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 joined Sunrise of Tettenhall as a Deputy Manager in Sep 2020. I am a qualified Nurse by profession and I am really passionate about caring for the elderly. Before joining Sunrise I worked in an another care home within the company since August 2015. Prior to joining Sunrise I enjoyed working in an NHS Hospital in London where I gained my Level6 Mentorship Qualification in Healthcare Practice. I have also achieved my level 5 in Leadership and Management qualification in Health and Social Care in 2019. Originally I gained my Nursing qualification in India back in 2006 and worked there in a cardiac ICU for few years. I believe that there is nothing more rewarding than to be able to care for people in need during the later stages of their lives. When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family and playing cricket.

For dementia, it's extremely important we understand the journey the residents are taking, ensuring we meet their specialist needs.

I strongly believe we can bring joy and fun back into their lives, so our aim is to give them happy experiences and involve their family and friends where possible – retaining independence and supporting their needs.

Sally Millington - Sunrise of Tettenhall - Lead Concierge

Sally Millington, Lead Concierge

I have served this wonderful community since 2006 and my aim is to ensure that customer service reflects the 'old-fashioned' service which our seniors are used to from years gone by. My career originates from the hotel industry where I spent many years as a functions manager/Wedding Coordinator. Customer service is crucial to these services. Front of house here at Tettenhall provides a central point for residents to visit if they need simply pointing in the right direction or to book a hair or chiropody appointment. Residents also stop by for a general chat or even sit at the desk and help with some duties which gives great purpose. I have a team of lovely well trained concierge to ensure the desk is manned each day from 8am – 8pm. We offer a secure environment and are stationed near the main door to ensure all visitors are greeted and looked after to a high standard. We promise to continue high end customer service throughout. "To be excited to come to work is something I always wished for and my wish has been granted"

Sarah-Jane Melling, Therapy Assistant

I am the therapy assistant at Sunrise of Tettenhall, my role is to provide Cognitive stimulation therapy, Reminiscence therapy and Namaste care to individuals with moderate to late stage dementia to maintain good wellbeing. CST is delivered in closed groups of up to 6 residents, twice weekly, for an initial period of 14 weeks and then once weekly maintenance afterwards. Reminiscence therapy is delivered once weekly in small closed groups and its aim is to help individuals with dementia remember events, people and places from their past lives.

John Atkinson - Sunrise of Tettenhall - Resident Ambassador

John, Resident Ambassador

I moved into Sunrise of Tettenhall in December 2018 and I wasn't able to walk or stand, however with all the care and help I am now walking with a walking aid. I moved to Sunrise as I wanted to see a specific doctor in the area and I haven't looked back since. The team members and residents made me feel so welcome, there are quite a number of experiences that have been very good at Sunrise but most of all the care is at a very good standard . The response to covid-19 has been dealt with and communication has been great. I am happy to be here.
