Chief Care Officer
Sunny is a distinguished business leader with an MBA from the University of Michigan and undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from IIT Delhi. After spending over two decades helping high tech companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Adobe,and Ebay with their growth strategies, he decided to spend the rest of his career doing something that is meaningful and fulfilling to him and his family.
He and his wife grew up in India, and their parents still live in Delhi. Given the thousands of miles separating them, they could not spend the quality time caring for their folks. They decided to take an approach to pay forward, by sharing their love and care with the residents at the Del Monte. He took the plunge to dedicate his life to this cause..
In his humble opinion, every facility provides care to the residents, but what residents really need is love, affection and a purpose. Under his leadership, lots of new activities have been incorporated, including but not limited to, trips to the beach, shopping mall excursions, weekly BBQs, monthly birthday brunches,sculpting, gardening, yoga, and live music performances amongst many others. He has also introduced a lot of volunteer programs. There are weekly fun activities where staff will bring their children to interact with the residents. His goal is to create a warm and inviting atmosphere where residents feel at home. And that is the Del Monte difference.
