Keven J. Bennema - Founder and Co-Owner of Charter Senior Living
I am excited and honored to begin a new journey alongside my family to start Charter Senior Living - a family owned Management Company that will serve seniors, employees and investors. My purpose for starting Charter Senior Living is to provide the highest care and quality of living for seniors with devoted, caring, and engaged employees. We look forward to the years ahead with the Charter Team to positively benefit the lives of our residents, families and employees.
My family and I began our journey in 1993 in Chardon, Ohio while living and working on the grounds of a renowned Nursing Home, Rehab Hospital, and Alzheimer's care facility for 5 years. In the first 9 months, I began my administrator in training (AIT) as a Certified Nursing Assistant where I truly learned the foundation of how to be a servant leader. For the next 4 years, I worked in every department of the community and earned my Nursing Home Administrator license all while completing my MBA, with a concentration in Healthcare Administration, from Cleveland State University. For the next 23 years, I continued my journey in senior living serving as an Executive Director, Regional Director, Vice President to eventually becoming Executive Vice President/Chief Operating Officer of a large Chicago based senior living company.
With the experience I've gained through working in all levels of the Senior Living Industry, I feel called to begin Charter Senior Living to serve our residents and their families in a meaningful way. I am committed to creating an environment where residents flourish under the care of compassionate and well-trained employees. Our primary goal is for each resident to maintain their independence and develop new relationships in a safe community where they are happy to call home.
My family, management team and I are honored and privileged to partner with you or your loved one on this new voyage of life. Thank you for entrusting us and setting sail with Charter Senior Living!
