More About Sunrise Retirement Community
At Sunrise Retirement, we’re proud of our resident-centered care philosophy. It’s an approach that zeroes in on individual needs and ensures “freedom of choice” for our residents. We urge residents to enjoy more independence, privacy, and flexibility in their daily lives – and we provide each resident with what works best for him or her. With a large variety of living options, independent living through end of life care, residents have the opportunity to transition to higher levels of care on campus with priority admission. Sunrise Retirement Community is the only community-based not-for-profit retirement community in Sioux City, located on the growing East side of town, our 35-acre campus provides easy access to shopping, restaurants, banking, and hospitals.
The story of Sunrise began with a cornerstone ceremony held in fall of 1960. Known then as the Martin Luther Home, we were a nonprofit organization founded to provide “specialized housing” to seniors and physically challenged individuals. Business and church leaders sought community-wide support – receiving especially strong backing from the area’s Lutheran churches. These visionaries established Sunrise on a sprawling hill with room to grow. And grow it did! Senior nursing care was soon added, and the facility was renamed Sunrise Manor.
Over the years, services steadily expanded. Sunrise Manor strategically evolved into Sunrise Retirement Community – a nonprofit, comprehensive residential living community that provided a variety of senior living choices for members of the Siouxland community. The independent cottages of Sunrise Hills were built. Assisted living options were introduced. Innovative memory care centers were introduced, as Sunrise was a pioneer in memory care. Single homes were developed. Most recently, Sunrise unveiled The Pointe at Sunrise – a 62-home apartment neighborhood that is the first of its kind in eastern Sioux City.
On June 28, 2012, Sunrise moved their residents and belongings into a new state-of-the-art health center for nursing and assisted living, replacing the old “Manor” which served Siouxland seniors for over 50 years.
