If you’re thinking about living in a retirement residence but are unsure if you’re ready, ask yourself the following questions:
If you answered yes to many of these questions, you may be ready to look at Sunshine Ridge where your lifestyle will not be compromised.
Independent living can best be described as communal living, senior friendly housing option which provides supportive services such as meals, transportation, scheduled recreational activities and a variety of concierge services.
Sunshine Ridge was designed for active, self-sufficient, and autonomous seniors who want to live in a community with people their age who have similar interests. The main benefit of independent living communities is that they provide you (or your loved one) with a care-free, stress-free lifestyle that improves on some of the drawbacks of trying to remain in your own home.
Living at Sunshine Ridge leaves you in control of making the choices that are right for you. And with all of the “little things” like grocery shopping, cooking, cleaning, and maintaining the house taken care of, you have the time and energy to focus on enjoying your retirement. That’s the way it should be. It’s a rewarding and satisfying lifestyle characterized by friendship, belonging and genuine understanding.
After settling into living at Sunshine Ridge, our residents often wonder why they did not make the decision to move sooner. We often hear from our residents and their families how easy it is to make new and meaningful friendships, how helpful it is to have staff on-site to service housekeeping and maintenance needs, how luxurious it is to have lunch and dinner prepared by the culinary staff, and how enjoyable it is to participate in our many life enrichment programs.
In the heart of the community and close to many amenities, the location of Sunshine Ridge affords our residents the opportunity to enjoy their lives to the fullest. On-site, we have incredible dining facilities, a theatre, exercise room, spacious suites—Studio, 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom—and beautifully landscaped grounds. Our team looks forward to meeting you and answering any questions you may have.
“I like everything here! I love the atmosphere, staff and other residents are easy to get along with. Tracy (the General Manager) showed me a few rooms and I found one I really liked, so I signed the papers that day and have been living here since December 2015 and loving it.”
“I love the food, the variation of the food, I also like the choices that we have for meals. The staff do all they can to make you feel welcome and comfortable. There are many recreational programs that you can join in on. The location is ideal, so close to so many amenities and a short walk to the lake.”
“I have the freedom to come and go as I want. I like the idea you don’t have to cook, you come down and have a nice meal. I love the atmosphere here. I like the comradery with staff and the people who live here. The cleanliness is unbelievable.”
“My husband & I moved to Sunshine Ridge in 2012. I was very impressed with how clean and well laid out the rooms are - and we could bring our dog too! I love the suite and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. This year we celebrated my husband’s 90th and had about 35 family and friends come to Sunshine Ridge, some stayed in the spacious guest suites. We took over the Country Kitchen, decorated the patio and the staff came to wish him Happy Birthday. We feel we are part of a big family!”
“I have found things that really interest me, like the exercise programs, games, bus trips and many other things. I also joined the Art club here. I have never painted in my life! Now I have learned and it is such a satisfying feeling accomplishing something you never knew you could do. I also like the comradery at meals. If I sat in an apartment I would be having a cheese sandwich and here I have nourishing, delicious meals which is worth a lot!”
