Sunrise of Tettenhall

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.

Heather Butler, General Manager

Edgbaston - Heather Butler

I qualified as a registered nurse and spent the early part of my career working in the NHS. I graduated from Birmingham University with an Msc in Health Care Policy and Management.  I have worked as an NHS Modern Matron, managed multiple sites and worked as General Manager for Community Services in Birmingham.

I made the transition to the Private Sector in 2014 when I was appointed as General Manager at Sunrise of Edgbaston. I am delighted to now be working at Sunrise of Tettenhall as General Manager as it gives me the opportunity to lead a team delivering excellent, quality care to some very special seniors.

The team and I are committed to hard work and dedication in order to serve the residents and ensure that the community represents caring and compassionate care within a beautiful environment at Tettenhall.

For dementia, it's extremely important we understand the journey the residents are taking, ensuring we meet their specialist needs.

I strongly believe we can bring joy and fun back into their lives, so our aim is to give them happy experiences and involve their family and friends where possible – retaining independence and supporting their needs.

Jenny Billingsley, Director of Community Relations

My role here is to help and support families through their decision in finding the right care for their loved one.

What I love about working in Tettenhall is that fantastic family feel we have here in the community, and how as a team we cherish, amongst many other values, our residents' dignity, independence and choice.

I feel strongly and passionately about the respect we show our seniors. Sunrise of Tettenhall is a very welcoming community, and I would love to meet you if you or someone you know is starting to think about needing more support and care.
