Sunset’s new rehab center now in full swing

Written by Healthy Living News. Posted in June

After many months of growing anticipation and excitement, the new cutting-edge rehab center at Sunset Village, Sunset Retirement Communities’ Sylvania campus, is now open and serving clients’ diverse rehabilitation needs, including orthopedic, neurological, cardiac, disease management of diabetes, congestive heart failure, cardiopulmonary disease, post-surgical pain management, and fall prevention.


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 apaddlewheel 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. The center—which is pet friendly to make it feel even more like home—also offers private suites with WI-FI access as well as personal-concierge-like services for clients who stay at the facility during their rehab.

Of course, the greatest asset of the new rehab center isn’t its features and amenities, but its dedicated staff. Gayle Young, Director of Marketing, Communication and Public Relations for Sunset Retirement Communities, states, “Our physical, occupational, and speech therapists are highly skilled and patient-focused, and their primary goal is ensuring every client who trusts us to help them on their rehab journey regains the highest possible degree of function, independence, and overall quality of life.”

Located on the north side of the Sunset Village campus and easily accessible from Sylvania Metamora Road and Allen Road, the new rehab center offers services on both an inpatient and outpatient basis (with a separate entrance provided for outpatient clients). Therapy is available up to seven days a week, and admissions are accepted 24 hours a day. Medicare and other commercial insurance plans are accepted.

The new rehab center is just one more example of Sunset’s commitment to providing a full continuum of care. In addition to rehab services, Sunset Village—which will be celebrating its 15th anniversary this July—offers assisted living, health care, memory support, and Ashanti hospice.

The Sunset Village campus is also home to Fieldstone Villas, a unique 12-unit Life Plan Community (formerly called a CCRC). Situated in a luxuriant, park-like setting complete with walking paths, lush landscaping, and beautiful views overlooking ponds and meadows.Fieldstone Villas redefines the traditional image of a retirement community while freeing residents from the burdensome chores of homeownership.

All these offerings ensure that as residents’ care needs change, appropriate services will be available to accommodate them so they never have to leave behind the community they call home. They also reflect 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.

“Active seniors will feel right at home at Sunset Village. We offer several living options so you can enjoy retirement’s unlimited pleasures. Whether you reside in one of our beautifully appointed apartments or utilize the added assistance available among our expertly staffed neighborhoods, your time is yours to spend as you wish,” Young says.❦
