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 Bantick, Registered Manager

Debbie

It is my aim to preserve the self-respect of those who depend on the support of others. I feel that those who live at Sunrise of Frognal should do so with dignity, have the respect of those who support them and be entitled to live a full and active life, given the fundamental right to self determination and individuality within the framework of a residential care setting.

David Clark, Activities and Volunteer Co-ordinator

I have worked for Sunrise at Frognal for 7 years. I came to Sunrise having worked for 6 years as a Training Development Co-ordinator for a national youth charity and I remembered the 'Joy of Service to Seniors' from when I worked as a care assistant during my college years so decided to change from working with minors.

I was attracted to Sunrise because of the principles of service to our residents and since then I often feel like a stick of Blackpool rock (if broken in half you’ll find Sunrise written through me) In my spare time I volunteer and am in charge of a sea cadet headquarters in Dartford where I enjoy canoeing, rowing and other adventurous activities.

Socially my partner and I enjoy country line dancing which I teach to my local community and at home I find gardening relaxing and enjoy spending time with my 12yr old daughter Sara and our pet dog Jack. My proudest achievement is my Honours Degree in Youth Leadership and Management and being presented with the Gold Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.

Rebecca Pearce, Director of Community Relations

I joined the team at Frognal in January 2014, bringing with me more than 18 years experience in health care. I am very happy working within the Sunrise team. I enjoy working closely with residents and their families, from their first call to us through to their move in to our community.

Helping people to make a positive change for themselves, or for a family member, and seeing a new resident flourish and make new friends within the community is very rewarding.

Harry Garston, Director of Community Relations

HarryI joined the team at Sunrise of Frognal in April 2017. I have an extremely rewarding role in guiding and supporting families through what can be a distressing time in choosing somewhere for their loved one to live. I get to spend time with residents and their families before a resident moves in and get to hear all about their interesting pasts. No two days are the same and it makes the job very interesting and varied.
