Executive Director

"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."

Sandra Persaud

Assisted Living Coordinator

"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."

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."

Activities and Volunteer Coordinator

"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."

Reminiscence Coordinator

"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.”

Designated Care Manager

“Being part of the Sunrise team is such a rewarding experience and, during the past 10 years, I have come to know this beautiful community as my second home.

I’m proud of the choices Sunrise offers its residents.  Some of our residents can no longer do things they used to do, but that doesn’t mean that they should not have a voice.  I love that I am given the time and opportunity to offer my residents choices:  red vs. white wine, red vs. blue shirt or steak vs. chicken – no matter the scenario, it is always their choice.”
