Transforming Senior Living

Sunrise Senior Living was founded in 1981 by Paul and Terry Klaassen, inspired by a Dutch model based on warm and nurturing care environments. Their holistic, resident-centered approach focuses on individuality while encouraging purposeful living and meaningful connections among residents and the broader community.

Living Our Mission, Vision & Values

From passion and respect to celebrating individuality and nurturing the spirit, every Sunrise team member lives by our core values and principles of service. And we’re always reaching higher—constantly learning, improving, and striving to provide our residents with a personalized lifestyle and the best possible senior care.
I have to say that your organization is extremely well run. I congratulate you. This doesn’t happen by accident. When something looks easy, it is because those doing it are pros, and not because what they do is simple.
