For those seeking a spiritual connection, many communities offer weekly worship services and Bible studies that will allow you to engage in your religious practice and find community.

At Sonida, your pet is part of our family too

Recognizing the important role that pets play in our lives, many of our communities offer a welcoming environment for small pets, ensuring that residents don’t have to part with their beloved furry companions. 

Additionally, we understand the therapeutic benefits animals can bring, which is why many locations arrange for regular visits from therapy animals. These visits not only bring joy and comfort to our residents but also contribute to their emotional and psychological well-being, making our communities truly feel like home.
