Sunrise of Guildford

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.

Jennifer Lewis, Deputy Manager


I qualified as a Registered Nurse in 1984 and have worked in the NHS for over 30 years, the latter years as a Modern Matron on a Stroke Rehabilitation and Care of the Elderly Ward. As a qualified nurse I am extremely passionate about delivering exceptional person-centred care to our older population and ensuring our residents have choice, independence and maintain quality of life. I am very proud to be able to be part of such a dedicated team at Guildford in such fabulous surroundings.

Jane Lee-Cross, Activites and Volunteer Coordinator


As Activities and Volunteers Co-ordinator at Sunrise, I have so many different things I want to bring to our residents. Sunrise is a place where you are encouraged to be yourself and to express yourself, whether it is dancing the Charleston, joining the bridge club, or just reading the paper. If you want to do it, you can do it! There are very few jobs that offer the daily satisfaction and fulfilment that mine does. I wouldn’t swap it for anything!

Sam McCarthy, Assisted Living Co-ordinator


The Sunrise principles of service ensure that our residents receive excellent care, which is something I am very passionate about. I have worked in both our assisted living and dementia neighbourhoods and feel very lucky to have met such lovely residents.

I have particularly enjoyed listening to the stories about their interesting lives. My favourite part of my day is when I arrive at work and see the morning smiles on our residents' faces.

Ian Restall, Director of Community Relations


Working at Sunrise is an absolute pleasure. It is so rewarding to see our principles of service being put into action each day: Preserving Dignity, Encouraging Independence, Nurturing the Spirit, Celebrating Individuality, Enabling Freedom of Choice and Involving Friends and Family.

Andreea Fratilla, Associate Director of Community Relations

Starting my career with Sunrise as a carer has given me a invaluable insight into the complexities of delivering genuinely compassionate and professional support to seniors. I now support those families who are making the choice to join Sunrise for the first time. No two sets of circumstances are the same but everyone benefits when the difficult, stressful and emotional process of moving to a new home is made smoother and easier. Sometimes it’s the small things that make the biggest difference.
