Sunrise of Flossmoor

Meet the Sunrise of Flossmoor Team

The Sunrise of Flossmoor team has been a pillar in the Homewood-Flossmoor area since 2000. We take an active role in our community, attend local churches and proudly wear our Sunrise name badges. Together, we have raised thousands of research dollars for the Alzheimer’s Association, host support groups focused on caregiver burnout and dementia support, and promote various charities that our residents participate in. We are very proud of our Sunrise family and look forward to meeting you!

Theresa Durkin—4 Years of Service

Executive Director

“I have worked in the industry for 23 years, 22 of them being in independent living because I am passionate in making a difference in my residents’ lives by ensuring that they have the best care possible and opportunities to engage in activities and programming. Our residents have so much history to talk about in their lives, if we make sure to listen. Spending time with our residents shows them how much we value their presence every day.

I wanted to work with a national company that has the same beliefs that I hold for the seniors. I have always believed that everything we do should be in the best interests of our residents, ensuring that we are making their lives joyful and full of people that care about them.”

“Upon joining the Sunrise family, I came from a social services background and have always had the role of “the fixer” in both my professional and personal life. With over a decade of experience at Sunrise, I am blessed to have had the opportunity to make a difference in peoples’ lives every single day. I can’t imagine a better fit for me.

I began by working part-time in Human Resources a million years ago and it was love at first sight. Sunrise was my first experience in working with seniors. Our Flossmoor community has an excellent reputation as a leader in senior care within our area. I am very proud of that and grateful to have such a passionate and caring team!”

Lead Care Manager

“I have been caring for seniors for almost 20 years and have loved every minute of it. I was raised in a very tight family that always respected and cherished their elders. I bring those same morals and values with me to work every day. I have made great friends at Sunrise and developed deep bonds with the residents and their families. It truly is a second family to me.

I wanted to work for an organization that I could be proud of.  From the moment I walked in the door, I knew this was my new home.  I have not been disappointed.”
