Leadership Team

We are extremely blessed with an amazing team of people who selflessly come to work every day because they love to make a difference. This is not just a job…this is our family!

Words cannot express the amount of care and compassion that our team gives to our guests each and every day.

Kristopher & Chelsea Chana


My wife, Chelsea and I, founded Chelsea Place in 2011. We were fresh out of college and did not know what we wanted to do with our lives. I made a brief attempt to pursue a career in the insurance industry, however, it was unfulfilling and we were determined God had something more for us.

At the age of 23 and 21, we purchased an assisted living facility in Port Charlotte, FL that had recently closed. Chelsea and I were newlyweds and after our honeymoon we moved into the facility together and began to pursue our dreams. We desired to be distinct and were passionate about changing the perception of the senior care industry. Today, we are privileged to care for 12 residents in our assisted living facility. It is the perfect size, which gives us the opportunity to spoil our residents. It actually feels like a bed and breakfast nestled on a little island in the Florida Keys.

Also, we recently opened a senior day care center just five minutes from our first location and serve over 70 members living in Charlotte County. This has been an extremely rewarding process and there is nothing that is more exciting than seeing our members lives transform right before our own eyes.

We are grateful for the opportunity God has given us and we look forward to revolutionizing the senior care industry. God has blessed us with the most loving, caring and compassionate people and we are extremely grateful to work alongside such a dedicated team who help carry out our vision each and everyday. All glory to God.

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.
