Paid caregivers can be expected to help with an array of tasks and services, such as transportation and mobility, assisting with medicine and meals, and helping with personal hygiene and care. These tasks are essential to ensure that the individuals needing care are living happy and healthy lives.
Therapeutic Options Training helps reduce violence and the use of restraint in health care, behavioral health care, habilitation, and education settings. It provides caregivers and other individuals with tools to keep people safe during high tension situations without the risk of escalation or danger.
Many people who are aging, chronically ill, recovering from surgery, or disabled receive home care, especially if their care needs are not extensive. For older adults, this is often referred to as “aging in place.”

Getting a dual diagnosis can be both scary and a relief. While you might not be thrilled to know you have multiple mental or behavioral health challenges, you may also feel relieved to be able to finally put a name to what you’re experiencing and to know there are steps you can take to improve your life.
At Sunrise, we understand what you’re going through and want to make compassionate dementia care as easy as possible. Below, we’ve gathered a list of community care resources to help adults living with dementia and their families throughout Western Washington.
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, only 43.3% of U.S. adults with mental illness receive treatment. While a large part of the problem is that many of us are reluctant to admit when we need help ― the average delay between onset of mental illness symptoms and treatment is 11 years ― some Americans fear that they will be unable to afford the services they need.
Sunrise Services is excited to announce our new program, Sunrise Senior Transitions! We are here to provide compassion and assistance to seniors and their families during the transition to new care options or a safer living environment. We help families navigate the end of life years and the behavioral issues that can result from mental decline or dementia.
