At Sunrise Senior Village
With Spring’s arrival, Silver State Housing coordinated a St. Patrick’s Day potluck luncheon, enjoyed by all in attendance. March Babies was celebrated mid-month with cake for all residents born in March. This is fast becoming a tradition each month, and a chance to meet new neighbors and mingle with old friends.
Of course, weekly food deliveries continue, as well as the Silver Star Bus for outings and appointments. Pokeno is on the calendar twice monthly, and residents are enjoying the Card Players once a month.
Free cell phones have been distributed to qualifying residents at all the properties, as well as SNAP benefits. SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program administered through the State that increases food purchasing power for those in need. Also, all the properties continue to have their resident meetings each month, an essential way to be proactive where problems are concerned, and where residents help to shape their community. We encourage their participation in making the properties their home!
