The excitement continues to build at Sunset Village, Sunset Retirement Communities’ Sylvania campus, with the launch of a brand new rehab center soon to take place. To celebrate the facility’s opening and introduce the public to all the services and amenities it has to offer, a special community preview event will be held on Sunday, April 2 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
“The staff and residents at Sunset Village have been eagerly anticipating the rehab center’s grand opening, and now we’re seeing that enthusiasm spread outward to the larger community we serve,” enthuses Gayle Young, Director of Marketing, Communication and Public Relations for Sunset Retirement Communities.
The new rehab center features a 6,000-square-foot gym area with new equipment, a Swimex therapy pool with three levels of water depth and a paddlewheel for resistance training, a mobility courtyard with varied surfaces to help clients practice navigating the different types of terrain they may encounter, a life skills apartment to help clients transition back home smoothly, and private treatment rooms. “We also have apartment-style suites with WI-FI access and personal-concierge-like services available to those clients who stay with us during their rehab. Daily life-enrichment offerings are also offered to make their stay as comfortable as possible. And we are pet friendly!” Young says.
Sunset Retirement Communities, which has been serving Northwest Ohio as a not-for-profit since the 1870s, takes pride in offering a full continuum of care, so that as residents’ care needs change, appropriate services will be available to accommodate them—whether they require assisted living, skilled nursing, memory support, respite care, rehab, or hospice and palliative care. The opening of the state-of-the-art rehab center at Sunset Village is just another example of this commitment in action.
Sunset’s professional rehab team understands that, as we age, it’s common to experience health issues impacting function, mobility, and overall quality of life. But we don’t have to accept these changes as inevitable. The rehab programs are varied to meet a diverse range of health issues, including orthopedic, neurological, cardiac, disease management of diabetes, congestive heart failure, cardiopulmonary disease, post-surgical pain management, and fall prevention. “By taking advantage of these services, rehab clients can continue to enjoy the highest possible quality of life and degree of independence despite their physical challenges,” Young says.
Rehab clients will appreciate the convenient, hassle-free access to the new center, which is located on the north side of the Sunset Village campus and easily accessible from Sylvania Metamora Road and Allen Road. What’s more, the new rehab center offers services on both an inpatient and outpatient basis, and a separate entrance is provided for outpatient clients. Sunset is also pet friendly, and clients are encouraged to bring their pets with them as they rehab.
In addition to the new rehab center, Sunset Village has seen plenty of exciting developments over the past year. For example, Fieldstone Villas, a Life Plan Community with 12 villas, opened in the fall of 2016. Sunset Village will also be marking its 15th anniversary of serving seniors in the Sylvania area. Now, with the opening of a state-of-the-art rehab center, Sunset’s Sylvania campus and continuum of care continues developing to better meet the needs of area seniors and their loved ones. In fact, Sunset Village currently offers assisted living, health care, memory care, and independent living all on one campus.
All of this exciting growth reflects Sunset Village’s philosophy as an Eden Registered Community, which focuses on the person and his or her choices and asserts that no matter how old we are or what challenges we live with, life is about continuing to grow. ❦
