sitting rooms, lounges and entryways where possible. Paintings, drawings and sculptural pieces from local artists (or even residents!) are incorporated into the community’s decor, creating talking points for visitors and residents alike. By doing so, our hope is that our residents feel a more personal connection to their space and we find that many remark on seeing iconic pieces that take them back to times when they visited museums or landmarks with their families.

Sunrise’s Design Team keeps a pulse on the latest findings in senior design to better enhance community living for all of our residents, regardless of their care needs. Click here to learn more about our Design Team and meet the faces behind these innovative changes in our communities!
