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.
Susan has been at the community since April 2012 and says she loves her job as Life Enrichment Manager because she is able to fulfill our mission of championing the quality of life for all seniors. She says the residents are like family and she does her very best to enrich their lives every day.
Susan says a walk outdoors with the residents is a great way to get conversations flowing as well as a chance to exercise and enjoy some fresh air. She also assists residents in setting the tables and folding linens, which she says helps them feel helpful and part of a family. “It always seems that we are one big happy family here at Sunrise of Unionville.”
“As ‘Captain Team Spirit’ during our super hero theme day, Susan was a hit! She helped our team win the overall summer events and got all our residents involved too! Our residents absolutely love Sue!”
– Andrea, Reminiscence Coordinator
“Susan is hard-working and dedicated. She is very dedicated to Sunrise and our mission. She understands and is aware of our residents and their needs. She sees a resident and is in tune with what they want at that time and does her best to fulfill their wishes.”
– Jodron, Medication Care Manager
