Sunshine House Expanding Services

The Sunshine House is embarking on an effort to expand its services in the area of adult day care by dedicating space in its facility off Yew Street on the west side of Sturgeon Bay. The expansion is expected to include support for those with alzheimer’s, dementia, parkinson’s, arthritis, stroke-related memory loss, cognitive impairment, the medically frail and seniors in general who are looking for a place to be. The organization’s board of directors has signed off on a plan that will convert the agency’s board room into a space that will include a private bathroom, fully appointed kitchen, activity tables, a computer/work station, living room, and a private quiet room. The board room will be relocated. The hope is to provide the expanded service during the winter of 2016. In anticipation of that goal, staff is undergoing training in order to meet the needs of a new population. Community support will be needed in order to re-purpose the facility, increase program activities, and provide financial assistance for those who need help, but do not qualify for government assistance. Obtaining donations and grant support will be crucial in meeting the program’s future needs. For more information, call 743-7943.
