"I began my career over 35 years ago in the hospitality field, and started my journey with Sunrise Senior Living as a Dining Services Director in 2013. A hallmark of good hospitality is being warm and welcoming so here at Unionville, I believe in leading a team that goes that little bit further to take the time to make ours residents day the best it can be. Whether it is spending time having a chat and a cup of tea, or encouraging them to join in the many social activities we offer during the day, it is always fulfilling. In my spare time, I still enjoy cooking and entertaining family and friends. When time permits, I like to travel for the cultural history of Europe and Asia, or enjoy a nice beach in the Caribbean."
"In my final few months in university, I started part time with Sunrise as an Activities Assistant during which I discovered that I really enjoyed working with seniors and bringing smiles to their faces. I gained experience in various departments within the company, which led me into this current role as Director of Sales where I am able to bring Sunrise to more families.
My favorite part of the job is hearing everyone’s life stories so we can introduce them to other residents with similar interests, which quickly helps them feel a part of the community. When I’m not working, I like to try out new recipes and foods, and love exploring new places."
"My experience with Sunrise began in 2006 after a college co-op placement evolved into a job opportunity as a front line Care Manager. Sunrise is where I discovered my passion for senior care; and thus made the decision years later to pursue the Assisted Living Coordinator position. I feel rewarded to be part of the Sunrise family and being able to serve all our residents and their families. I believe in the Sunrise Principles of Service and what they encompass. I love working in a team environment and enjoy leading my team to ensure our residents are getting the highest quality of care while ensuring their dignity is preserved and their independence is encouraged.
In my spare time, I love designing and decorating homes."
"I have had the pleasure of working at Sunrise of Unionville since 2005. Working with seniors has been an extremely rewarding experience. The sense of accomplishment I feel every day is indescribable knowing I am making even a slightest difference in our residents and families’ lives. I love working with a team who goes above and beyond every day to provide the best quality of life for our residents. Working with such a caring team brings me lots of joy and satisfaction. In my spare time, I enjoy watching sports and movies, cooking, and spending time with family and friends."
With more than 10 years executive cooking experience for seniors, I joined Sunrise on August 2019 and I was welcomed by the most supportive team. I enjoy working at Sunrise and very happy to be a part of an amazing team that strives to champion the quality of life for our residents.
"My name is Dorothy Richardson, and I am the Activities and Volunteer Coordinator at Sunrise of Unionville. I previously was the Activities and Volunteer Assistant at Sunrise of Richmond Hill. I look forward to coming to Sunrise each day. I love getting to interact with the residents and their families, and I love sharing and learning with them. I wish to help residents feel joyful, purposeful, comfortable, and valued. I believe that every resident should have the opportunity to be in engaged in a variety of activities that are both familiar or new in nature. I truly believe in Sunrise’s Live With Purpose program, and the individualized planning of activities, outings, and events. I am honoured to be able to share these experiences with the residents, family members, and team at Sunrise of Unionville.
In my spare time I like to perform as part of multiple performance groups, bake, paint, garden, and explore the wonderful Canadian outdoors."
"I started with Sunrise over 8 years ago. I started my journey as a server, and then I was given the opportunity to join the concierge team. Over the years, I’ve discovered my passion for senior care, which lead me to become the Reminiscence Coordinator here at Sunrise Of Unionville. I was welcomed with open arms by the most supportive and kindhearted team. I am passionate about helping families and seniors.
As the Reminiscence Coordinator, I find it very rewarding to be able to establish, develop and maintain strong connections with our residents, their family members, and their friends. I believe that these connections and relationships are the best part about working at Sunrise! I love building relationships with others, and watching our residents thrive in our community."
“The great thing about working here at Sunrise is the unity among residents, families and team members. We have a special bond. It’s a home away from home.
I felt a sense of welcome when walked through the front door of Sunrise of Unionville 14 years ago, and I have been encountering that same feeling ever since.”
