Dix Hills ED Denise

Denise Rinaldi

Executive Director

“I had the pleasure of joining the Sunrise of Dix Hills family recently and am absolutely loving this community. Having the chance to interact with the residents and my fellow team members each day really makes this job so amazing.

The sense of community that Sunrise provides for families, residents, and team members like myself makes this place so special to be a part of.

When I am not working, I enjoy spending my time most with my husband and our son.”

Dix Hill DOS Gino

Gino Veneroso

Director of Sales

"As Director of Sales at Sunrise of Dix Hills, I work directly with families to assist them through the process of finding the right next steps for mom and dad. In today’s world, we have an emergence of what is called the 'sandwich generation' where adult children become overwhelmed from not just caring for their own children but also caring for their aging parents. It is my job to educate and work with these families to help them find a home for mom and dad.
While I spend much time working with hospitals and rehab centers throughout Long Island, I know that my most important role is taking care of our community and its residents and team members. One of my favorite things about my job is the feeling I get when I help families move in their loved one. Along with that, I love seeing the interactions between families and residents—engaging with everything and everyone around them in so many positive ways.

In my free time, I enjoy going to the gym, reading, traveling with my girlfriend, and volunteering at local VA hospitals.”

Kristi Wor

Resident Care Director

“Prior to joining Sunrise of Dix Hills in 2003, I worked in long-term care at a nursing home.

I love working at Sunrise because of all of the people that I get to meet. With every new move-in, I get the chance to meet so many new friendly faces. I feel fortunate to work so closely with an amazing group of team members each day.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, traveling, and sports.”
