Meet The Leaders of The Solana Marlboro Assisted Living Who Served as the Safety Net During COVID Crisis.

Jamie showed early promise as a college intern working at our Montville community. Upon graduating from Penn State with her bachelor’s degree in Health Policy and Administration, she was hired as an Assisted Living Coordinator at the Chelsea at Montville. During this period, she was accepted into the Chelsea Executive Director In-Training program and earned her Certified Assisted Living Administrator (CALA) certification. Jamie’s quick rise to the position of Executive Director at our Marlboro community is evidence of her professionalism and dedication to the senior living model.

Outside of work, Jamie has a lifelong love of dancing, including contemporary, ballet and tap. She also enjoys travelling and spend time with her friends and family.

Vivian is proud to share that she works with a team of nurses at The Chelsea at Fanwood who truly understand continuity of care. Knowledge, communication and heart make the residents comfortable in a safe environment at all times.

Vivian’s love for humanity, especially special needs children and the elderly, is what inspired her to become a nurse. Being very mindful about the care she provides, she holds herself to a high standard and, likewise, her staff. Attention to detail is a key part of her job, as is ensuring that her team members excel as they provide care to our residents.

In her free time, Vivian loves to travel and is honored to work with organizations that assist less privileged children.

Sam’s affinity for the older population began while spending time with her grandmother and great aunts. She brings lots of warmth to our community and extensive experience in the kinds of activities that enrich the lives of our residents.

Sam started with Chelsea as a Lifestyles Director in 2018 and quickly became an essential part of the team.  Sam naturally progressed into becoming a part of the sales process for The Chelsea at Warren and brings a positive attitude and passion for her work to the Chelsea at Solana Marlboro.

Outside of work, Sam enjoys baking, cooking and listening to podcasts. She resides in South Plainfield.

Now Is a Good Time to Move Into Assisted Living

“We have seen the worst of the pandemic and worked very hard to make the Assisted Living
experience safe. We are now at the point where we have rigorous safety protocols in place to ensure those entering our buildings are disease-free, and those who live and work in them are frequently tested and monitored. COME TO OUR COMMUNITY WITH CONFIDENCE. Whether it’s an exploratory tour or a new move-in, we hope that you can put your trust in us to care for your loved ones. We are currently allowing limited visits by appointment with social distancing and masks and have had a number of successful move-ins over the tment with social distancing and masks and have had a number of successful move-ins over the summer.”
