Welcome to Sunshine Meadows Retirement Community! The Sunshine Home provides a place where older persons may live with the companionship of others and provides a setting where involvement is planned and encouraged both within the residence and in the community-at- large. The Sunshine Home believes that elderly have a right to live with dignity, independence, and security in a safe, wholesome Christian environment. As caregivers we believe in doing more than just giving care to our residents, we care about them.
The Buhler Sunshine Home history started in January of 1945 with the vision of the Buhler Mennonite Brethren Church to expand its ministries to its elderly members. The original building purchased was a large three-story home located at 312 South Dirks Street. The Sunshine Home evolved into a 50 bed licensed facility with major expansions of nursing wings in 1954 and with the center and west wings built in 1960. In 1977 two new nursing wings were added and soon afterwards the facility became a Medicaid provider. The Sunshine Villa was completed in 1985 providing 11 one bedroom independent living apartments. In the Fall of 1993, groundbreaking was held for the beginning of a new retirement community entitled Sunshine Meadows. This extended campus consists of 4 duplex units and 19 Crongregate Living Apartments and 28 Assisted Living Apartments. A new nursing wing was completed in 1994, increasing the capacity to 60 intermediate health care beds. In 2007, the 200 hall was remodeled and additional space added to accommodate the new Memory Care Unit, which is a part of the nursing facility.
