Sunrise of Banstead

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.

Suzanne Garston, General & Registered Manager


Every day I walk into my community feeling incredibly proud of the team who work extremely hard to deliver the best care services to my residents.

I feel very blessed to work in such a warm and welcoming environment. The word ‘community’ is the most apt description of Sunrise of Banstead.

Magda Kaleta, Deputy Manager

Banstead - Magda Kaleta I have been working as a Senior Wellbeing Assistant at Sunrise of Banstead for the past 10 years and I have recently been promoted internally to the role of Deputy Manager. I am delighted to be able to use my clinical experience to continue working with the team to ensure that the health and safety of all residents is effectively assessed, planned, implemented and evaluated. I feel privileged to work in such a wonderful community. The dedication and care this team demonstrates every single day, to every single resident, guarantees a warm and loving atmosphere for us all, residents and staff alike. This is not just a job, it's a rewarding way of life.

I have joined Sunrise of Banstead in 2016 as Reminiscence Co-ordinator. Previously worked at Sunrise for 4 years. I feel honoured to be part of such an amazing team who demonstrate love and kindness to our residents. I am really proud to work with such a great team and feel that we can make a difference to make each day meaningful and enhance the quality of life for our residents. I am passionate about person centred care for residents with dementia. Sunrise has enabled me to deliver person-centred care on the daily basis. I really enjoy supporting our residents and their families through their journey with dementia.

Tamara Juckes, Activities Co-ordinator


There are very few jobs that offer the daily satisfaction and fulfilment that mine does!

Seeing the expression on residents’ faces and hearing the enjoyment in their voices as they take part in our daily activities makes me feel immensely proud and content. I wouldn’t swap it for anything!
