Welcome to Fountain Square! Let us introduce you to some of the serving hearts who care for our residents. Thank you for stopping by and we look forward to meeting you soon.
"What I value most about Sunrise is the commitment from the team members—from the care managers to the management team—to provide the highest quality of life for our residents while preserving their dignity and respecting their unique individuality. Our Principles of Service at Sunrise are not just words that hang in a frame on a wall, but they are the very foundation of everything we do—and have been since Paul and Terry Klaassen founded Sunrise over 33 years ago. I am humbled by the great responsibility of caring for our Sunrise residents, team members, family, and friends and I work to honor that responsibility each day."
"Senior Living has been my passion for years, largely due to enjoying being a resident advocate and ensuring that residents are receiving the best quality of life possible. I began my career in this field 10 years ago in independent living and never looked back.
Our residents, especially here at Fountain Square, are full of knowledge, experience, culture, and have the most unique histories. I am continuously learning from them. The values and lessons they provide me with daily are irreplaceable. Here at Sunrise, I am beyond myself at the joy that our team members and coordinators have in providing our residents with the quality care and more that they deserve."
Linda began her career with Sunrise as a concierge in 2009. She quickly moved up the Sunrise ladder to her current position as the Business Office Coordinator.
On a daily basis, Linda assists our residents and their families with any billing questions and is always willing to lend a listening ear. She enjoys the friendly resident visitors she receives throughout the day, and is known amongst the residents as a very supportive and compassionate person.
When she’s not at Sunrise, Linda spends her time with her family, including her three dogs: Bae, Leesi and Talia. She also is learning to play the cello.
“My background consists of surgical intensive care, oncology, home health, and administration—with more than 20 years of healthcare experience. I am passionate about our senior population, and enjoy listening to our residents’ experiences and history.
In my free time, I enjoy charity work, reading, cooking, and spending time with my family.”
"I have enjoyed serving seniors for over 7 years starting when I volunteered at my local nursing home. I have a passion for caring for our residents and their loved ones. I love getting know our residents and their stories. I’m proud to work for Sunrise because they truly believe in their mission and core values. We are prepared to care for our residents."
“I love meeting with new families and their loved ones and helping them every step of the way. I’m grateful I get to continue that relationship with them once they move in and join our Sunrise family.
We truly are family—caring for each other on a daily basis. I really appreciate Sunrise’s truly individualized approach to care and that we take such pride in not only preserving our residents’ dignity but in celebrating their unique spirit!”
“My favorite part of working at Sunrise is getting to interact with our residents. Each resident is so unique, with really incredible stories that I love to listen to. It is inspiring to see our residents being treated with respect and dignity, and their uniqueness celebrated every single day. Being able to bring Sunrise to more families, whether it is an immediate need or just educating for the future, is definitely a privilege I don’t take for granted."
"I have worked as a Care Manager at Sunrise for 13 years. It is a beautiful experience as the residents have amazing life histories and I like to bring them joy and make them smile. My daily mission is to provide the best comfort, respect and care to our beloved residents. My favorite activity to lead is the morning exercise circle and I like to bring the residents to the garden to pick flowers and smell the fresh herbs. Helping our residents and going the extra mile is rewarding."
"I am Samar, a mother of two children, and I have been working for Sunrise for over 10 years. I love my job, and look forward to growing and developing even more at Sunrise. It's a joy to build relationships with residents and team members. Sunrise is my second home because of my residents and my team; they are a blessing to me!
“I’ve been working at our community since 2011 as a housekeeper, and the residents fondly call me the ‘Balloon Man’ because I love to decorate my housekeeping cart with balloons for some laughs. My team and I share a deep sense of service to our residents. I believe that when you serve other people, you are serving the Lord Almighty. Beyond my day to day tasks, I also enjoy sharing my natural talents, such as guitar playing and singing, with our residents.” – Gaspar
“I came to Sunrise in 2012 and I just want to say it’s the best job I have ever had. There are unlimited reasons why I believe Sunrise is an amazing place, but the residents are the number one reason why I love my job so much. When I came to the United States from Ethiopia, I had to leave my mom, dad, and siblings behind so my kids could have a better life. With that being said, the residents here give me so much love and wisdom I will forever treasure in my heart.” – Yalem
Meet Fuzz, our Sunrise at Fountain Square community dog. Fuzz joined our Sunrise Family on Halloween in his Superman cape from Happy Tails Animal Sanctuary. He immediately stole our hearts! He has been bringing joy to our residents, team members, families, and guests ever since. Fuzz enjoys belly rubs, chasing his squirrel friends in the courtyard, listening to the residents participate in SingFit, walks, and greeting everyone that walks through the door. He won’t pass up a treat either! It is so wonderful to see how much joy Fuzz brings to so many people, and we welcome you to come in and experience his sweetness, too!
