“I truly enjoy seeing the residents succeed in activities, and renew their hope, importance and purpose in life. There is a mutual sense of friendship, trust, learning and a closeness that develops from supporting them in their times of happiness and sadness. A resident who is in need of someone to talk to is listened to. Someone who seems sad or confused is comforted. And someone who is happy shares an experience or teaches me something new.”
“I have always loved working with seniors and food is a very important part of our lives. I enjoy building a relationship with our residents and making their meals a special experience. I feel like I am caring for my grandparent every day. That brings me joy every day in the work that I do. I have worked in the kitchen at many different facilities, but I like Sunrise the most because of our quality systems and management. I like working with other team members who have the same philosophy, passion and Joy in Service.”
“I have always had a passion for working with the elderly. My grandparents do not live close by, but through the care I provide daily, I feel like I am caring for my own loved ones. Sunrise gives me the opportunity to care for the elderly, but to also spend more time in getting to know the individual person I am caring for. I learn so much about their lives and personalities. It makes me happy that I can bring joy to a resident’s day in caring for their needs and nurturing their spirit. I like working with other team members who have the same respect that I do about quality of life. It is a nice environment to work in.”
