Sunrise of Cardiff

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.

Liz Williams, General Manager


My background is in nursing and I have been fortunate in my career to enjoy a range of employment within both the clinical and care sectors. I joined Sunrise at the beginning of this year and am thrilled to be leading a highly professional, dedicated and motivated team.

Each and every day without exception our team provides outstanding care espousing our core values including Respect, Trust, and Joy in Service for our residents. It is so rewarding to see our residents enjoying every day here with good friends, good food and a vibrant activities programme.

Michelle Swindenbank, Assisted Living Co-ordinator and Registered Manager

As Assisted Living Co-ordinator I have the wonderful position of being able to see and spend time with residents on an individual basis. Every day is different in my role and it’s the uniqueness of each individual that never ceases to bring me great satisfaction, whether its being able to help deal with any issues, or just sharing some special private time.

These individuals are my greatest teachers. As Registered Manager I am part of a robust team who work hard together to ensure Sunrise of Cardiff adheres to the regulations stipulated by CSSIW (Care & Social Services Inspectorate Wales) to ensure the community is a centre of excellence.

Danny Langhorn, Reminiscence Co-ordinator 


As Reminiscence Coordinator I am privileged to be able to assist people living with dementia on a daily basis .  I have been working in the Reminiscence neighbourhood at Sunrise of Cardiff for six years and  was part of the Cardiff team that won the Best Dementia Team at the Dementia Awards in 2014. 

It is great to work with such a loving team and really strive to provide excellent person centred care and really promote the ethos of seeing the person not the dementia. As a team we really believe that we are able to make a difference and provide a high quality of life for all our residents. 

Dorothy Wright, Activities Co-ordinator


As Activities Co-ordinator I am responsible for creating a full and varied mix of events, outings and activities for our residents to enjoy.

We have such talented people within our community and it is wonderful to be able to show these talents off with art classes, flower arranging, cake decorating, quizzes and talks to name but a few of the many, many things we offer.

Non-residents are always welcome to come and join in with us so please feel free to pop in – we guarantee a warm welcome!

Elisabeth May, Director of Community Relations


As part of my role I meet with people who are looking towards the future for either themselves or for a loved one.

I am so proud to be able to show everything which Sunrise has to offer: our beautiful community and gardens, the fantastic room options, activities and entertainment, wonderful dining and outstanding care.

The reward of seeing how people thrive once they have moved in with us is absolutely priceless.
