Sunrise of Cardiff

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.
