The living environment at Sunshine Village fosters the feeling of being safe at home. This environment significantly enhances the quality of life of the individual in need of memory care. Each of our seven ranch style homes is connected with a winding, circular walking path landscaped with lush green grass, shaded areas, and accented with desert plants and raised gardening beds planted with the season's best annuals and perennials. Residents are encouraged to stroll the environment for the benefits of fresh air and exercise without the worry of wandering outside of the safety and security of the premises.
Daily life includes activities that engage fine motor skills and high cognitive stimulation through social interaction, games, exercise, relaxation and leisure. Each residential cottage is clustered according to similar abilities. Sunshine Village plans the activities of each group geared towards their particular needs, interests, and abilities.
