"Sunrise embraces all the comforts of home, and our communities are designed to provide a warm and supportive environment for all of our residents to enjoy," said Laura McDuffie, chief operating officer for Sunrise. "We are pleased to partner once again with Emily Henderson, who is celebrated for her ability to create comfortable and personal spaces, to makeover one lucky resident's suite." 

Emily Henderson added, "I am excited to continue my partnership with Sunrise, and in particular, work closely with the winning resident and their family to help their personality shine throughout their suite.
