Christina.ALC_NorwoodChristina Ohlson

Executive Director

"I have worked for Sunrise for three years. I started as the Reminiscence Coordinator and then transitioned into the Assisted Living Coordinator.

My favorite part of my Job has to be supporting our families as their loved ones age, need more assistance and become frailer. Everyone hears the expression that it takes a village to raise a child; well it also takes a village to support and care for our aging loved ones. It is so important to me that our families know that they are no longer an island caring for the loved one independently but they are now part of our Sunrise Family and we are all her to support one another. The past part about working at Sunrise is the connections you make with residents and their families. I love when I am able to make a personal connection with a resident and/or family member.

In my spare time you can find me in the kitchen cooking with my daughter or spending time with my parents."

Resident Care Coordinator

"I started my career at Sunrise in 2019 as an Activities & Volunteer Coordinator. As I developed at Sunrise, I had the opportunity to learn more about the dynamics of senior care, which lead me to my current role as the Resident Care Coordinator. My favorite part of working at Sunrise is being able to walk through each residents journey with them. Our residents are such incredible individuals that continue to teach me each and every day. They make me smile and laugh consistently, making each day a little brighter.

The best part of working at Sunrise is the sense of community you feel when you walk through the doors. It’s a home away from home. In my spare time, I enjoy visiting family on Cape Cod and taking my dog, Tuck, hiking and to the beach."

Resident Care Director 

"I have been a geriatric nurse for more than 15 years. I graduated from UMASS Boston with a Bachelors of Science concentrating in Biology and Management Information Systems. In 2005, I obtained my nursing degree at Laboure College. Prior to coming to Sunrise, I worked at a skilled nursing facility as a Director of Nursing Services and have been able to use my knowledge to provide fantastic resident centered care at Sunrise of Norwood. I continuously strive to provide patient-focused care to the aging. In our community, my goal is to work collaboratively with the wellness team and care managers to implement individualized interventions to improve our residents quality of life and champion their way of life.

Every moment in the community I get to connect with and support my team, our families and our residents.

In my spare time, I love to spend time with my family which consists of two teenagers, my husband and my dog. When I have time to myself you can find me painting with oil, pursuing my love of photography or baking delicious treats."
