Kelsey Daniell

The Preserve, a skilled nursing, assisted living and memory care community in Fort Myers, has hired Kelsey Daniell as the life enrichment director.

In this position, Daniell will develop and deliver daily programs of individual and group activities so residents can engage in cultural, spiritual, environmental, physical, intellectual, emotional, social and civic activities. This will help sustain and promote each resident’s potential, happiness and sense of usefulness to self and others.

The Preserve, which is operated by the nonprofit Volunteers of America National Services, offers private skilled nursing suites for senior residents with specialized or advanced health care needs, as well as boutique assisted living apartments and memory support suites.

Daniell graduated from Florida International University and is a certified recreational therapist, which has led her to equestrian work, dance and fitness training. She has over seven years of experience working in healthcare.
“We know Kelsey will provide our residents with quality care and enriching activities, which is a key goal of our community,” said Ryan Keller, executive director at The Preserve. “We are happy to welcome her to our team and know she will be an asset at The Preserve.”

    Hi Kelsey,
    I am a bit late to your party! I was just giving you a chance to settle into your new position 😉
    I know that you and your team will create activities and routines that will honor the elders and will truly enrich their lives and spirits in meaningful ways.
    Your gifts are as essential to the health of the residents, as the medical treatment that they may receive.
    By now, you probably met my mom, Ellie DeRosa, in fact, you may have been on her care plan call last month.
    Thank you for all the care that you provide!
    My Mom and our family are grateful that you, the Preserve leadership and the CarePartners, value that the joys of our lives have nothing to do with age.
    We wish you all the best!
    Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
