Sunshine Retirement Living Acquires The Haven at North Hills, Retirement Living in Pittsburgh
Organizations Look Forward to Combining Resources to Provide Compassionate, Person-Centered Care in Pittsburgh
PITTSBURGH, PA (September 18th, 2018) – Sunshine Retirement Living is pleased to announce the addition of The Haven at North Hills to their extended network of state-of-the-art senior residences. The Haven’s beautiful campus and upscale amenities align well with Sunshine Retirement Living’s mission and vision, making the acquisition a natural next step for both organizations.
The Haven is staffed 24 hours a day to provide person-centered personal and memory care services in the Pittsburgh area, extending services beyond permanent residents to include those who need short-term or respite care.
Today’s older adults often seek communities that are able to offer hotel-like amenities for their ultimate comfort and leisure. The Haven at North Hills features a full range of amenities to ease each community member’s transition into personal care including their unique Easy-Move Program, month-to-month lease options, a robust daily rhythm program, location-based pendants for quick access to help, 24/7 dining, and more. Residents enjoy meals designed by an executive chef and prepared by an experienced team any time of the day or night, an amenity that very few personal and memory care communities provide for their residents. Those with dietary restrictions are welcomed and accommodated.
Residents are able to enjoy the things they like to do. The Haven’s daily rhythm program is designed to enrich the lives of residents and is backed by research and evidence. The program provides opportunities for social connections, spiritual support, emotional expression, and intellectual discovery through activities ranging from volunteerism to pet therapy. Each day, The Haven hosts a number of activities appealing to residents from all walks of life.
The Haven goes above and beyond retirement living to provide memory and personal care services in a safe and encouraging setting. Services at The Haven at North Hills include health monitoring, medication management, assistance with dressing, bathing, grooming, and oral care. The person-centered mission of The Haven ensures that the routines residents develop over their lifetimes are maintained – if they prefer – in the personal and memory care setting. Showering, personal care, dining, wake time, and bedtime depend on each individual’s preferences and requests, not the caregiver’s or residence’s schedule. When seeking retirement living in Pittsburgh, The Haven at North Hill is a leading option.
The grounds at The Haven promote an active lifestyle and the health benefits of exposure to sunshine and fresh air. Surrounded by lush greenery, a safe, secure walking path winds through the grounds for resident and guest use, featuring comfortable seating and peaceful views.
Advanced programs are offered to promote the independence and well-being of residents at The Haven, including calming music therapy, relaxing aromatherapy, proven validation techniques, and activities that promote health and wellness. The person-centered care model at The Haven focuses on encouraging and allowing each resident to exercise as much independence as they choose to and are able to exercise, which helps them maintain that independence for as long as possible.
The Haven at North Hills and Sunshine Retirement Living are excited about the acquisition and look forward to working together to deliver compassionate, person-centered care in the Pittsburgh area.
Family-owned and patient-centered, parent company Sunshine Retirement Living manages nearly two dozen retirement communities across the United States.

Autumn means colder weather, and that could also mean flu season too! It is important to stay warm and safe this season, especially because family and friends are traveling for the holidays!
If you are visiting someone or plan to, make sure you are layering your clothes or dressing appropriately for the weather, staying on top of your health by eating nutritious food, staying active, and getting proper rest. Don't forget to wash your hands and utilize hand sanitizer in public spaces!
Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and that means food and family! People have different ways to prepare for Thanksgiving.
Some plan out a list, down to the activities and conversations that can take place at the dinner table. These people also take out the recipe books and follow the directions to a tee! Others may take the go-with-the-flow approach and wing it! That includes recipes too.
Which group are you in? No matter your approach, we hope that this holiday season is a fulfilling one!
