See for yourself why Sunshine Gardens is Durango's most trusted senior care team

We take great pride in our resident-centered communities, and look forward to the opportunity to show you our comfortable, home-style living units. Call 970-385-4090 or email us, and our staff will set up an appointment at your convenience.

We offer independent and assisted living accommodations to meet the dynamic needs of Durango seniors. Our comfortable, supportive community accommodates 78 residents with a variety of floor plan options.


Each independent living unit allows individuals to remain autonomous in their own private space. All units on the Sunshine Court cul-de-sac are close to our community dining room and activity areas. Our assisted living facility units provide reliable assistance for seniors who can live in an apartment, but need dependable support.

A comfortable, supportive community

Our design keeps the safety of residents at heart, with no stairs to climb, and handrails in the hallways of communal spaces. Courtyards, patios, and a large gazebo provide beautiful outdoor getaways, and our community is complete with activity and entertainment rooms, card and exercise rooms, a geodome greenhouse, and physical therapy unit.
