Sunrise of Pikesville is in a quiet rural area surrounded by green space. It's also mere minutes from the heart of Baltimore, giving residents the best of both worlds. Scheduled outings often include Senator Theatre, the Baltimore Museum of Art and Irvin Luckman Park. However, the on-site activities are equally engaging; residents can enjoy a spa day or play bingo with friends. They also have access to late-afternoon poetry sessions, short story readings, and a book club. Snow cones are offered to residents on Fridays, while current events discussions are almost a nightly occurrence. The amenities make it easy for residents to participate in the most enjoyable activities. Weekly laundry and housekeeping, as well as daily trash removal, are provided at Sunrise of Pikesville. This frees residents from worrying about household tasks and allows them to explore some of the more fun components of the community.
