"I love coming to work every morning and seeing our residents thrive in a place they call Home. Sunrise truly stands behind its mission of championing quality of life for all seniors, and I see it every single day in a way our Care Managers provide individualized support to our residents in a compassionate, safe and nurturing manner. I feel honored to be a part of the Sunrise team!"

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."

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."

Medication Care Manager

“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.”
