Sunshine Retirement Living Adds Assisted Living Facility in Bartlett
BARTLETT, TN (SEPTEMBER 9th, 2019) – Sunshine Retirement Living announces the addition of Quail Ridge Assisted Living & Memory Care to its nationwide network of retirement communities. Sunshine focuses on providing Person-Centered Care to retirees in nearly 30 locations throughout the United States. Bartlett, TN, is a community just outside of Memphis and has now become home to one of Sunshine’s newest locations. Bartlett started as a stagecoach stop but has grown into a city that offers retirees small-town friendliness, beautiful parks, and green spaces.
Quail Ridge offers assisted living and memory care services, all within a luxury, resort-style setting. The community boasts safe, comfortable apartments with multiple floor plan options, including private and semi-private suites, as well as companion suites. And the community’s grounds, along with Bartlett’s warm weather, encourage indoor-outdoor living. The grounds include secured walking paths and well-tended, enclosed gardens, as well as a patio with comfortable benches that sports beautiful views.
The experienced staff at Quail Ridge provide completely customized care options, with the aim of fostering independence over-dependence in a private, secure setting. The team includes a highly-trained Executive Director, licensed Director of Nursing, licensed Memory Care Director, and certified Life Enrichment Director. This passionate and dedicated team of skilled professionals offer exceptional support for residents’ needs, including physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs, through engaging daily activities.
Quail Ridge’s Person-Centered Care approach focuses on customizing care options for residents’ individual needs, while the community’s Active Living Programs allow residents to live life to their fullest capability. Additionally, the community provides options for health monitoring, medication management, assistance with dressing, bathing, grooming, and oral care, all delivered in an encouraging and nurturing environment. Quail Ridge offers a range of memory care options, including Transitional Assisted Living for residents starting to experience memory challenges, Memory Care for Alzheimer’s and dementia, respite, and hospice care with a professional staff available day and night.
Quail Ridge’s Alzheimer’s, Memory Care, and Transitional Care programs are designed to nurture the physical, social, spiritual, cognitive, and emotional needs of all residents. The programs include music therapy, aromatherapy, validation techniques, socialization, a calendar of health and wellness activities, life skills stations, and more.
Residents can enjoy 24/7 dining with nutritious, delicious food prepared with the freshest ingredients by Quail Ridge’s Executive Chef and the team of professionals. But the community’s daily menu also incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet, which is meant to foster brain health. At Quail Ridge, the MIND diet, in conjunction with the community’s many Memory Care programs, is intended to support mind health and prevent memory issues for as long as possible. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually with multiple daily menu choices.
To make residents’ transition to retirement living easy and seamless, Quail Ridge offers an easy-move program that eases the anxiety associated with moving. Caring and dedicated staff are available to assist in matters such as real estate, financial services, moving professionals, veteran assistance, and more.

Protecting your skin throughout all of the seasons of the year is an important, but often overlooked, aspect of health. Using sunscreen is extremely important when it is hot and sunny outside, but it is also important to moisturize your skin too!
Moisture helps your skin repair itself. This comes in handy if your skin is damaged by something more serious, like the sun or an infection. A good amount of moisture in your skin also help reduce the likeliness of minor skin problems like tightness and itchiness.
Make sure you are using both sunscreen and moisturizer this summer!
Sleep is an important--and often ignored--part of health. That's why we encourage our residents to have good sleep hygiene, which involves creating a good environment for restful, restorative sleep.
Try these tips for better sleep: - Keep your sleeping environment dark and free from noises - Stop using electronic devices at least 1 hour before bed, as the blue light emitted from screens can disrupt sleep - Keep your room between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit, which is proven to be the ideal sleep temperature
