United Group’s Sun Program Shines For Active Seniors


55+ community designers are in the business of building homes that provide the ambience, resources, and quality of living that residents come to expect for an active lifestyle. Not only are the amenities within a community essential, but the surrounding city should offer accessible services, and entertainment geared towards aging in place. United Group’s Senior Umbrella Network or SUN, is a multifaceted program designed to promote independent, active living within these communities from financial, and healthcare services, to providing social opportunities.  


The term “wellness” isn’t just about the tools seniors need to be physically fit. Wellness encompasses a wide array of topics from lifelong education, being more involved socially, to having an understanding of legal, and financial matters all of which United Group’s SUN program has made a priority.  Active adults from all walks of life choose to live in 55+ communities for the on site services, and amenities many provide, and living amongst fellow age peers lends itself to experiencing fun, and exciting opportunities to meet new people, and to share ideas.  The SUN program was awarded gold by the National Association of Home Builders Best of 55+ Housing Awards, and continues to be the mastermind behind what makes a 55+ community a fulfilling, and secure environment for active adults.  


From the Lodge at BridgeMill in Canton, Georgia that features a restaurant, salon, and gym, to Schyler Commons in Utica, New York complete with its own clubhouse, and swimming pool, nobody understands the needs, and desires of today’s active seniors better than United Group.  55+ active adults have worked hard, and deserve to live a carefree lifestyle where coming home means having their community nurture all aspects of life. It takes a group of like minded individuals to create a neighborhood, but it takes a designer that knows what a neighborhood needs to make it a lifestyle.
