ONTARIO – For Mike Hanigan and Dr. Eric Dahle, the expansion of their Ontario memory care unit can’t happen soon enough.

Hanigan, a former auto dealership owner, and Dahle, an Ontario dentist, are preparing to soon open Sunset Villa, a 16-room center to tend to those with dementia and Alzheimer’s.

The facility is adjacent to Sunset Estates, the original 16-unit care center they opened in 2014 at 281 Sunset Drive. The partners are awaiting final state approval before they open the doors of the new building.

Some of the rooms have already been reserved because the need for such care is significant . . .
