    The rooms at Sunrise were nice. The lighting was a little muted and dark, but the staff was nice. I liked that they accepted pets because my parents had dogs. However, at that time, they did not have memory care rooms available.

    Sunrise of Mission Viejo was a lovely place and a small community. The people were very happy. The rooms were small, and for me and my husband to live in them, it would have been very tight. I don’t think it would have been something that we would have chosen, but it was lovely...

    We liked Sunrise's facility and the rooms that were available. The tour was good. We were able to see the facility and found out where it was and what it was like. The only thing that was left was the question of how the charges were going to be generated outside the normal fee.

Information About Retirement Community in Sun City

Sun City is located in Maricopa County, Arizona, near the center of the state, within the Phoenix Metropolitan Area. The city is a destination for a lot of retirees and snowbirds, making retirement communities in Sun City in high demand. As of the 2010 census, the population was 37,499. Sun City is actually an unincorporated part of Maricopa County, and it's an age-restricted communisunset over Lake 3ty. That means residents must be 19 years of age or older, and at least one member of a household must be 55 or older. The entire city caters to retirees, with lots of clubs, golf courses, and activities for older active adults. Taxes in Sun City are notoriously low, with no sales tax or school tax (as there are no residents under 19, there are no schools), and property taxes that are among the lowest in the nation.

Organizations Serving Seniors in Sun City

Volunteer opportunities are also available for interested seniors, and seniors can also receive legal assistance. Seniors with vision impairment can find individual counseling, group meetings, and rehabilitation services available at the center. The senior center is also host to a Benefits Enrollment Center, which helps seniors and disabled adults to figure out what benefits they qualify for and how to apply for them.
