Is It Time For Senior Living?
Senior living is designed for older adults who value their independence, but need some support with daily activities. There are many types of senior living communities to accommodate varying levels of care needs and lifestyle preferences.
Retirement communities (similar to Sunrise independent living communities) offer private living quarters, and provide help with household chores, cooking, care coordination, and transportation if the resident so desires. Sunrise assisted living communities also provide support for day-to-day activities, as well as a 24-hour care team, a schedule of events from which residents can choose each day, and a complete dining program.
Deciding the time is right for senior living for yourself or your loved one is a highly personal decision, based on many factors specific to your family.
If you answer yes to one or more of the questions below, it may be time to consider senior living. To find a Sunrise near you, visit our community location page.
