September – 2018

From the Desk of the Administrator

September 9th thru the 15th is National Assisted Living Week.  As you all know Sunrise Villa is a licensed Assisted Living Facility.  Assisted Living Facilities offer a great alternative to Seniors who need some assistance with their daily activities but do not need nursing home placement.  These facilities offer an independent lifestyle with assistance tailored to their needs.  Most facilities provide assistance with things like meals, dressing, bathing, help with medication, transportation and personal mobility.  Most assisted living communities like ours provide housekeeping, access to health services, personal laundry service, and social and recreational activities as well.  Most communities offer peace of mind to their tenants knowing that they are safe and secure with little worries.

According to the National Center for Assisted Living there are more than 28,000 assisted living residences across the country that more than one million people call home.  If you know a loved one who may be interested in learning more about Sunrise Villa send them our way.  We are always happy to provide tours and sit down with folks and tell them about our facility.

For those residents who have bird feeders, please be advised that you may find the pole moved slightly more towards the edge of the grass and rock.  We have had some real challenges with the bird seed getting into the rocks and sprouting.  Not a big concern and we are just trying to control spread.

Thank you all.
