Sunnyside has been voted “Best in Virginia” by readers of Virginia Living Magazine once again this year!





















Sunnyside’s BLOOM (Bringing Life Optimizing Opportunities Mainstream) program has been chosen as one of North America’s most innovative active-aging programs by the International Council on Active Aging (ICAA) for 2015! The ICAA publicly recognizes the efforts of individuals and organizations that make outstanding contributions in industries serving the older-adult market. This award gives us national recognition in the industry as an innovator and leader and national media coverage. Congratulations to Annie Shaffer, Sunnyside Wellness Director and her team for putting together such an outstanding program for the residents of Sunnyside!


First Choice Home Health, a home care and home health agency jointly owned by Bridgewater Retirement Community and Virginia Mennonite Retirement Community, has welcomed Sunnyside Communities as a new partner to the joint venture.


First Choice Home Health was established in Harrisonburg, Virginia in 1977. In 2007, Bridgewater and Virginia Mennonite Retirement Communities came together and jointly purchased the agency. First Choice Home Health offers a broad range of in-home healthcare services in the Harrisonburg area.


We are excited as an organization to more formalize our ability to make home health services available to our residents!


Sunnyside was named one of the Best Nursing Homes of 2013 by U.S. News & World Report which highlights more than 15,000 nursing homes spanning the 50 states. Click here to read more about the rating!
