Active Adult Retirement Living: What It Is & Why It Could Be Right for You

Sponsored Content Submitted by Sonrisa Senior Living.

Retirement has so much potential for adults who are seeking an active, vibrant lifestyle. For these seniors, retirement in an independent living community is the perfect choice. At Sonrisa Senior Living in Roseville, the level of luxury and attention to detail makes it comparable to resort living, all day every day. From activities to wonderful meals to an all-inclusive atmosphere, life for Sonrisa residents is nothing short of spectacular.

Amazing Housing Options

Unlike many senior living communities, Sonrisa offers residents beautifully appointed apartments like studios with alcoves or with one or two bedrooms. Each has a modern kitchen with full-size stainless-steel appliances as well as premium touches like soft-close cabinets and under-cabinet lighting. With 9-foot ceilings, our apartments are designed to be bright and open. Our residents appreciate privacy in their own apartments, but also the close proximity to friends, activities, and amenities.  


A Day in the Life 

Sonrisa is so much more than exceptional apartments, though. We offer a diverse mix of activities, events, and opportunities for seniors who love to enjoy each day to its fullest. For example, on a typical day, a resident can savor a chef-prepared breakfast in our elegant restaurant and then head to the courtyard pool to swim laps. Or perhaps they will choose to work out in the state-of-the art fitness center, join one of the daily Fit Club exercise or stretch classes, or play a few rounds of pickleball. 

After lunch there are still more possibilities from hanging out poolside with a good book, to a movie matinee in the theater. Or perhaps they are looking forward to a painting or craft class. Many residents take advantage of our onsite hair salon and look forward to a massage or facial at the Day Spa. 

There are also resident groups that meet and share insights and a cup of coffee at the Bistro Café. For those who love to be on the go, there are frequent planned trips to different venues in the area. Later in the afternoon is another chance to keep fit with the Fit Club or perhaps it’s time to take the dog to the dog park for a little canine merriment. 

Dinner is another gastronomic fête in the restaurant featuring a chef display open kitchen. Or perhaps if a resident is having guests for dinner, they can create a favorite dish in their own kitchen. The beauty lies in the dining choices offered. After dinner, our residents and friends can take an evening stroll to the Lounge and Bar for a nightcap and great conversation. 


More Than Meets the Eye

In addition to all the tangible benefits of Sonrisa Senior Living, there are more ways the independent living lifestyle makes life better for active older adults. One of those is the freedom that comes with having housekeeping and linen services included in the monthly fee. No more setting time aside to clean the house and wash linens, instead that time can be spent relaxing or being active in the community. 

Another appealing aspect of independent living is that seniors who want to travel in retirement can leave home for as long as they like knowing their possessions are safe and secure under the watchful eye of staff. 

Active seniors who expect more from their retirement years will find that Sonrisa exceeds retirement living expectations on every level. Find out what you are missing by visiting or call 916-713-5471 for more information and to schedule a visit to experience it for yourself.
