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.

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.

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.

Conor Leahy - Director of Community Relations

I joined the Sunrise team back in October 2018. I have loved every moment of it ever since. I remember walking through the doors on my very first day and having this amazing feeling as I walked in, I still feel that coming to work today. The best part about my job is making the often stressful and overwhelming process of looking for care easy and stress free for our new families. Seeing our new residents settle into the community and make friends is incredibly rewarding.
