Barbara RobertsonBarbara Robertson

Executive Director

"It has been my privilege to work for this incredible company and with this amazing team since January 2011. Most of my working career was in Retail Management, with a focus on opening and closing stores, customer service and making sure that everything is done the way it should be. I started my journey into Senior Care in 2004 with the decline of my parents, Dad passing in 2005 and Mom in 2006.

My career with Sunrise of Vancouver saw me starting as Director of Sales and then being promoted to Executive Director in January 2015. Being able to meet with families, that are facing challenges caring for their loved ones is a gift, one that I cherish every day. To be able bring Sunrise to more families, offering help, compassion and support during these difficult times is my passion. To be able to come to work every day, for a company that strives to always be a leader in Senior Care, to be the best that it can possibly be and always works to be better, is a joy. I am truly blessed to surround myself with talented, passionate people daily and to be part of our residents and families journey in life."

Resident Care Director

"I joined the Sunrise of Vancouver team in August of 2017 as the Resident Care Director.

Working as a Registered Nurse for the last 18 years, my experience has been in acute, community & residential care settings, in a variety of nursing roles. Prior to joining Sunrise I had the pleasure of working as an Executive Director & Director of Care for 8 years, focusing on geriatrics & mental health. It is my passion to actively advocate for resident centered care & I believe strongly in Sunrise’s mission “To Champion quality of life for all seniors.”

I was ecstatic to find a company that focuses on the heart of what good quality care is for our seniors. Every day I get to come to work & walk through doors that get it right! Our team raises the bar for Residential Care and challenges everyone around them to do the same.”

Maintenance Coordinator

"I became a part of the Sunrise team in January of 2006. I was an Architect in the Philippines and have a lengthy background in hotels and hospitality. I have become committed to optimizing and maintaining a clean, safe and comfortable environment for all residents, their families, as well as the team members of Sunrise of Vancouver. My passion to serve those in my community is driven not only by Sunrise’s mission to "Champion the quality of life for all Seniors", but also through my own personal and traditional cultural values.

With Sunrise being my second home for these past 14 years, the familial bond that has been established between my fellow team members has motivated me to encourage teamwork and communication, in order to deliver only the highest quality of care for our residents."
