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.

Maureen Ashworth, General Manager

Having worked within private healthcare for several years, I feel privileged to be working within a Sunrise community. I ensure everything we deliver is of an exceptional standard, keeping the care and comfort of our residents paramount.

Being part of a professional and meaningful organisation is a truly rewarding experience.

Catherine Haycock, Assisted Living Co-ordinator

I have made my career in the care sector as I have a real passion for my work. I hold the Registered Manager's award and NVQ Level 4 in Health & Social Care. I also hold the NCFE Level 3 award in End of Life Care.

I believe that all our seniors should be treated with dignity and respect at all times and that we have a duty to provide high standards of care which are person-centred and responsive to the needs of our clients.

We aim to ensure that our residents feel comfortable and supported in a homely atmosphere and that they experience pleasant, happy days despite their challenges.

After working for some time in our Reminiscence neighbourhood, which I have very much enjoyed, I am now enjoying the opportunity of leading our dedicated Assisted Living team.

Sue Cameron, Reminiscence Co-ordinator

As the Reminiscence Co-ordinator at Sunrise of Hale Barns, I am responsible for the care and wellbeing team in the Reminiscence neighbourhood. I joined Sunrise in 2010 and am thoroughly enjoying my position here. It is an honour and a pleasure to care for our residents who live with dementia and it is extremely rewarding to be able to enhance their quality of life.

Ashleigh Lynch, Activities and Volunteer Co-ordinator

Ashleigh

Before starting at Sunrise in November 2014 I previously worked as the Physical Education and Science Co-ordinator in a Cheshire Primary School where I taught. Having enjoyed planning and co-ordinating many whole school events I felt it was time to try a new and exciting challenge as the new Activities and Volunteer Co-ordinator here at Sunrise of Hale Barns.

I believe in creating ambitious and exciting activities and events, which meet all our residents’ needs and interests. Having a hands-on approach, and spending time with each of our residents, I strive to offer a wide range of activities based around our “Mind, Body and Soul” philosophy. We, the Activities team, want to make a difference to our seniors’ lives.

Lorraine Fitzpatrick, Director of Community Relations

Lorraine

My role is to help families with their decision to move into Sunrise of Hale Barns and to offer support at every step of the process. I love working with such a loving team and can proudly say what a wonderful environment we have here for our residents. Sunrise has clear principles for encouraging independence and dignity, plus Sunrise has an outstanding reputation for involving families and encouraging individuality. I wish to invite you and your family in at anytime to have a look at our facilities and to really get a feel of what we have to offer.
