Since July 1, Team Kensington Park has been 100% vaccinated against COVID-19. “Ultimately, it came down to trust. Our team knows we have their backs. We fought tirelessly on the frontlines of COVID together, so when those vaccines came through our doors, we cheered and cried – together,” shares Mary Mell.

At Kensington Park Senior Living, experience equals excellence. “The strength of this community lies in our team’s exceptional tenure within the industry,” says Executive Director Mary Mell, whose 30-year career has been dedicated to caring for aging adults and their families. “Not only do they have years of expertise, but they each have their why: their own personal commitment to serve. That makes the difference.”

Their backgrounds span the senior care spectrum, from skilled nursing, group homes and therapy to advocacy, volunteering and family caregiving, providing a diversity of approach, but one common goal, embodied in the Kensington Park Promise “to love and care for our residents as we do our own families.” Some have longstanding professional and personal relationships; Mell and Olive Grey-Coker, RN, first worked together in 2003. Many recognized an inner calling early on, growing their passion and skillset through after-school jobs at local homes or degrees in gerontology. A few followed in their parents’ footsteps, having had meaningful exposure growing up, while others were inspired by their aging parents’ care journeys. And several began as concierges, housekeepers or care managers and proudly worked to become supervisors, executive directors and founders of their own businesses.

With close to 40 decades of combined experience, a deep camaraderie and a collective wisdom, the Kensington Park team is best in class. “Our shared history, our shared love for seniors – and for each other – compels us to give the best of ourselves to our residents and families every day,” says Mell.
