Sun Valley Lodge Celebrates Three Years of Assisted Living
Sun City, Arizona – September 14, 2007– Sun Valley Lodge celebrated its third anniversary of providing assisted living services this week. The event coincided with National Assisted Living Week.
Sun Valley Lodge was the first retirement community in Sun City and has provided independent retirement living and skilled nursing since 1965. On September 13, 2004 the Lodge began offering additional services to residents. The assisted living program includes such services as medication assistance, dining escorts, and personal care.
“We wanted our residents to be able to age in place,” explained Residents Services Director Marcia Gunnell. “We wanted to be able to add services as they were needed so residents did not have to move when they needed more care. We decided that we are better able to serve the community by offering a continuum of retirement care.”
Today approximately half of the Lodge’s residents are on an assisted living plan.
