Sunrise Senior Living opened in 1981 as a resident-centered environment. Until then, the only available senior care was in institutional-like facilities otherwise known as nursing homes. With their new approach to senior care, Sunrise Founders Paul and Terry Klaassen began a movement to champion quality of life for all seniors.

Based in McLean, Virginia, our company now serves nearly 30,000 residents in communities in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom.
