Senior Living HGTV Design Tips

Sunrise has blog posts and ideas that their residents can use to make their apartments within the Sunrise community comfortable and welcoming.

Sunrise Senior Living's Interactive Floor Plan

An interactive floor plan that Sunrise has on their website of a typical one bedroom apartment at a Sunrise community allows visitors to view the layout with furniture in the unit. By clicking on the orange information buttons throughout the apartment, visitors can see photos and ideas of what type of furniture would be best in the space.

This is a great resource for families and residents to get an idea of what furniture will fit in the space before moving in. Since bringing in personal items to the new senior community is a good way to make the space feel more like home, using this tool is a good way to ease the transition from living at home to moving to a senior living community.

Easing the Transition to Senior Living

Even if your loved one is not moving into a Sunrise Senior Living community, working together to plan the apartment layout before hand is a great activity to involve the senior and to plan what furniture can be set aside for the new apartment ahead of time.
