SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -
Residents at one retirement community are enjoying a "new sunrise" as they move into a new multi-million dollar building.
The Heath Center at Sunrise Retirement Community in Sioux City features things like a chapel, an indoor park, and new dining facility.
The $14 million building is the final phase of the community's master plan.
The first phase included a 62 unit independent apartment building.
Executive director Bev Zenor calls the new building "friendly" and "welcoming."
"You know, it has dining areas that are close to where people live in their neighborhoods. So it's all very convenient. They'll be able to feel like everything they need is close at hand, and yet, they'll be able to get out with a large group of people if they would like," said Bev Zenor, executive director.
The old building, built in the 1950s, was based on an institutional model of nursing care.
The new facility is based on a "social" model.
One resident was at a loss of words describing her new home.
"I just couldn't imagine what it would be, and this exceeds all my expectations," said Rachel Tolles, resident.
Thursday is the first night for residents in their new home.
Volunteers help made the move possible, including college students and hospital employees.
