Thirty years ago, Kensington Park became part of a local Kensington neighborhood.
Throughout its first 20 years, six different leadership organizations came and went. Then
Kensington Senior Living, a progressive group of longtime senior living professionals,
assumed ownership. They brought with them a commitment to excellence in service and
care, and a promise to love and care for residents as they do their own family. They upheld
their commitment and their promise, and Kensington Park is flourishing as a result.
Outside, three Victorian-style residences are nestled among eight acres of a lush,
park-like setting and beautifully manicured landscaping. Inside, bright spaces are elegantly
appointed, yet inviting and comfortable. A comprehensive lifestyle spectrum includes
independent living, assisted living and three levels of memory care.
But what makes Kensington Park so unforgettably striking is the warm, genuine
welcome that awaits every guest who crosses the threshold. A sumptuous blend of
expertise, thoughtful regard and kind leadership is impossible to miss.
There is no doubt that what breathes life into Kensington Park is a well-chosen team of
leaders, care specialists and support staff. They are happy, cordial, capable and interested.
They make Kensington Park a feel-good place for residents, their families, each other and
all who visit. It’s no surprise that 25 individuals have been part of the team for over 10 years
and one for 23 years.
“At Kensington Park, we always find or create new ways to entertain, engage and care
for our residents,” says Executive Director Mary Mell. “But we appreciate the comfort
of familiarity, too, especially for those we serve. A staff-that-stays tells us we’re doing
something right, and we’re proud of the results.”
