My mother lived as an independent at Sun Towers retirement home for seven and a half years. The last three months as full assistance. She loved her apartment and the staff and I believe they loved her too. She made friends and participated in many activities as well as being a volunteer at the country store and the library. Her last months were in a declining phase and the staff really stepped up to make her as comfortable as possible. I would recommend this facility to everyone looking to move where they could be taken care of yet be independent. My mom would have said the same. When looking for a home for mom after dad passed I did my homework and visited every facility in the Sun City Center area and none could compare. If your looking for a place that cares, that maintains their facility, and has a competent staff from the kitchen staff through the nurses, that will carry them from independent to the end of their days then look no further.
