Sunrise at East 56th is designed for seniors looking for the very best in care and wellness in the Manhattan neighborhood they call home. The community will provide personalized assisted living as well as a secure, engaging environment for seniors with memory loss, including Alzheimer's disease.

'At Sunrise, we're committed to enhancing our residents' quality of life and seeking opportunities to innovate. We believe our senior living communities should be as unique and savvy as the residents we serve,' said Chris Winkle, CEO of Sunrise. 'By teaming with Philips, we will provide our seniors, particularly those with cognitive and memory impairments, an individualized wellness experience that advances their safety and happiness, and helps provide added piece of mind for their caregivers. We look forward to continued collaboration to explore future technologies to support residents and their wellness.'

Adaptable and designed to be enhanced as technology evolves, Philips' resident safety platform helps position Sunrise for long-term success in the market. Philips Cares for Senior Living is part of the Philips Cares solution family, which together empower at-risk seniors and their professional and family caregivers across independent living and senior living communities to help make sure the right care is being provided at the right time.
