Creating a neighbourhood inside a community
Each floor and key resident room area receives a name that resonates with our residents. This assists them in finding their way back to their suites and makes each area of the building its own “neighbourhood.” A warm and welcoming neighbourhood feeling creates a foundation for friendship and a sense of belonging.
Some neighbourhoods are created for specialized care models, such as memory care. We do our best to ensure that our residents are living and enjoying life, in the best possible setting, designed for their needs.

Convenient and centrally located administration offices with additional support on each floor at the communication centres in each neighbourhood.

Adult day program
Enriching the lives of seniors living at home
We all benefit greatly from staying active, being intellectually stimulated and socially connected. AgeCare Sunrise Garden’s Adult Day Support Program provides health, social and recreational support for seniors and needed respite for caregivers.
The day program has really taken a lot of stress off my mind. My mom really wants to stay in her home and wants her independence, but without the day program she doesn’t go out unless we take her, and she has very little interaction with others.
Our adult day program offers:
- A holistic approach to encompass the needs of the client, family, and caregivers
- Recreation and socialization programs such as trivia, word games, reminiscing, crafts, movies, music, baking, current events discussions, board and card games
- Educational programs for you and your family
- Hairdressing, by appointment
- Nutritious lunch and snacks prepared by professional food services staff under the guidance of a registered dietitian
- Medication assistance

Children and seniors informing and enriching each other
Unique to AgeCare Sunrise Gardens is our inter-generational Grandfriends program, which brings residents together with schoolchildren from the adjacent Lion King Day Care. This rare and enriching partnership allows our seniors to mingle and interact regularly with the Lion King children and to enjoy a fulfilling array of programming that benefits all participants. Aptly named the “Grandfriends Program,” this blending of generations in a shared environment brings the joy of youth and optimism to our seniors and imparts the wisdom and history of our seniors to the Lion King children.
