Understanding Care Services at Sunset Senior Living

Sunset Senior Living is more than a nursing home.

It’s a community.

The services provided by an experienced, caring staff and enjoyed by residents and their families range from palliative care to religious services, from coffee circles to music hours, from pet visits to beauty salon trips.

The goal of Sunset Senior Living is for its residents to enjoy as normal a life as possible while receiving optimal care.

Here is a look at some of the services provided:

Therapy Services

Sunset Senior Living’s specialized Short-Term Rehab Facility is committed to swiftly aiding in your recovery, restoring your strength, and facilitating your return to beloved activities. In collaboration with ONR, Inc., we provide a comprehensive array of long and intensive short-term rehabilitative therapies, encompassing physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, and restorative care.

In-patient rehabilitation can make life much easier. As you go through the recovery process, travel and daily functions can be dangerous. We help reduce risk with tailored rehab services specific to each individual’s needs in a residential setting where you can be comfortable and safe with the help of our certified rehab team.

Respite Services

As life expectancy continues to increase, many of us encounter the need for assistance as we age. Our programs provide seniors with the opportunity to socialize with peers while receiving essential care services. Simultaneously, these programs offer caregivers a valuable respite to tend to personal tasks or simply unwind and recharge, all with the reassurance that their loved one is well cared for in their absence.

Hospice and Palliative Care

Sunset Home offers a diverse range of certified hospice programs, ensuring that our residents have options tailored to their preferences. Additionally, we provide in-house comfort care and palliative care services for individuals who are not enrolled in a hospice program.

Hospice and palliative care prioritize enhancing the quality of life during the end-of-life phase. Our dedicated team of trained professionals and volunteers takes a holistic approach, addressing the emotional, social, spiritual, and physical needs of patients and their families. With compassion and support, we aim to provide comprehensive end-of-life care that is respectful, empathetic, and tailored to meet individual needs.

Restorative nursing care

Restorative nursing programs aim to enhance residents’ independence and safety by actively promoting optimal physical, mental, and psychosocial function. These programs are typically initiated after residents are discharged from formalized physical, occupational, or speech rehabilitation therapy services. The primary goals are to increase residents’ independence, ensure their safety, preserve their function, boost their self-esteem, promote ongoing improvement, and minimize deterioration.

We take the quality of life of our residents very seriously. Trust Sunset Senior Living to provide you or your loved one with an enjoyable, comfortable stay. Apply for admissions, call 217-223-2636, or contact us here to learn more about our care options.
