    Sunset Homes is comprised of two residential care homes established in September 1990, located near the ocean in Laguna Niguel, California. The homes were established to provide individualized assistance from two live-in Care Providers. Through the use of sensitive and compassionate staff along with a program that promotes independent and personalized care, the resident soon realized that they are living in a home where their needs are satisfied in a supportive and efficient manner. At Sunset Homes we provide quality general services as well as many special services due to the back ground and experience of Mr. Robert Green RN, MSN. Please visit the website for a comprehensive over view of the services provided and educational requirements of the Care Providers in order to work with Sunset Homes clients. A planned activity program including available community resources i.e., church services, senior centers, beauty parlor appointments etc. Our services or activities maybe modified to meet the needs or the desires of the resident or their family. The special services that are provided are: 1) Care of Dementia clients and their unique needs. We maintain a DSS dementia waiver along with all the required annual and on going dementia education for the Care Providers. Care of terminal/dying clients and their unique needs. We maintain a DSS hospice waiver. Mr. Green RN attends medical appointments with his clients along with a family member in order to provide accurate medical information to the physician while facilitating good communication between all that are concerned.
