Life At Sunset Park Place


Many people ask us what it’s like to live at Sunset Park Place and what kind of activities we have. There is always some type of activity to get you going at 9:15 every morning followed by exercise class at 10 am (which we hold six days a week) followed by activities, music or some type of entertainment in the afternoon. That just scratches the surface of what we have going on! A full schedule of our activities can be found on our website. We also offer a wide variety of activities outside our community, everything from grocery shopping once a week, making a pie run at Rhody’s, going to the Presentation Sisters Garage Sale and having lunch or dinner at an area restaurant such as Texas Roadhouse. We invite you to sample our lifestyle at Sunset!

“I'm seeing SUCH a change in Mom.  She's doing better than she has in a year or more.  I think it's a combination of the nice surroundings, the friendly people (residents & staff alike), and the fact that I know she's getting her required meds on schedule.” 

––Kim Peters

“With this letter I want to express my profound gratitude to you for the excellent care you gave my mother, Dorothy Murray.  Your compassion, competency and patience were outstanding.  Mother experienced your gentle care and felt so safe with you.”
