Sunrise of Elstree

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.

Debbie Armstrong, General Manager

Debbie Armstrong

I first started working in elderly care in 1986 and have evolved and grown within the sector because of the genuine passion I have to care for the wonder that is our elderly generation. They 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 a strong, experienced 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 of Elstree a happy place to live and work.

Loren Selby, Deputy Manager


I have been a qualified nurse since 2010 and have found a true passion in working with the elderly. I have worked in Sunrise since 2014 and have strived to provide the team with the skills and knowledge to deliver the most effective care for our residents. I am particularly passionate when looking after individuals living with dementia and find this very rewarding. My role as Deputy Manager enables me to support all team members to deliver safe and individualised care to all of our residents whilst treating them with dignity and respect.

Sally Fishwick, Activities Co-ordinator

I have been in the position of Activity Co-ordinator for five years. I very much enjoy learning about our residents' interesting lives and the challenge of rekindling their memories to unlock golden moments in their past, whilst offering a varied and fun activities programme.

Putting together a schedule of events varying from bridge, keep fit, arts and crafts to a quiz or debate to name but a few, keeps me on my toes.

Amanda Dixey, Associate Director of Community Relations


As associate Director of Community Relations, part of my role is to assist and support families and friends in finding the right environment for their parents or loved ones.

I am proud to work as part of a great team for Sunrise of Elstree who deliver highly personalised care in beautiful surroundings in the utmost professional way, showing genuine passion and commitment to all of our Residents and their families.
