We’re welcoming brighter days while continuing to promote health and safety.
Senior Dining Services Coordinator Cruz has worked in the food industry for more than 30 years. His passion for food and for sharing the food of his native Puerto Rico have been key tenets of his career and of his time at Sunrise. This month, Cruz celebrates his 10-year anniversary with the Sunrise family and wanted to share one of his favorite dishes with all of you in honor of that milestone and in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month
Dick and Lorraine are married residents at Sunrise of Grosse Pointe Woods in Michigan. Their smiling faces and names might be familiar because last month they both welcomed their 100th birthdays just a few days apart from each other, ushering them into the ranks of the Sunrise Centenarian Club.
“I cook food that makes you feel like you’re getting a hug from mom,” Chef Daisy says with a smile that automatically puts you at ease. Her face is adorned with thick, plastic glasses and framed with red bandana tied tightly around her hair to keep it in place while she cooks. Her presence is maternal, but you also know she is not to be messed with, especially in the kitchen. As the Director of Dining Services at the newly-opened Sunrise of New Dorp on Staten Island, she has to mean business. The assisted living and memory care community recently welcomed its first residents this month which means Chef Daisy Martinez is about to be a very busy woman.
Leslie Henry joined Sunrise of Granite Run in Media, Pennsylvania nearly eight years ago after her mother’s passing inspired her to go back to school to earn another Bachelor’s degree.
In bidding farewell to 2021, we know we have a lot be grateful for, especially our dedicated team members, our beloved residents, and our supportive families. Everyone in our communities brings unique skills, backgrounds, and perspectives that help shape the Sunrise experience and create wonderfully warm, engaging, and inviting homes.
Happy Thanksgiving! Read a message from our Chief Executive Officer, Jack Callison.
