"While networking, I got to know the president of the Alzheimer’s Association in Utah. He spoke very highly of Sunrise Senior Living and their commitment to seniors. I specifically remember him saying that “Sunrise knows how to do it right.” I pursued Sunrise because of their reputation in the community, for being dedicated to quality care and caring for their team members. I love the way our residents make me feel with a hello, a smile or a hug. The worries of the day vanish for a moment and what we do is crystal clear."
"The most amazing aspect about being a Health Care Coordinator with Sunrise is getting to know each resident as an individual and becoming a part of their family. Unfortunately, I was unable to grow up under the watchful eyes of grandma and grandpa never knowing my grandparents from either side of my family.
When I stepped through the doors to Sunrise, I truly felt at home and consider myself one of the luckiest gals in the world to now have so many grandmas and grandpas!
It gives me immeasurable pleasure to care for our residents and to be a part of a team that truly believes in the mission to “Champion the Quality of Life for All Seniors.” I have found my true niche in this world and I can’t imagine being anywhere else!"
"When I first walked into Sunrise I noticed how beautiful it was, how nice it smelled and how friendly everyone was to me as a total stranger. I knew I wanted to work here!
Now that I am part of the Sunrise family, the joy I get from being the Reminiscence Coordinator has changed my life. I use the company’s mission, principles of service and core values in my everyday life and I feel that I’m a better person for it."
"As the Activities and Volunteer Coordinator I have the best of both worlds. I get to use my creativity to bring activities to the residents that strengthen their bodies and activate their minds while making them smile. We have a great team here that works hard to keep the balance between what needs to be done and what is fun to do. When my day is over, I know in my heart that I made a difference in the lives of those who live here."
"I love working at Sunrise because I am surrounded by grandparents which I no longer personally have. I know what families are going through as I went through it with my beloved grandma, and this is my way of giving back."
Abel is a born leader! He has a way of communicating with his team members that not only gets the work done, but also earns their respect. He has guided his team to success with his strong work ethic and cheerful disposition. Abel's compassion and patience as a lead care manager is to be admired and we are lucky to have him as a member of the Sunrise family!
Denise has been with Sunrise since May 2010. She started as an overnight care manager, promoted to lead on the night shift; then senior lead care manager being groomed by the ALC to manage schedules, and the ALC backup. Then, this past fall, she became the interim ALC and was promoted to the ALC in May. Denise is a shining example of the progression team members can make internally and she has worked so hard in the past years. She says the best part of her job is the relationship with her team and the opportunity to educate and coach them and help them succeed. Because she has “been there” she says the respect is mutual.
A note from her supervisor, our Reminiscence Coordinator: “Katrina, is one of the hardest working individuals I know. She is the first person to say ‘I’ll do that’ or ‘I will stay.’ Her passion for what she does is evident in the care she provides our residents and her team. Katrina truly ‘champions quality of life for all seniors.’ It is an honor to serve alongside her.“
