It takes a lot of dedicated people to keep Capital Manor the happy, thriving place it is. Fortunately, we have these people! Residents and staff quickly come to see each other as family – which is why so many of our staff have been working here for more than 10, 20 and 30 years.
Here is some background on our leadership team.

Providing a quality life for seniors is David’s passion. He’s been a leader in the senior living industry for more than 20 years, and is licensed as a Nursing Home Administrator and certified as an ALF/RCF Administrator.
