Tour Sunset Without Leaving Home

Posted by Gayle Young on May 27, 2020 3:30:01 PM

At Sunset Communities, we often witness a love-at-first-sight phenomenon among people touring our locations. Whether looking for a senior living option for themselves or a loved one, many visitors become immediately taken by our beautiful and comfortable surroundings and our warm and friendly staff. We enjoy showing off our lovely grounds and magnificent buildings, so we encourage everyone to come for a tour.

Because in-person visits are sometimes impossible, we created short virtual tours for each of our communities. By clicking on the images below, you can experience some of Sunset’s visual attractions online.

If you have questions that arise while watching the videos, or if you would like to schedule a future onsite tour, please contact us.
