Sunrise of Beaconsfield

Meet Our Team

One of the reasons why every Sunrise home is much more than just a care home is the team of people working there. Every hour of every day, Sunrise team members are working to make sure that our residents enjoy life as fully as possible. Here are just a few of the people you’ll find at your local Sunrise care home.

Emma Franklin, General Manager

EmmaI first started working in elderly care in 1995 and I have enjoyed working for Sunrise for the past 11 years. I have a passion for working within the care sector because of the genuine passion I have to care & for the wonder that is our elderly generation. I do believe that all of our residents deserve nothing but the best and as General Manager at Sunrise it is my responsibility to provide strong and focused leadership to ensure the highest standards of care are delivered. I have an extremely caring and enthusiastic management team who support me to promote good education, guidance and enthusiasm to all team members working within the community. It is my responsibility to ensure that the community remains compliant, effective, treats our residents with respect and dignity and most of all makes Sunrise.

Tomek Szkutnik, Deputy Manager

Tomek SzkutnikI have been directly involved in care work for over 12 years. My path through the care industry has led me on the journey that has enabled me to work in award winning homes. I love bringing people together, sharing light-hearted 'banter' and ensuring every team I work with, are highly motivated in order to provide the best possible care. Working in care can be demanding yet very rewarding at the same time. Supporting and developing the right people, makes it all the more enjoyable. I am thrilled and excited to be part of the team at Sunrise and I look forward to long lasting career.

At Sunrise Beaconsfield my job fills a large part of my life. I am truly passionate about my role and believe in what we do. Our residents are our teachers and their life stories inspire me. Every day we strive to work with our residents and their families to provide person-centred care of a very high standard. My team and I in Reminiscence are dedicated to our residents, and their care is paramount. There is a homely environment, a lovely ambience and activities to stimulate our residents each day.

Samantha Wells, Activities and Volunteer Co-ordinator

Samantha

I joined Sunrise in 2015, am a qualified counsellor and now as Activities and Volunteer Co-ordinator I have the responsibility of organising the monthly activities calendars.  This entails providing a variety of activities from our “Live with Purpose” programme which will engage, entertain and stimulate our residents incorporating ‘mind, body and soul’.  We also arrange bus trips to special events, entertainment and weekly outings. 

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing our residents smiling and laughing and having a good time.

Shila Odedra Silvera - Director of Community Relations

Shila

I love being the first contact for families looking for care, it's a real honour to show our very beautiful community and introduce our amazing team. I take very seriously my responsibility to learn as much as I can about potential residents and to ensure that they and their families are armed with everything they need to make the very important and difficult decision of where their loved one will be happiest and best cared for. 

The best part of the day is when I take a break and spend some time with our wonderful residents, they have so much to give and I take all the wisdom and affection I can get before launching myself back into work.

Karen McLean, Assisted Living Co-ordinator

I have been working for Sunrise since 2011, when I started a carer on the night shift and have progressed through different job roles in the community. Sunrise have given me the support and training to achieve this. Our residents have such great characters and no two days are the same. I am backed by a fantastic team who deliver great all round care for all our residents incorporating mind, body and soul.
