CARE THAT’S ALWAYS THERE
Our Memory Care residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that professional service staff is available 24 hours a day and an emergency call response and security system is in place for residents with dementia. Prior to moving in we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. Nurses and resident assistants are always available to assist with medication administration, incontinence care, and the activities of daily life. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.
WORRY-FREE LIFESTYLE WITH JUST A SIMPLE LEASE
While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease.
Sunflower Gardens offers private and shared apartment homes. Further detail regarding floor plans, amenities, and more can be found along the sidebar to the left.

Testimonials for Sunflower Gardens
“My mother has Alzheimer’s and is otherwise healthy. We stopped looking for a place for her after visiting Sunflower Gardens. My mom has been there about six weeks now and I am consistently impressed by the number of staff members in any given shift and by the affection and warmth they give each resident. The facility is spotless with everyone from the RN who handles meds to the nice gentleman who stocks and cleans the bathrooms is empowered and encouraged to stop and chat with any resident at any time. It was a difficult decision to move my mother from the home she used to share with my dad, but the staff and conditions at Sunflower Gardens makes me realize my brother and I made the right choice for her.”
“We were so stressed out about Dad, Mom was not sleeping well ( one eye open she said), giving him 24/7 attention and care. We looked at 4 other options. Sunflower was just far and away the best. At first, it also seemed highest in cost. However, it’s cost is all inclusive with one small exception. The Residence is only 5 minutes from Mom’s, she drops in whenever she wants. She is always welcomed, the staff all know Dad and updates her. She’ll visit, maybe eat with Dad and then watch him in a activity. She leaves with a good feeling about placing Dad there. She’s still sad they aren’t living together anymore, yet she knows in her heart that Dad is safe, well looked after and happy in the moment.”
