"I began as a Reminiscence Coordinator at Sunrise at Fox Hill in April 2018. I help caregivers, families and health care professionals with direct care responsibilities for residents with Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Before becoming a reminiscence coordinator, I started working as an Assisted Living Manager since 2013 providing overall leadership, medication management, and I supervised residents and care staff within 2 communities located in Silver Spring MD. Prior to this, I spent six years as a Doctor of Naturopathy in Complementary and Alternative Medicine in the Philippines and Australia.
My favorite part of my job is crafting and maintaining an atmosphere of warmth towards the residents while connecting with their family. The best part is spending time conversing with the residents getting to know them and being part of their life and legacy. Working with Sunrise has showed me the real passion of care and preserving our resident’s choices and dignity.
In my free time, I enjoy photography, traveling, and planning small events for family and friends. I also enjoy reading books and creating memories."
"I have been a caregiver since 2007. I have worked in various Skilled Nursing Homes and volunteered often at Lakewood Hospital in Ohio before moving to Maryland. I continued my passion of providing the best care to our residents at Fox Hill where I became a Lead Care Manager, Med-Tech, Wellness Assistant, and now a Coordinator. As a Reminiscence Coordinator I truly enjoy forming amazing and lasting relationships with residents and family.
My favorite part is coming in each day and getting to sit with the residents and talking to them at any given time of the day including at meals where they love to socialize. A resident once said to me 'If you’re quiet enough… you can learn A LOT.' That couldn’t be any truer!
The best part about working for Sunrise is the family like environment. Each person you see walking the halls is always greeting someone with a smile on their face regardless of who it is and that speaks volumes all in itself. Here at Fox Hill, there is always opportunities to grow and it has been amazing experience to see others like myself do the same.
In my spare time, I enjoy crabbing during the Summer, reading and doing all things beauty related and spending time with family."
“Prior to Sunrise, I worked as a medical-surgical nurse for older adults at the Washington Hospital. I also did my internship at Sunrise Senior Living in Arlington, Virginia. I love working at Sunrise because it allows me to care for all my residents, just as I had cared for my late father; it is rewarding to know I’m making a difference.
“I have been with Sunrise since November 2015. I became a CNA in 2004 and an LPN in 2008. When I became a registered nurse in 2010, my first nursing job was in the Newborn Intensive Care. From there I transitioned to Adult Intensive Care for three years until I became the director of nursing at a 170-bed assisted living facility in Duluth, MN. I was there for two years before coming to Maryland.
As RCD, I love forming these amazing relationships with the residents and families. Every day is such a gift and I’ve learned immensely from those I care for. I love being able to learn from those who are older and wiser than myself. They all have so much to share with us if we are willing to sit down and listen.
I enjoy the family atmosphere here at Sunrise. The people are friendly and anyone who comes here can feel that everyone who works here does it because they love it. Everyone cares for one another which in turn makes it so much more fulfilling to care for the residents. The learning and training opportunities are endless and I can feel confident that I work for a company whose values align with my own.
