Sunnyside Adventist Care Centre believes that healthcare is multi-dimensional and includes the socialization and integration of all our residents into our community. We believe that every resident is unique and regardless of age or ability, should be given a wide range of options to grow and excel. We believe that innovation, integrity, community, empowerment and passion should propel us to improve and transform the lives of all our residents. With this in mind we are convinced that is our duty to help our residents fulfill their goals, re-cast their vision and experience well-being even as they adapt to their new psycho-social environment.  Sunnyside Adventist Care Centre is intentional in its approach to care for the human spirit and to eliminate, helplessness, loneliness and boredom and so we provide social and recreational services seven days a week – including holidays. The services we provide are designed to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual needs of our residents. Sunnyside Adventist Care Centre utilizes the services of qualified care partners, who utilize specialized tools, tests, assessments and measurements to design programs and activities to meet the unique needs of each resident.
