Mary’s Message: So Much to be Grateful For

Dear Residents, Families and Friends,

Mary Mell Headshot 2017November: a time of gratitude, which by most measures is defined as a feeling of thankfulness! Our team at Kensington Park would like to say thank you for being part of our family and enriching our lives. We love caring for your families and we look forward to spending some quality time together with you over the holidays.

We would like to take this month to honor our Veterans and give special recognition to those who currently serve and to those who have served in our Armed Forces. We are grateful for your sacrifices that keep us safe and secure. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Please see our calendars for our special Veterans events being held across campus.

A special thank you to all those who joined us for the fight against Alzheimer’s as we walked to end the terrible disease. Kensington Park raised over $13,000 with a group of 55 walkers, our biggest team ever. We enjoyed our time together and we are looking to double our fundraising goal for next year. We are still accepting donations through the end of this year and if you would like to donate, please click on the following link: A note of thanks goes out to Betsy Davis, Move-In Coordinator, who was instrumental in making this happen. Thanks again, Betsy!

An additional gesture of thanks: our residents at Kensington Park established an Employee Appreciation Fund to recognize the hard work and dedication of our hourly team members. This has given our residents and family members an opportunity to express their appreciation without affecting the “no tipping” policy. Correspondence has been sent by email and will be sent by regular mail with the details. If you would like further information, please contact Letty Diai by email at or by telephone at 301-946-7700.

We will be busy this month with many activities and holiday cheer so please check out our calendars on our website at We so look forward to gathering around the table to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday with you!

Again, thank you for all your continued support, feedback and great comments about our team. We are honored to be able to care for all of you. Feel free to contact me at any time via email or telephone at 301-946-7700.

Warmly, Mary
