Sunshine Christian Homes
About Sunshine Christian Homes
In 1976, Sunshine Christian Homes was founded as a facility for retiring Christian ministers and needy missionaries who had spent their careers in the mission fields around the world. Since that small beginning over 43 years ago, we have grown to be all inclusive and now have 86 villas in our retirement village and 105 beds in our care center. We also provide a secured memory care area for those with conditions that require extra attention. Sunshine Christian Homes is a Retirement Community providing “Quality Care in a Christian Environment” to seniors on a fixed income, who can no longer care for themselves at home. Since we are a non-profit organization, quality care of our residents, not profit, it is our number one motivation. We have no shareholders to pay dividends to, so 100% of our income stays within our facility and is used to provide services and maintain our facilities.
Living at Sunshine Christian Home can mean different things to different people. For some, it is simply the security of knowing that a helpful and caring staff member is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For others, it is a matter of having someone around to help with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, preparing meals and getting from place to place. Always, it is providing assistance when needed in an environment that promotes dignity and independence.
Our governing Board of Directors and Administration are dedicated Christians led by Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Diane Toland, Board Secretary, Alice Nussbaum, along with newly appointed Administrator/COO, Kate Brusik, RN, BSN. The three have a combined service of more than 50 years to the home and in health care business administration.
Many area churches and individual contributors donate funds along with thousands of hours of volunteer time to support our mission. You can become a part of this ministry as the Lord leads you. Just tell us your interests and availability. There is a place for you to serve.
Our Charitable Care Fund exists to assist residents whose personal funds do not fully cover their room and board expense. Our Helping Hands Fund is specifically designed to assist residents who need financial assistance with the high cost of prescriptions, medical care or daily needs.
Independent Retirement Living in the Village - Sunshine Christian Homes, Inc. offers a secure independent living lifestyle at an affordable cost. Our Christian Retirement Village is nestled on 12 landscaped acres, in the relaxing area of Holiday Florida, just a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico. There are 86 villas, 24-one bedroom and 62-two-bedroom units (see below for floor plans). Our villas are a unique and interesting place for those who desire to continue to live independently, but no longer want the work and expense of owning and maintaining a home. What makes us unique is that we offer something most have never heard of, a Life-Use-Lease.
Life-Use-Lease - Life-use-lease is made available to qualified people who are sixty-two (62) years or older. The lease arrangement means: The resident lives in the villa until death or until unable to live there safely and independently. In the case of couples, until the last one dies or is unable to live safely and independently. For those who cannot afford the larger up-front payment, we offer other low-cost plans.
Assisted Living in the Care Center - Designed for residents who need minimal assistance but prefer the security, warmth and social environment offered by Sunshine Christian Home.
