About Sunrise Retirement Community

The year 2012 was an exciting one at Sunrise Retirement Community. We opened our new $14 million, state-of-the-art Health Center for skilled nursing care, assisted living and assisted living memory care. Based on a neighborhood delivery system, each neighborhood has its own residential kitchen and dining area, great room, fireplace and adjacent gardens. Residents enjoy their private room, each with a full bath and shower and a wireless call system for assistance. The health center features a beautiful indoor park - complete with floor to ceiling windows overlooking a courtyard with a beautiful fountain and wheelchair swing.

Adjacent to the indoor park is the chapel/community life center. Our new health center is an investment in the community, and it renews our mission to serve seniors for generations to come.

Sunrise is Siouxland’s only community based, not-for-profit retirement governed by a local volunteer board of directors. Sunrise has been leading the way in senior care for over 50 years.

The Pointe at Sunrise, our new independent living community for seniors, is a recent addition to our 35-acre campus. We are pleased to welcome new residents to this special new home. We encourage you to learn more about our many communities that make Sunrise special.

Our Mission
Caring deeply. Connecting daily. Leading boldly. Serving faithfully.

Our Vision
Forward-thinking and person-centered, Sunrise Retirement Community will be recognized as Siouxland’s highest quality, most active and comprehensive senior living community of choice.

Philosophy of Care
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. Essentially, it means strive to be more inviting (and less institutional) in today’s world of senior care. 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.

Sunrise has also embraced the Eden approach, which connects residents with children, pets, and green space to enhance their quality of life.

Not-For-Profit Organization
As a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, we continually invest our resources and any annual revenue back into care and services for our residents. Sunrise Retirement is funded through Medicare and Medicaid, third party sources, and private payment. We also welcome monetary and volunteer contributions from those interested in supporting Sunrise.

Nondiscrimination Statement
With regard to admission, participation, or employment practices, Sunrise Retirement Community does not exclude, deny benefits to, or otherwise discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, or age.

Ask The Nurse; What are my rights as an elderly person?

The elderly have certain rights and protections under the law. The nursing home must list and give all new residents a copy of these rights.

These resident rights include, but are not limited to:

  • The right to be treated with dignity and respect.
  • The right to be informed in writing about services and fees before you enter the nursing home.
  • The right to manage your own money or to choose someone else you trust to do this for you.
  • The right to privacy, and to keep and use your personal belongings and property as long as it doesn’t interfere with the rights, health, or safety of others.
  • The right to be informed about your medical condition, medications and to see your own doctor. You also have the right to refuse medications and treatments.
  • The right to have a choice over your schedule (for example, when you get up and go to sleep), your activities and other preferences that are important to you.
  • The right to an environment more like a home that maximizes your comfort and provides you with assistance to be as independent as possible.

Wellness With You In Mind

Wellness is a lifestyle in our community. We have found a clear link between healthy aging and the proactive pursuit of wellness. We believe that our residents should be engaged not only physically, but intellectually, emotionally, socially, and spiritually as well. Every resident deserves the opportunity to improve their overall well-being. That’s why we offer EnerG by Aegis wellness programs.

EnerG by Aegis is an innovative series of wellness programs developed by Aegis Therapies to educate and inspire individuals to move through life. Based on a multi-dimensional model of wellness, EnerG programs support the factors that impact patient health on a daily basis.

The EnerG Wellness Programs take a purposeful approach to enhancing the health and happiness of our residents, helping them reach their highest potential. Each class is modified to match the level of care of the participants, ensuring that our residents are participating in a safe and effective manner. With 21 weekly wellness opportunities, we continually strive to provide residents with the tools and resources they need to improve or maintain their overall well-being.
