Learning From Our Veteran Residents at Sterling Ridge

At Sterling Ridge Senior Living, we know that our resident veterans have so much to teach us, whether they fought in World War II, the Vietnam or Korean War, served domestically or in the reserves, or were members of the Army, Navy, Air Force or Marines.

Veterans in general, but especially senior veterans, have so much to share, beyond heroic service and personal sacrifices they made for our country. Their stories offer perspective, their demeanors teach us respect, and their service and duty demonstrate what it means to be an honorable American and sacrificing for the good of many.

As we age, our health status can decline, our financial resources can diminish, and we can become isolated from our families, friends and others. Sadly, this is often no different for our veterans. It’s just one more reason senior service members shouldn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated, especially on Veterans Day.

Fortunately, Sterling Ridge is a veteran-proud senior living community that provides a safe, welcoming, and supportive environment where senior veterans can continue life’s best experiences all year-round.

One way we honor and support our veteran residents every day is through regular meetings of our veterans’ groups, which provide a social and emotional outlet for these residents with military backgrounds. We also host events so our veteran residents can get together to share their experiences and bond with fellow service members.

In addition, Sterling Ridge encourages veterans and surviving spouses to apply for the Veterans Administration’s Aid and Attendance Benefits*, which can significantly offset the cost of monthly rent for our assisted living or memory care services. We also strive to maintain ties with local veterans’ organizations, so residents have a chance to give back to veterans in the community.

Luckily for our residents, the city of Las Vegas is deeply supportive of its veterans. Current citywide initiatives include the Mayor’s Challenge Las Vegas, for preventing suicide among service members and veterans, and Hiring Our Heroes, a nationwide effort to connect veterans with employment opportunities.

This Veterans Day, our Sterling Ridge team members will be thanking our veteran residents in numerous ways, from sitting down and listening to their stories, to decorating our hallways with American flags, to inviting residents’ families to celebrate their loved ones’ time in service. Happy Veterans Day!
