The Park Danforth has an excellent reputation throughout the region, not only for the high quality of life we offer, but for the genuine caring we show all of our residents.
That reputation is due in large part to the people our residents interact with every day. The Park Danforth staff serves residents with equal measures of love and skill, resulting in a place called "home".
When new residents move here, they're met with unassuming expertise. Unashamed empathy. Unparalleled service. It impacts their lives every day, making them richer, happier, more satisfying.
On this page we'll share profiles and photos of some of our key staffers:
Kelley Hartman, Director - Resident Services
Kelley brings with her many years of experience and The Park Danforth is lucky to have her!
"I graduated from The University of Southern Maine with a degree in Social Work and a Mental Health Certification. Before coming to TPD I worked as a Resident Services Coordinator with Preservation Management Inc. I also serve as Secretary on the board of Maine Resident Services Coordinator Association (MRSCA)!
The Park Danforth has a special place in my heart as my grandmother lived here for three years. During one of our last conversations she had told me that I should come work at Park Danforth. About a month after she passed away during a MRSCA board meeting Annette announced she was retiring to which I quickly asked HOW DO I APPLY??!! I believe I was truly meant to be working here, and I am so honored to be part of such an amazing community!
Outside of work I have two children and a husband. I have been married for 11 years and have a 10 year old son named Owen-he enjoys Karate, swimming, Pokémon, Harry Potter, and being with friends. My daughter Gracelyn is 4 years old and she enjoys swimming, singing, acting, and dancing (she is going to be a piece of Navy Blue Chalk in Mary Poppins)!"
The staff at The Park Danforth was awesome at giving my sister the support and comfort she needed to feel like she belonged. Along with supporting my sister, they also supported me in this transition. I feel like I can be a sister again instead of a caregiver!
