Brighton Gardens of Tampa

Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitative Care

Brighton Gardens of Tampa is a five-star community in the Carrollwood area of Tampa, Florida, that provides 24-hour skilled nursing care. Using a relationship-based care model, our mission is to champion quality of life for all seniors.

It is through the accomplishments of our residents in meeting their goals and enjoying every day that our success is demonstrated. We pride ourselves in our small, home-like environment that preserves dignity, celebrates individuality and nurtures the spirit.

Sunrise CareConnect–an electronic heath record system–can be found in most communities, enabling us to better coordinate care, reduce risk, and improve resident outcomes.
As a resident’s healthcare provider,  you can be granted access to Sunrise CareConnect to track your patient.

Each Sunrise community has a Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement (QAPI) program and committee that analyzes trend data, and evaluates systems and processes to improve delivery of care and resident outcomes. Learn more at

Executive Director

"I have worked with Sunrise Senior Living since 2014 and I have been a licensed nursing home administrator since 1991.  
My favorite part of working with Brighton Gardens is our residents and their amazing stories and history that they so willingly share with us on a daily basis. It’s like we get the opportunity to share a piece of their life with them. Working for a company like Sunrise enables me, as a leader, to have the opportunity to spend time sharing with our team- that means the world to me in making a difference to others.

We have the best team of employees that I have ever worked with anywhere. Knowing that I get to work with such a caring and dedicated group of individuals is personally rewarding each day as I often say I “get” to go to work—I don’t “have” to go to work. I would be honored to have our care staff care for my own parents. 

In my spare time, I am on a bowling league each week and have been for some time. I golf, but my passion is truly my family and traveling. I love to experience other cultures and opportunities, regardless of what or where they may take me."

Arlene Clarke

Certified Nursing Assistant

"Caring for others is a concept long lived by Arlene. Since her youth, Arlene has been a caregiver for her father and grandmother, and she has been a Certified Nursing Assistant for twenty two years. The thing she loves most about her role at Sunrise is to see the look of appreciation on the faces of the residents when they receive care.

She can tell when her residents have better days than others without a spoken word. Because her bond with her residents is so strong, she is able to effectively communicate their needs to families and for that, our residents and families are grateful. Arlene loves her team at Sunrise, especially getting to know people from other cultures."

Jandi PrinsJandi Prins

She loves her job and the most rewarding part of her responsibility is the generation we serve. She loves to hear the stories our residents share, as they come from so many interesting backgrounds. Jandi loves Sunrise because coming to work feels like being with family. She credits her team members to be amazing and with a great sense of leadership."
