DeSano Place came about almost by accident! When owners, Carl and Terri Pendleton began seeking a care facility for Terri’s 90 year old grandmother, DeSano Hepperle (or “Dee” for short), they stumbled onto a small local residential care home that was actually for sale.
The home had caring, stable staff who provided excellent care, but were doing so with very little resources. Dee ultimately chose to live in her own small home with the help of home health and hospice services and Terri’s constant professional nursing care. When Terri and Carl proposed purchasing the 9-bed facility, Grandma Dee supported the idea of her granddaughter purchasing the little home-style facility. After Dee’s passing, Terri and Carl purchased the small facility, created the DeSano Place Corporation to honor Dee’s memory, and thus began a new career of service to the elderly. DeSano Place Residential Care was created in July 2000, and has been going strong ever since.
