Independent Living Director

Welcome to Ansel Park Independent Living!

My name is Irene Charnell and I’m the Executive Director for Ansel Park Cottages and Independent Living on the Ansel Park Senior Living campus, which also includes Assisted Living and Memory Care. I bring a passion for seniors and more than 13 years of progressive management experience working with senior living communities in California to Ansel Park. I hold a Bachelor of Science in Psychology/Kinesiology from California Polytechnic State University and will take a hands-on approach to making Ansel Park Independent Living the perfect place for you to experience the retirement you deserve.

Ansel Park’s earth-inspired, rustic design includes peaceful interior courtyards landscaped with native plants, interactive dog parks, raised community garden beds and fenced, private backyards. Our scenic campus backs up to the city’s trail system—a great place to walk your furry friend—which is accessible from our spa-like clubhouse. We offer an active, carefree lifestyle and the highest quality of care.

Residents always come first at Ansel Park, where our team of experienced associates will provide personalized care, respect and comfort to our residents. Activities and events from volunteer projects and outings to movie selections and live entertainment will be based on our residents’ interests.

Each separate living community on our continuum-of-care campus includes restaurant-style dining, spacious apartments, compassionate associates and private dining rooms where family and friends can gather for special celebrations.

Consider this your personal invitation to come by for a tour, meet our residents and let us show you how we are changing the definition of retirement at Ansel Park. Call us at (916) 407-5970 and we would be happy to answer any questions you might have.

We look forward to meeting you soon.
