Management Team

At Bel Rae, we understand the impact that care providers make for you and your loved one, and we honor your trust. We select individuals who view senior care as their calling and build positive environments for our community to thrive. 

Familiar Faces

Bel Rae hires our own care providers, who join our devoted team to care for residents on a daily basis at an individual level. Whether designing a group activity or preparing a home-style meal requested by a resident, our associates combine compassion, integrity, and medical knowledge to serve and support residents as we would our own family.  

Devoted to You

The Bel Rae management team takes great care to uphold residents’ independence and well-being. No matter your needs—from medication management to activities of daily living—we are here for you, 24-hours a day, every day of the week. We have a dedicated Life Enrichment Director and Licensed Nurse Manager who’ll plan and coordinate daily activities that stimulate memory and help residents live full lives. A licensed RN is available to design a lifestyle tailored to Assisted Living and Memory Care residents. All of our associates handle daily interactions in a calm and reassuring manner, providing a listening ear and cheerful smile.
