Opportunities:

As Sunset Home continues to serve in faith, over half of our residents are financially unable to pay the full cost of their care.  Charitable donations help offset the difference between public aid reimbursement and the actual cost of care.  Gifts may be designated for a specific purpose or unrestricted to respond to current and immediate needs.  Charitable funding from private sources is crucial to help sustain our annual operating budget and ministry.

History:

As you enter the front door of Sunset Home in Quincy, IL you immediately enter into the presence of God as you are welcomed and embraced by the loving arms of a spiritually committed staff.  In 1889 Mr. and Mrs. Charles Pfeiffer were led by God to open their home as shelter for the elderly that needed loving care in their final years.  Later the gift of the Pfeiffer’s home coupled with God’s vision of a place where the aging population could live their senior years in a community within the love, care and compassionate arms of Jesus, was accepted and embraced by the St. Louis German Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church becoming the basis of what we know now as Sunset Home. 

Highlights:

Today, Sunset Home is a nonprofit ministry proudly related to the Illinois Great Rivers Conference of The United Methodist Church.  Sunset delivers all levels of senior care in a Christian environment including Skilled Nursing, Intermediate Care, upscale state-of-the-art Short-Term Rehab Center, two Independent Living communities, plus has the largest State Certified Alzheimer’s Unit in Southern Illinois.  Sunset is licensed for 182 beds and employs 220 people.
