Kristopher & Chelsea Chana


My wife, Chelsea and I founded Chelsea Place in 2011 and “Yes!” I named it after her. We were fresh out of college and barely old enough to have an adult beverage. I was 23 and Chelsea was 21. Before Chelsea Place, I made a brief attempt to pursue a career in the financial services industry, however, it was short-lived, unfulfilling and quite boring to be honest. (No offense to my finance friends! lol)

Chelsea and I opened Chelsea Place “Retirement Resort Living,” an assisted living community located in Port Charlotte, FL. We decorated it in coastal colors and made it feel like a cute little cottage from the Florida Keys!

One thing you may not know is that when we returned from our honeymoon, we actually moved into our assisted living facility. We lived there for the first 3.5 years of our marriage. In fact, we were the youngest newlyweds to own, operate and live in assisted living. Our residents were our family! Chelsea learned how to crochet, I learned how to cook and together we made it work.

Fast forward 8 years and that passion has not gone away. It has grown so big that I’m not just passionate about what we do, I’m obsessed with it! Together and with an amazing team, we are changing the future of senior care!!

We are on a mission to transform lives, give seniors a sense of purpose and belonging, a desire to live a full and happy life, provide hope, meaningful connections and to share God’s love for them!! At this age, our seniors need purpose and a sense of belonging more than any other time in their life!!!

In addition to Chelsea Place, we have created SeniorSource.com which is the #1 Educational Resource on Senior Care. This program is based on our 5 Step Guide to Senior Care which helps families easily navigate the complex world of senior services. Utilizing these resources, we educate, engage and empower adult children, spouses and relatives to make informed decisions when caring for their loved ones.

Since the newlywed days, Chelsea and I have been blessed with two beautiful children, Emily and Liam (Future CEO), who brighten our whole world. Chelsea is an incredibly gifted photographer and has continued to pursue her love for photography. In our spare time :) we enjoy flying, riding motorcycles, diving beautiful reefs and hanging out at the beach.

As of today, Chelsea Place offers assisted living, senior day care, and private in-home care. Our global vision is to transform the lives of 2.1 billion seniors worldwide through our all-new innovative and revolutionary approach to senior care!! When God gives you a vision...Go!

Deborah Spear

Executive Director – Adult Day Care

Deborah was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and is a single mother. Her daughter has blessed her with two amazing grandchildren, which are her whole world. She moved to Florida in 1999 with big dreams of starting a new chapter. Deborah did not know what that meant at the time but the Lord helped direct her steps down a truly rewarding path in the senior care industry.

After personally caring for her mother-in-law with dementia for ten years and watching her own mother be neglected by those chosen to medically care for her, Deborah became extremely passionate about caring for others. She wanted to make a genuine difference in the lives of seniors so she began working for a private home care agency. This gave Deborah the opportunity to provide the love, care and compassion that the elderly truly deserve.

Deborah started with Chelsea Place in 2012 and she accepted the position as the Executive Director of Chelsea Place Adult Day Care in 2017. She feels that this is God’s calling for her life and looks forward to sharing her love with others each and every day.
