Life Enrichment Team
Within each Sunrise Reminiscence Neighborhood, every memory care resident is assigned a designated Life Enrichment Manager (LEM) who gets to know the resident: their experiences, talents, preferences, and abilities. The LEM then creates a plan to reinforce each resident’s identity and allows them to experience meaning and purpose each day.
LEMs undergo training that helps them assess individual interests and abilities, which can be matched with life skills and activities that tap into implicit and procedural memories.

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.

I smile and say hello every morning to start the residents’ day and mine. A hug or a pat goes a long way. I love telling them stories about my life and listening to their stories.
