  • Junior Bowen named a Sunrise Hall of Fame member

    Junior Bowen came to Sunrise Manor Nursing Home as a volunteer in 2000 when his mother became a resident. Even though his mother passed away, he has continued to come to the nursing home daily to visit with residents.

    Junior has developed a wonderful relationship with residents, staff and volunteers over the years. Some residents respond better to Junior than they do to anyone else – and truly miss him when he is not there.

    His 14 years and 15,000 hours of volunteering is another example of the many dedicated volunteers here at Sunrise Manor.

  • Sunrise Volunteers

    Sunrise Volunteers gave Christmas gifts to Sunrise residents and daycare clients. In the past, T-shirts were gifted as a way of cheering up the residents. This past Christmas, we gave T-shirts with the writing, “We are Sunrise.” Residents enjoy and wear these shirts all year long.

    In order to fund these and other gifts for residents, we have a fundraiser or two throughout the year. This year we plan to have a few fundraisers and we welcome your support.
