Sunrise of Purley
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.

I love being part of this Community and seeing the residents enjoying their lives here. I am passionate about supporting the team to be the best they can be and seeing how much joy they bring to the residents makes each day very special.

I am a qualified Nurse with over 30 years experience in this field. I have completed Certified Courses in Psychiatric Nursing and Psychology and have worked in various departments in hospitals caring for patients of all ages.
