ASSISTED LIVING

For those seniors who are no longer able to safely and easily live independently.

ABOUT OUR BUILDING

Sunnymere looks like a ‘home’.  It was built like a ‘sorority’ house where everyone has a private room and eats meals together in the dining room.  These rooms are not considered apartments.  There are no kitchens in any of the rooms. 

Years ago, most people lived in a home or apartment with one bathroom.  The family ‘shared’ that bathroom!  It wasn’t until the 60’s, that ‘master bedrooms’ were created with their own private bath. When they designed Sunnymere in the 1930’s, they wanted to save money on plumbing, but didn’t want it to be like a ‘dormitory’ where the bathrooms were all down the hall. They felt that two residents could share a bathroom. Hence, they created a shared half bath for every two rooms.  Every room has their own sink and every two rooms share a toilet.  Showers are a few steps down each hall. 

 

Sunnymere is there to provide the care your folks need so YOUR time with Mom or Dad, can be, as it should be, relaxed and stress-free.
