Family-Focused Senior Living in New Dorp, Staten Island
The very best in senior living is coming to Staten Island this summer. The brand-new Sunrise of New Dorp will open its doors to seniors and their families who are seeking a personalized approach to assisted living and memory care provided by a highly trained team of experienced, compassionate caregivers.
Just off Hylan Boulevard on the east side of Staten Island, Sunrise of New Dorp is a part of a beautiful residential area convenient to the Boulevard Shops, restaurants, medical services, and New Dorp Beach.
The Sunrise dining program will bring residents delicious, well-balanced, restaurant-quality meals each and every day, prepared by our in-house chef with fresh herbs and seasonal, local ingredients. Menus will include a variety of options, and meals will be tailored to individual tastes and dietary restrictions.
Smile® for Senior Living
At Sunrise of New Dorp, helping residents and their families stay in touch will always be a top priority. That’s the purpose of the innovative family engagement app, Smile® for Senior Living, that allows family members to conveniently see what their loved ones are up to each day.
Step into their world: Families can view photos and videos of their loved ones as they engage in activities and enjoy their time and view the community activities calendar to see the variety of programming.
Communicate easily: Families can stay in touch with their loved one’s activities coordinator to see how they’re spending their days, while they can also share photos and videos of important moments, such as the birth of a new family member.
See what’s on the menu: Family members enjoy taking a peek into what foods their loved one is enjoying each day, including seasonal dishes, chef specials, holiday meals, and snack and beverage cart themes.
Create a life story: Residents can share stories from their lives during one-onone chats with team members, which will be entered into the app; family members can then share their own memories of their loved one.
Stay informed: From community announcements and special event flyers to gift drop-off guidance and coordinating visits, families can easily stay in the know.
Give feedback: Family members can make sure their voices are heard by taking Sunrise surveys and polls.
Thoughtful, Classic Design
Families and their loved ones will have their choice of different types of suites to suit different preferences—some residents wish to share the comfort and companionship of a spouse or a friend, while others prefer to enjoy their own company in a private suite. All the thoughtfully designed suites will boast a bright and airy
atmosphere, thanks to large windows that let in plenty of light, and classic decor with high-quality finishes and features for maximum comfort.
Elegant, senior-friendly design is evident throughout the community, in the form of artwork by local artists, cozy seating, an expansive outdoor terrace, and bright common spaces that will welcome engaging programmed activities, gatherings with friends and family, and spontaneous moments of casual conversation or quiet contemplation. And in the memory care areas, residents will benefit from “way-finding wallpaper” in different colors chosen specifically to help aging eyes navigate the environment.
The comfort and safety of all residents are of prime importance at every Sunrise Senior Living community, including here in New Dorp. In addition to an emergency response system and the Sunrise CareConnect electronic health record system, Sunrise of New Dorp will adhere to strict cleaning protocols, with professional deep-cleaning procedures performed as necessary.
Live With Purpose™
Each day will be filled with a blend of engaging activities and outings that enrich body, mind, and spirit, encouraging residents to Live With Purpose™. This important aspect of living at a Sunrise community comes to life in eight ways:
Live with action: Physical activity is key to senior health and well-being—physical
activity in seniors slows the decline of dementia and keeps the body healthy. Live with anticipation: Residents will find a supportive and encouraging environment in which to recount personal journeys, share experiences, and honor accomplishments.
Live with artistry: Learning about and creating art stimulates creativity and promotes healthy brain activity in seniors.
Live with generosity: By participating in a community service project of their choice, seniors can remain physically active and mentally alert—and maintain a sense of meaning and purpose. Live with learning: It’s crucial for seniors to keep the mind in shape, both for cognitive health and for rich, enjoyable days filled with thoughtful engagement.
Live with legacy: Intergenerational experiences are socially engaging and can promote cognitive stimulation. Live with melody: There’s a strong connection between music and memory, so music-centered activities not only enliven the spirit, but also stimulate the mind.
Live with reflection: Whatever form one’s individual spirituality takes, Sunrise encourages meditation, prayer groups, or other means of peaceful expression. Find out more about what will make Sunrise of New Dorp a wonderful place to call home. For pricing and availability, call (718) 304-1071.
