MelanieMelanie Pereira

Executive Director

"I have been in sales for over 20 years but my most rewarding and loved role in my career has been in Senior Living. Being a part of an organization that truly champions the quality of life for all seniors has been incredibly impacting.

The cornerstone of our care model is that each of our Residents are treated with dignity and value, regardless of their cognitive or physical limitations. These last few years at Sunrise of Mississauga have been an absolute joy as I am provided the opportunity to introduce our industry leading care to families and influencers in our community. Watching our Residents live such fulfilled lives and live with purpose once again is so very rewarding. I am honoured to consider Sunrise of Mississauga my second home."

"I have been working with seniors for 5 years and my experience with Sunrise has been very enriching, knowing I share the same values as Sunrise’s Principles of Service of celebrating individuality and encouraging freedom of choice.  Sunrise has now become my second home. The sense of accomplishment I feel every day is indescribable knowing I am making even a slightest difference in our residents and families’ lives. It is truly an honor to join their journey and collaborating with their families in touching their lives just as they have touched ours."
