Sunrise Live With Purpose Senior Activities

Legacy at Sunrise

With the Live With Legacy program, seniors share their wisdom and knowledge with others so that they can continue to “share it forward.”

Watch how Sunrise residents share knowledge and wisdom with younger generations through our Live With Legacy program.

Through these intergenerational programs, Sunrise residents share energy and experiences with other residents and with children and adults from different generations. Truly meaningful bonds are built over time when older adults spend time with children and are given the opportunity to share their experiences and knowledge

Both seniors and youths can benefit from the Live With Legacy program. A study by Generations United found that through youth mentoring and intergenerational programs, seniors , learned new technologies, increased emotional support and improved health, and spent more time socializing with others. In addition, youths experienced improved academic performance, enhanced social skills, less negative behavior and increased stability in terms of positive role models.

The Live With Purpose program promotes constant learning not only through the activities themselves, but also through the enriched learning obtained from those who participate and share from their experiences.” Sonia, Resident of Sunrise of East Cobb, GA
You certainly keep us busy and I am grateful for that! I was a children’s librarian and love that I can visit with them next door and read to them.” Diane, Resident of Sunrise of Columbia, MD

My mother-in-law was an elementary school teacher for 30+ years and was always active in her church and community.  Sunrise provides meaningful activities, such as gathering school supplies for children in need and giving residents the opportunity to be fully engaged in the process. It gives her dignity and reminds her of the many times she assisted children and their families during her career.” Shannon, Daughter-in-Law of Resident of Sunrise of Frisco, TX
