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.

Karen Shingler, Assisted Living Co-ordinator

I joined the team at Bramhall in September 2015 as an Assisted Living Co-ordinator. I have an extensive clinical and managerial career as a senior nurse working in the NHS. It was particularly refreshing when joining the organisation that their main focus was to ensure that residents received high quality dignified care which, as a nurse, I have always promoted. I am a vegetarian with a passion for animals and the amount I have would be too exhaustive to list. The management and clinical team are well integrated with a joint passion to promote the wellbeing of the residents.

Josie Turner, Reminiscence Co-ordinator

My name is Josie Turner, it was my pleasure to join the Sunrise team in April 2017, having gained over ten years' experience caring for residents at all stages of dementia and managing large teams of staff at previous care homes. I consider it fundamental to the well being of our residents that they should receive the best in care and respect to enable each one to fulfil an active and stimulating life and I have a firm belief in establishing and maintaining close and cordial relationships with their family and friends. I will always work hard to ensure the Reminiscence team at Sunrise continue their commitment to ensuring the contentment of those we look after. I am married with three children, a spaniel and I'm a vegetarian.

Bethan Wild, Activities and Volunteers Co-ordinator

Bethan

I have been with Sunrise at the community Bramhall since January 2011, having started as an Activities Assistant. In 2016 I felt it was time to step up in an exciting new role as the new Activities and Volunteer Co-ordinator, and enjoy every moment of my day here at Sunrise of Bramhall.  My aim is to fulfil each residents day by planning and delivering six activities each day mind, body and spirit with the Activities team for the residents to show off their various talents and knowledge or bringing new experiences to our community. 

We also arrange special events, entertainment and trips out each week and I am passionate about supporting older people to live life to the full, whether it be hobbies and interests from the past or by bringing new experiences to them. It is so very rewarding to see our residents smiling and laughing each day.

Dawn Williams, Director of Community Relations

As the first point of contact for families enquiring about Sunrise, I enjoy being able to work with families to deliver the bespoke service which Sunrise offers – that's what makes Sunrise a special place. The most rewarding aspect is supporting families and seniors and being able to support them during what can be an emotional experience.

I feel privileged to help in the journey towards the decision to join our community and then, seeing new residents flourish and make new friends, is the ultimate reward.

Lina Baker, Director of Community Relations

As a Director of Community Relations, my main priority at Sunrise Senior Living is to ensure that the families who choose our community as their new home are comfortable with their decision, understand their choices and are happy with what will become a new, yet exciting journey in their lives. Being a loving wife of compassionate nature myself, I enjoy nothing more than assisting and supporting the families and their loved ones in what can sometimes be an uneasy time. I will always endeavour to ensure that all questions are answered and any worries settled beforehand and that upon joining our beautiful Sunrise community, our seniors enjoy the quality of life they truly deserve.
