Here at Sunshine, nothing is more important to us than our residents.
While it is our stated mission to enrich their lives, the truth is that they offer us the same service in return. It is a privilege and a pleasure to have them in our lives. They are our family and they inspire us each and every day with their personalities, their outlook and their humanity.
We have created These Eyes Have Seen as a celebration of our residents and of elders everywhere. It’s a passion project motivated by the simple idea that documenting and sharing their stories will allow us to provide joy, inspiration and guidance to all who share them.
As they take measure of their very full lives, what do they remember most fondly, or with the most regret? What experiences or people did the most to shape their lives? What wisdom or life lessons can they offer us?
Poignant. Insightful. Heart-breaking. Laugh-out-loud funny. The stories they share are as diverse as the portraits we capture. Together, they offer a powerful perspective on life, love and the journey we all share in common.
These Eyes Have Seen lives on the web and on Facebook. We hope you’ll join our community and help us to share these amazing people and their stories with the world.
