"From the moment I walked in the door with my mom and my husband, I was impressed! There was an "at home" feeling… One thing that my husband and I were impressed with was we were encouraged to sit and talk to the current residents, and the feedback we got was what we needed to hear…the large majority of them loved living here…We placed mom here, and I couldn't be happier with the choice. Coming from a medical family background, I'm quite happy that we get contacted on a regular basis about anything that might come up with mom and her medical care. I'm there several times a week, and her room and bathroom are always clean, and I have to admit, I will join mom for meals now and then, and have been quite impressed. She's been there for quite some time now, and I'm still just as happy as I was back when we first brought her here… I'd like to commend the staff for making this feel like home to my mom!"

More than anything, it is this welcoming, warm, above-and-beyond attitude that makes Sun City Senior Living so special. We do all we can to welcome our residents with open arms, and provide an enriching, engaging and vibrant community for them. From social events to activities and therapies such as pet therapy pup visits, weekly bake sales raising funds of the Alzhemiers, or lively happy hour events, our community is a dynamic and fun place to live. 


"I visited many assisted livings. From Brandon to Sun City down to Bradenton. This is by far the best facility out of all. It was not because of it being a new building or because of the beauty, no it was because it felt like home when we entered the facility for the first time. we showed up unannounced and there were residents just hanging out in the lobby. there were staff members every corner we turned and they all greeted us with big smiles. I saw people participating in activities, the residents there looked genuinely happy to be there. We meet several residents that welcomed us and told us how nice the staff is and how good the food is. We met a staff member that has worked there for over 20 year. and 1 that worked there for 12 years. Just amazing. The director was so kind, and made us feel so comfortable with every aspect of the tour. It was because of all the reasons and many more why we chose this place for my Aunt. She is doing fantastic. She loves it there. I could not believe how happy she was. For someone that refused to give up her home and move to no such thing, just goes to show you that assisted livings are the answer when there are no other options. My aunt and my family have gained a huge family in Pacifica Sun City and we could not be any happier. Thank you to all of your staff that does such a wonderful job. We are truly blessed." -Judy

At Sun City Senior Living, we are like family. Every member of our team and every resident becomes part of the extended Sun City family, and we love coming together to spend time with one another, enjoy activities, or simply share in one another’s life. This connection goes beyond our residents to extend to the family members and loved ones of our residents as well. 

"Mom was very unhappy at her last Assistant Living facility that she was at for 3 years. I moved her to Sun City Center about 2 months ago. She has never been more happy. She calls it her Blue Heaven. Very friendly staff, good food and gazebo by pond very peaceful. They treat her with respect and are very patient. Thanks for easing my mind and making mom happy in her twilight years."  -Wendy


We understand that moving to a senior living community, or helping a loved one move is not always an easy transition, but we are here every step of the way to assist, support, and comfort as needed. Our experts and experienced team members can help guide everyone through this process, even when there are bumps in the road. 

"Moving my mom to an ALF (Assisted Living Facility) has been a difficult journey, at best. My mother was in need of assistance with all daily living functions & a lot of physical assistance due to diminished equilibrium. She has also begun to show signs of dementia…My mom did not want to go to ALF, but it was no longer negotiable, so we began this journey. From my initial contact, and still today (1.5 months) the staff & management have been amazing. They took us by the hand, supported us & loved my mom (even through her continued rejection) through this…I was scared & overwhelmed, and my mom was in overload & quite difficult to work with. Once again, the staff were reassuring, supportive, and loving. From the 1st visit, and still today, I believe this is one of the best ALF's, with staff who truly care, are patient & loving with the residents…Overall, I'm very glad we found this ALF, and that they had space when we needed it."
