Sunrise of Lincoln Park

Meet the Sunrise of Lincoln Park Team

Our team members are truly what make our community “home,” and each valuable member of our team is hired for his or her serving heart and ability to care for our seniors. We’re pleased to introduce you to just a few of the team members who make Sunrise of Lincoln Park such a special place!

“I really enjoy spending time with our residents – brain games, bowling, outings – or just having the time to sit down and talk about their lives, careers, families and interests.

I love working for Sunrise. In fact, I previously worked for another Sunrise community before joining the Lincoln Park team’s location. When my own mother passed, all of the team members, as well as the residents, helped me through a very difficult time of my life, and I’m very grateful for that.”

“I immensely enjoy when the residents regale me with stories from their past. Tales of childhood, family and love are my favorite. Traveling down memory lane with them is a sheer delight. Without a doubt, one of the greatest things about Sunrise is not only our commitment to the residents, but also to each other as team members. Sunrise focuses on the well-being of each of its employees, and stays true to its open-door policy so we are always in communication. The leadership and my co-workers at this community are phenomenal.”

“I feel like in this role I can really address the cognitive needs of my residents. I not only take care of their physical requirements, but can also really get to know them on a personal level, and I feel like I’m of even greater benefit to them for that. I think Sunrise is the leader in Chicago for adults with memory care needs.”

“I like being a part of the residents’ lives. Being able to put a smile on their faces is very rewarding. The most important part about working for Sunrise is the care we’re able to provide for our residents.  Just being able to help them live a happy life and being there for them every day brings us joy. Most of all, seeing them smile when I arrive lets me know that they are happy to see me, too!”

“I love my work with seniors because not only do I learn from them, but I get to help their families as well. My favorite thing to do with our residents is host my signature Wednesday CeCe’s Tea Parties which are held in the Bistro!  As a former Tea Room owner, I enjoy sharing different teas and discussing the history and culture associated with each different kind, and they love it! We also sample baked treats prepared by our residents in our Terrace Club activities! The size of our Sunrise community makes it feel like you are truly a part of a family and right at home.”
