Our Commitment to…
These commitments below will daily transform Sunset Retirement Communities & Services, not by human strength alone, but through the wisdom and love of God.
We believe our care should reflect the attitude of Jesus Christ “who came not to be served but to serve.” (Mark 10:45) We promise to extend ourselves, through his power, in order to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of our residents, thereby allowing them to achieve full potential.
We believe integrity, open communication and a strong financial foundation will allow us to provide quality care, while at the same time offering benevolence to those who outlive personal or family resources. We pledge to provide cost effective services in order to maximize the functional abilities of each resident.
We believe each employee is a valued member of the team and contributes significantly to organizational achievement. We pledge to provide encouragement, resources and training to assist each employee in reaching personal excellence in job performance.
We believe an informed, educated constituency will continually challenge us to new heights of service and compassion. We promise to promote awareness of seniors’ issues within our sphere of influence through informational seminars, advocacy and pro-active involvement in community events.
