  • At Sunrise, we're committed to bringing meaningful days to all of our residents, including those with memory loss. An important part of doing so is hiring and nurturing compassionate, empathetic team members with a passion for serving others. "You have to hire people who have empathy, and have a really excellent training program whereby they’re well-trained and prepared. It’s not just about coming to a classroom and hearing it, but it’s about how you do it. And there’s a lot of mentoring and support that go into that," said Rita Altman, Sunrise's senior vice president of Memory Care & Program Services.

We recognize the vast contributions that every Sunrise nurse makes.

This year, we presented five nurses with the second-ever Sunrise Nightingale Awards. These awards recognize excellence in nursing and are based on the characteristics exhibited by Florence Nightingale.
