Sima Dost

Reminiscence Coordinator

“Spending time with or residents is the best part of my day. My mom suffered from dementia for five years. I took care of her during that time and it helped me to understand what the residents and families are going through. I’m here not just for the residents, but also to support the families and my fellow team members as well. I’m fortunate to be able to step out of my office and see that I’ve changed my residents’ lives by being there for them on their good and bad days. To me, my residents are unique and perfect in so many ways, and I’m honored to be a part of their lives.

In my 21 years with Sunrise, the organization has given me so many opportunities. I’ve grown through trainings, support and experience. Sunrise has helped my team to truly see the joy in every day.”

Lead Care Manager

“I enjoy working with Sunrise. I love the work I do and I love the residents. I enjoy working with the other team members. I left for a little while and came back in 2007 because I missed the relationships I had built with the residents. We are all here to care for the residents when they really are in need. We become like a family. We want our residents to feel at home in our community and to be treated with respect.”

Lead Care Manager for Reminiscence Neighborhood

“I enjoy spending time with the residents. When I’m with the residents, it feels like I’m at home with my family. We help them out with their daily lives and we are here to support them. My favorite thing is seeing the smiles on their faces when I pamper them with a manicure!

Sunrise is different because it really feels like a family at home. The residents and families are able to enjoy the comforts of their own homes here in our community. I used to work as a home care aide and I prefer to work with my strong team members. We are close-knit and here to support each other.”
