Paul and Terry Klaassen

Paul and Terry KlaassenPaul and Terry Klaassen founded Sunrise Senior Living more than 35 years ago. Ever since, Sunrise has been based on the same simple yet innovative vision — to create alternative senior living options that champion quality of life.

Today, Paul and Terry’s vision is reflected in our resident-centred approach to senior living, which focuses on each older person as an individual and understands their unique needs. The result: tailored living, service and care options that enable each and every one of our residents to live life on their own terms.

Sunrise’s offerings are based on two lasting principles. The Sunrise Signature Experience describes our approach to creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that is unlike any other senior living environment, while the Sunrise Principles of Service define how every Sunrise team member delivers our person-centred services.

Many years after the first Sunrise opened its doors, Paul and Terry are still involved in Sunrise today. You can read more about Paul and Terry in The Sunrise Story.
